Motorola announces CDMA EV-DO Base Site Controller

says its new IP-BSC-DO, a highly scalable EV-DO base site controller platform, will enable CDMA operators to quickly and cost effectively upgrade their DO broadband data capacity. The new unit provides 12 times the site capacity and IP data session capacity compared to the first generation DO BSC, while using significantly less floor space. The new IP-BSC-DO is expected to be available for commercial shipment to operators worldwide this quarter. The company said the new IP-BSC-DO not only supports existing operators’ high speed data applications, but also is well suited to support advanced data applications like Voice over IP, video telephony and multimedia push-to-X services. It utilizes custom application software integrated into emerging telecom industry standard ATCA hardware platform technology. It combines EV-DO packet controller functions (PCF) with the operations and maintenance controller in a single Motorola platform for CDMA2000 EV-DO. The functions of the IP-BSC-DO include CDMA2000 EV-DO traffic and signaling control and routing between a Radio Access Network (RAN) and the Packet Data Serving Node (PDSN), authentication of users attempting to access the EV-DO system, and operator management of the IP-BSC-DO.
