CDMA2000 1x EVDO Rev A is a 3rd Generation (3G) wireless solution for high-speed mobile Internet access (also known as IS 856-A). This paper provides insight into key enhancements of 3G EV-DO Revision A and Revision B which are not previously reported and demonstrated through experimentation and measurements. It provides statistics of EV-DO Rev A under different measurement environments and its comparison for performance evaluation. The results of this paper can be useful for building EV-DO simulators as well as preparing correct/fine-tuned simulation model for 3G EV-DO Rev A/ Rev B.
