Many operators with spectrum in the 450 MHz frequency are replacing their existing analog NMT450 networks with CDMA2000, enabling them to deploy state-of-the-art technology with clear voice calls and data capabilities with higher capacity. Many countries also will allocate new spectrum for CDMA2000 450 MHz.
"With an increasing number of operators looking to deploy CDMA2000 in 450 MHz, this decision is proof of Ericsson's commitment to supporting these operators with the most cost-effective 3G solution available for CDMA2000," said Mats Granryd, president, Ericsson Mobile Systems CDMA.
Due to the improved propagation at lower frequencies, CDMA2000 in 450 MHz is particularly well suited for rural networks and for addressing operators' needs for cost-efficient coverage.
