Motorola has released a new IP-BSC-DO, a highly scalable EV-DO base site controller (BSC) platform that enables CDMA operators to quickly and cost effectively upgrade the DO broadband data capacity. The new IP BSC provides 12 times the site capacity and IP data session capacity compared to the first generation DO BSC, while using significantly less floorspace.

The new IP-BSC-DO product offers a higher bandwidth platform that not only supports existing operators' high speed data applications, but also is well suited to support advanced data applications like VoIP, video telephony and multimedia push-to-X services. The new product utilizes custom application software integrated into emerging telecom industry standard ATCA hardware platform technology to provide a highly scalable and cost efficient BSC solution.

Motorola's IP-BSC-DO features excellent scalability, increased capacity, standards-based architecture and modular design. It combines EV-DO packet controller functions 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.

"The increased capacity and bandwidth of Motorola's IP-BSC-DO significantly reduces the number of EV-DO BSC an operator needs to operate their network," said Darren McQueen, VP, home and networks mobility, Motorola. "This means they can trim both capital and operational expenses while delivering an enhanced broadband experience to their customers."

The new IP-BSC-DO is expected to be available for commercial shipment to operators worldwide in Q2 08.
