similar to AMPS. It was first used in the United Kingdom in 1985, although
in Japan it is called JTAC. It operates in the 900 MHz frequency range.
Digital Cellular Technologies
A1-Net Austrian Name for GSM 900 networks
B-CDMA Broadband CDMA. Now known as W-CDMA (see below). To be used
in UMTS.
Bluetooth The technology enables short-range communication networks
between consumer devices incorporating a Bluetooth interface, and
is set to greatly improve the way consumers access data and
services wirelessly.
Composite Wireless technology that uses both CDMA and TDMA. For large-cell
CDMA/TDMA licensed band and small-cell unlicensed band applications. Uses
CDMA between cells and TDMA within cells. Based on Omnipoint
CDMA Code Division Multiple Access. There are now a number of
variations of CDMA, in addition to the original Qualcomm-invented
N-CDMA (originally just 'CDMA', also known in the US as IS-95.
See N-CDMA below). Latest variations are B-CDMA, W-CDMA and
composite CDMA/TDMA. Developed originally by Qualcomm, CDMA
is characterized by high capacity and small cell radius, employing
spread-spectrum technology and a special coding scheme. It was
adopted by the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) in
1993. The first CDMA-based networks are now operational. BCDMA is the basis for 3G UMTS (see below).
cdmaOne First Generation Narrowband CDMA (IS-95). See above.
cdma2000 The new second-generation CDMA MoU spec for inclusion in IMT2000.
It consists of various iterations, inclusing 1xEV, 1XEV-DO, and MC
cdma2000 1xEV (Evolution) is an enhancement of the cdma2000 standard of
1XEV the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA). The CDMA
1xEV specification was developed by the Third Generation
Partnership Project 2 (3GPP2), a partnership consisting of five
telecommunications standards bodies: CWTS in China, ARIB and
TTC in Japan, TTA in Korea, and TIA in North America. The 1xEV
specification is known as TIA/EIA/IS-856 "CDMA2000 High Rate
Packet Data Air Interface Specification." It promises around 300
kbps speeds on a 1.25Mhz channel.
cdma2000 1xEV-DO or data-only is an enhancement of the cdma2000 1X
1XEV-DO standard. It promises around 300 kbps speeds on a 1.25Mhz
CT-2 A second generation digital cordless telephone standard. CT2 has
40 carriers x 1 duplex bearer per carrier = 40 voice channels.
CT-3 A third generation digital cordless telephone, which is very similar
and a precursor to DECT.
CTS GSM Corldless Telephone System. In the home environment, GSMCTS phones communicate with a CTS Home Base Station (HBS),
which offers perfect indoor radio coverage. The CTS-HBS hooks up
to the fixed network and offers the best of the fixed and mobile
worlds: low cost and high quality from the Public Switched
Telephone Network (PSTN), services and mobility from the GSM.
D-AMPS Digital AMPS, a variation of AMPs. Uses 3-timeslot variation of
(IS-54) TDMA, also known as IS-54. An upgrade to the analogue AMPS.
Designed to address the problem of using existing channels more
efficiently, DAMPS (IS-54) employs the same 30 kHz channel
spacing and frequency bands (824-849 and 869-894 MHz) as
AMPS. By using TDMA instead of FDMA, IS-54 increases the
number of users from 1 to 3 per channel (up to 10 with enhanced
TDMA). An AMPS/D-AMPS infrastructure can support use of either
analogue AMPS phone or digital D-AMPS phones. This is because
the Federal Communications Commission mandated only that
digital cellular in the U.S. must act in a dual-mode capacity with
analogue. Both operate in the 800 MHz band.
DCS 1800 Digital Cordless Standard. Now known as GSM 1800. GSM operated
in the 1,800 MHz range. It is a different frequency version of GSM,
and (900 MHz) GSM phones cannot be used on DCS 1800 networks
unless they are dual band.
DECT Digital European Corldless Telephone. Uses 12-timeslot TDMA. This
started off as Ericsson's CT-3, but developed into ETSI's Digital
European Cordless Standard. It is intended to be a far more
flexible standard than the CT2 standard, in that it has more RF
channels (10 RF carriers x 12 duplex bearers per carrier = 120
duplex voice channels). It also has a better multimedia
performance since 32kbit/s bearers can be concatenated. Ericsson
has developed a dual GSM/DECT handset.
EDGE UWC-136, 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). It
will 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
E-Netz The German name for GSM 1800 networks.
Flash-OFDM Flash-OFDM (Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing) is a new
signal processing scheme from Lucent/Flarion that will support high
data rates at very low packet and delay losses, also known as
latencies, over a distributed all-IP wireless network. The lowlatency will enable real-time mobile interactive and multimedia
applications. It promises to deliver higher quality wireless service
and better cost effectiveness than current wireless data
FDMA Frequency Division Multiple Access
GERAN GERAN is a term used to describe a GSM and EDGE (Enhanced
Data rates for GSM Evolution) based 200 kHz radio access
network. The GERAN is based on GSM/EDGE Release 99, and
covers all new features for GSM Release 2000 and subsequent
releases, with full backward compatibility to previous releases.

digital standard, developed to establish cellular compatibility
throughout Europe. It's success has spread to all parts of the world
and over 80 GSM networks are now operational. It operates at 900
IDEN iDEN® (Integrated Digital Enhanced Network). Launched by
Motorola in 1994, this is a Private Mobile radio system from
Motorola's Land Mobile Products Sector (LMPS) iDEN technology,
currently available in the 800 MHz, 900 Mhz and 1.5 GHz bands. It
utilizes a variety of advanced technologies, including state-of-theart vocoders, M16QAM modulation and TDMA (Time Division
Multiple Access). It allows Commercial Mobile Radio Service
(CMRS) operators to maximize the dispatch capacity and provides
the flexibility to add optional services such as full-duplex telephone
interconnect, alphanumeric paging and data/fax communication

and characterized by high capacity and small cell radius. Has a
1.25Mhz spread spectrum air interface. It uses the same frequency
bands as AMPS and supports AMPS operation, employing spreadspectrum technology and a special coding scheme. It was adopted
by the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) in 1993. The
first CDMA-based networks are now operational.
