CDMA Development Group-led Open Market Handset Trials Reach Successful Conclusion in India
COSTA MESA, Calif., May 12, 2008 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) -- The CDMA Development Group (CDG) today announced the successful conclusion of its Open Market Handset (OMH) proof of concept trials in cooperation with Reliance Communications and TATA Indicom in India. Open Market Handsets enable both operator-specific configuration information and subscriber-specific provisioning information to be moved from the handset's non-volatile (NV) memory into a Removable User Identity Module (R-UIM) or smartcard. By doing so, the handset becomes a generic device that can be sold anywhere on the "open market" and used in multiple operator networks. The OMH program is part of the CDG's overall Global Handset Requirements for CDMA (GHRC) initiative, which specifies the common set of requirements and standards for approving CDMA devices in an open-device and open-application environment.
