Vivo launches CDMA 2000 1xEV-DO in Brazil
Posted on 29-Oct-2004 08:15. | Tags Filed under: News.

Vivo and Lucent Technologies today announced the commercial launch of a third-generation (3G) CDMA2000 1xEV-DO network in the Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro regions. The network enables mobile high-speed data services to businesses and consumers at speeds of up to 2.4mbps (megabits per second).

Vivo is initially targeting business customers with new high-speed mobile data services such as e-mail, Internet access, remote monitoring capabilities via streaming video, location-based services that can help locate and provide directions to destinations such as restaurants and office buildings, audio and video streaming, and more. With virtual private network (VPN) connections, business customers can access the Vivo high-speed data network as an extension of their corporate local area network (LAN) or intranet, allowing them to work from any location as if they were in the office while enjoying the same speed, security, authentication and data protection.

"Our commercial CDMA2000 1xEV-DO network enables us to offer extremely fast mobile services that match or exceed the speed, security and quality of similar services offered over wireline connections," said Javier Rodriguez, vice president of technology and networks for Vivo.

Business customers in the Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro regions will be able to access the 1xEV-DO network by equipping their laptops and PDA (personal digital assistants) with 1x-EV-DO PC cards.
