You have to understand at least the structure of slot, frame, multiframe (Do you remember where the multiframe is located in overall GSM frame structure?. This page on GSM tutorial covers GSM frame structure including concept of slot, frame,multiframe,superframe and hyperframe. It covers both 51 frame multiframe . Global System for Mobile (GSM) Several providers can setup mobile networks following the GSM .. Control Channel Multiframe (Reverse link for TS0). 0. F. 1.

Following illustration shows the time domain structure in slot level.

One thing worth noticing would be the first slot in each frame seems to be used as some control channel. Structure of Each types of Burst.

GSM Timeslot & Frequency Specifications

Don’t just look at these diagrams if you are GSM beginner, draw grids on a paper or open up a Excel spreadsheet and color and label it on your own. One GSM hyperframe composed of superframes. They should also understand mapping of different channels to time slots in these gsm frame structures. However, one common thing about all control channel frame structure is that it is based on 51 multiframe.

These mappings are summarized in a table in Quick Reference page. Following is the common example of a Traffic Multiframe. Why 26 and 51 Multiframes in GSM frame structure frame traffic frame control four repetitions of timeslot bursts traffic channel multiframe control channel multiframe type of control channel multiframe.


GSM Tutorial | Frame Structure

Following is the common example of a Traffic Multiframe. Following is one example showing a control multiframe. Each of those different channel tend to have its own physical or transport layer structure. When half rate is used, each frame of the frame traffic channel multiframe allocated for traffic will now carry two MS subscriber calls the data rate for each MS is halved over the air interface.

The idle time period allows a mobile device to perform other necessary operations such as monitoring the radio signal strength level of a beacon channel from other cells. Always occur multlframe beacon frequency in time slot 0, it may also take up other time slots if required by system for example 2,4,6. Each timeslot in a cell allocated to traffic channel usage will follow this format, that is, 12 bursts of traffic, 1 burst of SACCH, 12 bursts of traffic and 1 idle. Broadcast technology Embedded Design principles Distribution Formulae.

All the mulitframe frame are allocated for Traffic. Eight of these burst periods are grouped into what is known as a TDMA frame.

In this diagram, the second slot in each frame is being used as a control channel but it is not always the case. That is why the synchronization training sequence is very large for this burst comparing to other burst types.

Superframe – A superframe is a mmultiframe sequence that combines the period of a 51 multiframe with 26 multiframes 6.


This book explains the basic components, technologies used, and operation of GSM systems. This structure may be transmitted on any timeslot. Wednesday, 2 April Structure of Multi-Frame.

The diagram below shows the frame structure used to accommodate eight SDCCHs, multifrzme, as it takes two repetitions of the multiframe to complete the entire sequence, it may be more logical to think of it as a frame structure.

Let’s refresh our memory. By Andrew Morgan at April 02, This lasts for approximately 4. That is, an RACH message from an MS at a distance of up to 35 km from the base station can reach to the base station antenna without overlapping the next burst.

The GSM frame structure provides the basis for the various physical channels used within GSM, and accordingly it is at the heart of the overall system.

Multiframes are then constructed into superframes taking 6. Control Multiframe Structures – The 51 control multiframe structure is used to send information on the control channel. At the center of the frame traffic channel multiframe i. The illustration below is for Downlink multiframe structure. Mix of traffic and control channels depends multiiframe number of frequency channels per BTS that is the capacity of a cell and the traffic patterns.
