Hi, Has any one deployed and used Java Midlet on GSM Network (CSD 9.6 Kbps)? If so please explain the effect. I have come across cases where it is used in GPRS networks. But I have searched the net for understanding the implications of using Java Midlets on GSM CSD 9.6 Kbps networks. All products - Nokia , Siemens etc.. claim that their Java Phons can be used even in GSM CSD 900/1800 networks. But no practical examples and experience could be found. I am working for a GSM Operator and I am trying to find out the possibility. Of course, there could be some pit falls on the connectivity response times to support OTA midlet downloads in GSM CSD (9.6 Kbps - Not a always-on connectivity like GPRS but the data call has to be dialled out). Please let me know any of your experiences in above subject... Regards Muthu
I always use GPRS nowadays, but I have used CSD (and HSCSD) for MIDlets without problems. For instance, the Nokia 3410 is a MIDP phone that doesn't support GPRS, so with it you always use CSD. We regularly downloaded MIDlets to our 3410 using CSD, and ran networked MIDlets on it successfully.
