China Backs TD-SCDMA as 3G Standard

The Chinese government is throwing its support to TD-SCDMA (Time Division Synchronous Code Division Multiple Access) as a national 3G standard, according to Xinhua news agency. The report came from the 2005 TD-SCDMA International Summit being held this week in Beijing.

China's Ministry of Information Industry (MII) is currently conducting a test of 3G technologies that is expected to end in June. China is expected to award 3G licenses later this year.
