Since 1988 - I have been designing and deploying custom internet solutions in Central Texas.  The installation of a signal booster and a long range Yagi antenna system with diplexer and amplifier, coupled with an array of tiny antennas that look like smoke detectors, is a winner.  I am licensed by the Federal Communications system in the 3G - 4G - 5G and future 6G frequency spectrum.  I charge $280.00 to come to your ranch in Central Texas and conduct a site survey and perform signal measurements.  If I am able to acquire -75dbm - from any point on your property, I can get you 50MB down and 5MB up to your WIFI network. I make your connection to cell towers and harness a reliable all weather high speed internet connection to your property.  If you want more information, please email: tech@clickanerd.com.  If you click on my face above, it will take you to my contact page.

GSM & CDMA

GSM stands for Global System for Mobile Communication and is now considered the standard for communication globally, particularly in Asia and Europe, with its availability in over 210 countries worldwide. It functions on four distinct frequency bands, 900 MHz and 1800 MHz in Europe and Asia, and 850 MHz and 1900 MHz in North and South America. The GSM Association is an international organization founded in 1987 with the goal of developing and overseeing the expansion of the GSM wireless standard.

GSM uses a variant of TDMA (time division multiple access) that divides the frequency bands into multiple channels. With GSM, our voice is transformed into digital data, which is given a channel and a time slot. On the other end, the receiver listens only to the assigned time slot, with the call pieced together. Obviously, this happens in a negligible amount of time, and the receiver doesn’t notice the “break,” or time division, that occurs.

CDMA, or code division multiple access, was a standard designed and patented by Qualcomm, but subsequently used as the basis for the CDMA2000 and WCDMA standards for 3G. However, because of its proprietary nature, CDMA hasn’t seen the global adoption that GSM has, with less than 18% of the networks around the world using CDMA, and is primarily found in the US.

CDMA networks layer digitalized calls over one another, assigning unique codes to differentiate between them. Every call data is encoded with a different key, and the calls are then transmitted at the same time. The receivers each have the unique key as well, to split the combined signal into its individual calls.
