 Understanding 3G Telecom Evolution Through Cladistics
Recognizing that 3G has many roots in earlier technologies, one useful way to understand 3G telecom evolution is by applying the concepts of "cladistics." In an article by Guy Simpson, Vice President Applications Development, Catapult Communications, it suggests using cladistics to describe 3G standard development path.
Figure 2 is a cladistics diagram that shows the evolution of 3G UMTS technology -- the primitive characteristic is GSM, a common base of technology that all members of the group support.
This book discusses 3G services from the view of what is needed for the service to provide value to the user, what is the value proposition for the user, how will money be made out of delivering the service, and discussions on how revenue sharing propositions might work to benefit content providers and network operators.

 CDMA Group Publishes 3G Evolution White Paper
The CDMA Development Group (CDG) and Signals Research Group have jointly published a white paper on CDMA2000 evolution to 3G and beyond and the benefits it offers to operators in regards to capacity, data throughput, enhanced functionality and revenue opportunities.
The paper, entitled "The 3G Evolution - Taking CDMA2000 into the Next Decade," was prepared by the Signals Research Group on behalf of the CDG, and is based on extensive interviews with operators, equipment suppliers and other industry players.
The primary difference with CDMA2000 is that the evolution from 2G to 3G, including EV-DO and its future revisions, is relatively seamless due to backward and forward compatibility, "in-band" migration, and an aggressive reuse of existing hardware without the need to deploy an entirely new radio access network.

 HDR Offers Service Providers the Data speeds for Evolution to 3G   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
And in the case of high data rate (HDR), Qualcomm is the Picasso of proficiency, the Van Gogh of velocity.
But we had issues with making sure it fit nicely with the 1X evolution path, in terms of upgradeability to our network." Rather than installing all new radio infrastructure, which was what was originally envisioned with HDR, Sprint PCS needed a more cost-effective upgrade, he said.
Ed Chao, Lucent senior manager for 3G CDMA data, said this is exactly how the company upgrades its Flexent base station, which Sprint currently is using for 1X and will continue to use for 1XEV.
