Packet Switching 1. GPRS involves overlaying a packet based air interface on the existing circuit switched GSM network. 2. In GPRS, the information is split into separate but related "packets" before being transmitted and reassembled at the receiving end Spectrum Efficiency 1. Packet switching means that GPRS radio resources are used only when users are actually sending or receiving data. Rather than dedicating a radio channel to a mobile data user for a fixed period of time, the available radio resource can be concurrently shared between several users. 2. This efficient use of scarce radio resources means that large numbers of GPRS users can potentially share the bandwidth and be served from a single cell. .
