The CDMA Development Group (CDG) and the Third Generation Partnership Project 2 (3GPP2) announced that their collaboration has achieved several key milestones towards defining and developing a well planned and technically sound evolution of cdma2000 technology specifications.
A system requirements document (SRD) for the next air interface evolution of cdma2000 was approved by 3GPP2 last May.
These requirements were developed in close cooperation with CDG operator member companies and other key industry players to ensure that future market needs are fully addressed by the resulting specifications.
This common framework agreement was based upon a consolidated framework supported by industry leaders including Lucent Technologies
According to the SRD, using scalable bandwidths up to 20 MHz, the forward link and reverse link peak data rates should be capable of up to 500 Mbps and 150 Mbps in a stationary indoor environment, and up to 100 Mbps and 50 Mbps in a mobile environment, respectively.
