CDMA2000/LTE Workshop

CDMA2000® has been a very successful 3G technology, with 276 operators in 102 countries and territories serving more than 463 million subscribers. Today it leads 3G in terms of performance, affordability and adoption, and will continue to do so well into the future. With an elegant evolution path to faster and faster data rates and capacity efficiency, CDMA2000 provides a strong basis from which operators can grow their core 3G systems.

The technology also provides a strong base from which to expand to complementary 4G technologies. In fact, many CDMA operators will be the first to augment their existing core networks with 4G OFDM-based systems. Much of this has to do with the remarkable success they have had with 3G and CDMA in particular.

CDMA systems will continue to offer ubiquitous high performance mobile broadband and voice services with a defined evolution path, while OFDM solutions will augment CDMA2000 capacity by leveraging wider bandwidths in high-teledensity areas.

The CDMA Development Group (CDG) is offering this workshop to:

  • provide insight into the enhancements to the CDMA2000 evolution path
  • share how LTE will be integrated into CDMA2000 networks, and
  • reinforce that CDMA2000 operators can deploy LTE directly, without having to switch evolution paths.

Featuring leading infrastructure vendors Airvana, Alcatel-Lucent, Huawei, Motorola, Qualcomm and ZTE, the workshop is targeted at industry analysts, journalists, operators and vendors.
