About UMB:
Ultra Mobile Broadband (UMB) is the brand name to identify and promote next-generation products and services that will be supported by the next air interface evolution of the family of CDMA2000 standards that was defined by the 3GPP2 Systems Requirements Document (SRD) and its Technology Evolution Framework (TEF) for 3GPP2 networks.  UMB represents a major breakthrough in the evolution of CDMA2000.  It is a total solution that combines the best aspects of CDMA, TDM, LS-OFDM, OFDM, and OFDMA in a single air interface using sophisticated and highly optimized control and signaling mechanisms.  It also incorporates advanced antenna techniques such as Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) and Space Division Multiple Access (SDMA).  The combination of these techniques, and many other technological advancements, enables UMB to economically support a large selection of advanced, high-performance, IP-based, concurrent and converged services that require extremely low latencies, low jitter, and improved spectral efficiencies.
