What does GGSN Stand for?
Gateway GPRS Support Node. (GPRS stands for General Packet Radio Services) . A GPRS Core Network provides mobility management, session management and transport for Internet Protocol packet
services in GSM and WCDMA networks. The core network also provides support for other additional functions such as billing and lawful interception. It was also proposed, at one stage, to support packet radio services in the US D-AMPS TDMA system, however, in practice, most of these networks are being converted to GSM so this option is becoming largely irrelevant. Like GSM in general, GPRS is an
open standards driven system and the standardization body is the 3GPP.
