(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 3G, 4G and 5G. See cellular generations, 3G, LTE and 5G.

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.

While there were clearly two "camps" (3GPP and 3GPP2) in 3G developments (SAUGSTRUP & HENTEN, 2006)--plus the WiMAX oriented solutions and the Chinese solution--there is one common trail with respect to 5G, based on LTE developments.
A 2 tier 3GPP2 cell layout was chosen and a free space propagation model was considered.
3GPP/WLAN interworking between cellular technologies and WLANs, IEEE 802.11u interworking of IEEE 802.11 WLANs with external networks, and IEEE 802.21 media-independent handoff for heterogeneous access technologies such as IEEE 802.3, IEEE 802.11, IEEE 802.16, 3GPP cellular networks, and 3GPP2 cellular networks are certainly the specifications and standards to look for in the convergence of networks today.
Openwave plays a leading role in major industry standards bodies including OMA, 3GPP and 3GPP2.
Third Generation (3G), refers to the next generation of wireless systems: digital with high-speed data being standardized by the 3rd Generation Partnership Project for W-CDMA (3GPP) and the 3rd Generation Partnership Project for cdma2000 (3GPP2).
Furthermore, CDMA2000 1xEV-DO has been registered to ITU as one of third-generation Mobile Communication Systems (IMT-2000) after completing its specification in 3GPP2.

In addition to spectrum analysis, the MS272xC has functionality such as a high-accuracy power meter, interference analyzer, channel scanner, GPS receiver, and 3GPP, 3GPP2 or IEEE 802.16 signal analyzers.
This is a fully integrated multi-band, multi-standard single-chip RF transceiver for 3GPP (WCDMA/HSPA and LTE), 3GPP2 (CDMA2000) and WiMAX applications, which can be digitally configured to operate in 16 user-selectable bandwidths up to 28MHz.
The IMS is originally designed by 3GPP (3rd Generation Partnership Project) and later updated by 3GPP, 3GPP2 and TISPAN (Telecoms & Internet converged Services & Protocols for Advanced Networks) [7].
