Ericsson's CDMA2000 1xEV-DO solution will support such 3G applications as streaming audio, video and data transfers. Deployment is expected to begin in Q1 2003 and the 1xEV-DO network is expected to be commercial by mid-2003.

"Vsper has an aggressive plan to roll out 3G data services across multiple Brazilian markets and we are committed to supporting them with our leading products and expertise in 3G services and applications," said ke Persson, president of Ericsson Mobile Systems CDMA.

Offering peak data rates up to 2.4 Mbps in a standard 1.25 MHz carrier, with a minimum average throughput of 600 Kbps, Ericsson's CDMA2000 1xEV-DO solution is fully compliant with IS-856. It can be simply added to existing CDMA2000 radio base stations or overlaid on an existing CDMA network, enabling operators to provide customers with high speed Mobile Internet capabilities while efficiently utilizing radio spectrum.
