Lucent Technologies is to install a Wideband Code Division Multiple Access (WDCMA) wireless system for Japan?s largest wireless service provider, NTT Docomo.
The deal follows hot on the heel of Motorola?s recent win to build a CDMA network for Japan?s two leading cellular service provider.
CDMA is a digital wireless technology offering call clarity and provides greater network capacity and service reliability than existing wireless networks. It is considered as the next generation to GSM and is beginning to be taken up widely around Asia where wireless and cellular technologies are enjoying booming growth.
The network will enable NTT Docomo to offer multimedia services and high speed voice and data transmission.
Lucent is also working on developing CDMA networks in Indonesia, Thailand, the Philippines and Korea.
Separately, Lucent said it will celebrate its first anniversary as an independent company from AT&T by doubling analysts? predictions for its second quarter. It said it will post a net income of up to $65 million compared to a loss of $103 million.
