Meeting June 12, 2007. Workshop June 13.
Chair: Peter Rysavy, Rysavy Research
This PCCA meeting (symposium format) will focus on the capabilities, deployment, inner workings, devices and applications of High Speed Packet Access (HSPA), the name given to the combined capabilities of High Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA) and High Speed Uplink Packet Access (HSUPA).
