Table 12: Global 10-Year Perspective for WCDMA
The MSM6255 chipset is a highly integrated solution for WCDMA
and EGPRS networks worldwide and is optimized to deliver in-demand mainstream multimedia applications, including streaming audio and video, high-quality snapshots and location-based services.
One of these major networks currently offers a service that works on a dual-mode handset, combining WCDMA
in Japan and GSM internationally.
All solutions in the MSM6xxx chipset family are based on radioOne zero intermediate frequency (ZIF) architecture, providing reduced bill-of-materials (BOM) costs and ultimately more cost-effective solutions for WCDMA
(UMTS) wireless devices.
The report also shows that Huawei is on its way to becoming the number three largest player in the WCDMA

Base Station allows for an easy technology evolution to multiradio networks, as its modules can also be fitted inside existing Nokia UltraSite EDGE Base Station cabinets.
is a 3G wireless technology that allows users to send and receive mobile voice, data, image and video communications at speeds up to 2 megabytes per second (Mbps) over a broad range of frequencies.
For instance: replacing six discrete modules and 18 SMDs by two integrated front-end modules in a single-band WCDMA
application takes board area down from typically 140mm2 to 85mm2, creating space for new phone features, reducing inventory costs and speeding time-to-market.
It is significant that these connections were carried out in a commercial GSM/EDGE network that has been upgraded to support handovers from WCDMA
carriers are moving forward with their plans to build and deploy WCDMA
networks across the nation, and we are ready to provide them with the equipment and services, as well as intelligent functionalities for GSM/EDGE and WCDMA
interworking, they need to do so quickly, efficiently, and cost-effectively," said Louison.
