WiDEN (Wideband Integrated Digital Enhanced Network) is an upgraded version of iDEN (Integrated Digital Enhanced Network), a wireless communications technology originally developed by Motorola in 1993 and deployed by Nextel in 1996 to combine the capabilities of digital cellular telephone, two-way radio, alphanumeric pager and data/fax modem in a single network.
