Cdma standard l.jpg
CDMA Standard

  • IS-95 規格 :

    資料傳輸率 9.6 kb/s

    Chip Rate = 1.2288 Mchips/s

    頻道寬度 1.25MHz

  • W-CDMA = Wideband CDMA



    Chip Rate = 4.096 Mchips/s 。

  • CDMA開發組織(CDG,CDMA Development Group)



    Chip Rate = 3.6864 Mchips/s ,正是IS-95 Chip Rate 1.2288

  • 通訊品質,CDMA比GSM好。

  • 塞車、斷訊問題,CDMA比GSM來得少。

  • CDMA的每一個基地台容量大約是GSM的三倍。

  • 基地台涵蓋範圍,CDMA比GSM來得大。

  • 加值功能,相差不多。

The wi fi technology l.jpg
The Wi-Fi Technology China, for a penetration rate of 23%

  • Wi-Fi, or Wireless Fidelity, is freedom. It's powerful. Wi-Fi networks use radio technologies called IEEE 802.11b or 802.11a to provide secure, reliable, fast wireless connectivity. A Wi-Fi network can be used to connect computers to each other, to the Internet, and to wired networks (which use IEEE 802.3 or Ethernet). Wi-Fi networks operate in the unlicensed 2.4 and 5 GHz radio bands, with an 11 Mbps (802.11b) or 54 Mbps (802.11a) data rate or with products that contain both bands (dual band), so they can provide real-world performance similar to the basic 10BaseT wired Ethernet networks used in many offices.

Datamonitor PLC, a market research firm in London, predicts that the number of Wi-Fi hot spots worldwide will grow from 31,000 this year to 135,000 by 2007.

Security issues l.jpg
Security Issues China, for a penetration rate of 23%

  • Virus detection and protection

  • Smart card security solutions

    • Voice communication can be intercepted by hackers

    • One solution is an embedded biometric add-on

  • Back-end security solutions—public key infrastructure (PKI) and M-CERT (mobile certification)

  • Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) - a security protocol, specified in the IEEE Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) standard, 802.11b, that is designed to provide a wireless local area network (WLAN) with a level of security and privacy comparable to what is usually expected of a wired LAN

Radio frequency identification rfid l.jpg
Radio frequency identification (RFID) China, for a penetration rate of 23%

  • RFID first appeared in tracking and access applications during the 1980s. These wireless AIDC systems (Automatic Identification and Data Capture ) allow for non-contact reading and are effective in manufacturing and other hostile environments where bar code labels could not survive. RFID has established itself in a wide range of markets including livestock identification and automated vehicle identification (AVI) systems because of its ability to track moving objects. A basic RFID system consist of three components:

    • An antenna or coil

    • A transceiver (with decoder)

    • transponder (RF tag) electronically programmed with unique information

  • Often the antenna is packaged with the transceiver and decoder to become areader(a.k.a. interrogator), which can be configured either as a handheld or a fixed-mount device. The reader emits radio waves in ranges of anywhere from one inch to 100 feet or more.

Slide67 l.jpg

  • RFID tags come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. China, for a penetration rate of 23%

  • RFID tags are categorized as either active or passive. Active RFID tags are powered by an internal battery and are typically read/write, i.e., tag data can be rewritten and/or modified.

  • Passive RFID tags operate without a separate external power source and obtain operating power generated from the reader. Read-only tags are typically passive and are programmed with a unique set of data (usually 32 to 128 bits) that cannot be modified.

  • The significant advantage of all types of RFID systems is the noncontact, non-line-of-sight nature of the technology. Tags can be read through a variety of substances such as snow, fog, ice, paint, crusted grime, and other visually and environmentally challenging conditions, where barcodes or other optically read technologies would be useless.
