Rev. A comes to Europe

Czech Republic trunking operator MobilKom said Monday it has tapped Chinese vendor ZTE to deliver a cdma2000 1x EV-DO Revision A network.

Deployed through 2007, the Rev. A network may well be the first of its kind in Europe, which traditionally uses GSM technologies.

Rival player, Telefonica O2 Czech Republic, is also planning to deploy Rev. A over its EV-DO network after testing the technology in December.

MobilKom’s network will focus mainly on mobile data and PTT (push to talk) services, the company said.

“The Czech Republic is facing a rapidly growing demand for access to high-speed internet services. As always, it is the outlay and legacy system integration issues which delay the roll-out of these services,” said Guo Jun, the president of ZTE Central and Eastern European region.

Do you agree public funding should be used to support mobile operators to more broadly deploy Open RAN?
