White Paper Highlights Key Lessons Learned and Offers Considerations for Sustaining the Health and Rapid Growth of the Wireless Industry


IDC has released a white paper entitled ‘Past as a Guidepost to the Future: Reflections on the Continued Growth of the Mobile Communications Industry. The white paper reconciles lessons learned from the history of mobile communications with current and emerging market realities, and concludes that while the industry should remain open to new technologies, the global mobile industry should focus on expanding its existing ecosystem. The conclusion bodes well for CDMA2000®, whose current performance and evolution path is well positioned to sustain a robust and profitable mobile communications industry.
