Five major wireless companies operating are pushing for a standard for the next generation mobile communications in the US that would be incompatible with developments in Europe and Japan.
Sprint PCS, Lucent Technologies, Motorola Cellular Infrastructure Group, Nortel and Qualcomm are promoting a standard that is based on CDMAOne, a popular network in the US.
However a spokesperson for the CDMA Development Group, to which the five companies belong, confirmed CDMA One would not be compatible with a European standard recently agreed.
Despite the incompatibility, the spokesperson pointed to the International Telecommunications Union's Family of Systems vision which would ensure networks interoperate under one umbrella.
