Total GSM Concept


Published on

The GSM network is comprised of the following components:
Network Elements
The GSM network incorporates a number of network elements to support mobile equipment. They are listed and described in the GSM network elements section of this chapter.
GSM subsystems
In addition, the network includes subsystems that are not formally recognized as network elements but are necessary for network operation. These are described in the GSM subsystems (non-network elements) section of this chapter.
Standardized Interfaces
GSM specifies standards for interfaces between network elements, which ensure the connectivity of GSM equipment from different manufacturers. These are listed in the Standardized interfaces section of this chapter.
Network Protocols
For most of the network communications on these interfaces, internationally recognized communications protocols have been used
These are identified in the Network protocols section of this chapter.

GSM Frequencies
The frequency allocations for GSM 900, Extended GSM and Digital Communications Systems are identified in the GSM frequencies section of this chapter.
GSM networks are digital and can cater for high system capacities. They are consistent with the world wide digitization of the telephone network, and are an extension of the Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN), using a digital radio interface between the cellular network and the mobile subscriber equipment
The GSM system provides a greater subscriber capacity than analogue systems. GSM allows 25 kHz. Per user, that is, eight conversations per 200kHz. Channel pair (a pair comprising one transmit channel and one receive channel). Digital channel coding and the modulation used makes the signal resistant to interference from the cells where the same frequencies are re-used (co-channel interference); a Carrier to Interference Ratio (C/I) level of 9 dB is achieved, as opposed to the 18 dB typical with analogue cellular. This allows increased geographic reuse by permitting a reduction in the number of cells in the reuse pattern. Since this number is directly controlled by the amount of interference, the radio transmission design can deliver acceptable performance.

  6. 6. DIGITAL NETWORKS GSM networks are digital and can cater for high systemcapacities. They are consistent with the world widedigitization of the telephone network, and are anextension of the Integrated Services Digital Network(ISDN), using a digital radio interface between the cellularnetwork and the mobile subscriber equipment.5/31/2013www.TempusTelcosys.com6
  7. 7. INCREASED CAPACITY The GSM system provides a greater subscriber capacity than analoguesystems. GSM allows 25 kHz. Per user, that is, eight conversations per 200kHz.Channel pair (a pair comprising one transmit channel and one receivechannel). Digital channel coding and the modulation used makes the signalresistant to interference from the cells where the same frequencies are re-used (co-channel interference); a Carrier to Interference Ratio (C/I) level of 9dB is achieved, as opposed to the 18 dB typical with analogue cellular.

  13. 13. SUBSCRIBER IDENTIFICATION International Mobile Subscriber Identity (IMSI) Just the IMEI identifies the mobile equipment, other numbers are used toidentify the mobile subscriber. Different subscriber identities are used in differentphases of call setup. The International Mobile Subscriber Identity (IMSI) is theprimary identity of the subscriber within the mobile network and is permanentlyassigned to that subscriber. Temporary Mobile Subscriber Identity (TMSI) The GSM system can also assign a Temporary Mobile Subscriber Identity (TMSI).After the subscriber’s IMSI has been initialized on the system, the TMSI can be usedfor sending backward and forward across the network to identify the subscriber.The system automatically changes the TMSI at regular intervals, thus protecting thesubscriber from being identified by someone attempting to monitor the radiochannels. The TMSI is a local number and is always transmitted with the Localnumbers and is always transmitted with the Location Area Identification (LAI) toavoid ambiguities.5/31/2013www.TempusTelcosys.com13
  14. 14. SUBSCRIBER IDENTIFICATION MODULE (SIM) By making a distinction between the subscriber identity and the mobileequipment identity, a GSM PLMN can route calls and perform billing based on theidentity of the subscriber rather than the mobile equipment being used. This canbe done using a removable Subscriber Information Module (SIM). A ”smart card” isone possible implementation of a SIM module. IMSI. This is transmitted at initialization of the mobile equipment. TMSI This is updated periodically by the PLMN MSISDN This is made up of a country code, a national code and a subscribernumber. Location Area Identity (LAI) This identified the current location of the subscriber. Subscriber Authentication Key (KI) This is used to authenticate the SIM.5/31/2013www.TempusTelcosys.com14
  15. 15. EQUIPMENT IDENTITY NUMBER International Mobile station Equipment Identity (IMEI) Each MS is identified by an International Mobile station EquipmentIdentity (IMEI) number which is permanently stored in the mobileequipment. On request, the MS sends this number over the signallingchannel to the MSC. The IMEI can be used to identify MS,s that arereported stolen or operating incorrectly. Equipment Identity Register ( EIR ) A listing of the allowed IMEI is maintained by the PLMN’s in theEquipment Identity Register (EIR) to validate the mobile equipment.5/31/2013www.TempusTelcosys.com15

  105. 105. B INTERFACE The B interface between the MSC and the VLR uses theMAP/TCAP protocol. Most MSCs are associated with a VLR, making the B interface"internal". Whenever the MSC needs access to data regarding a MS locatedin its area, it interrogates the VLR using the MAP/B protocol overthe B interface.5/31/2013www.TempusTelcosys.com105
  106. 106. C INTERFACE The C interface is between the HLR and a MSC. Each call originating outside of GSM (i.e., a MS terminating callfrom the PSTN) has to go through a Gateway to obtain the routinginformation required to complete the call, and the MAP/TCAPprotocol over the C interface is used for this purpose. Also, the MSC may optionally forward billing information to theHLR after call clearing.5/31/2013www.TempusTelcosys.com106

  119. 119. CHANNEL CODING FOR SPEECH The 260 bits of speech info from the vocoder is brokendown into three parts. Class 1a- 50 bits , these represent the filter coefficientsof the speech and are the most important for properdetection of the speech at the receiver and hence aregiven maximum protection. 3 additional parity bits arederived from the class 1a bits for cyclic redundancycheck (CRC).5/31/2013www.TempusTelcosys.com119
  120. 120. CHANNEL CODING FOR SPEECH CONT’D Class 1b - 132 bits are not parity checked but arefed into the convolutional coder along with 4 tailbits which are used to set the registers in thereceiver to a known state for decoding purpose. Class 1b- 78 bits, these are not so important andare not protected but are combined with theoutput of the convolution coder.5/31/2013www.TempusTelcosys.com120
  121. 121. CONVOLUTIONAL CODER CC The Convolutional coder is a series of shift registersimplemented using logic gates, where for every oneinput bit we get 2 output bits. Hence it is called ½ coder. Here k=5 is the constraint length, it means there are 5shift register and each bit has memory depth of 4, meaning it can influence the output of up to four nextsuccessive bits. This is useful during reception as bitscan be derived even if a few consecutive bits are lostdue to errors or corruption.5/31/2013www.TempusTelcosys.com121

  127. 127. DATA CHANNEL CODING The data bits are received in blocks of 240 bits. Theseare directly convolution coded after adding 4 tail bits. The output of the CC is now 488 bits, which actuallyincreases the bitrate to 24.4 Kbps. To keep the bitrate constant on the air interface weneed to puncture the output of the CC. Hence, we havea final bitrate of 22.8 Kbps again .5/31/2013www.TempusTelcosys.com127
  128. 128. CHANNEL CODING CONT’D The above explanation was given keeping in viewa full rate Traffic, Control, or Data channel. For Half rate or Lesser rates the same principle ofchannel coding holds good, with slightdifferences in the encoding process.5/31/2013www.TempusTelcosys.com128
  129. 129. INTERLEAVING Having encoded the logical channelinformation, the next step is to build its bitstream into bursts that can be transmitted withinthe TDMA frame structure. This is the stagewhere the interleaving process is carried out. Interleaving spreads the content of oneinformation block across several TDMA timeslotsor bursts.5/31/2013www.TempusTelcosys.com129
  130. 130. INTERLEAVING CONT’D The following interleaving depths are used : Speech – 8 blocks Control – 4 blocks Data – 22 blocks The interleaving process for a speech block is shownwherein which a 456 bit speech block is divided into 8blocks of 57 bits each and each of these odd and even57 bit blocks are interleaved diagonally on to alternatebursts on the TDMA frame.5/31/2013www.TempusTelcosys.com130

  134. 134. DATA INTERLEAVING CONT’D Here the data block of 456 bits is divided into 4 blocks of114 bits each. The first 6 bits from each of the 114 bit blocks isinserted in to each frame, the second 6 bits from eachof the 114 bits into the next frame and so on spreadingeach 114 block over 19 TDMA bursts while the entire456 bits is spread over 22 TDMA bursts. Thus the data interleaving is said to have a depth of 22bursts.5/31/2013www.TempusTelcosys.com134
  135. 135. DATA INTERLEAVING CONT’D The reason why data is spread over such along period oftime is that if data burst is corrupted or lost, only a smallpart of it is lost which can be reproduced at the receiver. This wide interleaving depth does produce a time delayduring transmission but that is acceptable since it doesnot affect the data signal quality at the receiver, unlikespeech where delay could result in bad quality of signalto the subscriber. *Note – The interleaving used in data is diagonalinterleaving.5/31/2013www.TempusTelcosys.com135
