Mobile broadband is changing the way the world communicates. The UMTS Forum helps all players in this dynamic value chain understand and profit from the opportunities of 3G/UMTS networks and their Long Term Evolution (LTE). The UMTS Forum participates actively in the work of the ITU, EC, ETSI, 3GPP and CEPT plus other technical and commercial organisations. It also contributes to the timely licensing and deployment of mobile broadband globally through regular dialogue with regulators and responses to public consultations. The UMTS Forum supports the interests of its membership with a range of studies, reports and other outputs. Membership of the UMTS Forum draws together everyone with an interest in mobile broadband, including operators, regulators and the manufacturers of network infrastructure and terminal equipment.
