UMTS stands for Universal Mobile Telecommunications System. UMTS is also known as third-generation, or 3G. Third-generation systems are designed to include such traditional phone tasks as calls, voice mail, and paging, but also new technology tasks such as Internet access, video, and SMS, or text messaging. UMTS went live as a network for the first time in Japan in 2001. Austria had its own network two years later. A handful of other European countries joined the UMTS bandwagon in the next two years, with South Africa and a few other African countries soon following suit. The U.S. has employed UMTS networks in several large cities, and the number is steadily growing.
