PDC (Personal Digital Cellular)

Personal Digital Cellular (PDC) was a second-generation digital cellular standard used in Japan. It operated in between 800MHz and 1,500MHz frequency bands and had nearly 80 million users at its peak. Third-generation (3G) technologies such as W-CDMA then became the digital cellular standard, replacing PDC in the mid-2000s. Many PDC operators have since terminated their services.

What Small and Midsize Businesses Need to Know About PDC (Personal Digital Cellular)

SMBs today would benefit more from 3G than 2G technologies because 3G mobile networks allow for faster internet browsing and data downloading. This enables SMBs to complete day-to-day tasks such as order management, sales, marketing, billing, and communicating with customers.
