Power limited system
While people talking, random noise band playing occurs

Fading would be reduced with wide frequency spectrum
Need to have separate multipath signals with different delays by “chip” unit.


Receiving or transmission is allowed for only one user in a given slot
All slots are assigned cyclically
The transmission is non-continuous
It is essential to use digital data and modulation
Data rate overhead is between 20% – 30%
Overhead tradeoffs are size of data payload and latency
Multiple users are shared with single carrier frequency
Handoff is made simpler by using non-continuous transmission
All slots are assigned on demand
Due to reduced inter user interference, the power control is less stringent
