White paper presentation on General Packet Radio Service

GPRS is expected to profoundly change the mobile data services that GSM, CDMA and TDMA
(ANSI-I36) network operators can offer. GPRS will increase opportunities for higher revenues
and enable new, differentiated services and tariff dimensions to be offered (such as a charge for
the number of kilobytes of data transferred). GPRS combines mobile access with Internet
protocol (IP)-based services, using packet data transmission that makes highly efficient use of
radio spectrum and enables high data speeds. It gives users increased bandwidth, making it
possible and cost-effective to remain constantly connected


GPRS (general packet radio service) is a packet-based data bearer service for wireless
communication services that is delivered as a network overlay for GSM, CDMA and TDMA (ANSII36)
networks. GPRS applies a packet radio principle to transfer user data packets in an efficient
way between GSM mobile stations and external packet data networks. Packet switching is where
data is split into packets that are transmitted separately and then reassembled at the receiving
end. GPRS supports the world’s leading packet-based Internet communication protocols, Internet
protocol (IP) and X.25, a protocol that is used mainly in Europe. GPRS enables any existing IP or
X.25 application to operate over a GSM cellular connection. Cellular networks with GPRS
capabilities are wireless extensions of the Internet and X.25 networks.
