The most successful mobile digital communications system in today’s world is GSM, with networks in over 130 countries and more than 100 million users worldwide. Back at the start of the 1980’s Europe was facing a big problem, there were many existing analogue mobile networks, which were based on similar standards, for example NMT 450, however they were all running on slightlydifferent carrier frequencies. To avoid this problem in the second generation mobile phone system, the Groupe Spéciale Mobile (GSM) was created in 1982.Now the system developed by this group is known as global system for mobile
communications (GSM).
