EGPRS2A – Enhanced General Packet Radio Service phase 2 A
This is a variant of the generic EGPRS2 or Evolved EDGE technology. 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, and receiver diversity in the mobile. It does not support the increased symbol rate of 325Ksps unlike EGPRS2-B.
