“In line with Motorola Solutions’ ongoing support of the iDEN network, Motorola Mobility is committed to working with Sprint,” said Mark Shockley, senior vice president, Motorola Mobility. “We look forward to bringing exciting new devices to market, including compelling next-generation push-to-talk solutions in the coming year.”Network Vision is a blueprint for a multiyear initiative intended to provide customers the best network experience available today, enhancing service, creating network flexibility, reducing operating costs, and improving environmental sustainability. The focus of the plan is on upgrading the existing CDMA network while providing technology flexibility for the Sprint 4G platform. Taking advantage of this latest generation of technology, Sprint will be able to deploy multiple spectrum bands on a single platform – for example, 800MHz and 1900MHz on CDMA. This will improve CDMA in-building penetration and ensure the performance of PTT on CDMA matches or surpasses that of iDEN. KEY FACTS
