GSM) .INTRODUCTION  Built upon GSM technology on packet switching  Based  Supports the existing mobile technologies (CDMA.

 Advantages of packet switching over circuit switching . Jigsaw puzzle.It eliminates the need to establish a switching- connection before transmission can begin. The information to be sent is broken down into packets (of fixed size) and sent on to the network one after the other.  Packet switching. Eg.Circuit switching and packet switching  circuit switching.Data transmission begins only after switchingthe sender has verified that a dedicated connection to the receiver exists.

.WORKING OF GPRS  Why GPRS???  Modulation scheme. Each slot of duration 4.MSK-shifting of scheme.615ns.MSKcarrier 180 in phase  Spectrum divided into 200Khz carrier frequencies using FDMA  Each carrier is divided into 8 time slots.


IMPLEMENTING GPRS  Introduces a new class of nodes.GSN (gprs nodessupport nodes) GSN is divided into SGSN and GGSN (serving GPRS support node and gateway GPRS support node) Connectivity between SGSN and GGSN.   .

Responsible for delivering packets to & from mobile devices. GGSN Interface between GPRS network and packet switching network.     .GPRS support nodes(GSN) SGSN Takes care of tasks like routing. handover and IP address assignment. Responsible for necessary conversion of transport of data.
