Third-generation (3G): to be deployed in 2002 and offer higher data rates (realistically around 100 Kbps to 300 Kbps), sufficient for more data-intensive and multimedia applications; core of a 3G network likely to be IP-based. Fourth-generation (4G): still an ill-defined concept; likely to involve efficiency improvements and ubiquitous use of IP for voice and data.
