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.

Broadcast technology Embedded Design principles Distribution Mlutiframe. As the traffic multiframes are 26 bursts long and the control multiframes are 51 bursts long, the different number of traffic and control multiframes within the superframe, brings them back into line again taking exactly the same interval.

The downlink and uplink channels are staggered in order to give the mobile time to process the received message and formulate a response. The whole data space bits is used for multifrane carrier pure sinusoid or carrier modulated with all zero bits. One thing worth noticing would be the first slot in each frame seems to be used as some control channel. GSM Frame Structure – GSM frame structure uses slots, frames, multiframes, superframes and hyperframes to give the required structure and timing to the data transmitted.

Build More-Effective Smart Devices: This comprises the eight slots, each used for different users within the TDMA system. 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. You would have seen this kind of diagram from various sources. The frame structure used for control channels is considerably more multifrake than the frame structure used for the traffic channels.

This structure may be transmitted on any timeslot. As mentioned in another page of the tutorial, the slots for transmission and reception for a given mobile are offset in time so that the mobile does not transmit and receive at the same time.

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.


GSM Frame Structure | Multiframe Superframe Hyperframe |

This tutorial section on GSM basics covers following sub topics: In almost every wireless communication, we use various kind of channel types. One of the main reason for this confusion is muptiframe even a single cycle of a whole structure requires so many slots and frames, it is really hard to visualize the whole frame structure on a limited space of a sheet of paper or on a white board.

At the center of the frame traffic channel multiframe gsn.

This diagram shows that a single GSM frame is composed of 8 time slots. The first time-slot Slot-0 of the base-frequency TDMA is used as the base-control channel or beacon channel.

Now each RF carrier will have eight time slots. As one carrier is used as guard channel between GSM and other frequency bands carriers are useful RF channels. In this example, the two users mkltiframe the slot 2 of mulltiframe frame in alternating fashion.

You will discover why mobile telephone service providers have upgraded from 1st generation analog systems to more efficient and feature rich 2nd generation GSM systems. This is like normal burst but has no meaning of its payload bits. By establishing these schedules by the use of a frame structure, both the mobile and the base bsm are able to communicate not only the voice data, but also signalling information without the various types of data becoming intermixed and both ends of the transmission knowing exactly what types of information are being transmitted.

At the last frame is 1 idle frame. Examples shown above was a kind of simplified illustration for isolated channels e. As shown in the figure 2 below, there are two varients to multiframe structure. The GSM allows a cell radius up to of 35 km.

One of those frequency channels is defined as the base-frequency beacon frequency or BCCH frequency. Multiframes used in the GSM system include the 26 traffic multiframe, 51 control multiframe, superframe, and hyperframe.

Accordingly the channel structure is organised into two different types of frame, one for the traffic on the main traffic carrier frequency, and the other for the control on the beacon frequency. They should also understand mapping of different channels to time slots in these gsm frame structures. A typical use of this type of control channel timeslot is in rural areas, where the subscriber density is low. During voice communication, one user is typically assigned to each time slot within a frame.


Following is the common example of a Traffic Multiframe.

Introduction to GSM, 2nd ed. Eight of these burst periods are grouped into what is known as a TDMA frame. GSM multiframe The GSM frames are grouped together to form multiframes and in this way it multuframe possible to establish a time schedule for their operation and the network can be synchronised. This is explained below in TDMA gsm frame structure.

GSM Frame Structure

Engineers working in GSM should know gsm frame structure for both the downlink as well as uplink. The illustration below is for Downlink multiframe structure.

As mentioned TS0 is allocated which follows either 51 or 26 frame multiframe structure. Do this questions and answer by yourself whenever you have chance until your brain automatically muliframe up a frame structure diagram as soon as you see some key words related to GSM frame.

As I keep telling you, the overall GSM frame structure one cycle is so long in time domain and I haven’t see any material showing even a single multiframe at the full details of each slot. In this diagram, the second slot in each frame is being used mutliframe a control channel but it is not always the case.

When gwm radio channel is used to provide a control channel, time slot 0 and the other time slots are used for traffic channels. The diagram below shows the frame structure used to accommodate eight SDCCHs, although, as it takes two repetitions of the multiframe to complete the entire sequence, it may be more logical multifdame think of it as a frame structure. Following is the common example of a Traffic Multiframe. Following is one example showing a control multiframe.

The 12th frame no.
