UMTS frequency bands

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
The UMTS frequency bands are radio frequencies used by third generation (3G) wireless
Universal Mobile Telecommunications System networks. They were allocated by delegate to the
World Administrative Radio Conference (WARC-92) held in Málaga-Torremolinos, Spain
between February 3, 1992 and March 3, 1992.[1] Resolution 212 (Rev.WRC-97), adopted at the
World Radiocommunication Conference held in Geneva, Switzerland in 1997, endorsed the
bands specifically for the International Mobile Telecommunications-2000 (IMT-2000)
specification by referring to S5.388, which states "The bands 1,885-2,025 MHz and 2,110-2,200
MHz are intended for use, on a worldwide basis, by administrations wishing to implement
International Mobile Telecommunications 2000 (IMT-2000). Such use does not preclude the use
of these bands by other services to which they are allocated. The bands should be made available
for IMT-2000 in accordance with Resolution 212 (Rev. WRC-97)." To accommodate the reality
that these initially defined bands were already in use in various regions of the world, the initial
allocation has been amended multiple times to include other radio frequency bands.[2][3]

In general, the various UMTS bands are deployed as follows:


Band I (W-CDMA 2100) in Europe, India, Africa, Israel (Cellcom, Orange, Pelephone[4])
Asia, Australia (metropolitan Optus and Vodafone), New Zealand (ITU Region 1,
2degrees Vodafone NZ), Thailand (TOT (Thailand)), and Brazil (part of ITU Region 2)
Band II (W-CDMA 1900) in North America and South America (ITU Region 2).
Band IV (W-CDMA 1700 or Advanced Wireless Services) in the United States (TMobile USA), Canada (WIND Mobile, Mobilicity, Vidéotron) and Chile (VTR Movil,
Nextel Chile)
