LONDON, May 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Actix, the leader in Network Status performance engineering and optimization solutions, is announcing new support capabilities for HSPA+/Evolved within Actix Analyzer and Actix Spotlight solutions.

Actix is now able to deliver HSPA+/Evolved troubleshooting and optimization capabilities within all elements of its Analyzer, Spotlight, Radioplan and Actix One solutions.

Already established as the industry standard for both analysis and performance engineering, Actix software is constantly being extended to cover the newest technologies, and offers the broadest set of interfaces to third party data through a library that covers hundreds of different vendor formats.

The extension of Actix analysis and optimization software to cover HSPA+ allows operators to take maximum advantage of the capacity and throughput benefits of 3GPP Release 7, delivering faster, more efficient problem resolution and reduced training costs.

HSPA+/Evolved are upgrades to the existing widespread 3GPP HSDPA/HSUPA capabilities, and aims at improving the mobile broadband user experience by delivering higher throughputs and lower latency for data services. This is achieved through higher order modulation and the use of Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) antennae. Existing networks can be upgraded to HSPA+/Evolved and benefit from nearly double the capacity for voice and data services - an important benefit during a tough economic cycle. Many operators are now looking more closely at HSPA+/Evolved as a step on the upgrade path to faster data speeds and more capacity for mobile broadband to their mobile networks.

Operators are working out the best way to make the most of their networks ahead of expensive outlays for LTE spectrum and equipment, and through deployments of HSPA+/Evolved they are already seeing data rates of up to 21 Mbps, said Keith Reed, Network Performance Engineering Product Director at Actix. Actix is helping to ease the upgrade process by adding support for HSPA+/Evolved within our Analyzer/Spotlight solutions, allowing existing customers to use familiar tools with this new technology.

Actix Analyzer and Spotlight offer advanced features that enable the user to create a set of self-defined analyses to investigate a wide range of radio issues, including a comprehensive set of built-in tools for coverage and missing neighbours analysis. Analyzer/ Spotlight also allow for detailed analysis of individual calls, a particularly useful ability at the early stages of a new technology roll out.
