Canadian Bell Mobility to deploy CDMA EV-DO network
Posted on 2-Jun-2005 11:40 | Tags Filed under: News



Bell Mobility has signed an estimated US$126 million (C$160 million) multi-year contract with Nortel for equipment to enable a cellular network that promises to be the country's fastest.

The network, to be based on the CDMA2000 1X and 1xEV-DO (Evolution-Data Optimized) third generation (3G) wireless technology, will help enhance the user experience by enabling such services as video mail and messaging, wireless gaming and content streaming at speeds close to high-speed wireline connections.

Bell Mobility customers will be able to download data on their mobile devices at speeds up to 2.4 megabits per second with average speeds of 300-500 Kbps (kilobits per second). Bell Mobility announced its intention to build the EV-DO network in December 2004, and the company plans to offer initial EV-DO services in select markets in 2005.

Under the new agreement with Bell Mobility, Nortel will provide CDMA2000 1X radio base stations, base station controllers, switching platforms and other related equipment. Nortel will also supply Bell Mobility with CDMA2000 1xEV-DO equipment for initial deployment in Toronto and Montreal.
