    Over the last few years, we have experienced a variety of access technologies being deployed. While 2G cellular systems evolve into 3G systems such as UMTS or cdma2000, providing worldwide coverage, wireless LAN solutions have been extensively deployed to provide hotspot high-bandwidth Internet access in airports, hotels, and conference centers. At the same time, fixed access such as DSL and cable... View full abstract»

    Now, when the first commercial 3G services based on Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) specifications have been launched around the world, is the right time to start considering the evolution potential of 3G systems. It is assumed that the majority of the traffic in future mobile networks will be generated by content consumption related services, which are realized with IP technologies. T... View full abstract»

    The third-generation mobile network has been a topic of considerable interest worldwide and has begun to be commercialized throughout the world. The 3G mobile network has evolved from two types of 2G networks; one type has evolved from GSM and another from ANSI-41. We operate the Personal Digital Cellular network as a 2G network and have designed a GSM-based IMT-2000 network as a 3G network. This ... View full abstract»

    The IMT-2000 third-generation network system has been operating in the Japanese market since May 2001. In order to provide value added phone services including CAMEL services, a layered call control architecture has been developed. This architecture could achieve smooth core network migration from 2G to 3G. This system provides MSC/VLR, SGSN, and GGSN functionalities based on ATM technology. View full abstract»

    In overlaying an existing cdma2000 network with a UMTS network, service transparency and number portability are important requirements for end users and hence the network operator. To support both requirements, one could introduce a protocol conversion node between the two networks; however, such a solution does not fully meet the requirements due to inherent technical constraints imposed by the d...

    Roaming for voice, the ability for a user to make and receive calls when visiting another country, is taken for granted by GSM users today. Currently GSM mobile operators are introducing packet-based data networks (also known as General Packet Radio Service) that bring a huge variety of services. However, this new network also introduces new complexity in the support of the packet-based roaming sc... View full abstract»
