The paper presents a new cellular architecture for radio access, CDPA that can be applied to present and future cellular systems, independently of the cell size. It poses as an appealing alternative to systems based on classical bandwidth subdivision methods, namely TDMA, FDMA or CDMA. In these systems, parallelism of communications is achieved by subdividing the band width "A priori" among cells. In CDPA no bandwidth sub division is operated. All cells and terminals use a single frequency channel and transmit packets on a slotted channel. Parallel transmission in different cells is achieved through the "Capture" capability.
