UMA is the commercial name for the global 3GPP Generic Access Network (GAN) standard for fixed-mobile convergence (FMC). UMA enables secure, scalable access to mobile voice, data and IMS services over broadband IP access networks. By deploying UMA, mobile operators can deliver a number of compelling FMC services. The most well-known applications of UMA include dual-mode Wi-Fi/cellular phones. Leading operators around the world have embraced UMA as the foundation for their FMC strategies, including France Telecom/Orange, T-Mobile (USA), Rogers Wireless, TeliaSonera and Cincinnati Bell.
UMA Today publishes the UMA Today Magazine hosts Webinars, sends news alerts to a subscription list and is involved in other industry activity to promote UMA technology. In addition, UMA Today co-sponsored the UMA Innovation Awards with Orange/France Telecom in 2008 and 2009.
