- Abbreviation of code-division multiple access. A spread spectrum digital cellular telephone technology in which multiple simultaneous users share the available channels. Instead of slicing the available bandwidth into separate channels differentiated by frequency, this technology uses the entire radio-frequency spectrum available and distinguishes users by assigning a unique digital code. CDMA offers various benefits, such as increased call capacity, enhanced privacy, and improved coverage characteristics.
