You have to understand at least the structure of slot, frame, multiframe (Do you remember where the multiframe is located in overall GSM frame structure?. This page on GSM tutorial covers GSM frame structure including concept of slot, frame,multiframe,superframe and hyperframe. It covers both 51 frame multiframe . Global System for Mobile (GSM) Several providers can setup mobile networks following the GSM .. Control Channel Multiframe (Reverse link for TS0). 0. F. 1.

GSM Timeslot & Frequency Specifications

As you see, the minimum unit is a slot and 8 slots slot 0 to 7 makes one step bigger unit called a frame. The basic element in the GSM frame structure is the frame itself.

As we can see in the diagram below, each of the control channel types are present on a single timeslot. A GSM frame is 4. That is the flag is 0 for TCH and 1 for others.

The idle time period allows a mobile device to perform other necessary operations such as monitoring the radio signal strength level of a beacon channel from other cells. Structure of Each types of Burst. Above this superframes i. Do you remember where the multiframe is located in overall GSM frame structure?

As one carrier is used as guard channel between GSM and other frequency bands carriers are useful Mulriframe channels.

GSM Frame Structure

The use of the superframe time period allows all mobile devices to scan multifra,e the different time frame types at least once. In reality, all of those scheduling are combined to form a very complex table as shown in the following example.


Accordingly the channel structure is organised into two different types of frame, one for the traffic on the main traffic carrier frequency, and the other for the control on the beacon frequency. Following is the most basic scheduling for fundamental channels. You will discover why mobile telephone service providers have upgraded from 1st generation analog systems to more efficient and feature rich 2nd generation GSM systems. As the traffic multiframes are 26 bursts long and the control multiframes are 51 bursts long, the different number of traffic and control multiframes within the superframe, brings them back into line again taking exactly the same interval.

In this example, the two users shares the slot 2 of every frame in alternating fashion.

A typical use of this type of control channel timeslot is in rural areas, where the subscriber density is low. The FACCH channel uses this burst during handover operation when the timing advance of new cell is not yet known. This figure shows the different types of GSM frame and multiframe structures. The GSM frame structure is designated as hyperframe, superframe, multiframe and frame.

The GSM allows a cell radius up to of 35 km.

Do you remember where the multiframe is located in overall GSM frame structure? This is used to maintain synchronisation of the different scheduled operations with the GSM frame structure. Introduction to GSM, 2nd ed. The first time-slot Slot-0 of the base-frequency TDMA is used as the base-control channel or beacon channel.

You would have seen this kind of diagram from various sources. In GSM as well, we have many different types of physical and logical channels and each of these channel multifrrame are using its own physical structure at the multifrake of a slot Burst. Control Multiframe Structures – The 51 control multiframe structure is used to send information on the control channel.

Every time slot during a hyperframe has a sequential number represented by an 11 bit counter that is composed of a frame number and a multifrmae slot number.

Superframes are the composition of 26 control multiframes or 51 traffic multiframes to provide a common time period of 6. This lasts for approximately 4.

One user uses the slot 2 at every frame and the other user use the slot 4 at every frame. Wednesday, 2 April Structure of Multi-Frame.
