Higher-generation mobile communication 2.5G, 3G, 4G . .... Goal - higher data rates, support multimedia. However, evolution to higher rates is not necessarily coming in discrete steps. Ref: IEEE Commun. Mag., April 2005, pp. 48- 56, other articles. Revision -peak data rates increased - 153 kb/s to 1.8 Mb/s. Ref. IEEE Commun. Mag., Feb. 2005, pp. 65- 125 on beyond 3G. Orthogonal frequency division multiplexing - something like the multiple channels of DSL. Ultra Wideband transmission

More up-to-date information in IEEE Communications magazine: May 2010 issue - broadband wireless services, starting on Page 86. August 2010 issue - 4G technology starting 0n Page 38. Complex schemes: -splitting stream of traffic into multiple channels - using feedback to select suitable channels - avoid interference - using error correction and retransmission schemes. A video channel requires the capacity of about 60 voice channels - much more demanding.

Some data can be broadcast to many receivers (multicast). One to one transmission is called unicast. Unicast and multicast signals may share communication facilities.

DSL versus Cable TV DSL - A dedicated private channel – about 256 kb/s upstream, 1+ mb/s downstream. Cable TV - can provide much higher capacity in both directions. - Must be shared - Not private. - Capacity varies with usage of others - Needs an access method as in mobile networks
