The feasibility and the performance of a wide set of innovative multimedia services within the near future evolution of GSM/EDGE mobile networks (GERAN) have been investigated in this paper. Packet Video Telephony (PVT), Push to Talk (PtT), Push to Watch (PtW) and Video Sharing (VS) have been considered. PVT, PtT and PtW have been analyzed within the GERAN packet switched domain, whilst VS has been considered as a component of a multi Radio Access Bearer (RAB) service requiring both a circuit…

Provision of Conversational Services over the GERAN: Technical Solution and Performance

The paper provides a description of the features which have been introduced to reduce the Round Trip Time (RTT) of the RLC protocol, namely: Reduced Transmission Time Interval (RTTI) radio blocks, a Fast Ack/Nack Reporting strategy and the R LC Non-Persistent mode operation.

Paving the path for high data rates by GERAN evolution EDGE2 with dual-carrier

The GERAN dual-carrier performance has been evaluated for EDGE and EDGE2-B both under ideal radio conditions and in regular hexagonal cellular deployments depending on system load, exemplifying FTP 500 kbyte download with 8 timeslots capable mobiles.



Introducing 3G like conversational services in GERAN packet data networks

Seamless conversational and multimedia services are feasible both in UMTS and - with some tolerable performance degradation - as well in GERAN packet switched data networks currently deployed in the field all over the world leading to an important convergence of 2G and 3G networks, services and solutions.

Adaptive source rate control for real‐time wireless video transmission

An adaptive source rate control (ASRC) scheme which can work together with the hybrid ARQ error control schemes to achieve efficient transmission of real-time video with low delay and high reliability is proposed.

Low bit-rate speech coders for multimedia communication

The attributes of speech coders such as bit rate, complexity, delay, and quality are described, which are applicable to low-bit-rate multimedia communications.


This work developed a real-time video communication system, Microsoft Portrait, which can run on PCs and Pocket PCs at local area networks, dialup networks and even wireless networks with bandwidths as low as 9.6 kilobits/second.
