Highlights the coverage achieved by different configurations. A system with activeelements at each subscriber location, apart from several Base Station sites, requiresa sophisticated and user-friendly Network Management System (NMS) for monitoring and maintenance. This report gives a glimpse of the future, ascorDECT evolves to a fullfledged3G+ system with advanced features such as fastdownload from the Internet.Finally, there is an Appendix that gives a brief overview of the DECTstandard. The main aspects of DECT are dealt with here, in particular MCTDM Amedium-access and Dynamic Channel Selection. A short list of key DECT physical parameters is also included.
CorDECT WIRELESS ACCESS SYSTEM
The corDECT Wireless Access System (WAS) is designed to providesimultaneous circuit switched voice and medium-rate Internet connectivity athomes and offices. The Access System model, which corDECT emulates, is shownin Figure 1.
Conceptual Access System
In this conceptual model, there is a Subscriber Unit (SU)located at the subscriber premises. The SU has a standard two-wire interface toconnect to a telephone, fax machine, PCO (Public Call Office), speakerphone,cordless phone, or modem. It also provides direct (without a modem) Internetconnectivity to a standard PC, using either a serial port (RS-232 or USB) or Ethernet. The Access System allows simultaneous telephone and Internetconnectivity. The SU’s are connected to an Access Centre(AC) using any
