Application Note: Forward & Reverse Link Measurements With The Tektronix WCA200A Series Wireless Communication Analyzers

Source: Tektronix
The Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) specification provides an important pathway to third-generation (3G) global wireless communication systems. The current cdma2000 evolved from the cdmaOne standard under the guidance of the Third Generation Partnership Project 2 (3GPP2). Originating in North America, cdma2000 technology was quickly adopted around the globe and became the first third-generation technology to be deployed. This application note addresses only the cdma2000 1xEV-DO (EVolution-Data Optimized) phase and discusses the use of the Tektronix WCA200A Series Wireless Communication Analyzer to make forward and reverse link measurements.
