What is GSM??
(Global System for Mobile Communications)

GSM Architecture
‡ Three broad parts
± Mobile Station (MS): carried by the subscriber ± Base Station Subsystem: control radio link with MS ± Network Subsystem: its main part is MSC

‡ Interfaces:
± Um Interface : known as air interface or radio link. ± Abis Interface: between BTS and BSC ± A Interface: between BSC and MSC

Mobile Station
‡ ME(mobile equipment)
± the terminal

‡ SIM (Subscriber identity Module) ± provides personal mobility.
± Can insert the SIM card into another GSM terminal and use

Base Station Subsystem ‡ BTS (Base Transceiver Station) ± handle the radio link protocols with the Mobile Station ± many BTSs in a large urban area ‡ BSC (Base Station Controller) ± manages the radio resources for one or more BTSs ± handles such as: channel setup . frequence hopping and handovers. ± connection between MS and MSC .

Network Subsystem ‡ MSC (Mobile Services Switching Center) ± acts like a normal switching node of the PSTN or ISDN ± provides the connection to the fixed networks (such as the PSTN or ISDN). along with the current location of the mobile. ‡ HLR (Home Location Register ) ± contains information of each subscriber registered in the corresponding GSM network. ± logically one HLR per GSM network .

‡ VLR (Visitor Location Register) ± contains selected information from the HLR. ± each mobile currently located in the geographical area controlled by the VLR.Network Subsystem cont. necessary for call control and provision of the subscribed services. ‡ EIR (The Equipment Identity Register) ± a database that contains a list of all valid mobile equipment on the network. ‡ AuC (The Authentication Center) ± is a protected database:secret key of SIM .

GSM Features ‡ Multiple access: use TDMA/FDMA to share the limited radio spectrum ± The FDMA part involves the division by frequency of the (maximum) 25 MHz bandwidth into 124 carrier frequencies spaced 200 kHz apart. ± Each of these carrier frequencies is then divided in time. ‡ GSM is a digital network ± Based on Circuit-switch . using a TDMA scheme.

Messages are transported in a store-andforward fashion. Messages can also be stored in the SIM card for later retrieval . ± an acknowledgement of receipt is provided to the sender. for sending messages such as traffic updates or news updates.GSM Features cont. ‡ SMS: Short Message Service ± is a bi-directional service for short (up to 160 bytes) messages. ± can also be used in a cell-broadcast mode.

GPRS System (General Packet Radio Service) .

25) and send them out into another network. .GPRS Architecture ‡ Introduce two new nodes into GSM network ± SGSN (the Serving GPRS Support Node): ‡ Keep track of the location of the mobile within its service area and send/receive packets from the mobile .g. passing them on. or receiving them from the GGSN ± GGSN (Gateway GPRS Support Node): ‡ convert the GSM packets into other packet protocols (e.IP or X.

± Establishes a Packet Data Protocol (PDP) which is logical connection between the mobile and GGSN ± now visible to the outside fixed networks . SGSN communicates with GGSN. GPRS packets are sent sent from the base station to SGSN. but unlike circuit-switched data calls which connects to MSC.GPRS Features ‡ Log on to GPRS ± A GPRS-capable terminal communicates with GSM base Stations.

GPRS Features Cont. ± No delay for sending data . ± SGSN and GGSN use GPRS tunnel protocol (GTP) which operates over the top of TCP/IP to encapsulate the packets ± Tunnels: information may be encrypted and additional data is added to each packet to prevent tampering ‡ Packed based ± No dial-up. just as with a LAN connection.

GPRS Features Cont. and not the idle time ± users need to confirm their agreement to pay for the delivery of content from the service. ± pay for the amount of data they actually communicate. This is performed by using WAP (Wireless Application Protocol) ± unsolicited packets may not be charged ± voice and Data Communication at the same time ± can be viewed as a sub-network of the Internet .

‡ Spectrum Efficiency ± users can share the resource (Radio link).2kbps.(GSM:9.6Kbps) . ± Theoretical Max speeds up to 171.it is used only when users are actually sending or receiving data ‡ Speed: Based on GMSK ± a modulation technique known as Gaussian minimumshift keying.GPRS Features Cont.

± a channel that is 200kHz wide. is divided into 8 separate data streams. GSM only use one channel. ‡ complement rather than replace the current data services available through today¶s GSM ± doesn't require new radio spectrum ± supports TDMA: also use for IS-136 .GPRS Features Cont.4kbps typical). each carrying maximum 20kbps(14. GPRS combine up to 8 of these channels.

but is expected to higher data rates through possible incorporation of techniques such as EDGE. . in addition to Point-to-Multipoint support. Point to point GPRS will be supported ‡ Phrase 2 ± net yet fully defined.GPRS Phrase ‡ Phrase 1 ± expectedly to be available commercially in 2001.

EDGE (Enhanced Data Rates for GSM Evolution) .

from 8.EDGE Features ‡ Introduce new methods at the physical layer ± new form of modulation: 8PSK(phrase Shift Keying) ‡ introduced as a complement to GMSK (Gaussian Filter Minimum Shift Keying) ‡ 8PSK: use 8 phrases to carry signals ± Different ways of encoding ‡ nine MCS(Module Coding Schemes) have been defined.8kbps per timeslot(MCS-1 with GMSK modulation) up to 59.2kbps per timeslot(MCS-9 with 8PSK modulation) ± High radio interface data rates (up to 384kbps) .

SGSN) stay the same ± Can be introduced smoothly in GPRS(doesn¶t require any new elements) . ± Software upgrades to BSC and Base Stations can be carried out remotely. ‡ Provides an evolutionary migration path from GPRS to UMTS ± Only one EDGE transceiver unit need to be added to each cell.EDGE Features cont. ± Higher layer protocols (GGSN.

± Also introduced into existing IS-136 networks . ± and for GPRS(General Packet Radio Service) to meet the demands of wireless multimedia applications.EDGE Features cont. ‡ EDGE is a technology both for ± HSCSD(High Speed Circuit Switched Data) is simply a Circuit Switched Data call in which a single user can take over up to four separate channels at the same time.

Such as GTP(GPRS Tunneling Protocol) ‡ As a consequence EDGE is a way to provide 3G services on 2G networks .EDGE Features cont. ‡ The Data networking for WCDMA will likely be based on EDGE/GPRS infrastructure protocols.

D-AMPS operators mainly promote UWC-136.
