Lucent to deploy CDMA EV-DO in Mexico
Posted on 19-Apr-2005 01:22. | Tags Filed under: News.

Grupo Iusacell, S.A. and Lucent Technologies entered an agreement to deploy a fast third-generation (3G) CDMA2000 EV-DO network in the cities of Mexico, Monterrey and Guadalajara.

This network will enable Iusacell to provide mobile high-speed data services such as video clips of news, sports and entertainment events and access to applications stored behind corporate firewalls including e-mail and intranets to businesses and consumers at speeds of up to 2.4 Mbps (megabits per second).

Lucent will upgrade existing base stations to support CDMA2000 EV-DO technology, enabling Iusacell's customers in the cities of Mexico, Monterrey and Guadalajara to access the high-speed network using laptops and PDAs equipped with 1xEV-DO PC cards. As part of the project, Lucent also will provide additional mobile switching centers and its Flexent Mobility Server to provide an open Internet Protocol (IP) interface to the data network. Lucent Worldwide Services will provide deployment and network integration services.

With virtual private network (VPN) connections, business customers can access the Iusacell 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. The 1xEV-DO network can be accessed from any location where a cell phone works, including airports and corporate offices.
