Uncovering the 3GPP and 3GPP2
The 3GPP and 3GPP2 are unquestionably the most influential organizations in the global cellular communications industry. At times, these groups act as benevolent dictators (when enforcing standards that ease roaming and equipment interoperability), while at others, they are more like democratic despots (when turgid procedures and quasi-democratic processes act as a drag on innovation). This report examines the work plans of the real decision-makers -- in detail.
