Telecom New Zealand to Deploy CDMA2000 EV-DO Revision A
Posted on 20-Jun-2006 13:01. | Tags Filed under: News.



Telecom New Zealand and Lucent Technologies have announced an upgrade on Telecom's existing CDMA2000 1xEV-DO mobile network with CDMA2000 1xEV-DO Revision A (Rev. A) technology, which will enable Telecom to support faster, lower latency connections and a range of new services such as enhanced push-to-talk, multi-player gaming, laptop-based video conferencing, and Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP).

As part of the first phase of the rollout, worthUS $10 million, Telecom plans to make Rev. A technology available in some areas in New Zealand by Christmas, with additional market deployments following in 2007.

Telecom New Zealand is Lucent's first publicly announced Rev. A customer in the Asia-Pacific region.

CDMA2000 1xEV-DO Revision A is an enhanced version of CDMA2000 1xEV-DO that increases the efficiency, data speeds and capacity of existing EV-DO networks, with maximum download (forward link) speeds of up to 3.1 Megabits per second (Mbps), and upload (reverse link) speeds of up to 1.8 Mbps. These increased forward and reverse link data speeds reduce data latency and will enable operators such as Telecom New Zealand to support more advanced, real-time services.

Lucent built and manages Telecom New Zealand's CDMA2000 1X network and upgraded it to support CDMA2000 1xEV-DO technology in 2004. As part of the CDMA2000 1xEV-DO Rev. A project, Lucent Worldwide Services will provide deployment, RF optimization and managed services for the network upgrade.
