The 2002 CDMA Americas Congress will feature a pre-conference workshop
titled "Migrating From TDMA to CDMA2000: Hands-On Experience"
on Tuesday, Dec. 3, 2002, at the San Diego Convention Center in San
Diego. Attendees will hear case studies from operators and infrastructure
providers who have migrated a network from TDMA to CDMA2000. Key topics
to be explored will include the economic and technical reasons for selecting
CDMA2000, issues encountered during the transition and future plans
for both voice and data services.
This workshop has been specifically designed to meet the information
needs of Latin American carriers who are implementing a TDMA to CDMA2000
migration, as well as those who are evaluating the financial and practical
feasibility of this migration path.
CDMA2000 is a viable solution for TDMA operators looking to offer next-generation
services. It is a direct path to 3G, preserves investment in the existing
IS-41 core network and allows them flexibility to migrate to 3G over
time, as the market for advanced services evolves.
