Lucent has made its equipment and software using the third-generation (3G) Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA2000) standard commercially available for the first time.

In a statement Lucent said it was already installing and testing the equipment with customers worldwide who are now in the process of upgrading their current-generation - or CDMAOne - mobile networks.

Lucent already has a number of agreements in place with large vendors for upgrading networks to 3G. In March, the company announced a three-year, $5bn (£3.4bn) deal with the telecom company Verizon to supply 3G mobile telephony equipment. Lucent is helping Verizon to upgrade its existing voice network to the CDMA2000 standard.

In June, Lucent signed a $1bn three-year deal with Sprint to build up its 3G network with a variety of hardware and software products.
