The universal mobile telecommunication system (UMTS) all-internet protocol (IP) architecture was proposed to integrate IP and wireless technologies. This architecture evolved from the second-generation global system for mobile communications (GSM), general packet radio services (GPRS), UMTS release 1999, and UMTS release 2000. UMTS gurantees end-to-end quality-of-service (QoS) and radio spectrum efficiency. The common IP protocols impact roaming and the communications between terminals and networks in order to support end-end QoS and achieve maximum interoperability.
