This article presents an approach to providing very high-data-rate downstream Internet access by nomadic users within the current CDMA physical layer architecture. Means for considerably increasing throughput by optimizing packet data protocols and by other network and coding techniques are presented and supported by simulations and laboratory measurements.(More)
To achieve unlimited concurrency and hence throughput in an area-efficient manner, a sliding block Viterbi decoder (SBVD) is implemented that combines the filtering characteristics of a sliding block decoder with the computational efficiency of the Viterbi algorithm. The SBVD approach reduces decode of a continuous input stream to decode of independent(More)
The evolution of cdma2000 1xEV-DO systems to multicarrier EV-DO (supported by 1xEV-DO Revision B) is discussed in this article. Multicarrier EV-DO offers a backward-compatible upgrade to leverage existing 1xEV-DO networks and terminals. It allows a software upgrade to multicarrier EV-DO using 1xEV-DO Revision A base station hardware. Multicarrier operation(More)
In this article we analyze performance of VoIP services over 1xEVDO-Revision A (DORev A) networks and show that high-quality VoIP with unconstrained mobility and high capacity can be achieved. Together with quality of service (QoS) requirements, we emphasize practical issues such as mobility, degradation of feedback-channel quality, and packet overheads.(More)
The IS-856 system delivers high spectral efficiency on the forward link by using dynamic link adaptation, hybrid ARQ and multi-user diversity scheduling. The channel coding/modulation scheme used on the forward link is designed to support incremental redundancy for hybrid ARQ, while maximizing the coding gain over static channels. This paper presents the(More)
Two patients with presumed impending cortical necrosis, after haemolytic uraemic syndrome in one and after concealed accidental haemorrhage in the other, were treated by local infusion of urokinase and heparin into the renal artery. Both recovered and one regained normal renal function. Local infusion of anticoagulants or thrombolytic drugs into one renal(More)
