|TD and CDMA2000 Connects|
The visiting Korean President Lee Myung-bak visited on May 28, 2008 a China-Korea
TD-SCDMA project at China Datang Corporation. He dialed the first video call via an
international line connecting both CDMA 1X EVDO and TD-SCDMA, making TD-SCDMA
connect with other 3G systems.
According to a briefing, Datang will strengthen its TD-SCDMA operation with SK, with a
further expanded TD-SCDM built by the latter. Chinese State Development and Reform
Commission signed on August 2006 with SK an accord to jointly develop the TD system. SK
built China's first overseas TD-SCDMA experimental network in Seoul in April 2007. In
addition, both sides have decided to launch a range of value added TD-SCDMA operations
during the period of the Beijing Olympic Game.
