columnOne - What's In A Name? - by Perry La Forge
In June 1997, the CDMA Development Group (CDG) formally
unveiled the cdmaOne name and logo at the Second Annual
CDMA World Congress(R) in Singapore. Our goal in developing
this brand was to create a global technology designator for
IS-95 based CDMA systems. As cdmaOne becomes an increasingly
common term in the global wireless industry, I'd like to take
this opportunity to discuss the meaning behind the name and
the advantages it provides to CDG member companies and to
share with you our vision for wireless communication in the
years to come.

CDMA firsts in Europe and India for Motorola, NTT plans
wideband trials in Japan and Qualcomm links up with Vodafone
for CDMA/GSM integration trials.

operators already using cdmaOne technology, the ideal third
generation approach would involve an evolution from the existing
standard. Can cdmaOne deliver?

revenues flowing to Korean CDMA manufacturers, that gamble
has paid off.
