eAccess begins high speed multimedia W-CDMA trials

11 Feb 2005

Japanese ADSL service provider eAccess is collaborating with US-based technology vendor Lucent to build a W-CDMA trial network to enable the development of high speed mobile data, voice and multimedia services. The planned trial will incorporate Lucent’s IP multimedia subsystem (IMS) and high speed downlink packet access (HSDPA) solutions.

Following news of forthcoming deregulation in the Japanese market eAccess recently established a mobile subsidiary, called eMobile, in anticipation of new mobile licences being made available.
