The performance of turbo-equalized Global System of Mobile Communications/General Packet Radio Service (GSM/GPRS)-like videophone transceivers is studied over dispersive fading channels as a function of the number of turbo equalization iterations. Iteration gains up to 6 dB were attained. The operating channel signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) required for maintaining a peak SNR loss of less than 1 dB was reduced by 3.2 dB for the one-slot system and by 4.1 dB for the four-slot system. The proposed system is capable of providing low-resolution videophone services over GSM/GPRS.
