The Ministry of Information Industry of China has just published a total of 130 detailed rules on the three main 3G technology area of CDMA2000, WCDMA and TD-SCDMA.
These rules are regarded as the recommended standards for China's 3G industry, and are not legal statutes. The 130 rules, which were fully approved on May 25, 2007, have been issued to each affiliate of MII at various levels, communications management bureaus and China's six major basic telecom operators.
They have been formally put in force, since the date of issuance and are said to be a roadmap for China's 3G development.
On May 16, MII confirmed that it would accept WCDMA and CDMA2000 as China's 3G industry standards. Coupled with TD-SCDMA, which was made an industry standard in January 2006, China now has three 3G standards.
