Chapter 2. IS-95 PCS & Cellular CDMA

Around the world, a number of different Code Division Multiple Access air interfaces are being deployed and proposed for mobile and portable wireless systems, Wireless Local Loop, satellite systems, and wireless Local Area Networks (LANs). However, by far the most widely deployed CDMA technology is the IS-95 based cellular and PCS CDMA technology deployed in North and South America, Asia, and elsewhere. This technology, which includes the IS-95A standard for 800 MHz cellular systems [EIA93], and the J-STD-008 standard for 1900 MHz PCS systems [Ans95b], will be collectively referred to as IS-95. As of late 1998, there are more than 12 million wireless subscribers using IS-95 or one of its variants.
