Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA)

Code division multiple access (CDMA) is a spread-spectrum technology standard that assigns a pseudo-noise code to all speech and data bits, sends a scrambled transmission of the encoded speech over the air and reassembles the speech in its original format. By assigning a unique correlating code to each transmitter, several simultaneous conversations can share the same frequency allocation.
