Overview: The Third Generation Partnership Project 2 (3GPP2) is a collaborative third generation (3G) telecommunications standards-setting project comprising North American and Asian interests developing global specifications for ANSI/TIA/EIA-41 "Cellular Radiotelecommunication Intersystem Operations network evolution to 3G, and global specifications for the radio transmission technologies (RTTs) supported by ANSI/TIA/EIA-41. 3GPP2 was born out of the International Telecommunication Union's (ITU) International Mobile Telecommunications "IMT-2000" initiative, covering high speed, broadband, and Internet Protocol (IP)-based mobile systems featuring network-to-network interconnection, feature/service transparency, global roaming and seamless services independent of location. IMT-2000 is intended to bring high-quality mobile multimedia telecommunications to a worldwide mass market by achieving the goals of increasing the speed and ease of wireless communications, responding to the problems faced by the increased demand to pass data via telecommunications, and providing "anytime, anywhere" services.
