San Diego -- QUALCOMM announced that successful end-to-end test calls have been conducted utilizing prototype CDMA2000 1xEV-DO Revision A networks and handsets. This marks a major milestone in the development of CDMA and the Rev. A standard, accelerating the realization of the next evolution of the EV-DO technologies that support the 3.1 Mbps forward and 1.8 Mbps reverse link data rates and higher system capacity required for next-generation wireless multimedia. The test calls were made using equipment based on QUALCOMM's Cell Site ModemTM (CSMTM) CSM6800TM chipset for base stations and the Mobile Station ModemTM (MSMTM) MSM6800TM chipset for mobile handsets.
"We are excited about EV-DO Rev. A commercializing higher speeds, which will support next-generation multimedia content and pleased to see the ongoing evolution of EV-DO standards to deliver additional enhancements, further extending opportunities for new voice and data applications," said Edward Salas, vice president of network planning for Verizon Wireless.
EV-DO Rev. A technology provides technological advancements for richer multimedia services. Higher data throughput and lower latency with Quality of Service (QoS) deliver an enhanced user experience for delay-sensitive applications including VoIP and video telephony. Support for EV-DO Gold and Platinum Multicast services enable the delivery of high-quality video and audio to a large number of users simultaneously. Successful implementation of the EV-DO Rev. A standard paves the way for the deployment of further evolutions of CDMA technology, with efforts currently underway to develop next-generation standards that will support even higher data rates and more advanced broadcasting capabilities.
