GSM – Over the course of mobile communication technology’s development, various systems were created without adhering to a set of standardized specifications. The rise of digital radio technology brought about a multitude of problems regarding compatibility. The main goal of the GSM standard was to tackle the challenges mentioned earlier.


Global System for Mobile Communications or in short GSM is a mobile telephony standard. The operational parameters of cellular devices belonging to the second-generation classification, also known as 2G, are governed by an established standard. The introduction of GSM represented a critical turning point in the development of cellular networks as it signified a transition from the early phases of cellular technology, which relied on analog communication methods, to sophisticated wireless communication approaches.

Between 1982 and 1985, various deliberations took place to determine the most suitable approach to adopt either an analogue or digital system. After being subjected to various rounds of experimentation in the field, a digital-based technology was found to be appropriate for incorporation into the GSM infrastructure.

The next objective was to differentiate between a limited or all-encompassing solution. In May of 1987, the TDMA system was selected as the preferred technology due to its efficient use of narrowband capabilities. A thorough overview of significant accomplishments made in the progress of GSM technology is being showcased.

The 2G cellular telecommunications standard known as GSM has limited capabilities in providing high-speed data transmission in comparison to the more advanced 3G technology known as UMTS and the 4G cellular innovation known as LTE.

GSM – What It Does

The mobile utility services offer a wide range of functionalities including mobile top-up, balance check, call forwarding, call holding, notification for missed calls, and voicemail. They provide their customers with a variety of efficient tools and options to effectively handle their mobile services.


As in any scientific discipline, data is the most important fuel to ignite the whole idea and decide how far this business can go and what is required to be done. Scientists  / Analysts borrow techniques from related disciplines or developed their own arsenal, special techniques and algorithms to handle very large unstructured data sets in automated ways, even without human interactions.
