Sprint Overview


Sprint - Together with NEXTELSprint is recognized worldwide for developing state-of-the-art network technologies.  Sprint developed, engineered, and built the U.S.’s first all-digital, fiber-optic transcontinental network from the ground up rather than a patchwork of assets acquired via mergers or engineered through separate business entities.

Today, the Sprint fiber-optic long-distance network has grown to over 39,000 route miles of physical fiber path.  In addition to the physical fiber, the Sprint network includes multiple physical fibers per route/path and multiple Dense Wave Division Multiplexing (DWDM) systems on each route providing virtual fibers via wavelengths.

Sprint can also meet the increasingly global needs of businesses with ownership in virtually all of the world’s major public undersea cable systems.  We own and operate the TAT 14 landing station at Manasquan, New Jersey, which provides European customers with a 10 Gbps connection between Europe and the U.S. and seamless access to the Sprint IP network.

The Sprint Tier-1 Internet backbone is one of the world’s largest IP backbones. With high-speed links and native IP architecture over DWDM technology the Sprint IP network can seamlessly interconnect diverse technologies, standards, and protocols to deliver a full suite of scalable IP products and services in whatever combinations {COMPANY NAME} desires.

In 2002, Sprint launched the first nationwide third-generation (3G) wireless network in the U.S.  Built on Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) technology, Sprint’s nationwide wireless network serves 99% of the nation’s largest cities, all major airports, and over 4,000 cities and communities throughout all 50 states, Canada, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The Sprint 3G wireless network delivers a full range of advanced devices and advanced multimedia services which are easy to use and work consistently across the entire Nationwide Sprint PCS Network.  In 2004, Sprint began deploying 1x EV-DO technology across their 3G network, now covering over 150 million people in the U.S. The next increment of EV-DO technology Release A was deployed initially in 2006, with wide commercial availability in early 2007.

Sprint also offers wireless services on the Nextel National Network, operating on a proprietary network using iDEN technology.  iDEN, developed by Motorola, is an alternative form of cellular communication operating in the specialized mobile radio (SMR) 800 MHz band adjacent to the cellular frequency band.  The Nextel National Network offers Nextel Walkie-Talkie, the first nationwide walkie-talkie service to reach coast-to-coast in the continental U.S. and Hawaii. Nextel Walkie-Talkie provides millions of Sprint customers with reliable, instant connections with incredible range.
