Mark Lemmo, Executive Vice President of InterDigital, stated that, "Supporting Samsung with an accelerated schedule of its field trials is important to us because these trials will demonstrate the superiority of B-CDMA
We hope to supplement our current service with the additional features that B-CDMA
technology will provide.
By establishing this relationship with Worldwide Wireless, we are taking a significant step towards the commercial deployment of B-CDMA
products in 1998," said Greg Webb, Chief Executive Officer of InterDigital.
This demonstrates to telecommunications companies the viability of B-CDMA
technology," said Gregory Webb, Chief Executive Officer of InterDigital.
As a result, the B-CDMA
ASIC already contains a significant percentage of the technology building blocks that will be used to design InterDigital's new FDD ASIC.
InterDigital and Siemens entered into a broad alliance based on InterDigital's B-CDMA
air interface technology and UltraPhone(R) digital wireless local loop products in December of 1994.
Operating expenses increased versus last year's first quarter due largely to the ramp-up of development costs for B-CDMA
wireless local loop system development after last year's first quarter and expenses associated with the Nokia project.
Samsung will participate, together with InterDigital and Siemens AG, in the development of B-CDMA
19, 1999--InterDigital Communications Corporation (ASE: IDC) announced today a change in the structure of its B-CDMA
Samsung will also provide 35 engineering man-years to the alliance for the development of B-CDMA
Along with our licensing success and the addition of Alcatel as our third alliance partner, we made significant progress in the commercialization of B-CDMA
technology-based products and in the further development of our technology.
The products are being deployed for wide band B-CDMA
applications in the emerging WLL marketplace.
