Could you multiplex 2G connections over 3G with UMA?


...so UMA can work over any generic broadband IP connection..... DSL, cable, apparently WiMAX....

...so could you run multiple UMA connections over a good-enough mobile broadband connection? Especially HSUPA which has sufficient upstream bandwidth.

There must be some usage cases for, say, 4x GSM connections being multiplexed over a single (portable) HSPA pipe. Answers on a postcard, please.

Yeah, why not? HSPA is popular some places as a DSL alternative, so this is just another application going through that pipe.

Femtocells use UMA to mux 4 handsets over one Ethernet line. Most people plug that into a DSL modem but if you had a 3G device with Ethernet handy then we could just try it out.

Why do you ask?
