China Telecom to launch EV-DO Rev. B network
Alcatel-Lucent has announced that it 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 and offer increasingly sophisticated 3G services - including VoIP, voice-on-demand and media streaming. Alcatel-Lucent’s selection, which was secured by Alcatel-Lucent Shanghai Bell, its Chinese flagship company, 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). Mobile operators’ end customers can thus enjoy higher-speed access to mobile Internet-based audio and video content, as well as faster mobile network connectivity through their laptops.
