3G wireless technologies are becoming widely available, and their capabilities are undergoing swift evolution. The success of wide area wireless depends on an effective ecosystem of chip vendors, device vendors, operators, middleware providers and applications developers. PCCA meetings provide an ideal opportunity for technical representatives from a broad cross section of the mobile-computing industry to constructively participate in understanding key attributes of new wireless technologies, and to identify and help resolve issues facing the industry.

This PCCA meeting will address the capabilities, deployment, workings, devices and applications of CDMA2000 1xEV-DO Rev A. It will also examine future evolution of the technology through Rev B and Rev C, referred to as Ultra Mobile Broadband. The meeting will provide information, and access to technical experts not otherwise readily available through other industry forums.  The workshop will provide hands-on opportunities to work with Rev A technology.

The PCCA is inviting companies to present on this topic or on closely related areas. We are also open to feedback on what specific items to examine in this meeting.




February 27, 2007. Workshop. 12:00 PM to 5:00 PM.

The workshop will allow attendees to work with EV-DO Rev A PC cards to test for compatibility with their systems, whether hardware or software. QUALCOMM will supply PC Card modems operating on the Sprint network that participants will be able to check out for one hour periods. Test results will belong to the individual participants.
