What is GSM?


GSM, otherwise known as global system for mobile communications, is an open, digital cellular technology used for transmitting mobile voice and data services.

GSM was created by the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) in the early 1990s, when second generation telecommunication technologies started to be deployed in Finland.

In 2014, it became the global standard for mobile communications with 90% of the global market share.
