Posted: 11-Sep-2004 [Source: The Korea Herald]

[UMTS Forum Chairman, Pierre Bienaime, in addressing a panel at the recent ITU Asia said he expects WCDMA to eventually take 90 percent of the world's 3G market.]

By Kim Tong-hyung, Busan -- "After a slower-than-expected roll out, wideband CDMA, or WCDMA, is back on track to prevail as the world's third-generation mobile telephony standard, according to the chairman of the platform's largest advocate group.

"The number of WCDMA users worldwide is reaching over 8 million, equivalent to the number of CDMA2000 1x EV-DO users that is about 8 to 9 million. We expect the number of WCDMA customers to increase to 12 million to 15 million by the end of the year," Jean-Pierre Bienaime, chairman of the Universal Mobile Telecommunications System Forum, told the Korea Herald on Thursday.

The Forum is an international body of 130 mobile equipment and operator companies promoting the global uptake of WCDMA services."
