Alcatel-Lucent Supplies CDMA/EV-DO Rev. B to China Telecom

Alcatel-Lucent has been selected as the sole equipment provider for China Telecom's CDMA/EV-DO Rev. B network at the Expo 2010 in Shanghai.

Alcatel-Lucent's solution, which has been installed in the United States Pavilion, enables China Telecom to boost its mobile broadband network speeds by up to three times.

The installation follows an earlier trial of the multi-carrier Rev. B technology with China Telecom in three districts of Shanghai.

The Alcatel-Lucent EV-DO Rev. B solution is a software upgrade that builds on operators' existing CDMA base stations and enables a two- to three-fold improvement in the forward link peak data rates (6.2 Mbps for 2.5MHz and 9.3 Mbps for 3.75 MHz); peak data rates for the reverse link are improved proportionally (3.6 Mbps for 2.5 MHz and 5.4 Mbps for 3.75 MHz).

Financial terms were not disclosed.
