Ericsson unveils cdma2000 1X radio access network components
Ericsson unveils cdma2000 1X radio access network components Ericsson today introduced two cdma2000 1X radio access network components. The cdma2000 Base Station Controller 1120 and the cdma2000 Radio Base Station 1127 are being exhibited at the CDMA Americas Congress in San Diego, CA. The cdma2000 1X radio access network will enable the mobile Internet through packet data services with speeds up to 144 kbps, Quality of Service and mobile IP for "always on, always connected" functionality. "We are tremendously excited to be introducing these industry leading 3G products," said Åke Persson, president of Ericsson CDMA Systems. "Ericsson has developed a cdma2000 radio access platform that is uniquely designed to improve our customers' profitability by reducing costs throughout the network lifecycle, from initial capital purchase through installation, maintenance and operation." Focused on providing sustainable value into the future, Ericsson's cdma2000 radio access network has been designed to provide operators with an easy upgrade to cdma2000 1xEV Data Only (DO) and cdma2000 1xEV Data Voice (DV). Operators now have a choice of 3G radio equipment with cost- effective migration that protects their capital investment as they evolve from cdma2000 1X to the newly defined 1xEV options. cdma2000 1xEV will improve data rates within 1.25 MHz of spectrum. The first phase, 1xEV DO, will support data rates in excess of 2 Mbps for an efficient, best effort approach for data delivery. Phase 2 - 1xEV DV- focuses on real-time voice and data capabilities and performance enhancements. Ericsson is participating actively in defining the standards for 1xEV. "The rapidly evolving CDMA technology calls for cdma2000 products capable of supporting evolution beyond 1X. In order to meet critical operator requirements for on-demand capacity growth, we are offering highly scaleable and flexible cdma2000 products," Mr. Persson continued. "This is yet another illustration of Ericsson bringing enhanced value to operators through technology innovation and leadership" By enabling the mobile Internet with an industry leading cdma2000 solution Ericsson opens up new markets and revenue opportunities for operators.

It is scaleable from 500 to 10,000 Erlangs and supports both the open A interface to the MSC and the open R-P interface to the packet core network defined in the IOS standard. The common platform uses ATM/IP for efficient node-to-node and inter-systems communications. The BSC 1120 provides connectivity for both high-speed data and high quality voice services and can be used by operators to build networks that will evolve to an all-IP architecture. About the cdma2000 Radio Base Station 1127 The cdma2000 Radio Base Station (RBS) 1127 is the latest step in the evolution of Ericsson's patented compact RBS design and delivers both multi-carrier support and increased coverage in a compact enclosure. The RBS 1127 continues Ericsson's CDMA tradition of delivering high life-cycle value. Its delivery of high capacity in a compact package meets dense urban network requirements while minimizing space requirements. The modular design also addresses rural coverage issues. The RBS 1127 supports various deployment scenarios either indoor or outdoor, and is ideal for wall, pole or roof-mounted, or existing tower installations. cdmaOne is a trademark of the CDMA Development Group. cdma2000 is a trademark of the Telecommunications Industry Association.
