(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.

Similarly, this method can be applied to the case where an MN moves to 3GPP and 3GPP2 networks, as depicted in Fig.
Since we considered mobile WiMAX, 3GPP, and 3GPP2 standards, these needed to be adapted to our proposed scheme, because we included more functionality in the standard L2 signaling messages.

3GPP2 has been engaged in highly successful Market Representation Partnerships with the CDMA Development Group (CDG) and the Femto Forum, and the new specifications reflect many of the building blocks for femtozone services that have been pioneered in the Femto Forum, including Local IP Access (LIPA) and Remote IP Access (RIPA).
The 3GPP2 specifications provide a complete security architecture that allows CDMA2000 femtocell networks to support large numbers of femtocells via standard commercial IPsec/IKEv2-based security gateways.
This announcement represents culmination of the first major phase of 3GPP2's extensive standardization project for femtocell devices - work that has been heavily supported by CDMA2000 system operators, many of whom have already announced commercial femtocell deployments or plans for commercial offerings in the near future," said Cheryl Blum, 3GPP2 Steering Committee Chair.
We are extremely pleased to see the substantial progress that 3GPP2 has demonstrated by providing the comprehensive foundation for multi-vendor integration of femtocells and core network elements for CDMA2000 system operators - and for end users of CDMA2000 1X and EVDO mobile devices," said Simon Saunders, Chairman of the Femto Forum.
BRISTOL, England -- ProVision Communications has announced the launch of ProPhecy[TM] 4G, the world's first advanced network planning and optimising tool suite designed for use with both 3GPP-LTE and the recently issued 3GPP2 Ultra Mobile Broadband (UMB) air interface specification.
Siemens PCS-5000 not only supports the PCMM standard for cable networks, but it is also an access-independent policy server that supports standards from different standardization organizations (3GPP, 3GPP2, CableLabs, ETSI/TISPAN).
This customer-driven portfolio was also influenced by Bridgewater's active participation in 3GPP2, WiMAX Forum, and OMA as well as in consideration of standards from 3GPP, ETSI TISPAN, and CableLabs.
