The CDMA Development Group (CDG) announced today that they have selected “Ultra Mobile Broadband” as the brand name to describe the advanced technologies and services that will be supported by the CDMA2000 1xEV-DO Revision C (Rev. C) standard.

The new standard is expected to be published early in the second quarter of 2007 and become commercially available on a global basis in early 2009.

“With the ability to support peak download speeds as high as 280 Mbps in a mobile environment, Ultra Mobile Broadband (UMB) represents a major breakthrough in the delivery of next generation mobile broadband services,” the group said.

“The technology will deliver packets of data at speeds that are orders of magnitude higher than what is currently available, and will do so within the entire cell edge coverage area.”
