Personal communications services (PCS) is a set of capabilities that allows some combination of terminal mobility, personal mobility, and service profile management. In other words, PCS allows a person, by employing a unique personal number, to access telecommunications services anytime, anywhere, with the services controllable by the person himself or herself. PCS has been widely recognized as one of the most significant growth areas in telecommunications for the decade to come. This article summarizes the Directorate General of Telecommunications' (DGT) PCS development plan for Taiwan, Republic of China. Furthermore, PCS R&D activities in the Telecommunication Laboratories, a DGT research institute, are described in detail. Examples include the enhancement and evolution of cellular systems, intelligent networks for PCS, wireless access technology, field trials, propagation measurements and modeling, and RF technology
