The proposal affords both GSM and ANSI-41 operators a choice of Direct Sequence or Muticarrier modes and ensures that they preserve their investments into the next generation G3G CDMA.
G3G CDMA outlines two 5 MHz channel schemes for radio transmission: "Direct Spread," which is comprised of a single 5 MHz carrier, and "Multi- carrier," which is comprised of multiple 1.
The agreement effectively addresses the needs of both the W-CDMA and cdma2000 communities to form specifications for a Direct-Sequence CDMA mode, a Multi-Carrier CDMA mode and a Time Division Duplex CDMA mode within the harmonized G3G CDMA standard.
The document will serve as a blueprint of agreed-upon technical issues for regional standards bodies to consider and implement as they establish a final G3G CDMA standard.
The new G3G proposal provides details for achieving this vision.
The Operators Harmonization Group, a panel of representatives from more than 40 of the world's largest wireless operators and vendors, including Sprint PCS, has proposed an agreement to develop a harmonized set of wireless standards for the next generation of wireless technology known as G3G, or global third-generation.
The G3G standards are still in flux, but by choosing the Synopsys UMTS RDK, along with COSSAP, we're able to research advanced receiver techniques for future W-CDMA development, whilst tracking recent moves in standards organizations such as 3GPP.
TRL is using Synopsys' G3G UMTS reference design kit (RDK), the industry's first design kit to provide detailed UMTS layer 1 descriptions and system-level testbenches.
