Qualcomm is the company that developed the third generation code division multiple access (also known as 3G CDMA) communication technology. Qualcomm is a leader in the advancement of 3G and CDMA technology and is based in California. Qualcomm is a provider of wireless telecommunications and technology and was a pioneer in the development of these technologies.
The 3G CDMA standard is the result of the combination of two distinct technologies. The term “3G” refers to the third generation of technology used in mobile telecommunications. It is the primary technology that enables voice and video calling over the internet to take place wirelessly. The speed of data transmission over mobile networks is commonly associated with the term “3G.” Newer versions of the technology, such as 4G and 5G, have been made possible as a result of advances in related technology.
CDMA is an access method that is used in telecommunication technologies. CDMA is an abbreviation that stands for code division multiple access. CDMA enables a higher and quicker capacity for voice and data telecommunications by allowing multiple transmitters to simultaneously process and transmit information over one communication medium. This enables CDMA to allow for higher capacities for both voice and data telecommunications. The development of this technology has led to the creation of WCDMA, which stands for wide-band code division multiple access communication. WCDMA makes use of a broader spectrum of frequencies than the original CDMA technology did, but it is still based on that technology.
Qualcomm was the first company in the mobile transmission industry to successfully develop and deploy a workable 3G CDMA product. Qualcomm is known as the “world’s most valuable brand” in the mobile transmission industry. They started by implementing technology that could be used with mobile devices such as cell phones and other mobile technology, which paved the way for additional mobile connectivity products and services that were provided through the Internet.
