Sprint Announces Plans to Accelerate Release of CDMA EV-DO Rev A
Posted on 4-Aug-2006 00:27. | Tags Filed under: News.



Sprint is ahead of plan for the expansion and evolution of the Sprint Power Vision network, that allows users to access audio, video and data applications with handheld and connection card devices.

Under the accelerated schedule, Sprint plans to begin its roll out of the upgraded technology known as CDMA EV-DO Revision A during 4Q 2006 with coverage expected to reach more than 40 million people by year end.

Sprint says with the evolution to EV-DO Revision A, users in markets where it is rolled out, will experience faster average download speeds of 450 - 800 kbps; and average upload speeds of 300 - 400 kbps. These data rates can enable richer applications and services such as high-speed video telephony, music on demand, video messaging, large file uploads and high performance push-to-talk capability.

Overall, Sprint plans to reach more than 200 million people in the U.S. with mobile broadband data services (both EV-DO Revisions 0 and A) in 220 major metropolitan areas and 908 airports across the country with its Power Vision network by the end of 2006. By 3Q 2007, Sprint's Power Vision network will be completely upgraded to the faster EV-DO Revision A.

Sprint has successfully completed the first EV-DO Revision A data connection over its network in San Diego, CA. This development combined with a series of other positive performance tests drove the decision to speed up the deployment plan. Additionally, Sprint has been demonstrating applications such as all IP video telephony, high performance push-to-talk (walkie-talkie service), multi-user video conferencing, real time gaming and video streaming of both content and live web cams simultaneously.

In conjunction with the rollout of the upgraded mobile broadband network, Sprint will market a variety of EV-DO Revision A compatible devices, starting first with connection cards offered in PCMCIA Type II, USB, and ExpressCard form factors. These devices will also work on the current Sprint network.
