Page 3 Wireless and Cellular Networks - History In 1905, Guglielmo Marconi invented the first Radio application for Naval requirements In 1912, with the drowning of the Titanic, Radio communications became essential In 1930, the First mobile transmitter was developed. First Simplex communications. 4. Page 4 Wireless and Cellular Networks - History In 1935, FM Frequency Modulation developed. Later used in WW2 by the US In 1942, a Patent for Frequency Hoping was registered by actress Hedy Lamarr and composer George Antheil. Later developed to CDMA. They called it Secret Communication System During the years 1946-1968, wireless communications developed for government services Police, Fire departments etc 5. Page 5 Wireless and Cellular Networks - History 1979 in Tokyo, Japan. Later in the early 80s in the US and Europe the first real mobile hone, including handoff. In the early-mid 80s, various technologies came, like WLL, LMDS, and Wireless LAN. In the mid-late 90s, development of 2.0G+ cellular networks, along with the emerging of wireless data networks. Since the early 2000s, fast cellular and wireless services, along with advanced, IP- Based services 6. Page 6 What do we have today ? Cellular technologies Started 1.0G, analog communications Today (2009), 3.5G moving to 4.0G (LTE and LTE-Advanced) technology Wireless technologies: Wireless LAN (WiFi), for urban areas, mostly private networks, moving to mobility Fixed WiMAX for high bandwidth, SP networks 7.

Page 8 Some Wireless Principles Radio Communications In wireless / mobile communications, the principle is to get the maximum capacity from the air, or what called the air interface. For this purpose, we use the following techniques: Frequency bands that we are allowed to use (Government Licenses) Modulation that carry the information over the radio waves Multiplexing that shared the air interface between different users. 9. Page 9 What is it All About? How much bps can we get from every Hz ??? (The Shannons Theorem) C = W * log2 (1 + S/N) Channel Capacity [Bits/sec] Signal Bandwidth [Hz] Signal to Noise Ratio [Number] Claude E. Shannon 10. Page 10 How it works The beginning Traditional mobile service was structured in a fashion similar to television broadcasting One very powerful transmitter located at the highest spot in an area would broadcast in a radius of up to 50Km. 11. Page 11 And Then . With one antenna limited cover and number of users Therefore split into many low power transmitters 12.

Page 25 The 2.0G Networks The critical problem in 1.0G was capacity. The main requirement was to increase it These requirements brought several new technologies: The general characteristics of Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM) CDMA - Code Division Multiple Access Promise to significantly increase the efficiency of cellular telephone systems to allow a greater number of simultaneous conversations. 26. Page 26 The GSM Network GSM, or Global System for Mobile Communications, is a second generation technology. The focus in GSM was to support roaming throughout Europe. An ETSI standard. In use all around the world. GSM is not only an air interface standard, but includes the entire network. Of the numerous individual standards that define an entire GSM network, only a small portion deal directly with the air interface. That air interface was standardized to be TDMA. 27.

Page 29 GPRS and EDGE for Early Data Applications The two key benefits of GPRS were: Better use of radio and network resources Completely transparent IP support GPRS optimises the use of network and radio resources. It uses radio resources only when there is data to be sent or received. GPRS have added two major components, that are still used in cellular data networks: GGSN (Gateway GPRS Support Node) {DHCP and FW} for filtering and firewall, Charge collections and PDN access SGSN (Serving GPRS Support Node) {Switch} for Authentication, Authorisation, Encryption, Compression, Mobility management, Charge collection, BSS interface EDGE was a Pre-3.0G network, that improved data-rate by better modulation techniques 30.
