Qualcomm and Ericsson Test Software Upgrades to Improve Smartphone Performance
the way smartphones deal with the data is important aspect ,for its improvement Qualcom collaborated with Sony ericson for testing.
such as push notifications and social media updates has been tested by Ericsson and Qualcomm. The two companies say that they have successfully concluded the world’s first network integration with chipsets for 3GPP standard features HS FACH, E-FACH and UE DRX.
few features will help in improving the quality and reduce signaling in networks, lower power consumption in devices and give an improved user experience.
the main focus is to enhance features which are software driven,can be propagated across our existing portfolio of HSPA+ R8 capable chipsets as operators launch these capabilities.
The cooperation with Ericsson helps us get the market traction needed while maximizing the benefits for operators and users.”
they are working on such features which will be avalible in future in market in form of chipsets operator networks will start to realize signaling load reduction and smartphone users will start to realize increased battery life.
Nils Viklund, Director of Product Line WCDMA Radio Access Network at Ericsson said:

New features include HS FACH improved for downlink and E-FACH improved for uplink – uplink is important for social networking apps. These two features together reduce signaling, improving bandwidth capacity and providing a faster experience for the end user.The UE DRX feature saves device battery power.
