(3rd Generation Partnership Project) A cooperation of international standards bodies for the development of high-speed cellular services. Established in 1998, 3GPP has been involved with all the cellular standards including GSM, CDMA and LTE, starting with 3G through 4G and beyond. See cellular generations.

3GPP - GSM (UMTS Umbrella)
For GSM carriers, the first 3G specification was WCDMA, which was based on the CDMA air interface and a departure from GSM's TDMA. WCDMA was followed by HSPA. For more information, visit www.3gpp.org. See WCDMA, HSPA, GSM, CDMA and TDMA.

3GPP2 - CDMA (IMT-2000 Umbrella)
For CDMA2000 carriers, the first 3G specification was 1X, followed by EV-DO. 3GPP2 supports QCELP speech in addition to 3GPP formats. For more information, visit www.3gpp2.org. See CDMA, CDMA2000, QCELP and IMT-2000.

Convergence into LTE
With support from 3GPP and 3GPP2, GSM and CDMA carriers worldwide are converging their networks into 4G/LTE (Long Term Evolution). See LTE and LTE Advanced.
