  • Base Transceiver Station
    When a subscriber uses the MS to make a call in the network, the MS transmits the call request to the base transceiver station (BTS). The BTS includes all the radio equipment (i.e., antennas, signal processing devices, and amplifiers) necessary for radio transmission within a geographical area called a cell. The BTS is responsible for establishing the link to the MS and for modulating and demodulating radio signals between the MS and the BTS.
  • GPRS Applications
    Mobility—The ability to maintain constant voice and data communications while on the move
    Immediacy—Allows subscribers to obtain connectivity when needed, regardless of location and without a lengthy login session
    Localization—Allows subscribers to obtain information relevant to their current location
    The combination of these characteristics provides a wide spectrum of possible applications that can be offered to mobile subscribers. These include:
    Communications—E-mail; fax; unified messaging; intranet/Internet access
    Value-added services—Information services; games
    E-commerce—Retail; ticket purchasing; banking; financial trading
    Location-based applications—Navigation; traffic conditions; airline/rail schedules; location finder
    Vertical applications—Freight delivery; fleet management; sales-force automation

  • 1. SEMINAR ON GPRS(General Packet Radio Service) Submitted By Mustahid Ali
  • 2. GPRS(General Packet Radio Service) 1. It is a new non voice value added service that allows information to be sent and received across a mobile telephone network. 2. It supplements today's Circuit Switched Data and Short Message Service
  • 3. User Feature Of GPRS 1. SPEED 2. IMMEDIACY 3. NEW APPLICATION, BETTER APPLICATION 4. SERVICE ACCESS
  • 4. SPEED 1. Theoretical Maximum Speed Of up to 172.2 kbps. 2. It is about ten times as fast as current Circuit Switched Data services on GSM networks 3. It is less costly mobile data service compared to SMS and Circuit Switched Data IMMEDIACY 1. It facilitates instant connections. 2. It is also referred as "always connected". 3. It is a very important feature for time critical applications such as remote credit card authorization
  • 5. New Application & Better Application 1. Fully Internet application such as web browsing and chatting. 2. File Transfer. 3. Home Automation (the ability to remotely access and control in-house appliances and machines). Service Access 1. To use GPRS, users specifically need’s mobile phone or terminal that supports GPRS. 2. A subscription to a mobile telephone network that supports GPRS, use of GPRS must be enabled for that user. 3. Automatic access to the GPRS may be allowed by some mobile network operators, others will require a specific opt-in knowledge of how to send and/ or receive GPRS information using their specific model of mobile phone. 4. GPRS users can access any web page or other Internet applications
  • 6. Network features • • • • Packet switching Spectrum efficiency Internet aware Support TDMA & GSM
  • 7. Packet Switching 1. GPRS involves overlaying a packet based air interface on the existing circuit switched GSM network. 2. In GPRS, the information is split into separate but related "packets" before being transmitted and reassembled at the receiving end Spectrum Efficiency 1. Packet switching means that GPRS radio resources are used only when users are actually sending or receiving data. Rather than dedicating a radio channel to a mobile data user for a fixed period of time, the available radio resource can be concurrently shared between several users. 2. This efficient use of scarce radio resources means that large numbers of GPRS users can potentially share the bandwidth and be served from a single cell..
  • 8. Internet Aware 1. GPRS fully enables Mobile Internet functionality by allowing inter-working between the existing Internet and the new GPRS network. 2. It Provide any service that is used over the fixed Internet today- File Transfer Protocol (FTP), web browsing, chat, email, telnet, etc. Supports TDMA & GSM 1. It Support both GSM and TDMA (Time Division Multiple Access) standard popular in North and South America.
  • 9. GPRS Terminal The term terminal equipment is generally used to refer to the variety of mobile phones and mobile stations that can be used in a GPRS environment. The equipment is defined by terminal classes and types 1.Class A Terminals: Class A terminals support GPRS and other GSM services (such as SMS and voice) simultaneously. This support includes simultaneous attach, activation, monitor, and traffic. Class A terminals can make or receive calls on two services simultaneously 2. Class B Terminals: Class B terminals can monitor GSM and GPRS channels simultaneously but can support only one of these services at a time. Therefore, a Class B terminal can support simultaneous attach, activation, and monitor, but not simultaneous traffic 3. Class C Terminals: Class C terminals support only sequential attaches. The user must select which service to connect to. Therefore, a Class C terminal can make or receive calls from only the manually selected (or default) service
  • 10. Mobility Management An MS(Mobile Station) has three states in the GPRS system • Active • Standby • Idle
  • 11. Active • • • • Data is transmitted between an MS and the GPRS network only when the MS is in the active state. In the active state, the SGSN knows the cell location of the MS. Packet transmission to an active MS is initiated by packet paging. When an MS has a packet to transmit, it must access the uplink channel .The uplink channel is shared by a number of MSs. The MS requests use of the channel in a random access message. The BSS allocates an unused channel to the MS and sends an access grant message in reply to the random access message.
  • 12. Standby State • • • • In the standby state, only the routing area of the MS is known. When the SGSN sends a packet to an MS that is in the standby state, the MS must be paged because the SGSN knows the routing area of the MS. On receiving the packet-paging message, the MS relays its cell location to the SGSN to establish the active state. The main reason for the standby state is to reduce the load in the GPRS network caused by cell-based routing update messages and to conserve the MS battery.
  • 13. Idle State • • In the idle state, the MS does not have a logical GPRS context activated. In this state, the MS can receive only those multicast messages that can be received by any GPRS MS. Because the GPRS network infrastructure does not know the location of the MS, it is not possible to send messages to the MS from external data networks
  • 14. GPRS Access Mode The GPRS access modes specify whether or not the GGSN requests user authentication at the access point to a PDN (Public Data Network). • Transparent: No security authorization/authentication is requested by the GGSN • Non-Transparent: GGSN acts as a proxy for authenticating. It uses the Password Authentication Protocol (PAP) or Challenge Handshake Authentication Protocol (CHAP) message issued by the mobile terminal
  • 15. GPRS Process • • • • • • 1. Attach process—Process by which the MS attaches (i.e, connects) to the SGSN in a GPRS network 2. Authentication process—Process by which the SGSN authenticates the mobile subscriber 3. PDP activation process—Process by which a user session is established between the MS and the destination network 4. Detach process—Process by which the MS detaches (i.e., disconnects) from the SGSN in the GPRS network 5. Network-initiated PDP request for static IP address—Process by which a call from the packet data network reaches the MS using a static IP address 6. Network-initiated PDP request for dynamic IP address—Process by which a call from the packet data network reaches the MS using a dynamic IP address
  • 16. GSM Network Elements ∀ • Mobile station (MS) ∀ ∀ ∀ ∀ ∀ ∀ ∀ • Base transceiver station (BTS) • Base station controller (BSC) • Base station subsystem (BSS) • Mobile switching center (MSC) • Authentication center (AuC) • Home location register (HLR) • Visitor location register (VLR)
  • 17. 1. Mobile Station (MS): The MS can contain the following components: • Mobile terminal (MT)—GSM cellular handset • Terminal equipment (TE)—PC or personal digital assistant (PDA) The MS can be two interconnected physical devices (MT and TE) with a point-to-point interface or a single device with both functions integrated. 2. Base Transceiver Station (BTS): a) When a subscriber uses the MS to make a call in the network, the MS transmits the call request to the base transceiver station (BTS). b) The BTS includes all the radio equipment (i.e., antennas, signal processing devices, and amplifiers) necessary for radio transmission within a geographical area called a cell. c) The BTS is responsible for establishing the link to the MS and for modulating and demodulating radio signals between the MS and the BTS.
  • 18. 3. Base Station Controller: a) The base station controller (BSC) is the controlling component of the radio network, and it manages the BTSs. b) The BSC reserves radio frequencies for communications and handles the handoff between BTSs when an MS roams from one cell to another. c) The BSC is responsible for paging the MS for incoming calls. 4. Base Station Subsystem a) A GSM network is comprised of many base station subsystems (BSSs), each controlled by a BSC. b) The BSS performs the necessary functions for monitoring radio connections to the MS, coding and decoding voice, and rate adaptation to and from the wireless network.
  • 19. 5. Mobile Switching Center: a) The mobile switching center (MSC) is a digital ISDN switch that sets up connections to other MSCs and to the BSCs. b) The MSCs form the wired (fixed) backbone of a GSM network and can switch calls to the public switched telecommunications network (PSTN). c) An MSC can connect to a large number of BSCs. 6. Equipment Identity Register: a) The equipment identity register (EIR) is a database that stores the international mobile equipment identities (IMEIs) of all the mobile stations in the network. b) The IMEI is an equipment identifier assigned by the manufacturer of the mobile station. c) The EIR provides security features such as blocking calls from handsets that have been stolen.
  • 20. 7. Home Location Register (HLR): a) The home location register (HLR) is the central database for all users to register to the GSM network. b) It stores static information about the subscribers such as the international mobile subscriber identity (IMSI), subscribed services, and a key for authenticating the subscriber. c) The HLR also stores dynamic subscriber information (i.e., the current location of the mobile subscriber). 8. Authentication Center (AuC): Associated with the HLR is the authentication center (AuC); this database contains the algorithms for authenticating subscribers. 9. Visitor Location Register (VLR): It is a distributed database that temporarily stores the information about the subscriber roam into a location area
  • 21. GPRS Network Elements Terminal Equipment: It require new equipment that support GPRS and that is also backward compatible with GSM for voice calls BTS: A software upgrade is required in the existing base transceiver site. BSC: The base station controller (BSC) requires a software upgrade and the installation of new hardware called the packet control unit (PCU). Serving GPRS Support Node (SGSN) : The SGSN delivers packets to mobile stations within its service area. Maintain the profile register of the GPRs subscriber. The SGSN is connected to the base station subsystem to the PCU in the BSC. Gateway GPRS Support Node (GGSN): GGSNs are used as interfaces to external IP networks such as the public Internet, other mobile service providers' GPRS services, or enterprise intranets.

Immediacy—Allows subscribers to obtain connectivity when needed, regardless of location and without a lengthy login session 3. Localization—Allows subscribers to obtain information relevant to their current location The combination of these characteristics provides a wide spectrum of possible applications that can be offered to mobile subscribers. These include: a) Communications—E-mail; fax; unified messaging; intranet/Internet access b) Value-added services—Information services; games c) E-commerce—Retail; ticket purchasing; banking; financial trading d) Location-based applications—Navigation; traffic conditions; airline/rail schedules; location finder e) Vertical applications—Sales Support, Parcel Delivery,Dispatching.
  • 23. Limitation of The GPRS • Limited Cell Capacity: There are limited radio resources and voice and GPRS both uses same network resources hence they impact the existing cell capacity. • Speeds Much Lower In Reality: The total bandwidth is divided among different user. Hence a single user cannot get the transmission speed up to 172.1 kbps. • Sub-optimal Modulation:GPRS is based on a modulation technique known as Gaussian minimum-shift keying (GMSK). EDGE is based on a new modulation scheme that allows a much higher bit rate across the air interface. • Transit Delays: GPRS packets are sent in all different directions to reach the same destination. Hence one or some of those packets to be lost or corrupted during the data transmission over the radio link. • No Store And Forward: There is no storage mechanism incorporated into the GPRS standard as compare to SMS.
