cdma Development Group's Radio Location Forum Leads cdmaOne™ Carriers Towards Resolution of FCC E911 Phase 2 Mandate

COSTA MESA, Calif., April 6, 1998 -- The CDMA Development Group (CDG) today announced a successful conclusion to the cdmaOne Radio Location Forum held recently in Dallas, Texas. The forum provided a unique opportunity for cdmaOne carriers to examine the latest state-of-the-art technology available from radio location vendors that will provide a solution to the FCC E911 Phase 2 mandate.

The CDG is currently reviewing results from its member companies’ evaluations on a variety of E911 technology solutions.

"The CDG’s Radio Location Forum was a tremendous success. We will continue to provide our member companies with cutting-edge technology forums such as this," said Perry LaForge, executive director of the CDG. "This is all part of our continued evolution of cdmaOne, and demonstrates the strength of the technology in providing a wealth of value added location-based services."

LaForge added, "The next step is for our member companies to initiate large scale system trials with the various providers of the location solutions and to provide detailed information to the CDG once they have completed the next phase of testing. We anticipate that a number of test groups will be forming over the next few months and eagerly await the result of the trials." At the conclusion of the trial phase, the CDG member companies will suggest approaches for standardization of the location technologies.

Presenters at the forum included US Wireless Corporation, Allen Telecom-Grayson Wireless Division, TruePosition, Harris Corporation, SnapTrack, Tendler Cellular, Motorola, Evidence Tracking Systems, QUALCOMM, KSI, Lucent Technologies, Radix Technologies, Nortel, Corsair Communications and SigmaOne Communications
