Anyway, thank you for your efforts. It's a shame to see people disappear but apparently there is a whole world "out there" away from SI. Some weird 3D universe apparently. Meanwhile, look at the difference between high speed CDMA these days [and now LTE supersonic speeds] compared with back in the IS-95 days: <

Mr. Benn,

Thank you for your observations. It pleases me to come across people who recognize and support the technical capabilities of IS-95 CDMA. I am generally aware of CDMA's data capabilities such as being able to offer data transmission at ISDN speeds. In fact, Sprint PCS has indicated it will offer ISDN-rate data transmission sometime in the future (for more information, see the Inter@ctive Week article "Sprint Indicates Future Direction" at ). Another example is NextWave Telecom's subsidiary TELE*code which plans to offer wireless data services to such organizations as utilities for the purposes of meter reading. In addition to these capabilities of IS-95 CDMA, I believe the potentially most important is the possibility of IS-95 CDMA being able to offer data transmission at 384 kbps which would allow for video of some quality. Qualcomm will not discuss its efforts in this area so the only information I have acquired that discusses this is an article by the publication America's Network located at and a brief discussion of this area by the CDMA Development Group located at If CDMA at 384 kbps is achievable, it would, I believe, open a whole new dimension to its possible applications.
