    Hi,

    If CDMA 1.25Mhz is capable of delivering speed up to 10 Mbps then

    why CDMA(5Mhz) = WCDMA is choosen?

    Regards

    hi mkt,

    CDMA2000 works on 1.25 MHz, while WCDMA works on 5MHz. Both technologies are incompatible. So if your network is in CDMA2000, it won’t accept WCDMA..
    CDMA2000 : US patented, easy evolution from 2G to 3G

    WCDMA: no patents, open technology, difficult evolution from 2G (from GSM…). Regarded as worldwide standard.

    Hi Pix,
    What is the difference between UMTS and WCDMA?

    What i mean to say was that when it was felt that existing 2G TDMA/FDMA air interface is not capable to support 3G data rates a need for different air interface standard was felt.

    They could have choosen CDMA 2000 instead of going for WCDMA.

    As going with former you need only 1.25 Mhz of BW whereas in case of latter you need 5Mhz spectrum,

    Spectrum is a limited resource.

    regards
