EGPRS2 – Enhanced General Packet Radio Service phase 2
EGPRS2 or Evolved EDGE is an evolution of the current EDGE technology specified by the 3GPP in their Release 7 specifications. It enables higher data rates, up to 118Kbps, to be supported on both the uplink and downlink air interfaces. This is achieved through a number of enhancements including: latency reduction, support of a dual carrier in the downlink, higher order modulation including 16 QAM and 32QAM, an increase in symbol rate to 325Ksps and receiver diversity in the mobile.
