EV-DO Advanced software helps operators meet surging demand for mobile broadband

CDMA subscribers globally can now enjoy a vastly improved data experience and faster speeds, even in high density areas. With EV-DO Advanced*, Nokia Siemens Networks introduces a set of features that enable more efficient use of network resources. These features increase data capacity by up to 40% in loaded cells thereby helping operators economically manage greater data traffic volumes, without the need for hardware investment, via a straightforward software upgrade.

“We are fully focused on technologies that enable a superior mobile broadband experience, and EV-DO Advanced is one such development. It is a major driver of CDMA evolution and adding this to our portfolio reflects our strong commitment to the technology standard,” said Scott Mottonen, head of the CDMA/LTE business line, Nokia Siemens Networks. “By dynamically adding network capacity where and when it is needed through an incremental, selective and cost-effective upgrade, EV-DO Advanced addresses growing demand for data.”

Nokia Siemens Networks’ EV-DO Advanced software comprises a number of capabilities** that increase network capacity, deliver higher data rates and prioritize and allocate bandwidth better to improve overall network efficiency. In addition, these features improve mobile device performance and extend battery life. This announcement follows the company’s previously launched 1X Advanced feature, both of which strengthen its portfolio and are further evidence of its commitment to the CDMA roadmap.

Nokia Siemens Networks’ EV-DO Advanced software is commercially available and is currently being rolled out by a leading operator. In addition to the software, Nokia Siemens Networks also offers global expertise and a complete portfolio of services including consultancy, design and planning, systems integration, deployment, optimization, maintenance and managed services for CDMA networks.
