Overview: The Third Generation Partnership Project 2 (3GPP2) is a collaborative third generation (3G) telecommunications standards-setting project representing North American and Asian interests in developing global specifications for the evolution of the ANSI/TIA/EIA-41 Cellular Radiotelecommunication Intersystem Operations network to 3G, and 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, which covered high speed, broadband, and Internet Protocol (IP)-based mobile systems with 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: 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.
