WCDMA (Wideband Code Division Multiple Access)
is the radio access scheme used for 3rd generation cellular systems, which support wideband services like high-speed Internet access, video and image transmission as same quality as the fixed networks.
The WCDMA standard was created by 3GPP (Third Generation Partnership Project) to ensure interoperability between different 3G networks.
