I am trying to figure out if we can advertize a product that integrates the HE910 as 4G.
A year back many cellular carriers were advertizing their UMTS network as 4G. I can also find several articles that mention the ITU as expanded the definition of 4G to include HSPA+ but this is actually an interpretation of the ITU’s statement. I can’t find a clear indication that HSPA+ at 21Mbps is 4G.
I receive a lot of pressure from management that we can’t release a new product and call it 3G but at the same time we do not want to be at risk of claims of false advertising.
Is there a formal definition of 4G that includes HSPA+?
the HE910 is a 3G product (HSPA+ 3GPP Release 7) and it is not capable to work on 4G LTE networks.
HSPA+ is an evolution of HSPA and it has been defined by technical standards 3GPP Release 7. It can be considered a 3.75G technology
So I would stand more on 3GPP standards than on cellular carriers’ marketing terminology 🙂
