    It is now clear that the most successful digital cellular system at present is the European developed TDMA (time division multiple access) based, Global System for Mobiles (GSM) and its DCS-1800 and DCS-1900 derivatives to service European PCN and American PCS concepts, respectively. The GSM system has been designed to evolve, with current standardization work within ETSI addressing a new derivati... View full abstract»

    The major challenge for the CODIT (code division testbed) project is to design a concept that can support a range of new services with a bit range of up to 2 Mb/s. The concept must be flexible enough to meet the requirements of future services envisioned for UMTS. The required task of the project is to investigate a concept based on spread spectrum techniques. The system that is being developed in... View full abstract»

    The mobile broadband system (MBS) concept is basically to extend, to mobile users, access to the range of broadband services which will exist for fixed users. This implies the establishment of a universal system architecture, capable of cost effectively handling a wide range of equipment with diverse service attributes, in a wide range of applications, involving high data-rates and mobile terminal...
