Vanu, Inc. and Mid-Tex Cellular Launch Cellular Industry's First System to Simultaneously Operate CDMA and GSM on a Single Platform
Traditionally, cellular operators use single standard, high-cost infrastructure that requires dedicated hardware and duplicates operating expense for each wireless standard that is deployed. With the Vanu Anywave solution, Mid-Tex Cellular built one RAN to accommodate both GSM and CDMA, and the same platform will enable the addition of 3G technologies via remote software downloads. The download of CDMA has allowed Mid-Tex to evaluate the standard's performance, including roaming revenue potential, without a large capital outlay.
