What is 3GPP?

The Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) is a collaboration between groups of telecommunications associations to make a third generation (3G) mobile phone system specification within the scope of the International Mobile Telecommunications-2000 (IMT-2000) project of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU).

3GPP was formed in December 1998. The initial scope of 3GPP was to produce a globally applicable third generation mobile phone system specification based on the GSM family of standards. The specification was to be created through the harmonization of existing DOCOMO, ETSI, T1, TIA, and 3GPP specifications.
