Wireless Communication History

A Dramatic, Novel, Short and Rich Inventional and Industrial History
Rrelatively brief (half a century-analog) with the US as a Industrial Pioneer (mostly analog), The first citizen automobile radiotelephone (car phone) serviced in the US in 1946 (Detroit Police). But it was in Japan that the practical mobile system in VHF band became fully operative in 1948 and immediately Detroit as Japanese claim and in Iran, full duplex mobile system with transceiver in 1952 by ITRC . From 1948 to 1980 systems such as Paging, public cordless (80s) were kept coming into the governmental market services (police, ambulances, etc.) but only in North America, Japan and Britain.

Wireless Communication History

Developments in land mobile communications progressed slowly following these initial introductions, but with the advent of the information age in the late 1980s, new services started being offered, resulting in a phenomenal increase in the demand and proliferation of public communication systems, which continues to the present. Specifically, the portable telephone was introduced as radiotelephone in 1989, and the service started in 1993 for digital portable and mobile radiotelephone systems. This is followed in 1995 with the introduction of the Personal HandyPhone System (PHS).

Wireless Communication Frequency Bands

Historically, land mobile communication systems have used frequencies in relatively low bands, but with the increase in the number of wireless stations (terminals), frequency assignments have expanded from VHF into the UHF region. First frequency allocation given to governmental (public services) as bellow:
60 MHz band 150 MHz band 250 MHz band 400 MHz band 800 MHz band 1.5GHz band 1.9-3GHz 3.6-12Gz Public agency use Public agency use, radio systems for general business amateur radio Pager, cordless telephone Public agency use, radio systems for general business, low power radio and amateur radio, etc. Land mobile radiotelephones, digital land mobile radiotelephones and terminals Digital portable land mobile radiotelephones, etc. PHS, radio LAN, UMTS and IMT-2000 UWB, RFID, WSN, Bluetooth, etc.

Mobile Systems Technical History

The Evolution of Digital Mobile Radio Systems (1994) A brief evolution description of many years system architectures and supporting technologies is presented starting from the birth of GSM (Global System for Mobile coms.) 2nd generation digital mobile communication system. GSM- The most widespread (mostly digital) mobile system in the world today providing the basis to cover the introduction of UMTS (Universal Mobile Telecommunication Services) in relation to its Core Network (CN) and radio architectures.

Mobile Systems Technical History


The original scope of 3GPP was to produce Technical Specifications and Technical Reports for a 3G Mobile System based on evolved GSM core networks and the radio access technologies that they support (i.e., Universal Terrestrial Radio Access (UTRA) both Frequency Division Duplex (FDD) and Time Division Duplex (TDD) modes). The scope was subsequently amended to include the maintenance and development of the Global System for Mobile communication (GSM) Technical Specifications and Technical Reports including evolved radio access technologies (e.g. General Packet Radio Service (GPRS) and Enhanced Data rates for GSM Evolution (EDGE)).

Mobile Systems Technical History

The Growth of Mobile Communications A simultaneous growth with Internet revolution not only incorporated industrial environments but also, grew within domestic applications. Q1. What is the Internet has to do with Mobile system and/or UMTS?

A summary of digital data transmission over wireless channels:

1- 14.4Kb/s allows GSM data calls with a rate of 14.4Kb/s per time slot, resulting in a 50% higher data throughput compared to the current maximum speed of 9.6Kb/s. 2- High Speed Circuit Switched Data (HSCSD) aggregates symmetrically or asymmetrically several circuit channels, e.g. 28.8Kb/s for two time slots (2+2) or 43.2Kb/s for three time slots (3+1). 3- General Packet Radio Service (GPRS) enables GSM with Internet access at high spectrum efficiency by sharing time slots between different users. It affords data rates of over 100Kb/s to a single user while offering direct IP connectivity.

Mobile Systems Technical History

A summary of digital data transmission over wireless channels:
4- Enhanced Data Rate for GSM Evolution (EDGE) modifies the radio link modulation scheme from GMSK to 8QPSK. Thereby increasing by three times the GSM throughput using the same bandwidth. EDGE in combination with GPRS (E-GPRS) will deliver single user data rates of over 300Kb/s. 5- UMTS as 3rd generation wireless technology utilizes a Wideband CDMA or TD/CDMA transceiver. Starting with channel bandwidths of 5MHz it will offer data rates up to 2Mb/s. UMTS uses different spectrum and new radio network configurations while using the GSM core infrastructure.

Advanced Wireless Communication System History

Although the circuit switched enhancements such as HSCSD increases transmission rates, it is packet switched enhancements, which will meet the challenges or demands posed on current wireless networks. The GPRS and UMTS with EDGE as an intermediate solution will provide the platform to support integrated services of voice and data including multimedia. While GPRS, IMT and UMTS meet the demands for Internet (IP) features and higher bandwidth in mobile networks, another evolution step is taking place in the network infrastructure. This is the convergence of single networks into a multi-purpose backbone network. An impact on the implementation of UMTS specially IMT radio access technologies.

Carrier Frequencies and TDMA Frames (GSM900)

A channel in the uplink and the downlink are combined to form a duplex pair. The two channels are separated by 45MHz. Typically a MN will produce 0.6W of power. The uplink frame happens after the downlink frame. Q2;- Draw the two FDMA channel and TDMA time slots for GSM1800. Guass what are Freq. Sep. and MN.

Slot Transmission and Duplexing

l l


Each 200 kHz FDMA channel has 8 TDMA time slot channels. Uplink slots are transmitted with a delay of three time slots referred to the downlink. Handset uses the same duplex number in the uplink as in the downlink say Channel 93 time slot 3.
Each TDMA slot lasts 15/26 ms = 576.9 s. If used, a slot can contain a data burst which lasts 156.25 bit. l Since in the handset Tx and Rx operations are at different times the handset needs no duplexer and can therefore be made more cheaply.

UMTS Services Aspects:

UMTS is the realization of a new generation of mobile communication technology for a world in which personal communications services should allow person-to-person calling, independent of location, the terminal used, the means of transmission (wired or wireless) and the choice of technology. Important services can be namely: Service Management Charging and Billing Network management Quality Of Service (QoS) Security

Concluding Remarks By looking at the bearer capabilities from previous three slides one can conclude:
Evolution towards higher rates will initially apply mainly to indoor rates. In this environment convergence will also have higher impact. In addition, UTRA will not only prevent seamless HO between different operators or access networks, but also support HO between 2G and 3G system, e.g. GSM and UMTS. UTRA will support key technologies, like ATM, IP, BISDN, as well as GSM, when it comes down to core network (CN) transport. This will constitute the trend of 2G CN towards integrated circuit switched and packet switched services.

UMTS Fields:Capacity Increasing Antennas

Enhancing Technologies:
By increasing the number of BS antennas we can resolve the uplink limitation of WCDMA. This approach does not allow a single step solution because many factors intervene before completing process. UTRA will support key technologies, like ATM, IP, BISDN, as well as GSM, when it comes down to core network (CN) transport. This will constitute the trend of 2G CN towards integrated circuit switched and packet switched services.
