UTStarcom’s Personal Communications division took the wraps off of a new line of cell phones that can operate on the new Advanced Wireless Spectrum (AWS). The line comprises three models: the CDM7126, CDM7176 and the CDM8076.
AWS is a wireless telecommunications band that uses microwave frequencies in two segments - from 1710 MHz to 1755 MHz, and from 2110 MHz to 2155 MHz. It allows wireless providers additional bandwidth to offer their customers faster and more-reliable network coverage, including video, data and messaging services for their mobile devices, according to UTStarcom.
"We are one of the first manufacturers to offer AWS devices to carriers,” said Philip Christopher, president of UTStarcom Personal Communications. “We believe that the AWS band will play an important part in the future growth of our carrier partners in developing faster and more-reliable wireless networks."
