It describes the key components, how they operate and the different types of wireless voice, data and information services they can provide.

You will learn the terminology terms and acronyms for mobile telephone systems along with the key technologies. Learn how speech compression voice coding operates and how it allows more than 10 times as many users to share a single communication channel. Discover the different types of system access technologies including FDMA, TDMA, CDMA and SDMA. Explained are the basic types of modulation technologies and how they are evolving to increase the data transmission rates with less available bandwidth. Find out why and how cellular systems are converting from dedicated circuit switched connections to high-speed packet data systems.

The key parts of mobile communication systems are described including mobile equipment, radio access network RAN and the core network CN. You will learn the basic operation of the base stations and how they may communicate with mobile switching systems MSC for voice communication or how they communicate with packet switching systems for data communication such as accessing the Internet. You will learn about the different types of mobile devices including multi-mode handsets, embedded communication devices, data-only cards and adapter boxes.

Learn the key types of 1st generate analog cellular systems including AMPS, TACS, NMT, MCS, CNET and MATS-E.
