English translation:Fixstart facility/subroutine for UMTS (??)
Explanation:
There are no AltaVista hits for +fixstarter +UMTS.

An AltaVista search for fixstarter alone and related terms gave the following results:

(1) Fixstarter is a fairly common German term in competitive racing (from skiing to motorsports) that could be used metaphorically here, however unlikely.
(2) Fixstart (in various capitalizations) occurs in software contexts -- e.g. Java, OS2 programming --, sometimes in conjunction with FixPak.

You might wish to re-post the question with more context, e.g. the entire sentence or passage verbatim, to help your helpers save time, provide more clues and give you a better answer.

With the largest share of the market worldwide, no other standard has gained such acceptance as Global System for Mobile Communication, or GSM. Siemens has driven the development of GSM from its very beginnings, and now pioneers its evolution to the 3rd generation of mobile communication - UMTS.
UMTS is a part of the International Telecommunications Union’s ’IMT-2000’ vision of a global family of ’third-generation’ (3G) mobile communications systems
UMTS will play a key role in creating the future mass market for high-quality wireless multimedia communications that will approach 2 billion users worldwide by the year 2010
