Abstract:

The cellular telecommunications industry is one of the fastest growing segments in the international telecommunications domain. Many current communications systems will soon interface with cellular voice and data signals, and this interface will not be restricted to just vehicular cellular. In fact, cellular systems are now even replacing wireline telecommunications systems in certain applications. Todays communications managers and engineers should understand how cellular systems work, and how these systems might be put to work to solve communications requirements. The mobile, low-cost, tetherless characteristics of cellular systems make them ideal candidates for many military needs. This paper provides an overview of current cellular communications systems, and treats their history, theory and operation, applications, and limitations. Additionally, new experimental digital and micro-cellular systems will be introduced and described.
