In 2g systems, gprs provides data rates of 56–114 kbit/sec 2g cellular technology combined with gprs is sometimes described as 25g, that is, a technology between the second and third generations of mobile telephony.
Gprs is based on global system for mobile communication and complements existing services such circuit-switched cellular phone connections and the short message service in theory, gprs packet-based services cost users less than circuit-switched services since communication channels are being used on a shared-use, as-packets-are-needed basis rather than dedicated to only one user at a time.
Gprs gprs (general packet radio service) is a very widely-deployed wireless data service, available now with most gsm networks gprs offers throughput rates of up to 40 kbps, enabling mobile handsets to access online services at a similar speed to a dial-up modem, but with the convenience of being able to connect from almost anywhere. General packet radio service (gprs) is a packet oriented mobile data standard on the 2g and 3g cellular communication network's global system for mobile communications (gsm) gprs was established by european telecommunications standards institute (etsi) in response to the earlier cdpd and i-mode packet-switched cellular technologies.
Edge vs gprs edge or enhanced data rates for gsm evolution is a digital mobile phone technology attuned backwards this technology, also termed as enhanced gprs or enhanced data rates for global evolution or imt single carrier makes superior data transmission rates possible. Edge or enhanced data rates for gsm evolution is a digital mobile phone technology attuned backwards this technology, also termed as enhanced gprs or enhanced data rates for global evolution or imt single carrier makes superior data transmission rates possible this happens as an extension adding.
In addition to the internet protocol (ip), gprs supports x25, a packet-based protocol that is used mainly in europe gprs is an evolutionary step toward enhanced data gsm environment and universal mobile telephone service. Gprs technology became the first stepping-stone on the path between the second-generation gsm cellular technology and the 3g w-cdma / umts system with gprs technology offering data services with data rates up to a maximum of 172 kbps, facilities such as web browsing and other services requiring data transfer became possible.
Global systems for mobile communications or gsm is the standard bearer of the 2g technologies it is the most widely used technology in the world for mobile phone communications gprs is an upgrade over the basic features of gsm it allows mobile handsets to obtain much higher data speeds than what standard gsm can offer. Gsm (global system for mobile communications) is a standard developed by the european telecommunications standards institute (etsi) to describe the protocols for second-generation digital cellular networks used by mobile devices such as tablets.
