Hutchison to launch mobile b'band service via Motorola

MUMBAI: Hutchison CAT Wireless MultiMedia Ltd. (HCWML), the marketing service provider for digital CDMA mobile telephone services, is planning to begin offering mobile multimedia service to customers using a CDMA2000 1xEV-DO solution provided by Motorola before the end of this year.



"Motorola's high speed data solution will allow customers to enjoy even faster data access to e-mail, the Internet, file and music downloading plus other multimedia applications. It opens a whole new world of user experiences and adds unique value to our service offering," said HCWML chief operating officer Stephen Ngan.



During network trials, Motorola's CDMA2000 1x EV-DO solution supported peak data rates of up to 2.4 Mbps. "Motorola's CDMA2000 1x EV-DO solution is designed to integrate with current CDMA2000 1X networks to help reduce capital expenses through re-use of existing network equipment," said Motorola, Asia Pacific senior vice president Simon LK Leung. "We can readily upgrade existing Motorola base stations with the addition of a new Multi-Channel 1xEV-DO Module."



CDMA2000 1xEV-DO, the next step in CDMA evolution, is optimised for data services. It reduces the cost of delivering data, as it enables data applications at faster speeds. Motorola's CDMA2000 1xEV-DO offering provides effective cost management through planned network upgrades that will integrate with customers' current CDMA2000 1X networks to maximize the reuse of their existing infrastructure equipment.
