3G Wireless Communication Systems

The first generation of cellular systems had a relatively short life; these systems survived for nearly ten years. These systems had many limitations and shortcomings. These systems were phased out quickly because of their antiquated technology, expensive hardware, and inadequate capacity. For example, the first generation cellular systems were designed for users in vehicles, rather than those outside. The high powered bulky transmitters were not conducive to portability. The cellular mobile radio systems removed the tie of telephones to buildings and replaced that with a leash to vehicles. The change still did not provide a truly ubiquitous communication, which had been the ultimate desire of users. Being analog, these systems were very inadequate for data transmission, which was seen as the major growth area in telecommunications.
