3G With Chinese Characteristics
Posted: 24-Jul-2001 [Source: Business 2.0]

[Chinese officials reportedly favoring a 3G technology TD-SCDMA invented by a Chinese researcher and scheduled to begin year-long trials in October.]

By David Orenstein -- "In the United States, technologists often like to think of their work as being above politics -- except for the occasional antitrust lawsuit. But in China, things work a bit differently. Just last week, government officials proudly announced China's first homegrown microprocessor and celebrated the role it plays in "protecting China's information security." The government also recently invested in the publisher of Red Flag Linux, boosting the prospects of operating system competition with the foreign capitalist devils at Microsoft.

"With those examples in mind, it should come as little surprise that Chinese officials reportedly favor a third-generation (3G) wireless technology called time division-synchronous code division multiple access (TD-SCDMA). Yearlong trials of the technology, which competes with wideband CDMA (W-CDMA) and CDMA 2000, are slated to begin in October.
