 A mobile phone (also known as a wireless phone, cell phone, or cellular telephone) is a
short-range, electronic device used for mobile voice or data communication over a
network of specialised base stations known as cell sites. In addition to the standard voice
function of a mobile phone, telephone, current mobile phones may support many
additional services, and accessories, such as SMS for text messaging, email, packet
switching for access to the Internet, gaming, Bluetooth, infrared, camera with video
recorder and MMS for sending and receiving photos and video. Most current mobile
phones connect to a cellular network of base stations (cell sites), which is in turn
interconnected to the public switched telephone network (PSTN) (the exception is
satellite phones).

Cellular Systems:
 Mobile phones send and receive radio signals with any number of cell site base stations
fitted with microwave antennas. These sites are usually mounted on a tower, pole or
building, located throughout populated areas, then connected to a cabled

Key technologies:
 The key technologies used in cellular mobile radio include cellular frequency reuse,
analog cellular (1st generation), digital mobile radio (2nd generation), packet based
digital radio (2 ½ generation), and wideband radio (3rd generation).
 Even before 3G networks are fully launched and utilized, various study groups are
considering the shape of the next generation of cellular technology, so called 4G. There is
no single global vision for 4G as yet but the next generation of network is likely to be all
IP-based, offer data rates up to 100 Mbps and support true global mobility. One route
towards this vision is the convergence of technologies such as 3G cellular and Wireless

Frequency reuse:
 To conserve the limited amount of radio spectrum (maximum number of available radio
channels), the cellular system concept was developed. Cellular systems allow reuse of
the same channel frequencies many times within a geographic coverage area.
 1G: First Generation cellular - analog.

 2G: Second Generation cellular - digital cellular including TDMA, CDMA, and GSM
Most 2G digital phones are voice only phones, but some offer limited data capability.

 2.5G: Enhanced data rate Second Generation - digital cellular systems with data rates of
28kbps - 384kbps.

 3G: The term 3G refers to third generation wireless networks. These networks offer voice,
data transfer, and multimedia content at rates as high as 2 Mbps.

 GSM: Global System for Mobile communications. GSM is used all over Europe, plus many
countries in the Middle East, Asia, Africa, South America, Australia, and North America.
GSM's air interface is based on narrowband TDMA technology, where available frequency
bands are divided into time slots, with each user having access to one time slot at regular

 CDMA: Code Division Multiple Access; also known as IS-95. This is one of the newer
digital technologies in use in the US, Canada, Australia, and some southeastern Asian
countries (e.g. Hong Kong and South Korea). CDMA differs from GSM and TDMA by its use
of spread spectrum techniques for transmitting voice or data over the air. Rather than
dividing the radio frequency spectrum into separate user channels by frequency slices or
time slots, spread spectrum technology separates users by assigning them digital codes
within the same broad spectrum. Advantages of CDMA include higher user capacity and
immunity from interference by other signals. Used in either 800 MHz or 1900 MHz
frequency bands.
GSM was designed as a future proof standard, able to provide users with a range of
capabilities. The evolution began from 1982 when members of 11 telephone companies of the
European Telecommunications body - CEPT, formed a new standard group.

In 1988, after the signing of the GSM MoU by 17 countries the GSM work was transferred to
ETSI, a standards organization. Since then the membership of the GSM MoU has grown to 169
countries (401 Networks) across the World.

GSM is capable of operating at 3 frequency bands: 900MHz, 1800 MHz & 1900 MHz The last 2
are usually known as DCS1800 & PCS1900.

Bandwidth: 200kHz, time multiplexing over 8 slots with frequency hopping.

Voice Codec: 13 kbit/sec
Data bit rates: 9.6 kbits/sec
Short Message Service: 160 Characters maximum message length.
Requires a SIM Card.
• A broad offering of Voice & Data Services
• Compatibility with wire line networks
• Automatic Roaming & handover
• Highly efficient use of frequency spectrum
• Support for different type of mobile terminal equipments

Radio Subsystem Network & Switching Operating
Subsystem Subsystem

Base Station Subsystem AuC




Interfacing with external
networks (eg. PSTN) EIR
Comprises of the

- Mobile Station(MS)

- Subscriber Identity Module (SIM)

- Base Station Subsystem (BSS)

The term refers to the physical equipment of the user. Comprises of 2 parts -

• Hardware and software components relating to the radio interface.

• SIM Card

Each Mobile equipment has a 15 digit International Mobile Equipment Identity number
The SIM Card forms the second part of the MS. The subscriber related information is stored
in a non volatile memory of the SIM Card. The permanent data includes the-
• Mobile Station ISDN Number (MSISDN)
• SIM Type
• IC Card Identification - SIM Serial Number
• SIM Service table
• International Mobile Subscriber Identity Number (IMSI)
• Personal Identification Number (PIN)
• Pin Unlocking Key (PUK)
• Authentication Key (Ki)

Once the SIM Card is switched on the following dynamic data is updated -

• Location Information
• Ciphering Key for encoding
• List of Carrier frequencies for cell selection during handover and call setup
• List of blocked networks
• Home network search
Base Station Subsystem
The BSS comprises of all radio related functions of the GSM network. Because of the
limited transmitter power of the Base Transceiver Station (BTS), coverage is provided only
within a specific geographical area within the network. Thus radio cells are created & the
entire network id distributed into cells. Hence the name Cellular Communications was
Base Station Subsystem Comprises of the

- Base Transceiver Station (BTS)

- Base Station Controller (BSC)

The BTS comprises of the transmitting and receiving facilities, including antennas and all
the signaling related to the radio interface. Depending on the type of antenna, the BTS
supplies one or several cells. The antenna are separated from each other by an angle of
120 degrees.

The BSC is responsible for the management of the radio interface through the BTS,
namely for reservation and release of radio channels as well as handover management.
It also performs the tasks of Paging and signaling functions.

One BSC generally manages several BTS’s and is linked via the MSC.
Network and Switching Subsystem
Acts as a gateway between the radio network and other networks like the PSTN etc.

Comprises of the -

- Mobile Switching Center (MSC)

- Home Location Register (HLR)

- Visitor Location Register (VLR)

Mobile Switching Center

The MSC is a high performance digital switching center that carries out the normal
switching tasks and manages the network. Each MSC is usually allocated several BSCs,
and in the area assigned to it, carries out the switching between mobile users and other
PLMN. It also forms a link between the mobile radio network and the wire line networks.

The MSC is responsible for all the signaling required for setting up, terminating
and maintaining connections as per the CCSS7 standard (Roaming).
Home Location Register
The HLR is the store for all important information of each mobile subscriber. It stores all
information including

 Telephone Number
 IMEI Number
 Authentication Key
 Location area Identifier
 Equipment type
 Subscription basis
 Supplementary services

Each mobile subscriber & his related data are registered only once in the HLR, in which all
billing and administrative tasks are carried out. There is usually only one HLR in a

Visitor Location Register

The VLR manages the subscribers who are currently roaming in the area under control of
the MSC. It stores the information transmitted by the responsible HLR for users under its
area thus allowing the MSC to establish a connection.

The VLR is also responsible for the allocation of the MSRN & TIMSI. Location area
update and call setup functions are performed by the HLR & VLR. A special process keeps
the VLR updated of the mobile users movement within the MSC area or change of MSC.
The VLR avoids frequent interrogation of the HLR.
Operation Subsystem
The functions of the OSS are allocated into 3 areas of responsibilities.

- Subscription Management
- Network Operation and maintenance
- Mobile Equipment Management

OSS Comprises of -

- Operations and Maintenance Center (OMC - S & R)

- Authentication Center (AuC)
- Equipment Identity Register (EIR)
OSS - Subscription Management
Subscription management is able to authenticate a GSM user from the personal data
stored in the HLR and provide him the agreed services. This data provides the call
charging basis.

Subscriber Data is stored & managed in the HLR; information relating to data security in
the AuC.

Call Charging: The mobile radio user is charged for services on the basis of call-tickets.
These are used for billing irrespective of where the call is made in the network. Billing
location can be the MSC where the user is located or the Gateway MSC, where the
communication is connected to the external network. HLR stores only call related data.
Call billing is handled by the OSS Subscriber management. Tariff data is transmitted
between the MSC and the HLR over the signaling link.
The OMC centrally monitors & controls the network elements and ensures the best
possible service quality for a network.

The management functions of the OMC include administration of subscribers and

equipment, billing, generation of statistical data on state and capacity utilization of
network elements.

OMCS - Looks after the switch related operation & maintenance

OMCR - Looks after the radio network related operation & maintenance.

The AuC contains all the information required to protect the subscriber’s identity, his
mobile communication against eavesdropping and his right to use the radio services.

Authentication algorithms and encryption codes are stored in the AuC, and strict rules
apply for the access to this information.
Equipment Management - EIR
Management of mobile equipment concerns information about owner and equipment
identity. It also coordinates the movement of the equipment including roaming, handover
and paging.

EIR is a central database in which subscriber and equipment numbers are stored. The
database contains a white, grey and black list. The White list contains all the valid IMEI
numbers, the Black list contains the list of stolen or suspended IMEI numbers and the Grey
list contains the list of IMEI’s of malfunctioning equipment that is not receiving any
