Abstract: As wireless data networks are becoming an essential element in our daily life, service providers are struggling to fulfill the high data rate requirements to support wireless data applications. cdma2000 1xEV-DV, developed by the third generation partnership project 2 (3GPP2), is one of the latest standards promising to fulfill the high data rate requirements of the third generation wireless technologies. In this paper, the performance of cdma2000 1xEV-DV reverse packet data channel is investigated. In particular, based on the properties of the 1xEV-DV turbo encoder, lower bounds on the probabilities of data sub-packets acceptance are derived. Using these probabilities, expressions for the expected file transmission time and effective data rate are obtained for both the error-free and noisy acknowledgement channels.

Keywords: wireless networks; cdma2000; performance analysis; high data rate; reverse packet data channel; file transmission time; effective data rate.
