CDMA / W-CDMA Resources
W-CDMA (Wideband Code
Division Multiple Access), UMTS-FDD, UTRA-FDD, or IMT-2000 CDMA Direct Spread is an air interface standard found
in 3G mobile telecommunications networks. It is the basis of Japan's NTT DoCoMo's FOMA service and the
most-commonly used member of the UMTS family and sometimes used as a synonym for UMTS. -
