Welcome to Cell Data News!

By Glenn Fleishman

Welcome to WNN’s latest blog on cellular data: In an industry where the number three comes after two but before two and a half, there’s room to explain what’s going on.

Cellular data networking got its start in the U.S. with 19.2 kilobit-per-second CDPD (cellular digital packet data), the first of many band-aids that the industry pasted over the cracks in its voice-oriented cellular networks to provide data services.

These days, carriers worldwide are trying to deploy third-generation (3G) cell data networks that can carry potentially megabits per second per user. The U.S. has lagged the rest of the world, pushing out 2.5G data networks that handle above-dial-up speeds to allow a transition while much needed spectrum is cobbled together for the 3G deployments currently underway and planned for the next year or two.

In this blog, we’ll cover the worldwide industry with some focus on the U.S., and especially try to decipher the array of new technology in use or coming down the pipeline for deployment, like HSDPA and 4G. We’ll bring you the same kind of industry coverage, product review, and first-hand reporting that we’ve specialized in at Wi-Fi Networking News for the last four years. We welcome your feedback, and sign up to receive news via email at the upper left of any page.
