Airvana rolls out EV-DO Rev. A software Release 8.0

Claims to increase capacity and performance of mobile broadband networks

By CBR Staff Writer

Airvana has released EV-DO Rev. A software Release 8.0, which it claims to allow operators to increase the capacity and performance of their mobile broadband networks through a software upgrade of their existing radio access network equipment.

According to Airvana, the EV-DO Release 8.0 enhances the Radio Network Controller (RNC) load balancing function and ensures that the resources within the radio access network are distributed to serve smartphone and data card traffic in an effective manner.

The company claims that the new release optimises the way network control messages are transmitted, enabling existing infrastructure to handle more devices, call activity and in-session user mobility. Radio network performance enhancements result in higher data rates for users in weak signal areas.

EV-DO Release 8.0 will be available to operators through the company’s newly-established relationship with Ericsson. Ericsson recently acquired Nortel’s CDMA business and LTE assets in North America and Airvana’s agreement with Nortel was assigned to Ericsson as part of the acquisition.
