ABSTRACT
The article presents information on third-generation (3G) and fourth-generation (4G) wireless data networks. It discusses the shift in the function and definitions of 4 and 4G-network technologies and services and the boundaries between generations. The proliferation of air-interface standards for shorter-range wireless protocols, such as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth is mentioned. The International Telecommunications Union (ITU) has defined 3G wireless communications under the IMT-2000 standard. ITU has also named five qualifying air interfaces, including wideband-code-division multiple access (W-CDMA), CDMA2000, TD-CDMA/TD-SCDMA, enhanced-data-rates-for-global evolution (EDGE), and digital-enhanced-cordless telecommunications (DECT).
