Qualcomm Sheds Light on EV-DO Rev. B
Apr 7, 2006, 3:06 PM by (staff)
Qualcomm today announced that it expects to have EV-DO Revision B chipsets ready to ship to phone manufacturers next year. They expect that data cards using this new chipset will be available by the end of 2007 with handsets to follow in 2008. With this announcement Qualcomm revealed the speed expectations of the latest edition of the EV-DO wireless broadband standard. Rev. B will increase download speeds to a maximum of 4.9 Mbps per channel - a significant increase over Rev. A's 3.1 Mbps, however upload speeds are apparently not enhanced. The Revision B chipset will also be able to combine three channels to further increase download and upload speeds to 14.7 Mbps and 5.4 Mbps respectively. Sprint expects to launch Rev. A early next year, so it is unlikely they will roll out Revision B in the near future. Verizon has not yet announced Revision A rollout plans, so it is possible the carrier may choose Revision B instead.
