Ericsson Showcases CDMA2000 1xEV-DV Revision D at CTIA

3/23/2004 - Ericsson demonstrated implementation of CDMA2000 1xEV-DV revision D using Ericsson's commercially available CDMA2000 1X product portfolio.

The newly published CDMA2000 1xEV-DV revision D is today being demonstrated on Ericsson's commercial CDMA2000 1X infrastructure at the Ericsson booth at CTIA, Atlanta, USA. The CDMA2000 1xEV-DV Revision D demonstrations will provide data rate enhancements on both the forward and reverse link. The standard supports up to 3.1 Mbps peak rate on the forward and 1.8 Mbps on the reverse link with an average throughput four times greater than CDMA2000 1X on the forward link and two times greater on the reverse link.

CDMA2000 1xEV-DV supports concurrent voice and data on a single 1.25 MHz carrier and offers improved flexibility for the operators to manage data and voice services cost-efficiently. CDMA2000 1xEV-DV allows for more efficient utilization of radio resources and is fully backward compatible with 1X networks.

In addition to Ericsson's first-to-market CDMA2000 1xEV-DV revision D demonstrations, Ericsson has also entered into a revision D agreement for technology and infrastructure product development. This will provide Ericsson with early visibility to the revision D features of the QUALCOMM CSM6700 solution to accelerate their commercialization of CDMA2000 1xEV-DV.

"The standard was finalized in February 2004 and Ericsson has already verified the revision D capabilities on our commercially available CDMA2000 1X infrastructure," said Mats Granryd, president of Ericsson Mobile Systems CDMA. "This is a testament to Ericsson's commitment to operators -- providing the most future proof CDMA2000 solution on the market today."

Operators utilizing Ericsson's CDMA2000 1X solution today only need simple software and channel card upgrades when migrating to 1xEV-DV, making Ericsson's solution cost-effective and future-proof. Ericsson's CDMA2000 offering also provides operators the flexibility to offer 1xEV-DO services with a smooth and cost-effective upgrade from its existing CDMA2000 1X solution.

Ericsson is shaping the future of Mobile and Broadband Internet communications through its continuous technology leadership. Providing innovative solutions in more than 140 countries, Ericsson is helping to create the most powerful communication companies in the world.
