About DO-Advanced and Network Vision

Is there any evidence that Sprint actually deployed DO-Advanced on its Network Vision towers as part of its "improved 3G" strategy? I thought I remember hearing that DO-Advanced would be part of Network Vision. The benefits of DO-Advanced in terms of network load balancing, smart carrier management, distributed network scheduler and single carrier multi-link features would definitely help the EVDO Rev A network.

 

The article below under the EVDO DO-Advanced confirms that existing Rev A devices back in 2011 could support DO-Advanced since its mainly a software upgrade on the tower side.

I have never seen any network vision materials mentioning DO-Advanced. Just went back and looked again, nothing. It really does not make sense for Verizon or Sprint to spend any additional money on a dead technology with a planned nationwide LTE rollout. Instead I think the focus is going to be on clearing as much spectrum as possible for LTE.

Sprint has said publicly at least once, but I think more than once, that they are upgrading to DO Advanced as a part of Network Vision upgrades. All the work to add DO Advanced capabilities can be achieved with the new base stations being installed, software and at the Sprint's MSC's.

I've seen 1x Advanced but never DO Advanced?

 

Edit *never mind I have seen the light*

Right. EV-DO Advanced is really about network management. It is not the same as EV-DO Rev B and should be transparent to end users.

Is there anymore info on this? Such as when it's expected to roll out? I'm excited about this because EvDo performance doesn't degrade over a distance as much as GSM/LTE technologies do.

 

No.
