Packets and data
During a single time slot is your phone transmitting, andthe contents of the time slot is called a packet. Packets aremade of bits, and bits are made of magic.A packet can be 4 different things:
random access burst - shorter than the normal burst.
synchronization burst - same length as the normal burst but a different structure
normal burst - carries speech or data information. lastsapproximately 0.577 ms and has a length of 156.25 bits
frequency correction burst - same length as the normal burst but a different structure
