NZ participates in live global multi-party linkup

February 25, 2000


New Zealand participates in live global 3G multi-party link-up

Ericsson New Zealand is part of a global demonstration at IT/telecomms exhibition, CeBIT 2000 - the world's first live multi-party link-up of 3G systems across seven countries in four world regions.

In a move that brings WCDMA (Wideband Code Division Multiple Access) technology another step closer to commercial reality, Ericsson is staging the first live public demonstration featuring a multi-party link-up between its WCDMA pilot systems in New Zealand, Canada, Germany, Japan, Spain, Sweden and the UK.

New Zealand’s link with CeBIT is unique as it is the only participant operating from a mobile multi-media van. This means that show visitors in Germany are speaking to and seeing local Ericsson representatives as they travel Auckland’s streets.

WCDMA (Wideband Code Division Multiple Access) is one of the third generation radio interface technologies that is optimized for wideband radio access to support high-speed multimedia services such as video conferencing and Internet, as well as voice calls.

3G services are combining high-speed mobile access with IP (Internet Protocol) based services, resulting in better performing wireless communications delivered with greater cost-effectiveness and significantly
richer content.

Visitors to the Ericsson stand at the Hanover show (Germany) are able to try out a selection of wireless services such as multi- party video conferencing with countries like New Zealand, listening to streaming music, sending wireless postcards to family and friends, and wireless Internet surfing to favourite sites.

Ericsson recently won the first-ever agreement for a commercial end-to-end 3G system. The Finnish 2G Ltd. has chosen Ericsson as the main supplier of a nationwide mobile network integrating GSM and 3G.

Around the world, Ericsson's customers, the operators, are already trying
WCDMA pilot systems and potential applications. In New Zealand, a multi-media, mobile demonstration unit is currently showing local businesses the changing face of telecommunications.

ABOUT WCDMA

3G services are combining high-speed mobile access with IP (Internet
Protocol) based services, resulting in better performing wireless
communications delivered with greater cost-effectiveness and significantly
richer content.

WCDMA (Wideband Code Division Multiple Access) is one of the third
generation radio interface technologies that is optimized for wideband
radio access to support high-speed multimedia services such as video
conferencing and Internet, as well as voice calls.

WCDMA allows the wireless bandwidth to be tailored efficiently to the
needs of each individual call, whether it is voice, data or multimedia. It
can handle both packet and circuit switched services. Multiple calls of
different types can be simultaneously made.

Ericsson is the world-leading supplier of mobile infrastructure, supplying
all current major digital mobile technologies: GSM, PDC, TDMA and cdmaOne.

With its complete portfolio of 3G wireless systems, Ericsson is ideally positioned to support any operator anywhere to migrate to 3G, whatever the technology choice, WCDMA, cdma2000 or EDGE.
