ORLANDO, Fla., Dec. 3, 1997 - Following the most successful first-year deployment record of any digital wireless technology, the CDMA Development Group (CDG) today announced that the third annual CDMA World Congress will highlight cdmaOne globalization progress, emphasizing the rapid worldwide deployment of cdmaOne and its growing acceptance as a global standard for digital wireless technology. The event is scheduled for June 22-26, 1998, at the Raffles City Convention Center in the Republic of Singapore.

"The CDMA Development Group is extremely excited to return to the Republic of Singapore for the Third Annual CDMA World Congress," said Perry LaForge, executive director of the CDG. "Building upon the tremendous success of the establishment of cdmaOne as a premier digital wireless standard in 1997, continued accelerated growth for cdmaOne is certain in 1998. We are confident that the Third Annual CDMA World Congress will be the most exciting, informative cdmaOne-related forum to date."

The 1998 CDMA World Congress will provide attendees with an excellent venue to review the cdmaOne system deployments and marketing strategies employed around the world. As the growth of fixed wireless systems accelerates throughout the next year, the 1998 CDMA World Congress will provide an excellent opportunity to examine the progress of cdmaOne as a global standard for Wireless Local Loop (WLL). The Congress will also examine the progress of the CDG Advanced Systems Team's development of a Wideband-cdmaOne technology that meets IMT-2000 requirements and other services identified as critical by the member carriers of the CDG.

"With the bulk of accelerated growth of cdmaOne occurring in Asia, the CDG firmly believes that the Third Annual CDMA World Congress in Singapore will remain the premium venue to obtain first-hand knowledge of the latest developments in Asia's exploding wireless industry," added LaForge.
