This paper summarizes different approaches to collecting road traffic information from second-generation cellular systems (GSM) and point out the possibilities that arise when third generation systems (UMTS) are used. Cell breathing is a potential problem, but smaller cells, soft handover and flexible measurements have the potential to increase the usage area and information quality when road traffic information is extracted from the UMTS network compared to using the GSM network
