Lucknow: Testing ground for 3G mobiles
BSNL is all set to launch 3G mobile in Lucknow. 3G mobiles would change the whole scenario of mobile communication in India. The services include locating, navigating and enhancing security, other than high-speed data transfer.
AN ANNOUNCEMENT by Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd (BSNL) to launch 3G mobile in Lucknow, exclusively, gave the people of this city enough reason to be happy. The chief general manager, of BSNL, UP east circle Om Vir Singh said that it’s going to be an exhaustive exercise and a litmus test to decide the fate of 3G mobiles in the country.
3G mobile communications is based on the International Tele-communication Union (ITU) family of standards under the International Mobile Telecommunications programmer, ‘IMT-2000’. 3G technologies enable network operators to offer users a wider range of more advanced services, while achieving greater network capacity through improved spectral efficiency. Services include wide-area wireless voice telephony and broadband wireless data, all in a mobile environment. Typically, these provide service at five to 10 MB per second.
A user might send video and picture messages or participate in a live videoconference. The most significant feature is that it supports greater amount of voice and data transfer, especially in urban areas and at low cost. It is a good sign of improvement in the quality, resolution and speed of data transfer and voice.
In Asia, Europe, Canada and the United States, telecommunication companies use WCDMA technology (Wideband Code-Division Multiple-Access) with the support of around 100 terminal designs to operate 3G mobile networks. 3G services were introduced and started in March 2003 in the UK and Italy.
The Lucknowites too are eager to use this much talked about technology. Lets hope that they would be able to use the revolutionary 3G mobile, soon.
