Ericsson today announced its 450 MHz
CDMA2000 solution, a
cost-effective 3G solution based on industry leading 3G platforms
that support 1X and 1xEV-DO now and are ready to support 1xEV-DV
services. The solution is the next step in Ericsson's recently
launched Expander offering, which is designed to improve scalability
and provide cost-effective solutions for high growth markets.
Many operators with spectrum in the 450
MHz frequency are replacing
their existing analog NMT450 networks with CDMA2000, enabling them to
deploy state-of-the-art technology with clear voice calls and data
capabilities with higher capacity. Many countries also will allocate
new spectrum for CDMA2000 450 MHz.
"With an increasing number of
operators looking to deploy CDMA2000 in
450 MHz, this decision is proof of Ericsson's commitment to
supporting these operators with the most cost-effective 3G solution
available for CDMA2000," said Mats Granryd, president, Ericsson
Mobile Systems CDMA.
Due to the improved propagation at lower
frequencies, CDMA2000 in 450
MHz is particularly well suited for rural networks and for addressing
operators' needs for cost-efficient coverage.
Ericsson's CDMA2000 and GSM/EDGE Expander
solutions are comprised of
products and services that cover the total mobile network, and
