EV-DO - Computer Definition
Also known as 1xEV-DO (one carrier EV-DO). A high data rate (HDR) version of Code Division Multiple Access 2000 (CDMA2000). Revision 0 (Rev 0) employs 16-QPSK modulation in support of a peak data rate of 2.4 Mbps on the downlink and 153 kbps on the uplink. In a fully loaded cell, 1xEV-DO supports average aggregate throughput of 4.1 Mbps on the downlinks and 660 kbps on the uplinks. 1xEV-DO can run in any band and can coexist in any type of network. Rev A supports peak speeds of 3.1 Mbps on the downlink and 1.8 Mbps on the uplink, and average speeds of 450-800 Mbps and 300-400 Mbps, respectively. Rev B, still under development, is anticipated to yield peak downlink speeds up to 4.9 Mbps per carrier, with as many as 3 carriers linked for aggregate peak downlink speed of 14.7 Mbps. See also 16-QPSK, CDMA2000, downlink, modulation, throughput, and uplink.
(EVolution-Data Optimized) A 3G digital service provided by CDMA cellular carriers worldwide such as Verizon and Sprint in the U.S. EV-DO works on EV-DO cellphones as well as laptops and portable devices that have EV-DO modems. Part of the CDMA2000 standards, EV-DO users have experienced data rates up to 800 Kbps typically with more latency than DSL and cable service. EV-DO is also known as "1xEV-DO." Revisions 0, A and B Revision 0 of EV-DO provided a data rate of 2.45 Mbps, which was increased to 3.1 Mbps with Revision A (TIA-856 Rev. A). In addition, Revision A is based entirely on the IP protocol. Revision B (TIA-856 Rev. B) is the "multicarrier" version and supports two or three channels (2x, 3x), which can be combined to increase the data rate for video and other high-speed requirements. There have been several nomenclature variations; for example, 3-channel EV-DO Rev. B has been called "3XRTT," "MC-3X," and "IMT-CDMA MultiCarrier 3X."
