IMT-2000

(International Mobile Telecommunications-2000) ITU standards for third-generation (3G) wireless phones. Formerly known as the Future Public Land Mobile Telecommunications System (FPLMTS), IMT-2000 supports the WCDMA and CDMA2000 technologies through 3G Partnership Projects: 3GPP covers WCDMA, and 3GPP2 handles CDMA2000. See IMT-Advanced, cellular generations, 3GPP and UMTS.

Focused on harmonizing the cdma2000 and W-CDMA IMT-2000 proposals, operators met most recently in Toronto, May 25-26, and re-emphasized that CDMA technology is the IMT-2000 solution, as representatives from over 30 worldwide operators committed to a single CDMA standard for 3G.
The cdma2000 standard, derived from the commercial cdmaOne digital wireless systems based on Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA), is a set of industry-developed specifications for meeting the IMT-2000 performance criteria of the International Telecommunications Union (ITU), particularly for high-speed wireless data transmission.
