Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

In this paper we present a perspective on Beyond Third Generation (B3G) mobile communication considering past mobile evolution. In order to satisfy the requirements and expectations of the users to have more advanced wireless communication in mobile environments, this paper outlines the technical issues challenges & solutions involved in B3G mobile communications. We discuss the following technical challenges of B3G: wide coverage area with wide variety of services, high capacity and high rate transmission using multiple access techniques, cost reduction technologies and interconnection based on IP networking, necessity of broadband communications. We estimate and analyse the trend in uptake of mobile subscribers worldwide for 2G, 3G and B3G cellular systems considering the number of services provided based on wireless networks and frequency allocation to accommodate large number of users.
