  3. 3. Evolution of mobile Cellular Networks
  4. 4. It all started like this • First telephone (photophone) – Alexander Bell, 1880 • First radio communication system – G. Marconi(1897) • The first car mounted radio telephone – 1921
  5. 5. Going further • 1946 – First commercial mobile radio-telephone service by Bell and AT&T in Saint Louis, USA. Half duplex (PTT) – Push-to-talk cellular calls provide half-duplex communications while one person transmits, the other(s) receive. This combines the operational advantages of PTT with the interference resistance and other virtues of mobile phones. • 1973 – First handheld cellular phone – Motorola. • First cellular net Bahrein 1978
  6. 6. Introduction to cellular network  A cellular network  Radio network distributed over land areas called cells,  Each cell served by at least one fixed location transceiver known as a cell site or Base Station(BS).  When joined together these cells provide radio coverage over a wide geographic area.  Enables a large number of portable transceivers (e.g., mobile phones, pagers, etc.) to communicate with each other and with fixed transceivers and telephones anywhere in the network, via base stations, even if some of the transceivers are moving through more than one cell during transmission.
  7. 7. Cellular Network
  8. 8. Cellular Network
  9. 9. Some Cellular Terminology  Cell- service area divided into small area known as cell • Mobile station (MS) - Device used to communicate over the cellular network. • Base station transceiver (BST) - Transmitter/ receiver used to transmit/ receive signals over the radio interface section of the network. • Base station controller (BSC) - Controls communication between a group of BST's and a single MSC. • Mobile switching centre (MSC) - The heart of the network, sets up and maintains calls made over the network. • Public switched telephone network (PSTN) - The land based section of the network. • Handoff/Handover : handover or handoff refers to the process of transferring an ongoing call or data session from one channel connected to the core network to another. Handoff decision made based on signal strength.
  10. 10. Why Cellular ? Cellular networks offer a number of advantages over alternative solutions: • Wireless access (very convenient) • Access from anywhere within the coverage area. • Reduced power use: • Low power radio (hence better portability and more talk-time per battery charge) • ―Spectral efficiency‖ (more users in a limited frequency band) through frequency reuse: • increased capacity • larger coverage area • reduced interference from other signals
  11. 11. Cellular principles  In a cellular radio system, a land area to be supplied with radio service is divided into regular shaped cells, which can be hexagonal, square, circular or some other irregular shapes, although hexagonal cells are conventional.  Each of these cells is assigned multiple frequencies (f1 - f6) which have corresponding radio base stations.  Example of frequency reuse factor or pattern 1/4  The group of frequencies can be reused in other cells, provided that the same frequencies are not reused in adjacent neighbouring cells as that would cause co-channel interference. This increased the capacity in a cellular network.
  12. 12. Cont… • In a standard FDMA system, there must be at least a one cell gap between cells which reuse the same frequency. • The frequency reuse factor is the rate at which the same frequency can be used in the network. • It is 1/K where K is the number of cells which cannot use the same frequencies for transmission. Common values for the frequency reuse factor are 1/3, 1/4, 1/7, 1/9 and 1/12 (or 3, 4, 7, 9 and 12 depending on notation).
  13. 13. Generations of Cellular Mobile Communication Cellular mobile communication has generations: – Generation (0) – Generation # 1 – Generation #2 – Generation #2.5 – Generation #3 – Generation #4
  14. 14. Generation 0 (0g) • Radio Telephone -1945 • Not officially categorized as mobile phones, since they did not support the automatic change of channel frequency during calls, which allows the user to move from one cell (the base station coverage area) to another cell, a feature called "handover". • Technologies used in pre cellular systems included the Push to Talk (PTT or manual), Mobile Telephone System (MTS), Improved Mobile Telephone Service (IMTS), and Advanced Mobile Telephone System (AMTS) systems.
  15. 15. First generation (1G)  Radio signals that 1G networks use are analog [routines for sending voice] ,  Mostly telephony only:  Virtually no data capability other than special device with analog modem.  In 1G network, voice calls were simply modulated to a higher frequency, typically to 150MHz and up.  No International roaming  All systems are incompatible  Little capacity – cannot accommodate masses of subscribers  This generation is now mostly obsolete.
  16. 16. First Generation Technology • 1G system deployed in US and canada was known as AMPS. • Advanced Mobile Phone System (AMPS) – AMPS is an analog cellular phone system using FDMA. – A total of 40MHz of spectrum was allocated from the 800MHz band by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for AMPS. – It was first deployed in Chicago, with a service area of 2100 square miles . – AMPS offered 832 full duplex channels, with a data rate of 10 kbps. – Although omnidirectional antennas were used in the earlier AMPS implementation, it was realized that using directional antennas would yield better cell reuse. – A 7-cell reuse pattern was adopted for AMPS. – Designed for grade of service (GoS) of 2% blocking. • In Europe, TACS (Total Access Communications System) was introduced with 1000 channels and a data rate of 8 kbps. • AMPS and TACS use the frequency modulation (FM) technique for radio transmission
  17. 17. Second Generation (2G) • A new design was introduced into the mobile switching center of second- generation systems. • The use of base station controllers (BSCs) lightens the load placed on the MSC (mobile switching center) found in first-generation systems • In addition to enhancements in MSC design, the mobile-assisted handoff mechanism was introduced . • In 2G, voice communications were digitally encrypted. • Allowed enhanced data services – The data capability includes Internet access and picture sharing. • Support some limited data communications, such as Fax and short messaging service (SMS)
  18. 18. Second Generation (2G) • Increased capacity • More security • Compatibility  Compared to first-generation systems, second-generation (2G) systems use digital multiple access technology  Multiple access technology,  TDMA (time division multiple access) and  CDMA (code division multiple access).  Global System for Mobile Communications, or GSM , uses TDMA technology to support multiple users
  19. 19. Examples of 2G • A 2G system is called personal communications services (PCS) in marketing literature. • Global System for Mobile (GSM) used in Europe , • Cordless Telephone • Personal Access Communications Systems (PACS), • Digital European Cordless Telephone (DECT), • IS-36 used in US. • Personal Digital communication (PDC) in Japan.
  20. 20. Global System for Mobile (GSM)
  21. 21. What is GSM Global System for Mobile (GSM) is a second generation cellular standard developed to cater voice services and data delivery using digital modulation More than 800 million end users in 212 countries (Asia, Africa, Europe,Australia,America, India etc..) and representing over 70% of today's digital wireless market.  source: GSM Association
  22. 22. • Developed by Group Spéciale Mobile in1982 Aim : to replace the incompatible analog system • Presently the responsibility of GSM standardization resides with special mobile group under ETSI ( European telecommunication Standards Institute ) • Under ETSI, GSM is named as ― Global System for Mobile communication‖ • Phase I of GSM specifications was published in 1990 • Commercial service started in mid-1991 • More than 1300 million subscribers in world and 45 million subscriber in India. • GSM technology was the first one to help establish international roaming. This enabled the mobile subscribers to use their mobile phone connections in many different countries of the world’s is based on digital signals ,unlike 1G technologies which were used to transfer analogue signals.

  40. 40. Personal Communication System
  41. 41. Cellular System vs. Personal Communication System/Network (PCS/PCN) Personal Communication Services [PCS] is a system, very similar to Cellular Phone Service with great emphasis on personal services (such as Paging, Caller ID, and E-mail) and mobility PCS can be defined in a broader sense as a set of capabilities that allows some combination of personal mobility and service management. Originated in UK, to improve its competitiveness in the field
  42. 42. PCS  PCS has smaller Cell size, therefore, requires more infra-structure  PCS works in 1.85-1.99 GHz band  PCS usesTDMATechnology but with 200 KHz Channel Bandwidth with eight time-slots[as compared to 30 KHz and 3 time-slots used by Digital Cellular Phone System IS-54/IS-136] Several PCS systems have been developed to meet rapid growth prompted by market demand. Most of them are connected to Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) to integrate with the wired service. Two of the most popular PCS systems are: Cellular telephony Cordless and low-tier PCS telephony
  43. 43. Personal communications services (PCSs)  PCS/PCN:  PCS calls for more personalized services whereas PCN refers to Wireless Networking Concept- any person, anywhere, anytime can make a call using PC.  PCS and PCN terms are sometime used interchangeably. In Europe, the term "personal communication networks (PCNs)" is used instead of PCS.  Form objectives for third-generation wireless  PCS handsets low power, small and light  Provide a limited range & mobility within Urban Centers

  45. 45. 2.5 G Mobile Systems • The move into the 2.5G world will begin with General Packet Radio Service (GPRS). GPRS is a radio technology for GSM networks that adds packet- switching protocols with – shorter setup time for ISP connections, – and the possibility to charge by the amount of data sent, rather than connection time. • Packet switching is a technique whereby the information (voice or data) to be sent is broken up into packets, of at most a few Kbytes each, which are then routed by the network between different destinations based on addressing data within each packet.
  46. 46. 2.5 G • The next generation of data heading towards third generation and personal multimedia environments builds on GPRS and is known as Enhanced Data rate for GSM Evolution (EDGE). • 2.75G was the name given to the evolution of EDGE (Enhanced Data rates for GSM Evolution) or Enhanced GPRS (EGPRS). • EDGE allow GSM operators to use existing GSM radio bands to offer wireless multimedia IP-based services and applications at theoretical maximum speeds of 384 kbps with a bit-rate of 48 kbps per timeslot and up to 69.2 kbps per timeslot in good radio conditions.  Implementing EDGE will be relatively painless as it will require relatively small changes to network hardware and software as it uses the same TDMA frame structure, logic channel and 200 kHz carrier bandwidth as today's GSM networks.  As EDGE progresses to coexistence with 3G wideband -CDMA, data rates of up to ATM like speeds of 2 Mbps could be available.
  47. 47. General Packet Radio Service (GPRS)
  48. 48. Constraints with existing network… WHY GPRS? Data Rates too slow – about 9.6 kbps Connection setup time too long Inefficient resource utilization for bursty traffic Proves expensive for bursty traffic utilization No efficient method for packet transfers
  49. 49. GPRS  General Packet Radio Service:-Radio technology that adds packet-switching protocols  GPRS is a step towards 3G and is often referred to as 2.5G  GPRS support flexible data transmission rates than GSM as well as continuous connection to the network.  It works onTDMA & CDMA technology, depending upon the multiplexing used.  Short for General Packet Radio Service, a standard for wireless communications which runs at speeds up to 115 kilobits per second, compared with current GSM (Global System for Mobile Communications) systems’ 9.6 kilobits.
  50. 50. Cont…  GPRS, which supports a wide range of bandwidths, is an efficient use of limited bandwidth and is particularly suited for sending and receiving small bursts of data, such as e-mail andWeb browsing, as well as large volumes of data.  It consists of a packet wireless access network and an IP-based backbone. GPRS is designed to transmit small amounts of frequently sent data or large amounts of infrequently sent data.  GPRS has been seen as an evolution toward UMTS (Universal MobileTelecommunications Systems). Users can access IP services via GPRS/GSM networks.
  51. 51. Comparison of GSM & GPRS GSM GPRS Data Rates 9.6 Kbps 14.4 to 115.2 Kbps Modulation Technique GMSK (Gaussian Minimum Shift Keying) GMSK (Gaussian Minimum Shift Keying) Billing Duration of connection Amount of data transferred Type of Connection Circuit – Switched Technology Packet - Switched Technology
  52. 52. Benefits of GPRS  New Data Services  High Speed (Data Rate 14.4 – 115 kbps)  Efficient use of radio bandwidth  Circuit switching & Packet Switching can be used in parallel  Constant connectivity
  53. 53. General Packet Radio Service (GPRS) SGSN: A Serving GPRS Support Node is responsible for the delivery of data packets from and to the mobile stations within its geographical service area. GGSN : Gateway GPRS Support Node is responsible for the interworking between the GPRS network and external packet switched networks, like the Internet and X.25 networks.
  54. 54. ARCHITECTURE GPRS services include both point-to-point and point-to-multipoint communications GPRS Architecture is same as GSM except few hardware modifications :  GPRS includes GSNs  SGSN : Serving GPRS Support Node  GGSN : Gateway GPRS Support Node  GPRS Register
  55. 55. SGSN(Serving GPRS Support Node)  Delivers data packets to mobile stations & vice-versa  Detect and Register new GPRS MS in its serving area  Packet Routing, Transfer & Mobility Management  Authentication, Maintaining user profiles  Its location register stores location info. & user profiles
  56. 56. GGSN – Gateway GPRS Support Node  Interfaces GPRS backbone network & external packet data networks.  The Gateway GPRS Support Node is the ―last port of call‖ in the GPRS network before a connection between an ISP or corporate network’s router occurs.  The GGSN is basically a gateway, router and firewall rolled into one.
  57. 57. GPRS in INDIA  BPL Mobile  Bharti Cellular  Hutchison Max  Hutchison Essar  Idea Cellular
  58. 58. GPRS characteristics GPRS uses packet switched resource allocation • resources allocated only when data is to be sent/received • Flexible channel allocation • one to eight time slots • available resources shared by active users • up and down link channels reserved separately • GPRS and circuit switched GSM services can use same time slots alternatively Traffic characteristics suitable for GPRS • Intermittent, bursty data transmissions • Frequent transmissions of small volumes of data • Infrequent transmission of larger volumes of data
  59. 59. Enhanced Data rates for GSM Evolution (EDGE)
  60. 60. (Enhanced Data rates for GSM Evolution )  Referred as Enhanced GPRS or EGPRS  Inherits all features from GSM and GPRS.  Only difference is instead of binary (Gaussian minimum-shift keying)GMSK , it uses 8-PSK modulation (Phase-shift keying ) which triple the capacity compared to GSM.  EDGE is considered a pre-3G radio technology  EDGE requires no hardware or software changes to be made in GSM core networks. EDGE-compatible transceiver units must be installed and the base station subsystem needs to be upgraded to support EDGE.  8-PSK is more susceptible to errors than GMSK, thus have 9 different modulation and coding schemes, each designed for different quality control.
  61. 61. Third Generation (3G) 3G or 3rd generation mobile telecommunications is a generation of standards for mobile phones and mobile Telecommunication services fulfilling the International Mobile Telecommunications-2000 (IMT- 2000) specifications by the International Telecommunication Union .  Application services include wide-area wireless voice telephone, mobile Internet access, video calls and mobile TV, all in a mobile environment.  3G: voice (circuit-switched) & data (packet-switched)  Third generation offers multi-media communication capabilities, at higher bit rates, with improved spectrum efficiency.  The EDGE standard is the development of GSM towards 3G.
  62. 62. Third Generation Technology (3G)  Digital system with multimedia services including video phone and relatively higher speed (say up to 1 Mbps) Internet access.  Permanent web connection upto 2Mbps  Internet, phone and media: 3 in 1  Wideband code division multiple access (W-CDMA) and UMTS are some of 3G standard.  The standard based on GSM is called UMTS.  Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS) is a third generation mobile cellular technology for networks based on the GSM standard.  3G has just been launched in India and is available on select mobile operators for select cities. But to access these services, a 3G compatible mobile phone is required.
  63. 63. 3G 3G used completely different radio frequencies from 2G, so it required different equipment to achieve the new high data transfer rates. Enormous costs of additional spectrum licensing fees delayed the introduction of 3G in many countries. 3G data transfer rates are 384kbits/s to 2Mbits/s, so it allows for previously unavailable services like video calls, video conferencing, online conference call, mobile TV, online gaming etc.
  64. 64. Universal Mobile Telecommunication System
  65. 65. (Universal Mobile Telecommunication System)  The Universal MobileTelecommunications System (UMTS) is commonly referred to as a third-generation system.  It was targeted to be deployed in 2002.  UMTS employs an ATM-based switching network architecture and aims to provide services for both mobile and fixed subscribers by common call-processing procedures.  Full packet driven architecture  For voice and for data transmissions.  Packet based networks allow for an increased amount of traffic on a medium.
  66. 66.  The UMTS architecture is split into 3 networks : 1. Core (switching) networks: o The core network is responsible for performing switching and transmission functions 2. Control (service) networks: o The control network supports roaming through the presence of mobility management functions 3. Radio Access networks. o provides channel access to mobile users and performs radio resource management and signalling UMTS will include both terrestrial and global satellite components. Universal Mobile Telecommunication System
  67. 67.  UMTS  Offers voice and data services the same as EDGE  Services offered will be classed into one of the following Conversational Streaming Interactive Background Real-Time Best-effort, guarantee of quality delivery Voice Streaming Video Web Pages MMS, SMS, emails UMTS (Universal Mobile Telecommunication System)
  68. 68. UMTS (Universal Mobile Telecommunication System)  3G is also known as UMTS (Universal Mobile Telecommunication System)  UMTS usesWideband-Code Division MultipleAccess (W-CDMA)  Also known as “IMT-2000 Direct Spread”  Modulation is done with Quadrature phase shift keying (QPSK)  This encodes 2 bits with each change  Supports two modes of operation  Frequency Division Duplex (FDD)  Time Division Duplex (TDD)
  69. 69. UMTS (Universal Mobile Telecommunication System)  The UMTS network comprises: (a) the mobile terminal, (b) the base transceiver station (BTS), (c) the cell site switch (CSS), (d) mobile service control points (MSCP), and (e) the UMTS mobility service (UMS). UMTS employs a hierarchical cell structure, with macrocells overlaying microcells and picocells. Highly mobile traffic is operated on the macrocells to reduce the number of handoffs required. UMTS aims to support roaming across different networks.
  70. 70. 3G UMTS  Types of Cells and Base station to use them  Macro Cell  These cover a large area and will give slow access  144 Kbps – max speed of 500 Km/h  Micro Cell  These should cover a medium area  384 Kbps max speed 120 Km/h  Pico Cell  Less than 100 metres  2 Mbps – max speed of 10 Km/h  Difficult to predict  Actual distances and bandwidth depend on local conditions

  76. 76. Cont…  UMTS is also designed to offer data rate on-demand.  The network will react to a user's needs, based on his/her profile and current resource availability in the network. UMTS supports the virtual home environment (VHE) concept, where a personal mobile user will continue to experience a consistent set of services even if he/she roams from his/her home network to other UMTS operators.  VHE supports a consistent working environment regardless of a user's location or mode of access.  UMTS will also support adaptation of requirements due to different data rate availability under different environments, so that users can continue to use their communication services.
  77. 77. Fourth Generation  The next step in wireless communications.  A 4G system will be able to provide a comprehensive IP solution where voice, data and streamed multimedia can be given to users on an "Anytime, Anywhere" basis, and at higher data rates than previous generations.  4G mobile phones are all set to provide data transfer rates of 100Mbit/s to 1Gbit/s, Digital system with voice over-IP (VOIP) technology. That is, the services are integrated into all IP network.
  78. 78. What is 4G? • Fourth Generation Technology – Faster and more reliable – 100 Mb/s – Lower cost than previous generations – Multi-standard wireless system – Bluetooth, Wired, Wireless – Ad Hoc Networking – IPv6 Core – OFDM used instead of CDMA – Potentially IEEE standard 802.11n – Most information is proprietary
  79. 79. Fourth Generation Technology One of the main ways in which 4G differed technologically from 3G was in its elimination of circuit switching, instead employing an all-IP network. 4G ushered in a treatment of voice calls just like any other type of streaming audio media, utilizing packet switching over internet, LAN or WAN networks via VoIP.

Wireless Personal Area Networks (Wireless PANs). – Enable users to establish ad hoc, wireless communication among personal wireless devices such as PDAs, cellular phones, or laptops that are used within a personal operating space, typically up to a 10 meter range. – Two key Wireless PAN technologies are • Bluetooth : is a cable-replacement technology that uses radio waves to transmit data to a distance of up to 9–10 m, • Infrared: connect devices within a 1 m range. 88Chandra Prakash, LPU
  83. 83. IEEE 802 Networking Standard
  84. 84. IEEE 802 Networking Standard • we need to have set of rules/standards for the data to travel from one computer to other computer. • Its developed by IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.) • The number 802 was simply the next free number IEEE could assign, though ―802‖ is sometimes associated with the date the first meeting was held — February 1980. • The standards such as IEEE 802 helps industry provide advantages such as, interoperability, low product cost, and easy to manage standards. • IEEE standards deal with only Local Area Networks (LAN) and Metropolitan Area Networks (MAN).
  85. 85. IEEE 802 Networking Standard
  86. 86. IEEE 802.11 • IEEE 802.11 is a set of standards for implementing wireless local area network (WLAN) computer communication in the 2.4, 3.6 and 5 GHz frequency bands. They are created and maintained by the IEEE LAN/MAN Standards Committee (IEEE 802) • 802.11 specifies an over-the-air interface between a wireless client and a base station or between two wireless clients. The IEEE accepted the specification in 1997.
  87. 87. IEEE 802.11 There are several specifications in the 802.11 family: • 802.11 — applies to wireless LANs and provides 1 or 2 Mbps transmission in the 2.4 GHz band using either frequency hopping spread spectrum (FHSS) or direct sequence spread spectrum (DSSS). • 802.11a — an extension to 802.11 that applies to wireless LANs and provides up to 54-Mbps in the 5GHz band. 802.11a uses an orthogonal frequency division multiplexing encoding scheme rather than FHSS or DSSS. • 802.11b (also referred to as 802.11 High Rate or Wi-Fi) — created a standard of wireless LAN operations in 2.4 GHz industrial, scientific and medical (ISM) Band , which is freely available for use throughout the world. This standard known as Wi-Fi (Wireless-Fidelity).It can offer data rates of up-to 11 MBPS.
  88. 88. • 802.11e — a wireless draft standard that defines the Quality of Service (QoS) support for LANs, and is an enhancement to the 802.11a and 802.11b wireless LAN (WLAN) specifications. 802.11e adds QoS features and multimedia support to the existing IEEE 802.11b and IEEE 802.11a wireless standards, while maintaining full backward compatibility with these standards. • 802.11g — applies to wireless LANs and is used for transmission over short distances at up to 54-Mbps in the 2.4 GHz bands. • 802.11n — 802.11n builds upon previous 802.11 standards by adding multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO). The real speed would be 100 Mbit/s (even 250 Mbit/s in PHY level), and so up to 4-5 times faster than 802.11g. • 802.1X — Not to be confused with 802.11x (which is the term used to describe the family of 802.11 standards) 802.1X is an IEEE standard for port-based Network Access Control that allows network administrators to restricted use of IEEE 802 LAN service access points to secure communication between authenticated and authorized devices.
