Nokia Siemens Networks today announced a new technology for HSPA+ networks that will allow devices to connect to two separate cells at one time. Nokia Siemens says that Multiflow can be used when a device is at the edge of one cell to connect to the neighboring cell simultaneously. The name "Multiflow" was chosen because data flows in two different directions when the device is connected to two different base stations. Nokia Siemens says the technology makes more efficient use of network resources, and delivers twice the data speed and up to 50% faster response times compared to today's HSPA+ networks. Nokia Siemens says that network operators can upgrade from their current HSPA+ deployments to Multiflow with a software usdate at their base stations. Nokia Siemens expects Multiflow to be 3GPP standardized by mid 2012 and launched commercially by mid 2013.
