Is 3G here yet or are we stuck on 2.5G?
Posted on 19-Sep-2003 23:24 | Filed under: News



Great article on News Factor Network, about 3G concepts, how public perceive this and how carriers market this. Comments from Yankee Group ad Datacom Research authors.

"...how one defines third-generation wireless service, though. Most industry insiders agree that WCDMA and CDMA 2000 are 3G technologies. (WCDMA, or wideband code division multiple access, also is known as UMTS.)

Both WCDMA and CDMA have been rolled out in some parts of the world -- WCDMA by operators using GSM/GPRS networks and CDMA 2000 1X by those on CDMA-based mobile-phone systems.

However, 'there is some debate over the definition of 3G,' Datacomm Research president Ira Brodsky said in an interview with NewsFactor. 'We define it based on what the technology does for the end-user. CDMA 2000 1X EVDO (data only) does provide dramatic new capabilities, such as streaming media , live video or music -- things that could not be done with phones before. It's the equivalent of the cable-modem broadband experience.'
