Chairman, UMTS Forum


about the umts forum

Who are we?

  • An international, cross-sector industry body comprising operators, manufacturers, regulators, application developers, research organisations and IT industry players.

Our mission…

  • To promote a common vision of the development of 3G/UMTS and of its evolutions, and to ensure its worldwide commercial success.

Our publications

  • Since 1997, more than 40 reports on Spectrum & Regulation, 3G/UMTS vision, Customer behaviour, Market evolution & Forecasts, Technical studies & Implementation. Recent issues: Strategic Considerations for IMS – the 3G Evolution, Coverage Extension Bands for UMTS/IMT-2000 in the bands between 470-600 MHz, Magic Mobile Future 2010-2020…

About The UMTS Forum

2005 the year of mass market commercialisation for 3g

2005: The year of mass-market commercialisation for 3G

Some big numbers…

more than 50 million 3G subscribers worldwide (W-CDMA + CDMA2000 1xEV-DO) by Mid-Sept ‘05

more than 100 W-CDMA networks launched by Nov ‘05

3g umts global update

3G/UMTS global update

  • 100+ W-CDMA networks in commercial service in over 40 countries with many others in trial/pre-launch (October 2005)
  • Over 35 million 3G/UMTS subscribers (October 2005) out of a global total exceeding 50 million 3G customers (WCDMA + EV-DO)
  • 145+ 3G/UMTS licenses awarded in 45 countries

3g umts terminals

3G/UMTS Terminals

  • Over 220 3G/UMTS terminals and PC cards (Nov.05) commercially available or announced by a growing range of European, Asian and US manufacturers
  • Latest models compare with 2G handsets in terms of battery life, weight and size
a clear roadmap

A clear roadmap

As a complete mobile system standardised in 3GPP, 3G/UMTS offers a clearly-defined evolutionary path to higher data speeds, greater capacity and increased functionality to support new services

  • 3GPP Release 6 enhances earlier iterations to bring customers a step closer to the complete "3G experience”
  • High Speed Packet Access (HSPA) maximises operators’ available spectrum resources, offering high symmetrical data rates and reduced latency, while reducing delivery costs per bit
  • Phase II of the IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) ensures smooth interworking with other core networks, and enables operators to offer multimedia services built on Internet applications, services and protocols
  • Interworking with WLAN gives users the greatest flexibility in choosing how they communicate
  • plus MBMS, enablers for Push to talk over Cellular (PoC) and more…

3g umts service evolution roadmap

3G/UMTS service evolution roadmap

  • Future enhancements to UMTS (3GPP Release 5 & 6):
  • HSDPA (High speed downlink packet access) increases downlink speeds to 14.4 Mbps, and 5.8 Mbps for HSUPA (uplink)
  • IP multimedia subsystem (IMS) provides advanced IP capabilities for mobile multimedia services
  • Multimedia Broadcast / Multicast Service (MBMS)
  • Interworking with other networks such as DAB and DVB will take advantage of content offerings that can be delivered efficiently to mobile devices

GSM GPRS Rel 99 Rel 4 Rel 5 Rel 6

New services and applications are already being introduced on today’s 2G and 2.5G networks, giving operators and customers an early taste of the capabilities of 3G/UMTS

hsdpa the next step in evolution of the 3gpp air interface

HSDPAThe next step in evolution of the 3GPP air interface

HSDPA = high speed mobile broadband, enabling a wide variety of high bandwidth multimedia services including:

- high quality streaming video,

- fast downloads of high resolution images and large files,

- interactive e-mails & gaming,

- telematics,…

  • Compared with WCDMA, HSDPA:
        • increases throughput (2→14.4 Mbps): total and average per user
        • reduces latency
        • increases data capacity up to 5x in dense urban environments (micro-cells)

  • Telenor
  • Telfort
  • TEM
  • TIM
  • NTT DoCoMo
  • Vodafone KK
  • KTF
  • SKT
  • Telstra
  • Cingular AT&T

Announcements suggest HSDPA launches in 2006… plus HSUPA launches from 2007

mobile broadcast technologies adding value to the 3g umts user experience
Mobile broadcast technologies Adding value to the 3G/UMTS user experience
  • 3G/UMTS launches are stimulating greater demand for live TV and video downloads
  • ‘One to many’ broadcast transmission of multimedia content promises to deliver an enhanced 3G/UMTS user experience, with more efficient use of finite spectrum resources
  • ‘MBMS’ enabling Broadcast and Multicast modes is specified in 3GPP
  • In parallel with this, trials based on the DVB-H standard (proposed by ETSI and based on existing terrestrial broadcasting standards) are already underway
  • First DVB-H handsets expected within next 12 months
