The Code Division Multiple Access 450 has all the characteristics of a technology on the make: a plausible pitch, some seriously keen vendors, market momentum and, of course, its own international association. Most of the deployments to date have been in Eastern Europe and Russia. The technology's biggest plus is coverage, a radius of up to 50 kilometers, meaning many fewer base stations and much lower capital and deployment cost. Additionally, European Union regulator CEPT has also given the go-ahead for 450 as a trunked radio standard.
