Enhanced UMTS, E-UMTS, is a UMTS evolution step which provides bit rates higher than 2 Mbit/s in the uplink and downlink directions over a 5 MHz frequency carrier. It enables the provision of new wideband services and a significant reduction of the price per bit, running over flexible Quality of Service, QoS, enabled IP based access and core networks, and making possible an effective end-to-end packet based transmission. European projects (e.g., IST-SEACORN) have proposed a set of enhancements to UMTS, which include, among others, advanced modulation and radio transmission techniques, improved strategies for IP routing, and QoS assurance.
