  16. 2. Mobile Communication

  17. Principles

  18. Mobile Communication Tied to electro-magnetic radio transmission radio transmission orbital (satellite) terrestrial broadcast radio equatorial orbit beam radio non-equatorial orbit cellular non-cellular • Principles: • Propagation and reception of electro-magnetic waves • Modulation methods and their properties • Multiplex methods • Satellite orbits/Sight- and overlap areas

  19. Cellular Networks: Principles Channels801-1600 3 4 2 1 4 2 1 5 2 1 5 7 6 Interference Zone 5 7 6 3 7 6 3 4 2 2 R 3 4 1 R 4 2 5 7 1 1 5 7 6 5R 5 7 6 3 4 6 3 4 2 4 2 1 5 Channels 1-800 Channels 1-800 7-Cell-Cluster (repeat sample of the same radio-channels) Supply- (radius R) and interference areas (5 R)

  20. Cellular Networks: Principles Cell structure: Example Reference cell Cell in the interference area of the reference cell Further cells, whose channel distribution should be known to the reference cell

  21. z x Kinds of antennas: directional & sectored • Energy is radiated in definite directions, for instance x-Direction • So called main propagation directions, for instance Satellite Antennas • Often also used in Mobile Radio Systems, such as GSM, for creation of sectored cells • Seamless radio supply via partial/overlay of sectors y x Directional Antenna Sectored Antenna

  22. Media Access Methods

  23. Principles • Multiplex • Multiple-shift usage of the medium without interference • 4 multiplex methods: • Space • Time • Frequency • Code • Media Access Methods • controls user access to medium

  24. SDMA (Space Division Multiple Access) • based on SDM (Space Division Multiplexing, Space Multiplex) • communication channel obtains definite Space for definite Time on the definite Frequency with definite Code • Space Multiplex for instance in the Analog Phone Systems (for each participant one line) and for Broadcasting Stations • Problem: secure distance (interferences) between transmitting stations is required (using one frequency) and by pure Space Multiplex each communication channel would require an own transmitting station • Space Multiplex is only reasonable in combination with other multiplex methods • SDMA for instance by base station dedication to an end-device via Media Access Methods or respectively by segmentation of a Mobile Radio Network to several areas

  25. SDMA: Example k1 k2 k3 k4 k5 k6 f1 s SDMA finds selection s – secure distance

  26. f k6 k5 k4 k3 k2 t k1 FDMA (Frequency Division Multiple Access) • Based on FDM (Frequency Division Multiplexing, Frequency Multiplex) • i.e. to transmission channels several frequencies are permanently assigned, for instance radio transmitting stations k1 k2 k3 k4 k5 k6 f1 f4 FDMA finds selection f2 f5 s f3 f6 s – secure distance

  27. f k1 k2 k3 k4 k5 k6 k1 t TDMA (Time Division Multiple Access) • Based on TDM (Time Division Multiplexing, Time Multiplex) • i.e. to transmission channels is the transmission medium is slot assigned for certain time, is often used in LANs • Synchronization (timing, static or dynamic) between transmitting and receiving stations is required k1 k2 k3 k4 k5 k6 TDMA finds selection f1

  29. CDMA (Code Division Multiple Access) • based on CDM (Code Division Multiplexing, Code multiplex) • i.e. to transmission channels the definite Code is assigned, this can be on the same Frequency for the same Time transmitted • derivates from military area • via development of cost-efficient VLSI components • via spread spectrum techniques a good communication security and tiny fault sensitivity • but: exact synchronization is required, code of transmitting station must be known to receiving station, complex receivers for signal separation are required • Noise should not be very high

  30. CDMA k1 k2 k3 k4 k5 k6 f1 CDMA decoded

  31. CDMA illustrated by example The Principle of CDMA can be good illustrated by the example of some party: • communication partners stand closely to each other, each transmission station (Sender) is only so loud, that it does not interfere to neighbored groups • transmission stations (Senders) use certain Codes (for instance, just other languages), they can be just separately received by other transmission stations • receiving station (Listener) attunes to this language (Code), all other Senders are realizing this only as background noise • if receiving station (Listener) cannot understand this language (Code), then it can just receive the data, but it cannot do anything with them • if two communication partners would like to have some secure communication line, then they should simply use a secret language (Code) • Potential Problems: • security distance is too tiny: interferences (i.e. Polish und Czech)

  32. CDMA-Example in the theory Sender A • Sends Ad =1, Key Ak = 010011 (set: „0“= -1, „1“= +1) • Transmit signal As =Ad *Ak = (-1, +1, -1, -1, +1, +1) Sender B • sends Bd =0, Key Bk = 110101 (set: „0“= -1, „1“= +1) • Transmit signal Bs =Bd *Bk = (-1, -1, +1, -1, +1, -1) Both signals superpose additively in air • Faults are ignored here (noises etc.) • C = As+ Bs =(-2,0,0,-2,+2,0) Receiver will listen to Sender A • uses Key Ak bitwise (internal product) • Ae = C * Ak =2 +0+0 +2 +2+0 = 6 • Result is greater than 0, so sent bit was „1“ • analog B • Be = C * Bk =-2 +0 +0 -2 -2 +0 = -6, also „0“

  33. Spread Spectrum Techniques • Signal is spread by the Sender before the transmission (overblown) • dP/df value corresponds with so called Power Density, Energy is constant (in the Figure: the filled areas) Objective: • Increase of robustness against small band-width faults • listening security: power density of spread-spectrum signals can be lower than that of background noise

  34. Spread Spectrum Techniques • small band-width faults are spread by de-spreading in receiving station • band-pass deletes redundant frequency parts t

  40. Broadcast/multicast networks • several carrier frequencies but participant obtains carrier for short time only • often in use by taxi- und logistics enterprises etc., each own separated frequency reaches • can use the same frequency packs with FDM- and TDM- techniques, i.e. more efficient handling with narrow resource frequency spectrum • improves transition to fixed network, speech- and data services • not for public access • very reliable, cost-efficient

  41. TETRA (Terrestrial Trunked Radio) • former name: Trans-European Trunked Radio • frequencies: 380-390, 410-420 MHz Uplink; 390-400, 420-430 MHz Downlink • bandwidth of each channel: 25 kHz • 1991 started by ETSI • replace of national networks like MODACOM, MOBITEX or COGNITO • Services: • Voice + Data (V+D)- Service: Speech and Data, channel-oriented, uni-, multi- and broadcast possible • Packet Data Optimized (PDO)- Service: packet-oriented, improves connection-oriented or connectionless service, as well as point-to-point and point-to-multipoint communication • carrier services with data rate up to 28,8 kbit/s unprotected; 9,6 kbit/s - protected

  42. TETRA, advantages compared with GSM, UMTS • confirmed and/or non-confirmed Group Call (however it’s already possible with GSM today: up to 16 participants) • Group call • listening is possible (so called “open-channel mode”) • very reliable • fast dialing: approx. 300 ms (so called “push to talk”), GSM: several seconds • certain independence of infrastructure (so called “direct mode” between end-devices) • cost-efficient, especially for limited user quantity, because of the „large“ cells x • 10 km • also especially suitable for emergency teams (fire department, ambulance etc.)

  43. Cordless Telephony - DECT (Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications) • frequency reach: 1880 - 1990 MHz • other than GSM limited to short reaches (1km) • in buildings particularly under 50m • is not designed for use at high rates • mobile phones with GSM and DECT are available in the market • 120 full duplex channels • TDD (Time Division Duplex) for directional separation with 10ms frame length • frequency reach is divided into 10 carrier frequencies using FDMA • each station 10mW averaged, max. 250mW of transmitting power, GSM – radio phones transmit at 1 to 2W, fixed car phones up to 8W
