ZTE Announces First EV-DO Revision B on CDMA2000 System

SHENZHEN, Feb. 24 /PRNewswire-Asia- AsiaNet/ --

Company Plans to Make System Available by Q3 2009

    ZTE Corporation ("ZTE"), a leading global provider of telecommunications equipment and

network solutions, today announced another technological breakthrough by achieving the

world's first EV-DO Revision B (Rev.B) VoIP Call on its CDMA2000 system, marking the first

time in the industry that a CDMA vendor achieves an impressive 9.3 Mbps download rate and

5.4 Mbps upload rate. This remarkable feat once again demonstrates ZTE's leading position in

the CDMA industry. The excellent results were announced by the company in the recently

concluded 3GPP2 Standards Conference 2009 held in Shanghai, China from February 16-24,

which was jointly organized by ZTE and China Telecom to promote next-generation wireless

broadband communications. 

    EV-DO is a telecommunications standard for the wireless transmission of data through radio

signals, typically for broadband Internet access. It was designed as an evolution of the

CDMA2000 (IS-2000) standard that would support high data rates and could be deployed

alongside a wireless carrier's voice services. It is standardized by 3rd Generation Partnership

Project 2 (3GPP2) as part of the CDMA2000 family of standards and has been adopted by

many mobile phone service providers worldwide, particularly those previously employing CDMA


    "In order to meet customers' demand in addressing advanced network evolution, we launch

the world's first EV-DO Rev.B technology several months ahead of our rivals," said Li Jian,

General Manager of CDMA Products, ZTE Corporation. "We are committed to the industry and

continue to invest and speed up large-scale commercial use of EV-DO Rev.B to leverage

telecom operators' investment in EV-DO Rev A networks."

    The company has completed the first stage of achieving EV-DO Rev.B and adopted 3-carrier

bundling technology, with each carrier having a bandwidth of 1.25 MHz. Compared with mature

commercial EV-DO Rev.A, what ZTE's EV-DO Rev.B does is to only upgrade EV-DO Rev.A's

software, with no additional hardware equipment required. Both ZTE's EV-DO Rev.A and Rev.B

adopt identical baseband chipset. 

    ZTE plans to commercialize its EV-DO Rev.B system in Q3 2009, reaffirming its leading

position in EV-DO technology development.

    In future, EV-DO Rev.B can bundle up to a maximum of 15 carriers, with a download

(forward) rate of 73.5 Mbps and an upload (reverse) rate of 27 Mbps. Among the unique

features of EV-DO Rev.B include allocating flexible bandwidth and offering better QoS, hence

enhancing user experience.

    There are now more than 105 million EV-DO users worldwide. To date, ZTE has established

70 EV-DO networks in more than 60 countries, including China, the United States, Czech,

Poland, India and Indonesia.  

    ZTE has been creating waves in the global CDMA market with global CDMA subscriber

capacity reaching 200 million. It ranks first in terms of global base station shipment as well as

taking the number one spot in China's CDMA sector by virtue of having one third of the

domestic market share. The continuous success of ZTE in the CDMA market is attributed to a

corporate policy of constantly introducing technical innovation, offering low TCO for its All-IP

CDMA2000 solutions, and quick customer response.
