Nokia today announced that its VMR-WB technology has been chosen as the new wideband speech codec standard for CDMA2000. The technology was selected by the 3GPP2 from a field of five competing proposals. The new codec offers superior speech quality at data rates comparable to current narrowband speech codecs, resulting in highly intelligible and natural speech, superior to today's wireless and even wireline networks. The VMR-WB standard is also interoperable with the AMR-WB standard selected by the 3GPP for use in GSM/WCDMA networks.
