Motorola Demos CDMA 1xEV-DO Rev. A Handset

At this week's CTIA Wireless 2006 show in Las Vegas, Motorola is demonstrating its end-to-end CDMA 1xEV-DO Rev. A solution, including a prototype CDMA 1xEV-DO Rev. A handset.

CDMA 1xEV-DO Rev. A, with downlink speeds of up to 3.1 Mbps and uplink speeds of up to 1.8 Mbps, is an enhancement to CDMA 1xEV-DO mobile broadband access that combines voice and data on a single carrier.

Motorola is using the EV-DO Rev. A demonstration to show real-time interactive gaming applications, video/audio streaming, and VoIP and inter-technology video telephony calls.

The calls are connected via Canopy wireless broadband and 1xEV-DO Rev.A networks and routed through the Motorola IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) (referred to as Multimedia Domain (MMD) by the 3GPP2). VoIP and video telephony are among the applications that are optimized for commercial service on a CDMA 1xEV-DO Rev. A network due to the higher bandwidth, lower data latency, and improved quality of service inherent with the technology.

Motorola's CDMA 1xEV-DO Rev. A infrastructure solution is planned for commercial availability in Q4 2006.
