Hanoi, Vietnam (PRWEB) June 14, 2006
The CDMA450 Workshop hosted by EVN Telecom and supported by the MPT was attended by approximately 200 participants from over 20 countries. The event organized by the International 450 Association (IA450) and the CDMA Development Group (CDG) once again proved to be an informative forum for regulators, operators and vendors to exchange information about recent deployments and ongoing trials.
Hanoi, Vietnam was chosen as the location for this event due to EVN Telecom’s recent commercial launch and success with CDMA450 technology and due to Vietnam’s rapidly growing mobile telecommunications industry.
The IA450 Plenary #5 immediately followed the workshop. Three new applicants were approved for membership raising the total membership to 32.
