Motorola has announced that it has begun deployment of its CDMA2000 1X solution on a 2 GHz network for KDDI, a carrier for 3G cellular phone services in Japan. The new packet-based 2 GHz network will allow the carrier to leverage additional bandwidth while offering the opportunity to provide more advanced feature enhancements to deliver new services to its customers.

“This commercial deployment in Japan of CDMA2000 1X in the 2 GHz band underlines our commitment and leadership in developing CDMA2000 1X technology,” said Simon Leung, senior vice president, Motorola Inc. and general manager for its infrastructure business in the Asia Pacific region. “We look forward to deepening our 15 year relationship with KDDI through well-designed wireless solutions that will help them capture additional revenue and meet emerging customer needs.”
