ABSTRACT
This report documents the work carried out by me on the basis of the training obtained from Bharat Sanchar Nigam limited (BSNL) GANGTOK, SIKKIM. This report basically focuses on the implementation of wireless network and systems in use today and new technologies and developments to be coming in near future. The cellular revolution is apparent in the growth of the mobile phones. Recently, it had been the telephones. The invention allowed two parties to communicate by sending each other alphanumeric characters encoded in an analog signal. The newer generation devices with access to the internet built-in digital cameras add to this momentum. Recently, a great deal of attention has been focused on satellite communications, wireless networks and cellular technology. Communication satellites were first launched in the 1960s. Those first satellites could only handle 240 voice circuits. Today, satellites carry about one-third of the voice traffic and all of the television signals between countries. The most recent topic prevailing in today¶s scenario is the development of the robust coding of video content for 4G applications. An investigation, comparison, and evaluation of methods how to send short video messages (video postcards) using a 3G and 4G systems, using a mobile terminal such as a cell phone will be carried out.

Electrical Divisions came into existence in the erstwhile P&T department in 1963 to cater to the need for undertaking infrastructure electrical and mechanical works in house rather than sourcing it from CPWD as per earlier practice. studies are now being carried out to develop the fourth generation of mobile system. which must be made possible in order to meet the requirements for faster speeds and more diverse usage formats. the Electrical unit has become part of BSNL. Future telecommunications infrastructures will be heavily based on the Internet Protocol and would be packet switched. Accordingly. .Introduction Modern Telecommunications network plays a key role in today's world and are required to be continuously operated even in the most adverse conditions. but its leading position will be weakened in future networks. The two most important trends in today¶s telecommunications industry are the significant developments of cellular networks and the rapid rise of the use of the Internet. BSNL has met the demands of the rising population and had introduced technologies beyond the limits of the costumers. the Electrical unit remained with DOT and with the Corporatization. Voice will maintain to be an important application. The Engineering Electrical Services in the buildings housing modern telecommunications network must perform to an exceptional degree of reliability so as to ensure that there are no breakdowns in the telecommunications system. An explosive growth is expected in mobile communications over the next decade with higher speeds and larger capacities than provided by third-generation communications mobile systems. With bifurcation of P&T. The rise of mobility and data-oriented applications are fundamentally changing the environment of the telecommunications network.

the system has been adapted for data communication such as Telex. Fax and dial-up Internet communication. The signaling equipment consists of a bell. Although originally designed for voice communication. beeper. Competition has caused prices to drop and calls across India are one of the cheapest in the world.Telephony System Telephone system: The Mobile telecommunications system in India is the second largest in the world and it was thrown open to private players in the 1990s. Government and several private players run local and long distance telephone services. Basic principles 1896 Telephone from SWEDEN A traditional landline telephone system. The country is divided into multiple zones. also known as "plain old telephone service" (POTS). light or other device to alert the user to incoming calls. commonly handles both signaling and audio information on the same twisted pair of insulated wires: the telephone line. . called circles (roughly along state boundaries).

filtering. thus operating a button switch or "switch hook". A twisted pair line is preferred as it is more effective at rejecting electromagnetic interference (EMI) and crosstalk than an untwisted pair. the exchange sends an intermittent ringing signal (about 90 volts AC in North America and UK and 60 volts in Germany) to alert the called party to an incoming call. (Most exchanges are still equipped to handle pulse dialing. The exchange detects this current. the calling party then presses the number buttons in a sequence corresponding to the telephone number of the called party. the exchange sends a busy . A calling party wishing to speak to another party will pick up the telephone's handset. and other components which are connected when the phone is "off hook".and number buttons or a rotary dial to enter a telephone number for outgoing calls. sending electrical pulses corresponding to the telephone number to the exchange. On a modern push-button telephone. which puts the telephone into an active (off hook) state by connecting the transmitter (microphone). and amplification.) Provided the called party's line is not already active or "busy". that remains connected to the phone line whenever the phone is "on hook". attaches a digit receiver circuit to the line. If the called party's line is active. This circuitry has a low resistance (less than 300 ohms) which causes DC current from the telephone exchange to flow through the line. The buttons are connected to a tone generator circuit that produces DTMF tones which arrive at a circuit at the exchange. The telephone consists of an alerting device. A rotary dial telephone employs pulse dialing. a receiver (speaker) and other circuits for dialing. receiver (speaker) and related audio components to the line. and sends a dial tone to indicate readiness. usually a ringer. These include a transmitter (microphone).

they actuate a double-circuit switch hook which simultaneously disconnects the alerting device and connects the audio circuitry to the line. Calls to parties beyond the local exchange are carried over "trunk" lines which establish connections between exchanges. When a party initiates a call to this line. When a landline phone is inactive or "on hook". The exchange circuitry turns off the ring signal. if the called party's line is active but has call waiting installed. signaling the exchange to disconnect the call. a device which blocks the flow of DC current but permits AC current to flow. DC current ceases to flow in that line. in turn.signal to the calling party. This. This constitutes a mechanism whereby the phone draws no current when it is on hook. However. and both phones are now active and connected through the exchange. The parties may now converse as long as both phones remain off hook. placing the handset back on the cradle or hook. confirming that the called phone is now active. and the ringing signal is transmitted. the exchange sends an intermittent audible tone to the called party to indicate an incoming call. When a party "hangs up". Satellite . In modern telephone networks. draws DC current through the line. the circuitry at the telephone exchange detects the absence of DC current flow and therefore "knows" that the phone is on hook with only the alerting device electrically connected to the line. The phone's ringer is connected to the line through a capacitor. but exchange circuitry can send an AC voltage down the line to activate the ringer for an incoming call. fiber-optic cable and digital technology are often employed in such connections. When the called party picks up the handset.

The competition has forced the landline services to become more efficient. even in high density urban areas. Though the number of internet users is . such as Touchtel and Tata Teleservices. Dialing System: On landlines. Currently Government is working to integrate the whole country in one telecom circle. Landlines are facing stiff competition from mobile telephones. For international calls. intra circle calls are considered local calls while inter circle are considered long distance calls. The landline network quality has improved and landline connections are now usually available on demand. The country code for India is 91. you would dial 011-XXXX XXXX). Internet Users: Number of Internet users in India is the 4th largest in the world. For calling Delhi.2 Call Rates Slashed: Communication rates in India fell sharply after the year 2000 when infrastructure improvements and entry of many major players made Indian Telecom a highly competitive sector. you dial the area code prefixed with a zero (.technology may be used for communication over very long distances Landlines: Landline service in India is primarily run by BSNL/MTNL and Reliance Infocomm though there are several other private players too. For long distance calls.

A number of technologies currently exist to provide users with high-speed digital wireless connectivity.high. Cellular subscribers pay extra on top of their basic bills for such features as instant messaging. Whether it is a television. With the advent of the Internet. Fourthgeneration wireless needs to be standardized throughout the United States due to its enticing advantages to both users and providers. the penetration level is still lower than most countries across the globe. These two standards provide very high speed network connections over short distances. The goal is the same: long-range. cellular providers seek to increase speed on their long-range wireless networks. Bluetooth and 802. high-speed wireless connectivity.

India primarily follows the GSM mobile system. In September 2004. Currently there are an estimated 201. Most modern cellular phones are based on one of two transmission technologies: time-division multiple access (TDMA) or code-division multiple access (CDMA). The dominant players are Airtel. There are many smaller players. Idea cellular and BSNL/MTNL. International roaming agreements exist between most operators and many foreign carriers.29 million mobile phone users in India compared to 39. Reliance Infocomm. Vodafone. Recent operators also operate in the 1800 MHz band. Circuit-switching Circuit switching has been the dominant technology for both voice and data communications.These two technologies are collectively referred to as second-generation.Cellular Technology The mobile service has seen phenomenal growth since 2000. with operations in only a few states. the number of mobile phone connections has crossed fixed-line connections. Communication via circuit . in the 900 MHz band.73 million fixed line subscribers.

a link from A to E is a dedicated line. The most common example of circuit switching is the telephone network. Communication via circuit switching involves three phases: Circuit Establishment: Before any signal can be transmitted. a channel is dedicated to the connection. usually by the action of one or more stations. For example. . On each physical link. an end to end circuit must be established. Information Transfer: Information can now be transmitted from A to E. station A sends a request t node 4 requesting a connection to station E. Generally. That path is a connected sequence of links between the network nodes. Typically. Signals may be transmitted in both directions. Circuit disconnect: After the signal transmission has been completed. the connection is terminated.itching implies that there is a dedicated communication path between two stations. the connection is full duplex.

A packet switching network can carry out data rte conversion. When traffic becomes heavy on a circuit switching network. .Circuit Switching Packet switching In comparison to circuit switching packet switching has greater efficiency. some calls are blocked. since each connects to its node at its proper data rate. On a packet switching network packets are still accepted. Two stations o different data rates can exchange packets.

BTS System .

it is generally and common associated with mobile communication technologies like GSM and CDMA. . and manages operational states of each TRX. a BTS forms part of the base station subsystem (BSS) developments for system management.for maintenance of the network. as well as software handling and alarm collection. The BCF is implemented as a discrete unit or even incorporated in a TRX in compact base stations. antennas may also be considered as components of BTS in general sense as they facilitate the functioning of BTS. In this regard. Typically a BTS will have several transceivers (TRXs) which allow it to serve several different frequencies and different sectors of the cell (in the case of base stations).BTS in Mobile Communication A GSM network is made up of three subsystems: y The Network and Switching Subsystem (NSS) ± comprising an MSC and associated registers. The BCF provides an operations and maintenance (O&M) connection to the network management system (NMS). It may also have equipment for encrypting and decrypting communications. spectrum filtering tools (band pass filters) etc. y The Base Station subsystem (BSS) ± comprising a BSC and several BTS. The basic structure and functions of the BTS remains the same regardless of the wireless technologies. Though the term BTS can be applicable to any of the wireless communication standards. y The Operations support system (OSS) . A BTS is controlled by a parent base station controller via the base station control function (BCF).

On-the-spot configurations. etc. Frequency hopping. Also does sending and reception of signals to/from higher network entities (like the base station controller in mobile telephony) Power amplifier (PA): Amplifies the signal from DRX for transmission through antenna. Control function: Control and manages the various units of BTS including any software. Duplexer: This is used for sending and receiving signals to/from antenna and also for sending and receiving signals through the same antenna ports (cables to antenna). status changes. may be integrated with DRX. It allows reducing the number of antenna used. signal DSP. etc. Baseband receiver unit (BBxx). software upgrades.General Architecture Transceiver (TRX): Basically does transmission and reception of signals. Alarm extension system: Collects working status alarms of various units in the BTS and extends them to operations and maintenance (O&M) monitoring stations.

every device gets a timeslot in every frame. each device indicates how much data it has to send. or Time Division Multiple Access. One optimization that makes TDMA much more efficient is the addition of a registration period at the beginning of the frame. one device is allowed to utilize the entire bandwidth of the spectrum. Each device gets a single time slot in a procession of devices on the network. Devices with lots of pending data can have extra time with which to send it.TDMA TDMA. During this period. In practice. and every other device is in the quiescent state. This is called ETDMA (Extended TDMA) . one each for n devices on the network. During that particular time slot. This has side effect of wasting bandwidth and capacity on devices that have nothing to send. is a technique for dividing the time domain up into sub channels for use by multiple devices. This makes the frame setup simpler because there is no time wasted on setting up the order of transmission. There are n timeslots in each frame.

and can increase the efficiency of TDMA to ten times the capacity of the original analog cellular phone network. Analog systems. where the rate of speech. allows every device in a cell to transmit over the entire bandwidth at all times. This is accomplished by taking each bit of the signal and multiplying it by all bits in the unique code for the phone. one data bit is transformed into a sequence of bits of the same length as the code for the mobile phone. Each mobile device has a unique and orthogonal code that is used to encode and recover the signal .´ That means. Once encoded. GENERATIONS OF WIRELESS TECHNOLOGIES First Generation Wireless Technology The first generation of wireless mobile communications was based on analog signaling. implemented in North America. for this type of data. the volume of speech. This type of data is seen often in voice transmission. and the amount of background noise are constantly varying. or Code Division Multiple Access. CDMA CDMA. The benefit of using TDMA with this optimization for network access comes when data is ³burst. Thus. while systems implemented in Europe and the rest of . at an arbitrary time. Thus. and encodes the data with the unique code for that phone. it is not possible to predict the rate or amount of pending data from a particular host. were known as Analog Mobile Phone Systems (AMPS).The mobile phone digitizes the voice data as it is received. very little capacity is wasted by excessive allocation. the data is modulated for transmission over the bandwidth allocated for that transmission.

the world was typically identified as variation of Total Access Communication Systems (TACS). first implemented in 1991. not data. FDMA is used to divide the available 25MHz of bandwidth into 124carrier frequencies of 200 kHz each. Each frequency is then divided using a TDMA scheme into eight time slots.8 GHz bands throughout the world with the exception of the Americas where they operate in the 1. Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) technology was developed in North America. The use of separate timeslots for transmission and reception simplifies the electronics in the mobile units. several other TDMAbased systems have been deployed worldwide and serve an estimated 89 million people worldwide. Analog systems were primarily based on circuit-switched technology and designed for voice. GSM systems operate in the 900MH2z and 1. using TDMA-based technology. The most popular 2G wireless technology is known as Global Systems for Mobile Communications (GSM).9 GHz band. emerged in Japan. CDMA . An estimated 248 million users now operate over GSM systems. GSM systems. Since then. Today. The first GSM systems used a 25MHz frequency spectrum in the 900MHz band. called Personal Digital Communications (PDC). Second Generation Wireless Technology The second generation (2G) of the wireless mobile network was based on low-band digital data signaling. While GSM technology was developed in Europe. GSM technology is a combination of Frequency Division Multiple Access (FDMA) and Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA). In addition to GSM. are now operating in about 140 countries and territories around the world. a similar technology.

These 2G+ systems are based on the following technologies: High Speed Circuit-Switched Data (HSCSD). GSM. General Packet Radio Service (GPRS) and Enhanced Data Rates for Global Evolution (EDGE) technologies. As a result. PDC and other TDMA-based mobile system providers and carriers have developed 2G+ technology that is packet-based and increases the data communication speeds to as high as 384kbps. However. HSCSD is one step towards 3G wideband . the effective data rate of 2G circuit-switched wireless systems is relatively slow. the virtual explosion of Internet usage has had a tremendous impact on the demand for advanced wireless data communication services. too slow for today's Internet. Second Generation (2G+) Wireless Networks As stated in a previous section.uses spread spectrum technology to break up speech into small. CDMA systems have been implemented worldwide in about 30 countries and serve an estimated 44 million subscribers. digitized segments and encodes them to identify each call.

GPRS technology is packet-based and designed to work in parallel with the 2G GSM.4 kbps data coding and by aggregating 4 radio channels timeslots of 14. GPRS is an intermediate step that is designed to allow the GSM world to implement a full range of Internet services without waiting for the deployment of full-scale 3G wireless systems.

SGSN and GGSN interface with the Home Location Register (HLR) to retrieve the mobile user's profiles to facilitate call completion. The BSS consists of Base Transceiver Stations and Base Station Controllers. In ECSD. GPRS uses a multiple of the 1 to 8 radio channel timeslots in the 200 kHz frequency band allocated for a carrier frequency to enable data speeds of up to 115kbps. whereas the enhancement of GPRS is called EGPRS. The Base Transceiver Station (BTS) receives and transmits over the air interfaces (CDMA.g. but the data rate per timeslot will triple.25 network.

The Serving GPRS Support Nodes (SGSN) and Gateway GPRS Support Nodes (GGSN) make up the PLMN. ftp and HTTP-based Web services.GPRS user profiles in the Location Register databases. The enhancement of HSCSD is called ECSD. and Mobile Switching Centers (MSC) for circuit-switched network access and databases. The data is packetized and transported over Public Land Mobile Networks (PLMN) using an IP backbone so that mobile users can access services on the Internet. such as SMTP/POP-based e-mail. e. GPRS networks consist of an IP-based Public Mobile Land Network (PLMN). Similarly. including all eight timeslots in the radio interface. EDGE technology is a standard that has been specified to enhance the throughput per timeslot for both HSCSD and GPRS. GGSN provides the connection to external Packet Data Network (PDN).

and then the data is switched to the external PDN through the GGSN or to another mobile subscriber.connectivity to the mobile handsets. Hence providing broadband services would be one of the major goals of the 4G Wireless-systems. However. The reverse process happens at the destination PLMN and the destination BSS. MSC accommodates the Visitor Location Register (VLR) to store the roaming subscriber information. The First generation wireless mobile communication systems were introduced in early eighties and second generations¶ systems in the late 1980s was intended primarily for transmission of voice. . the BSC routes the data calls to the SGSN. Base Station Controllers (BSC) route the data calls to the packet-switched PLMN over a Frame Relay (FR) link and the voice calls to the Mobile Switching Center (MSC). these systems offer wide area network (WAN) coverage of 384 kbps peak rate and limited coverage for 2 Mbps. and allow significant improvements over the 2G systems. MSC switches the voice calls to circuit-switched PLMN network such as PSTN and ISDN. The initial systems used analog frequency modulation where as the second as well as the subsequent mobile systems use digital communication techniques with time division multiplexing (TDM). The third generation wireless systems which are just getting introduced in the world markets offer considerably higher data rates. frequency division multiplexing (FDM) or the code division multiple access (CDMA). On the data side. The 3G Wireless systems were proposed to provide voice and paging services to provide interactive multimedia including teleconferencing and internet access and variety of other services.

GP2RS Tunnel Protocol (GTP): protocol that tunnels the protocol data units through the IP backbone by adding routing information.

One of the most important aspects of 3G wireless technologies is its ability to unify existing cellular standards. which includes 3G SGSNs and GGSNs. which is also part of the core network. It provides .Third Generation (3G) Wireless Networks 3G wireless technology represents the convergence of various 2G wireless telecommunications systems into a single global system that includes both terrestrial and satellite components. The Radio Access Network consists of new network elements. such as CDMA. known as Node B and Radio Network Controllers (RNCs). was proposed by the TIA and designed to comply with ANSI136. 3G wireless networks consist of a Radio Access Network (RAN) and a core network. into one umbrella. Charging for services and access is done through the Charging Gateway Function (CGF). and a circuitswitched domain. CDMA2000 and the Universal Wireless Communication (UWC136) interfaces. GSM. Universal Wireless Communications ± UWC-136. which provide the same functionality that they provide in a GPRS system. The following three interfaces modes accomplish this result: wideband CDMA. and TDMA. the North American TDMA standard. The second radio interface is CDMA2000 which is backward compatible with the second generation CDMA IS-95 standard predominantly used in US. which includes 3G MSC for switching of voice calls. The third radio interface. Node B is comparable to the Base Transceiver Station in 2G wireless networks. RNC replaces the Base Station Controller. The core network consists of a packet-switched domain. RAN functionality is independent from the core network functionality. also called IS-136HS.

The interconnection of the network elements in RAN and between RAN and core network is over Iub. Evolution of 3G technology Initial coverage NTT Docomo is deploying 3G wireless services in Japan in the third quarter of 2000. Iur and IU interfaces based on ATM as a layer 2 switching technology.the radio resource management. Voice is embedded into ATM from the edge of the network (Node B) and is transported over ATM out of the RNC. there is no similar mandate in North America and it is more likely that competition will drive the deployment of 3G wireless technology in that region. . Data services run from the terminal device over IP. These traffic types are switched independently to either 3G SGSN for data or 3G MSC for voice. The IU interface is based on ATM with voice traffic embedded on virtual circuits using AAL technology and IP-over-ATM for data traffic using AAL5 technology. which in turn uses ATM as a reliable transport with QoS. For example. In contrast. The IU interface is split into 2 parts: circuit switched and packet-switched. handover control and support for the connections to circuit-switched and packet-switched domains. Nextel Communications has announced that it will be deploying 3G wireless services in North America during the fourth quarter of 2000.

.The existence of legacy networks in most regions of the world highlights the challenge that communications equipment manufacturers face when implementing next generation wireless phone. Compatibility and interworking between the new 3G wireless systems and the old legacy networks must be achieved in order to ensure the acceptance of new 3G wireless phones by service providers and end-users.

5 to 5 GHz) are different for 3G wireless technology compared to 2G/2G+ wireless technology. Evolution of BSC to RNC requires support for new protocols such as PDCP. However. IP technology is used end-to-end for multimedia applications and ATM technology is used to provide reliable transport with QoS. . Finally. RNSAP and NBAP. Therefore. The core switches for nextgeneration of mobile networks will be based on packet-switched technology which is better suited for data and multimedia services. RANAP. this traditional technology is inefficient for the delivery of multimedia services. BTS' evolution into Node B may prove to be difficult and may represent significant capital expenditure on the part of network operators. global roaming requires compatibility to existing deployment and graceful fallback to an available level when requested services are not available in the region. Towards this end. The carrier frequency (5 MHz) and the bands (2.The existing core technology used in mobile networks is based on traditional circuit-switched technology for delivery of voice services. MSC evolution depends on the selection of a fixed network to carry the requested services. RRC. ATM protocols need to be incorporated to transport the services. the Operator Harmonization Group (OHG) is working closely with 3G Partnership Projects (3GPP and 3GPP2) to come up with global standards for 3G wireless protocols. The BSC may evolve into an RNC by using add-on cards or additional hardware that is co-located. then ATM protocols will have to be supported in 3G MSC along with interworking between ATM and existing PSTN/ISDN networks. If an ATM network is chosen.

More efficient algorithms at the Physical layer will reduce the Inter-channel Interference and Co-channel Interference. This concept is already beginning a revolution in wireless networking. The bandwidth would be much wider (100 M2Hz) and data would be transferred at much higher rates. The network security would be much tighter. The networks will be all IP networks based on IPv6. I do not think this is popular with the researching community. The Wi-Max lobby and the people who are working with the Wi-Max technology are trying to push WiMax as the 4G wireless technology. with instant access to the Internet from anywhere. Wireless Internet. etc.The most telling example is growth of the Internet over the last 10 years. Also QoS will improve. Higher bandwidths would be available which would make cheap data transfer possible. The antennas will be much smarter and improved access technologies like OFDM and MC-CDMA (Multi Carrier CDMA) will be used. Wireless networks provide a unique twist to this product: mobility. 4G Technology The 4G technology will be able to support Interactive services like Video Conferencing (with more than 2 sites simultaneously). All switches would be digital. At present there is no consensus among people to refer to this as the 4G wireless technology. Also the security features will be much better. The cost of the data transfer would be comparatively very less and global mobility would be possible. Wi-Max can deliver up to 70 Mbps over a 50Km . The entire network would be packet switched (IP based).

we have to wait and see who would be the winner.radius.16e or Mobile Wi-Max is being standardized. Since there is no consensus for the time being. Not only is data transfer slowly ² at the speed of analog modems ² but the bandwidth that is available is not allocated efficiently for data. 802. Data transfer tends to come in bursts rather than in the constant stream of voice data. The important thing to remember here is that all the researches for 4G technology are based around OFDM. This gives more credibility to the Wi-Max lobby who would like to term Wi-Max as a 4G technology. However. Wi-Max does not satisfy the criteria completely. with 4G wireless technology people would like to achieve up to 1Gbps (indoors). Also Wi-Max technology (802. wireless providers are already moving in the direction of expanding the bandwidth of their cellular networks.16d) does not support mobility very well. Cellular providers are continuing to upgrade their networks in order to meet this higher demand by switching to deferent protocols that allow for faster access speeds and more efficiently transfers. the current cellular network does not have the available bandwidth necessary to handle data services well. Almost all of the major cell phone networks already provide data services beyond that in standard cell phones. Wi-Max is also based on OFDM. To overcome the mobility problem. . Unfortunately. Problems with the Current System After all. or 3G. As mentioned above. the way in which the companies are developing their networks is problematic all are currently proceeding in directions with their technology improvements. These are collectively referred to as third generation. services.

but nobody else follows suit. Cellular providers will market additional services to its customers. it will not be enough to cover the higher costs of converting to 4G. There are two key differences. however. An outside agent ² the national government ² must standardize on 4G as the wireless standard for the United States. The cellular industry. because of all of the cellular manufacturers investing in it. which has (thus far) failed miserably. Therefore. however. that player will be at a significant disadvantage.The equipment and technology needed for 4G will be cheap. There are many small television broadcasters in rural areas whose cost of conversion would be as much as 15 years of revenue. if a player chooses the 4G strategy. the equipment will be more expensive than the second scenario. . A common concern is the similarity of this proposal to the forced introduction of HDTV 4G Wireless Systems 6 in the US. Even though converters will be able to sell more services to their customers. Some of the developers make the conversion to 4G because not all of the players have chosen 4G. The first is the nature of the service providers. between 4G and HDTV. No cellular provider has incentive to move to 4G unless all providers move to 4G.

this is no easy task. Our proposal is simply choosing a direction for their growth. But this still does not explain the security aspect. Unfortunately. wireless security is really a combination of wireless channel security (security of the radio transmission) and network security (security of the wired network through which the data flows). In a digital realm. otherwise. one first needs to understand what this elusive concept of security really means. Implementing good security requires that security be designed into every aspect of the system. Thus. continual network upgrades are part of their business plan. security almost always means ³information . engineers must design security into any new technology it cannot be added as an after thought.does not have this problem. These collectively can be referred to as ³wireless network security´ (Russell 2001. who already have enough capital. 172) Information Security Model Before seeking to design and implement wireless security. however. In attempting to avoid security problems like those that plagued the first-generation cellular systems. a security leak exists. Providers could lose money through fraudulent use of the cellular system or unauthorized disclosure of user information over the airwaves. The players are multi-billion dollar companies. the following entities must cooperate to create the secure wireless system: ‡ Government regulator ‡ Network infrastructure provider ‡ Wireless service provider ‡ Wireless equipment provider ‡ Wireless user (Russell 2001. In this case. 173). An often overlooked area of financial liability for cellular providers is in the area of information security.

we can use the information security model proposed by the National Security Telecommunications and Information Systems Security Committee (NSTISSC). The columns on the right side of the cube detail the three broad categories of security measures that can be pursued to protect the information. but rather to present the major issues of wireless security. The cube is thus split into 27 smaller cubes. each of which must be examined for risks and solutions in any extensive security audit.´ Therefore. This document. is not meant to contain such an audit. .security. Along the top edge of the cube is the three states information while the rows on the left side of the cube are the information characteristics that the security policy should provide. on the other hand. the objectives of future wireless technology. and the security measures needed to reach those goals.

possibility of interference increases.Wireless Security Issues Wireless systems face a number of security challenges. these devices often have extremely limited computing power. As encryption is improved in the same device. ‡ To ensure that the resources and services provided to users are adequately protected against misuse or misappropriation. and thieves can easily conceal them. an abuser can intentionally mount a denial-ofservice attack (lowering availability) by jamming the frequencies used. Moreover.Physical security can pose problems as well. . but this also means that they are more likely than other pieces of technology to get lost or stolen. as is available bandwidth (Russell 2001. Iowa State University professor Steve Russell comments that ³an RF engineer using $50 worth of readilyavailable components can build a simple short-range jammer for any of the common microwave frequencies´ (Russell 2001.S. This can result in a loss of signal for users. 5-26). one of which comes from interference. Dept. ‡ To ensure that the security features are compatible with worldwide availability. Every new technology must be analyzed for security issues before it is fully implemented. 174). Because of their size. 174). ‡ To ensure that information generated by or relating to a user is adequately protected against misuse or misappropriation. U. of Commerce. Even then. one must keep a careful eye on any new issues that may develop. speed is consequently lowered. As more wireless devices begin to use the same section of electromagnetic spectrum. This could manifest lower levels in the encryption that protects the information (NIST. Cellular phones and other handheld devices were designed to be small and mobile.

‡ To ensure that the security features are adequately standardized to ensure world-wide interoperability and roaming between providers. it can use any part of the frequency spectrum. Ultra Wideband uses a frequency of . or UWB. ‡ To ensure that the implementation of security features and mechanisms can be extended and enhanced as required by new threats and services. ‡ To ensure that security features enable new µe-commerce¶ services and other advanced applications. especially when the system is faced with specific threats. ‡ To ensure that the level of protection to users and providers of services is considered to be better than that provided in contemporary fixed and mobile networks. low powered electrical pulses that are not directed at one particular frequency but rather are spread across the entire spectrum). The secret to UWB is that it is typically detected as noise. 4G HARDWARE-Ultra Wide Band Networks Ultra Wideband technology. Since the signal is disguised as noise. An Ultra Wideband device works by emitting a series of short. but can be decoded by another device that recognizes UWB and can reassemble it back into a signal. These goals will help to direct security efforts. which means that it can use frequencies that are currently in use by other radio frequency devices. is an advanced transmission technology that can be used in the implementation of a 4G network. This highly specific kind of noise does not cause interference with current radio frequency devices.

between 3. tune.1to 10. For this reason. and turn up signal information.´ a smart antenna can send signals back in the same direction that they came from. UWB uses all frequencies from high to low. actual noise would look the same across a range of frequencies it has no shape. but can also . Smart Antennas Multiple ³smart antennas´ can be employed to help find. Interference would have to spread across the spectrum uniformly to obscure the pulse. special antennas are needed to tune and aim the signal.6 2GHz. but curves across the spectrum. Nevertheless. because of the weakness of the UWB signal. regular noise that may have the same frequency as the pulse itself does not cancel out the pulse. This means that the antenna system cannot only hear many times louder. Since the antennas can both ³listen´ and ³talk. The pulse can be called ³shaped noise´ because it is not flat. thereby passing through objects like the sea or layers of rock. On the other hand. which is 6 times faster than today¶s wireless networks. UWB provides greater bandwidth ² as much as 60 megabits per second. It also uses significantly less power. since it transmit pulses instead of a continuous signal.

g. Smart antennas can thereby: ‡ Optimize available power ‡ Increase base station range and coverage ‡ Reuse available spectrum ‡ Increase bandwidth 4G will likely become a unification of different wireless n2etworks. Adaptive Array Antennas (Figure 8) represent the most advanced smart antenna approach to date using a variety of new signal processing algorithms to locate and track the user. There are two types of smart antennas: Switched Beam Antennas (Figure 7) have fixed beams of transmission. and maximize intended signal reception.respond more loudly and directly as well. IEEE . and can switch from one predefined beam to another when the user with the phone moves throughout the sector. minimize interference. including wireless LAN technologies (e.

The network operators worldwide would be able to deploy wireless mesh networks and make use of cognitive radio technology for widespread coverage and access. Therefore 4G is be able to connect various high speed networks together. Universal Mobile Telecommunication Service (UMTS) which is basically a . 3G). meaning that one device would have to have the capability of working on different networks. OFDM mechanism splits a digital signal into different narrowband and frequencies. Under this umbrella. 4G can greatly anticipate in evolving and advancing the pervasive computing.5G. One solution to this ³multi-network functional device´ is a software defined radio. so that human beings remain intact with the wireless technology intentionally and unintentionally.11). 4G can use both orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) and orthogonal frequency division multiple access (OFDMA). The reason why 4G makes use of this technology lies in its ability to minimize the intervention among symbols and channels associated to data streaming. The aim of pervasive computing is to attach itself to every living space possible. This antenna technology is used to optimize the data speed and reduce the errors in the networks. 4G needs to support a wide range of mobile devices that can roam across different types of network. These devices would have to support different networks.802. which would enable each one of us to carry digital devices even in dispersed locations. and even personal are2a networks.4G is also capable of using multiple input / multiple output technology (MIMO). integrated wireless and personalized services.

The Internet relies on packets to move files. it still can cause major problems with sensitive devices and can garble voice information to a point where it is unintelligible. IMPORTANT REVIEWS OF WIRELESS SYSTEM Packet Layer The packet layer is a layer of abstraction that separates the data being transmitted from the way that it is being transmitted.5G Features 5G technology offer high resolution for crazy cell phone user and bi-directional large bandwidth shaping. there would need to be a separate connection on each computer for each type of information and a separate network with separate routing equipment to move that information around.

the transmission .com ). the routing equipment uses information in the packet to find out where it is supposed to go and gives it an alternate route accordingly. the receiving device will know and ask for the data to be retransmitted. the capacity of packets is expandable. it would read: H. They have moved from carrying short text messages to carrying video. and other huge types of data. An example of the format of a packet carrying 896 bits of actual information can be seen in Figure 9: The ³Protocol´ section would contain whatever information was needed to explain what type of data was encoded. a packet can carry any size of information. Packets are also numbered so that if one goes missing. or a large number of packets can be sent carrying information cut up into little pieces. As long as the capacity of the transmitter is large enough. the device on the receiving end will know that something has gone wrong and can request that the packet(s) in question be sent again.Packets only require that there is an origin. If something happens to one of the routes that a packet is using. any data of any size can be encoded inside of it. and at least one route between them. a destination. Error correction data is encoded in the last part of the packet. in the case of voice using Voice over IP (VoIP).323 (Protocols. so if the transmission garbles even one bit of the information. As long as a packet obeys the standard for how to start and end. audio. As shown by the growth of the Internet over the past few years.

connection based communication to VoIP communication. Voice over IP (VoIP) Voice over IP is the current standard for voice communication over data networks. Backbones can be replaced. VoIP allows for flexibility the same way that data packets do. the primary one being International Multimedia Telecommunications and by several companies that has cheap long distance phone calls over the Internet. . One other thing that VoIP allows is slow transition from direct. which will then connect to the destination CO. However. the CO will then connect to an IPv6 Internet backbone. VoIP packets are the same as any other packet. allowing old-style telephone users to connect to their central office (CO) the same way. as far as the network is concerned. They can travel over any equipment that supports packet-based communication and They receive all of the error correction and other benefits that packets receive. Several standards already exist for VoIP.hardware will not know the difference. such as NetPhone and Go Call.

In an asymmetric (also called public key) system. Asymmetric keys are useful for one-time connections. Symmetric encryption is the more traditional form. and only the user (with her private key) can decrypt the message. Moreover. the encryption and decryption algorithms are inverses. the user can prove that she generated a message by encrypting it with her private key. The problem then is the key transportation problem: How do both sides get the key without a third party intercepting it? If an unauthorized user receives the key.Encryption Two encryption/decryption techniques are commonly used: asymmetric and symmetric encryption. In asymmetric encryption. Situations exist in cellular wireless systems where either symmetric or asymmetric keys are particularly useful. where both sides agree on a system of encrypting and decrypting messages ² the reverse of the encryption algorithm is the decryption algorithm. If the encrypted message makes sense to other parties when decrypted with the public key. then he too can decrypt the messages. but the algorithm is the same. that party can encrypt the message using the public key. two sides can settle on a specific key to use for their communications. the keys are inverses. The trick is that one cannot infer the value of one key by using the other. Modern symmetric encryption algorithms are generic and use a key to vary the algorithm. especially when used to create a symmetric key for an extended . In symmetric encryption. Thus. The solution to this problem is asymmetric encryption. then those parties know that the user must have generated that message. but the key is the same. If any party wishes to communicate with the users. an end user makes one key public and keeps the other private. Then all parties know the algorithm and the public key.

Interim standard 95 is a first and the foremost CDMA cellular technology. as a major mobile technology. other than the voice call or conference.iS-136 is a second generation cellular phone system. in Europe. Docomo launched its first digital service of PDC in 1993. iDEN allows three or six user per mobile. Although this technology originates from the Europe. GSM has its origin from the Group special Mobile. GSM technology was the first one to help establish international roaming. Unlike 1G technologies which were used to transfer analogue signals. It is also known as digital AMPS. D-AMPS were widely popular in America and Canada. GSM (Global system for mobile communication) is the most admired standard of all the mobile technologies. However now it is in the declining phase. An excellent example of this is the GSM system¶s subscriber information card placed into each phone. iDEN has a frequency of about 25Khz. GSM has enabled the users to make use of the short message services (SMS) to any mobile network at any time. and thus are strongly preferred if key transportation is not a problem. The card holds a unique symmetric key for each subscriber. symmetric keys are smaller and faster. SMS is a cheap and easy way to send a message to anyone. It is most . Meanwhile.

Wi-Max is a 3G Technology (Third Generation Technology) and it is referred to as worldwide interoperability for microwave access.EDGE has increased the GSM coverage up to three times more. UMTS. It is complex network and allows for covering radio access. EDGE is a 3G technology therefore it can be used for packet switched systems.Enhanced data rates for GSM evolution or EDGE is termed to as a backward digital technology. because it can operate with older devices. GSM EDGE. however it is now widely popular in the other countries of the world as well. It is a relatively expensive technology for the network operators because it requires new and separate infrastructure for its coverage. The GSM is the base of this technology. It is .famous by its brand name known as cdmaOne. EDGE allows for faster data transfer than existing GSM. It is a wireless technology. Digital enhanced cordless telecommunications (DECT) is another 3G Technology (Third Generation Technology). Wi-Max and CD2MA 2000. It transmits variety of wireless signals.EDGE was introduced by AT& T in 2003. UMTS conforms to ITU IMT 2000 standard.

Each MT need not do location registration every time. It¶s a 3GPP research item for Release 8. It is connected using DSL technology. The MT should be able to access the services at any place possible. Some countries in the world use GSM-900 or E-GSM. New techniques in location management might be implemented. It¶s also known as 3. In this stage the operators are planning to achieve data rates up to 100Mbps when travelling at speeds up to 1200Kmph. 'Super-3G' is an intermediate stage between 3G and 4G. They can instead do concatenated location registration. The frequency in E-GSM is extended to about 920 to 960MHZ. which reports to . The global roaming can be achieved by with the help of multi-hop networks that can include the WLANs or the satellite coverage in remote areas. So while you¶re traveling you can replace your SIM (Subscriber Identity Module) and still remain connected to the GSM (Global System for Mobile Communication). LongTerm (Radio) Evolution or LTE is also part of 3G technology. A seamless service (Ex: soft handover of the MT from one network to another or from one kind of service to other) is also important.latest mobile phones support E2-GSM.cater the needs of minor business area. paging and handover. All 2G and 3G cell phones have GSM in them.9G or ³Super 3G´ by some researchers. Mobility Management Mobility Management includes location registration.

the network that they are concatenated to a common object. A conservative approach might be proposed for the 4G systems because of the wide variety of QoS requirements. Two basic approaches can be taken towards the congestion control: avoidance or prevention of the congestion and detection and recovery after congestion. . The avoidance scheme will require the network to suitably implement the admission control (measurement based or precomputed model) and scheduling techniques. The detection and recovery would require flow control and feedback traffic management. ExMTs in a train need to re-register only when they get off the train and till the network knows that they are in the train. Congestion-Control Congestion control will be other critical issues in the high performance 4G networks.

it seems part of our culture that customers expect the highest quality and the greatest features for what they buy. this will only serve to bewilder customers in an already confusing market. the best way to help all parties is to enforce new technologies which are both beneficial to the company and the user and also eco-friendly. Some hardware codec¶s are currently available in the market. Indeed. Customers want the features delivered to them. significant increase in computational capacity is needed for software-based encoders. Providers are slashing prices while scrambling for the needed infrastructure to provide the latest features as incentives. simple and straightforward. using the computer¶s CPU for processing. The mobile operator must take advantage of the opening offered by mobile video services as a means to produce traffic. but current products need to evolve in order to reduce cost and power requirements. If the government wants to help. they will most likely be used to record and play video (and audio) on PCs. One of the key issues for the operator consists of the definition of an ³ideal´ service roadmap. competition in the industry is heating up. often turning to various solutions. Therefore. Combining these patents into one single license fee will be quite challenging.Conclusion Consumers demand that software and hardware be user-friendly and perform well. However. which now includes a myriad of wireless devices. and customer loyalty. Hardware-based codec¶s will be preferred in mobile phones as they consume a smaller amount of power and are faster than software routines. revenue. . Unfortunately. The cellular telephone industry. Meanwhile. is no exception. Gadgets providers want to make money in a cutthroat industry.
