The first cellular system developed was the Advanced Mobile Phone System (AMPS), classified as the First Generation (1G) mobile phone system, and was introduced in the late 1980s. The AMPS used analog communication systems to transmit only voice communications to others in different locations with limited capacity. (telecommunication 2008) The major problem faced by business individuals was the static and noise from using this type of communication system. It was practically impossible to conduct ordinary business over the analog networks. Such communications would also lead to inefficient and ineffective business practices. Individuals employed as Lawyers, Accountants, Doctors and other strict client confidentially positions were in the situation of possible eavesdroppers when communicating on such devices. The analog system had weak security system which could be easily hacked into by the use of scanners. This possibility of violating client confidentially would have lead to businesses not using such devices for normal business activity. Being able to conduct business any where any time was practically impossible with devices containing the analog networks. Movement Towards Digital Systems Following the pure analog systems (AMPS) was the development of the partially Digitial Advanced Mobile Phone Systems (D-AMPS) also known as the Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA). The digital transmission was sought Systems (D-AMPS) also known as the Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA)....
