Q:

How is 3G different from 2G?

Answer

- Packet data speed is higher in 3G, and it is up to 384 KBPS
- Voice and sms speed is also 384 KBPS in 3G
- 2G utilizes different switching techniques for voice and data, where as  3G uses single switching, irrespective of data
- 3G has at least 2MB of data link of a mobile, where in 2G the data rate is in KBPS
- 3G has WiMAX facility for faster VOIP and internet
- 2G uses GSM TDMA technology with narrowband 200Khz.
- 3G uses CDMA technology with broadband 5Mhz, with same frequency carrier and time.

3G allows simultaneous use of speech and data services
3G provides peak data rates of at least 200 KBits according to the IMT-2000 specification.
Mobile broadband access of several MBits to laptop computer systems, smart phones is provided by latest 3.5G, 3.75G versions.

3G standards:

UMTS:

  -  Universal Mobile Telecommunications System – One of the 3G mobile telecommunications technologies, also being developed into a 4G technology.
  -  Most common form of UMTS uses W-CDMA as an underlying air interface.
  - UMTS also covers Radio Access Network – UMTS Terrestrial Radio Access Network (UTRAN), and Mobile Application Part (MAP).
  -  Users are authenticated via USIM cards (Universal Subscriber Identity Module).

CDMA2000

   -  Also known as IMT Multi-Carrier (IMT-MC), uses CDMA channel access for sending voice, data and signaling data between mobile phones and cell sites.
   -  The standards are CDMA2000 IX, CDMA2000 EV-DOR Rev.0, CDMA2000 EV-DO Rev.A and CDMA2000 EV-Rev.B. They are approved radio interfaces for the ITU’s IMT-2000.
