GSM Radio Access Networks

Increase capacity and improve the quality of service on your GSM networks

Launched in 1991, it is the most widely used technology covering over 90% of the global population today. In many parts of the world GSM is the only means of mobile communication, and will be for a long time to come. In other areas, GSM’s wide penetration and vast footprint provide umbrella coverage for 3G HSPA and LTE networks. GSM is a highly cost effective and spectrum efficient technology for voice traffic and small data transactions such as M2M (machine-to-machine) type communications. With a huge increase in the overall traffic, operators face the challenge of upgrading and optimizing network infrastructure while maintaining cost efficiency. These challenges can be addressed by re-farming GSM spectrum and implementing new GSM efficiency features for both voice and data. Further, with EC-GSM- IoT, operators will also be able to support and satisfy the connectivity profiles and requirements for Cellular IoT (Internet of Things), the next big thing.
