History

Cellular: A type of wireless communication that is most familiar to mobile phones users. It's called 'cellular' because the system uses many base stations to divide a service area into multiple 'cells'. Cellular calls are transferred from base station to base station as a user travels from cell to cell. (Bellis)


The first model l.jpg
The First Model

  • First concept introduced in 1947

  • Incorporated technology from car phones

  • Purely theoretical

  • No technology existed to support it


The fcc l.jpg
The FCC

  • The Federal Communications Committee

  • Queried by AT&T for allocation of radio frequencies

  • Supposed to motivate research

  • Suggested business profit capability

  • Granted limited amount


The problem l.jpg
The Problem

  • The FCC was too wary of the new technology

  • Only allocated enough to sustain 23 conversations in one cell area

  • Not suitable for large profit

  • Inhibited research and progress


Slide6 l.jpg
1968

  • FCC reconsiders

  • “if the technology to build a better mobile service works, we will increase the frequencies allocation, freeing the airwaves for more mobile phones”. (Bellis)

  • AT&T and Bell Labs propose theories

  • Still no existing technology


Dr martin cooper l.jpg
Dr. Martin Cooper

  • Researcher for Motorola

  • Credited with inventing the first cellular phone

  • 1973 made the first call to rival Joel Engel, Head Researcher from Bell Labs

  • Motorola first to use cell technology without the use of an automobile

AT&T Follows Suit

  • 1977 introduced their own patent

  • 1978 tested in Chicago with a trial of over 2,000



How it works l.jpg
How it works

  • They operate between cells and switch cells as a person moves around.

  • When you make a call on your cell phone, it is wirelessly linked to the telephone network via these towers so your call can be connected.


Towers l.jpg
Towers

  • Each tower, or base station, covers a roughly circular area called a cell

  • This allows different base stations to use the same frequencies, or channels, for communication links as long as a sufficient distance separates them. This is known as frequency re-use, and allows thousands or even hundreds of thousands of mobile telephone users in a metropolitan area to share far fewer channels


Making a call l.jpg
Making a call

  • Transmits the number along with a request for service signal.

  • It then transmits this information on the strongest reverse control channel where the MTSO checks the information and assigns it to a voice channel.

  • The cell site will then open a voice channel and transmit a SAT which is then locked onto the mobile and transmitted back to the cell site.

  • The info is then confirmed and sends a mobile message as either a busy signal or a ringback.


3 generations of mobile technology l.jpg
3 generations of mobile technology:

  • Analog

  • Digital

  • Smart phones


Slide14 l.jpg

Analog System

  • The first generation of mobile technology is the analog cellular system

  • Increase in the number of available channels

  • The cell-phone carrier receives about 800frequencies to use across a city.

  • The carrier chops up the city into cells, each cell is about 10 square miles and are on a giant hexagon grid.


Cell grid l.jpg
Cell Grid

  • Each cell consists of a base tower through which signals are sent and received.

  • Each cell uses 1/7 of the available channels so its frequency is unique and the signals don’t collide.


2g digital transmission l.jpg
2G Digital Transmission

  • Increase in the number of available channels within a given bandwidth.

  • It compresses your voice into binary information which allows 3-10 digital phones to occupy the space of one single analog call.

  • Frequency shift keying sends data back and forth over AMPS using 2 alternate frequencies,1s and 0s, alternating rapidly between the two to send digital information between the cell tower and the phone.

  • They have a lot of processing power.


Sharing technologies 2g 3g l.jpg
Sharing technologies 2G & 3G

  • Frequency division multiple access (FDMA)

    • Puts each call on a separate frequency.

  • Time division multiple access (TDMA)

    • Assigns each call a certain amount of time on its designated frequency.

  • Code division multiple access (CDMA)

    • Gives each call it’s own unique code and spreads it over the available frequencies

3g smart phones l.jpg
3G Smart phones

  • Intended for true multimedia use- referred to as smart phones

  • Smart phones are intended to allow you to use other programs on the phone that you couldn’t use with a standard phone.

  • Increased bandwidth and has transfer rates to accommodate the internet.

  • It contains many cellular technologies but the 3 most common are: Code Division Multiple Access, Wideband Code Division Multiple Access, and Time-division Synchronous Code-division Multiple Access.

Taking it apart

  • Circuit board – brains of the phone

  • Antenna

  • Liquid Crystal Display (LCD)

  • Keyboard

  • Microphone

  • Speaker

  • Battery


Circuit board l.jpg
Circuit board

  • Contains an analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog conversion chip which translates the outgoing audio signal from analog to digital and the incoming signal from digital back to analog.

LCD, keypad, and other parts

  • Speaker, microphone and battery backups

  • Thinner, lighter, use less battery power than other displays


Microprocessor flash memory l.jpg
Microprocessor & Flash memory

  • The microprocessor deals with command and control signaling with the base station. It also coordinates the functions of the keyboard and display.

  • The flash memory and ROM chips provide storage for the operating system and customizable phone features.

  • Some phones use internal memory to store info while others use the external memory card.
