A typical ISDN line actually contains two digital phone lines, each capable of transmitting 64 kilobits
- 64,000 bits of data - every second.
This software enables mobile operators to accommodate data traffic at speeds of up to 153 kilobits
per second in addition to the increased voice capacity and advanced features CDMA2000 1X provides.
Once the CDMA2000 1X voice upgrades are successfully installed and tested, Lucent will begin to ready the networks to accommodate data traffic at speeds of up to 153 kilobits
per second for mobile Internet applications.
