Looking at the technicalities, we have seen several interesting developments recently:
- Standard: The ITU approves the standard as 3G.
- Handover: Datang (a TD-SCDMA vendor) challenges the ITU decision, pointing to the lack of handover capabilities. Interestingly, Alcatel-Lucent and Onemax just demonstrated seamless 16e handover in the Dominican Republic, a 'world's first'.
- Interference: Reports out of Australia over satellite interference. Interesting to see how this develops.
