Introduction to Data

Data Communications :

Data Communications is the transfer of data or information between a source and a receiver. The source transmits the data and the receiver receives it. The actual generation of the information is not part of Data Communications nor is the resulting action of the information at the receiver. Data Communication is interested in the transfer of data, the method of transfer and the preservation of the data during the transfer process.

In Local Area Networks, we are interested in "connectivity", connecting computers together to share resources. Even though the computers can have different disk operating systems, languages, cabling and locations, they still can communicate to one another and share resources.

The purpose of Data Communications is to provide the rules and regulations that allow computers with different disk operating systems, languages, cabling and locations to share resources. The rules and regulations are called protocols and standards in Data Communications.

Why Telecommunications?

What does networking have to do with telephones? Telephones and networking work hand in hand. The telecommunications industry has been gradually integrating with the computer industry and the computer industry has been gradually integrating with the telecommunications industry. The common goal is to join distantly located Local Area Networks into Metropolitan and Wide Area Networks (MANs and WANs).

Voice Channels :

First thing that comes to mind is telephone systems and the phone at home. Talking to someone on the phone uses Voice Channels. This doesn't seem to have much to do with Networks!

We do use voice channels for modem communications to connect to BBSs (Bulletin Board Services) or to connect to the Internet. We also use voice channels to connect LANs using remote access. Due to the bandwidth limits on the Voice Channel, the data transfer rate is relatively slow.

Voice Channel: Dial-up connection through a modem using standard telephone lines. Typical Voice Channel communication rates are: 300, 1200, 2400, 9600, 14.4k, 19.2k, 28.8k, 33.6k and 56 kbps (bits per second).

Data Channels :

Data channels are dedicated lines for communicating digitized voice and data. At the end of 1996, there was a major milestone where more data was communicated in North America's telecommunications system than voice.

Data Transmission conversion (kilobit):

In data communications, a kilobit is a thousand bits, or 1,000 (103) bits. It's commonly used for measuring the amount of data that is transferred in a second between two telecommunication points. Kilobits per second is usually shortened to Kbps.

Some sources define a kilobit to mean 1,024 (that is, 210) bits. Although the bit is a unit of the binary number system, bits in data communications are discrete signal pulses and have historically been counted using the decimal number system. For example, 28.8 kilobits per second (Kbps) is 28,800 bits per second. Because of computer architecture and memory address boundaries, bytes are always some multiple or exponent of two.

Binary code :

A binary code is a way of representing text or computer processor instructions by the use of the binary number system's two-binary digits 0 and 1.

This is accomplished by assigning a bit string to each particular symbol or instruction. For example, a binary string of eight binary digits (bits) can represent any of 256 possible values and can therefore correspond to a variety of different symbols, letters or instructions.

In computing and telecommunication, binary codes are used for any of a variety of methods of encoding data, such as character strings, into bit

strings. Those methods may be fixed-width or variable-width. In a fixed-width binary code, each letter, digit, or other character, is represented by a bit string of the same length; that bit string, interpreted as a binary number, is usually displayed in code tables in octal, decimal or hexadecimal notation. There are many character sets and many character encodings for them.

A bit string, interpreted as a binary number, can be translated into a decimal number. For example, the lowercase "a" as represented by the bit

string 01100001, can also be represented as the decimal number 97.

Byte :

The byte is a unit of digital information in computing and telecommunications that most commonly consists of eight bits. Historically, a byte was the number of bits used to encode a single character of text in a computer [1][2] and for this reason it is the basic addressable element in many computer architectures.

The size of the byte has historically been hardware dependent and no definitive standards exist that mandate the size. The de facto standard of eight bits is a convenient power of two permitting the values 0 through 255 for one byte. Many types of applications use variables representable in eight or fewer bits, and processor designers optimize for this common usage. The popularity of major commercial computing architectures have aided in the ubiquitous acceptance of the 8-bit size.

the list is endless. Every day we come across new technologies which bring newer experiences and enrich

Mobile telephony entered our lives like a revolution. It forever changed the way we communicated with others, how ‘connected’ we stay with the world and how a small device can become the most essential tool to survive in today’s world.

While all of us are dependent on this tiny device, how many of us are aware of the technology which drives this communication revolution? The launch of 3G services in India earlier this year, was much hyped about and people eagerly looked at upgrading from the good old GSM service to the promising new 3G. However, GSM is still the lifeline of mobile communication in India.

So what is GSM? Here is a quick sneak peek to the technology our lives revolve around

GSM

Emanating from the roots set by ‘walkie talkie’, the two way radio handsets by Motorola, Mobile Telephone service was first launched in St. Louis in 1946 via just three radio channels. Till 1973, this technology was limited to phones installed in cars and other vehicles. The advancement of technology resulted in first generation (1G) on mobile phones which used multiple cell sites and had the ability to transfer calls from one site to the next as the user travelled between cells during a conversation, paving the way to the mobile phone revolution!

First generation (1G)

The first commercially automated cellular network (the 1G generation) was launched in Japan by NTT in 1979. The base stations and the mobile phones utilized variable transmission power, which allowed range and cell size to vary. In 1G, Narrow band analogue wireless network is used; with this the user could do voice calls and send text messages.

Second generation (2G/GSM)

In the 1990s, the 'second generation' (2G) mobile phone systems emerged, primarily using the GSM standard.

GSM (Global System for Mobile Communications) is a standard set developed by the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) to decide technologies for 2G digital cellular networks. It is open, digital cellular technology used for transmitting mobile voice and data services.

2G (GSM) differed from the previous generation by using digital instead of analog transmission, and also fast out-of-band phone-to-network signaling, which brought more clarity to the conversation. In 1991, the first GSM network (Radiolinja) launched in Finland.

The second generation introduced a new variant of communication called SMS or text messaging (apart from 1G). It was initially available only on GSM networks but spread eventually on all digital networks. 2G also introduced the ability to access media content on mobile phones. The first full internet service on mobile phones was introduced by NTT DoCoMo in Japan in 1999.

How does GSM work?

GSM chose a combination of TDMA/FDMA as its method. The FDMA part involves the division by frequency of the total 25 MHz bandwidth into 124 carrier frequencies of 200 kHz bandwidth. One or more carrier frequencies are then assigned to each BS. Each of these carrier frequencies is then divided in time, using a TDMA scheme, into eight time slots. One time slot is used for transmission by the mobile and one for reception. They are separated in time so that the mobile unit does not receive and transmit at the same time. The channel data rate for all 8 channels is 270.833 kbit/s, and the frame duration is 4.615 ms. GSM operates at either the 900 MHz or 1800 MHz frequency band. Regardless of the frequency selected by an operator, it is divided into timeslots for individual phones to use.

GSM technology enables you to use your mobile phone with any connection in more than 212 countries of the world without switching to other network.

3G

In a world, where increasingly our smart phones have not only become the nodal device for communication and entertainment, but also define the way we connect to one another, carry out our daily business, organize our lives etc, there is a demand for technology which makes all this possible in a blink. So be it watching sports live on the go or sharing an important presentation instantly to the other corner of the world from a remote location, we want it all at our fingertips the advent of 3G has made all this possible.

– the advent of 3G has made all this possible. 3G refers to the third generation

3G refers to the third generation of mobile telephony technology. The International Telecommunications Union (ITU) defined the third generation (3G) of mobile telephony standards IMT-2000 to facilitate growth, increase bandwidth, and support more diverse applications. For example, GSM could deliver not only voice, but also data but at low speeds up to 14.4 Kbps. But to support mobile multimedia applications, 3G had to deliver packet-switched data with better spectral efficiency, at far greater speeds.

Often termed as game changer, 3G has paved way for instant social networking, video calling, high speed internet, mobile TV, live video streaming, mobile apps, HD gaming, e-commerce and many other related user experiences. 3G promises faster, smarter and better mobile experience than any other wireless technology.

What is 3G?

3G wireless technology represents the convergence of various 2G wireless telecommunications systems into a single global system that includes both terrestrial and satellite components. One of the most important aspects of 3G wireless technology is its ability to unify existing cellular standards, such as CDMA, GSM, and TDMA, under one umbrella. The following three air interface modes accomplish this result: wideband CDMA, CDMA2000 and the Universal Wireless Communication (UWC-136) interfaces.

To meet the IMT-2000 standards, a system was required to provide peak data rates of at least 200 kbit/s. Recent 3G releases like 3.5G and 3.75G also provide mobile broadband access of several Mbit/s to smartphones and mobile modems in laptop computers.

3G networks have potential transfer speeds of up to 3 Mbps (about 15 seconds to download a 3-minute MP3 song). For comparison, the fastest 2G phones can achieve up to 144Kbps (about 8 minutes to download a 3-minute song). 3G's high data rates are ideal for downloading information from the Internet and sending and receiving large, multimedia files. 3G phones are like mini-laptops and can accommodate broadband applications like video conferencing, receiving streaming video from the Web, sending and receiving faxes and instantly downloading e-mail messages with attachments.

3G in India

In India, 3G and BWA (broadband wireless access) licenses were auctioned through competitive bidding process in May 2010.
