UMTS: stands for Universal Mobile Telecommunications System - and is one of the third-generation (3G) mobile phone technologies.
To differentiate UMTS from competing network technologies, UMTS is sometimes marketed as 3GSM, emphasizing the combination of the 3G nature of the technology and the GSM standard which it was designed to succeed.
