CDMA2000 Data-Only To Be Superior to WCDMA and Wi-Fi, According to Alexander Resources
Delays in WCDMA Presents Significant Window of Opportunity
DALLAS, Texas, November 18, 2003 Wireless CDMA2000 1xEV-DO (Data Only) technology has significant advantages over WCDMA, the dominant UMTS technology. EV-DO requires less clear spectrum to deploy, currently delivers higher average and peak throughput, and is less expensive. That is one of the major conclusions of a new research report, "CDMA2000 1xEV-DO Opportunities, Challenges & Competitive Strategies", now available from Alexander Resources, a leading research, consulting and education firm specializing in wireless communications.
The report also concluded that Wi-Fi hotspot services will not eliminate the need for 3G wireless technologies such as CDMA2000 1xEV-DO and that the business case for Wi-Fi hotspots as a substitute for 3G is flawed. Wi-Fi hotspots are best suited to serving notebook PC users in select airport, hotel, and restaurant locations.
Additionally, delays in deployment and acceptance of WCDMA phones and networks presents a significant window of opportunity for carriers deploying EV-DO. However, wireless carriers may be in danger of missing the time-to-market, cost, and performance advantages offered by EV-DO by not accelerating deployment of this technology in their networks.
Additional conclusions found in this new report include:
