This article presents key enhancements to CDMA2000 1×EV-DO systems embodied in 1×EV-DO Revision A. These enhancements provide significant gains in spectral efficiency and substantial improvements in QoS support relative to 1×EV-DO Revision 0. In particular, 1×EV-DO Revision A approximately doubles the uplink spectral efficiency and doubles the number of terminals with delay-sensitive applications that can be simultaneously supported on the system. It provides substantial reduction in latencies (approximately 50 percent) during both connection setup and the connected state. It offers comprehensive network control over terminal and application performance to enable the desired trade-offs between capacity and latency/ fairness, thereby providing full QoS support and enhanced user experience. It also provides coverage improvement (approximately 1.5 dB) relative to 1×EV-DO Revision 0. This enables operators to offer services such as VoIP, video telephony, mobile network gaming, push-to-talk, Web browsing, file transfer, and video on demand to a larger number of simultaneous users. The 1×EV-DO Revision A network can provide downlink sector capacity of 1500 kb/s and uplink capacity of 500 kb/s (two-way receive diversity) or 1200 kb/s (four-way receive diversity) with 16 active users per sector, using just 1.25 MHz of the spectrum.
