CDMA, or Code Division Multiple Access, is a mobile telephone standard that exists pretty much worldwide. Now China Telecom has helped launch a non-profit alliance. In the alliance are the cell phone-related heavyweights such as Microsoft, Huawei and Samsung. Chair of the alliance is Yang Xiaowei who is also vice president of the China Telecom Corporation.
Yang said mobile phones create more and more divese demands. He said as 3G and mobile internet technologies were introduced into everyday life, more individualistic and diverse demands for terminals have appeared.
CDMA, or Code Division Multiple Access, is a method for transmitting multiple digital signals simultaneously over the same carrier frequency, and is most widely applied for cell phones.
EnglishNews.cn reported that Yang said sales of CDMA terminals topped 32 million units last year, four times the amount in 2008.
