Trunked Mobile Radio and Packet
In addition to the public radio telephone service and the paging service, there
are other radio services that are not accessible by the public. These radio
systems, called the non-public land mobile radio network , have access to fre-
quencies that cannot be used by the public but only by speciﬁc users or groups
Probably the best known non-public mobile radio service is analogue Pri-
vate Trunked Mobile Radio (PTMR), which has been used for many years by
large ﬁrms such as airlines, taxi and transport companies, the railways, and
ports, as well as by government departments and organizations responsible
for security. What is characteristic of previous PTMR systems is that they
have one radio channel that is used exclusively by all the mobile terminals
of a speciﬁc user group. An analysis of conventional commercial radio sys-
tems reveals a number of weaknesses that aﬀect both the customer and the
• Because of too many PTMR users, the ﬁxed allocation of radio channels
in congested areas leads to a frequency overload.
• Radio supply areas are too small.
• There is the possibility of eavesdropping by unauthorized persons.
• There is no link to the public telephone networks.
• There is limited support of voice and data transmission.
Frequency overload was the main reason for considering new radio systems
and infrastructures. This led to the introduction of trunked mobile radio
systems as the successors to analogue PTMR.
Although it is not possible for trunked mobile radio systems to expand the
frequency spectrum available, they are able to improve the quality of service
both for the end user and for the network operator through the optimization of
frequency utilization and increased channel use. Advances in trunked mobile
radio technology have resulted not only in providing user groups with one
channel as in PTMR but also in making a trunk of channels available jointly
to a large number of users. A channel is allocated to the user by the system
only when required, and then immediately withdrawn after use. Whereas
366 6 Trunked Mobile Radio and Packet Data Radio
in PTMR a user would have to wait until a channel allocated to his user
group was free, a trunked mobile radio user can start speaking as soon as any
one of the channels in the channel group is free. In trunked mobile radio,
traﬃc volume is divided evenly over all the available radio channels, with the
trunking of the channels achieving a trunking gain, i.e., the loss probability
pv becomes less and less as the number of channels in a group increases and
each channel is constantly utilized (see Appendix A.2). The traﬃc capacity
[in Erl./(MHz · km )], increases with the trunk group size.
In addition to frequency economy, trunked mobile radio systems oﬀer other
• Low installation cost compared with separate radio control centres.
• Radio supply areas corresponding to the economic areas of activity.
• Higher range.
• No undesirable eavesdropping by others.
• Increased availability because of allocation of channels according to
• Optional access to the public telephone network.
• Expanded services because of selective calling, variable group calling
and priority calls.
• Improvement in quality of service in voice and data transmission.
• Orderly call queuing operation.
6.1 The MPT 1327 Trunked Mobile Radio
The pacesetter in standardized trunked mobile radio systems was Great
Britain, where the Ministry of Post and Telecommunications developed the
trunked mobile radio standard MPT 1327/1343, which is also used in Ger-
many as the technical standard for the ﬁrst generation of (analogue) trunked
mobile radio networks.
Following are some of the services oﬀered in an MPT 1327 trunked mobile
• A normal call can be either an individual or a group call.
• A priority call can be either an individual or a group call.
• The mobile telephones called do not respond when they receive a
6.1 The MPT 1327 Trunked Mobile Radio System 367
• A conventional central station call in which a radio unit wishing to make
a call is not immediately allocated a channel but is required to wait until
the central station sets up the call at a convenient time.
• A conference call in which additional users can participate in a setup
• An emergency call, which can be either a voice or a data call placed by
an individual or by a group.
• A data call can take place between diﬀerent signalling systems, and is
either an individual call or a group call that is transmitted either as a
normal or a priority call.
• Call forwarding or call diversion to another user or group is possible.
• Status messages can be interchanged between diﬀerent radio units or be-
tween radio units and the system, whereby there are 30 diﬀerent special-
purpose messages available.
• Radio telegrams are up to 184 bits long and can be interchanged between
the radio units or between the radio units and the system.
• A short telephone call permits access to a private branch exchange and
to the public telephone network.
In a trunked radio network a distinction is made between two diﬀerent types
of radio channel: the control channel and the traﬃc channel. All switching-
related organizational functions between the system controller and the mobile
radio devices are carried out over the control channel through the exchange
of data. The main tasks of the control channel include:
• Notiﬁcation of call requests
• Establishment and termination of calls
• Allocation of communications channels to mobile stations
Trunked radio systems can be operated as local systems with only one base
station or as area-wide (cellular) systems with cell sizes from 3 km up to
25 km, e.g., in metropolitan areas with a 6 km diameter of the cells.
The basic structure of a cellular MPT 1327 trunked radio network consists
of several cells, each with a radio base station (transceiver, TRX), a trunked
system controller (TSC) and a central node, the master system controller
(MSC), which also implements the gateway to the public telephone network
or to the branch exchange networks (see Figure 6.1).
The TSC controls a radio cell and manages the traﬃc channels and their
allocation to the mobile stations when a call is made. Since roaming is allowed
in a multiple-cell trunked radio network, the TSC also maintains a home and

visitor location register of all the subscribers allocated to the radio cell or
who are temporarily operating in the cell. If a call is in progress during a
cell change, it is not taken over by the new cell but is broken oﬀ; handover
is not supported. Operating and maintenance centres (OMC), which monitor
the system, carry out statistical evaluations and record charges, are coupled
to the MSC.
In addition to the MPT 1327 standard described, which deﬁnes the sig-
nalling protocols between the TSC and the mobile devices, the following stan-
dards are also of importance:
• MPT 1343 speciﬁes the operations of the terminal equipment and deﬁnes
the functions for system control and access to the traﬃc channel.
• MPT 1347 speciﬁes the functions of the ﬁxed network of the system as
well as directives on the allocation of identity numbers.
• MPT 1352 describes the procedures for checking the conformity of the
network elements of diﬀerent manufacturers.
6.1 The MPT 1327 Trunked Mobile Radio System 369
Trunked radio networks can operate in any frequency band suitable for
mobile communications. In Europe trunked radio networks operate in the
80–900 MHz range.
One example is the Chekker network operated by Deutsche Telekom AG
in Germany in accordance with the MPT 1327 standard in the 410–418 MHz
(uplink) and 420–428 MHz (downlink) frequency bands. Up to 20 radio chan-
nels, each with a 12.5 kHz bandwidth, are available per cell. One channel
can normally service 70–80 users. The maximum transmitter power per base
station is 15 W.
Messages are transmitted digitally on the control channel, whereas with
the MPT standard user information is transmitted on the traﬃc channels
in analogue. Mobile stations use the control channel in half-duplex mode,
whereas the base station transmits on this channel in duplex mode. The
necessary signalling data is exchanged on the allocated traﬃc channel during
a user connection.
Phase-shift keying (PSK) modulation has been selected for speech modula-
tion. Fast-Frequency Shift Keying modulation (FFSK) is used for data. The
transmission rate for signalling data is 1.2 kbit/s; the data transmission rate
possible is 2.4 kbit/s.
Systems with a small number of channels can employ a technique allowed
by the MPT protocol in which the control channel can be used as a commu-
nications channel if the need arises.
Mobile stations in a trunked radio system access the control channel in
accordance with a random access method, called the S-ALOHA protocol.
In a trunked radio network a call is set up through a series of steps. All
checked-in radio units follow the sequence of operations on the control channel
in standby mode. When a call request is made, indicated by a keystroke
on the mobile terminal to the central station, the central station checks the
availability of the subscriber terminal being called and informs the respective
subscriber, in some cases through a paging signal over the control channel. If
the subscriber called answers, a free traﬃc channel is automatically assigned
to the respective parties. The maximum call duration in the Chekker service
is 60 s (billing for the service is on a monthly ﬁxed basis). When a call has
been completed, the terminals switch back to the control channel. In the event
that all the radio channels are occupied, an automatic queuing buﬀer system
ensures that radio channels are allocated on an orderly basis, depending on
waiting time or priority.
In Germany the federal postal and telecommunications ministry has pro-
vided four trunked radio network licences for commercial communications:
Licence type A Trunked radio networks for regional areas (metropolitan ar-
eas), which were stipulated by the licensor before the invitation to tender
Licence type B Other regional areas proposed by the licensee.
370 6 Trunked Mobile Radio and Packet Data Radio
Licence type C Trunked radio networks for local, geographically tightly re-
Licence type D Countrywide trunked radio network for mobile data radio
Trunked radio networks are divided into two categories based on user type:
• Public networks, which are operated by an operating company, whose
users include small to medium-sized ﬁrms (e.g., towing services, haulage
ﬁrms, other services).
• Private networks, which are operated by large groups, such as port au-
thorities, automobile manufacturers, airline companies and the police.
Trunked radio networks based on the MPT 1327 standard cannot satis-
factorily support data transfer (status messages, radio telegrams and data
calls). Mobile radio networks were therefore developed for connecting data
terminals with an ITU-T X.25 interface to their data processing systems
(host). Examples of these proprietary data networks include MOBITEX (Swe-
den/England), COGNITO (England), ARDIS (USA) and the MODACOM
network (e.g., Germany since 1992).
MODACOM is a public mobile radio service that was speciﬁcally devel-
oped to provide frequent, high-quality and cost-eﬀective data transmission
and support access to the public X.25 network. Data transfer in this sys-
tem is particularly frequency-economic, because it is transmitted digitally
and packet-switched, and, compared with other services, is very economical
for low-volume transmission. Because of the direct, bi-directional data trans-
fer between data processing systems and mobile data terminals, MODACOM
can provide considerable cost savings in operational organization.
The MODACOM network was initially developed for operation outdoors,
and, in contrast to GSM, was not planned to be used across borders. It is
directed towards customers who would beneﬁt from services being expanded
from the wired, packet-switched data network to the mobile area. Applications
for the MODACOM service include:
• Database access by mobile terminals over the public X.25 network
• Scheduling applications
• Dispatching services, e.g., for shipping and haulage companies
• Telemetry applications such as emission tests, burglar alarms and pa-
rameter requests from vehicles
• Service and maintenance, i.e., remote diagnostics, fault searches or elim-
ination, access to inventory and stock data
6.2 MODACOM 371
6.2.1 Services in the MODACOM Network
After a terminal has been switched on, it searches for a free channel in the
designated channel grid and is checked into the system. After it has been
checked in, a continuous virtual connection exists over which control signals
are exchanged from time to time. These are not transmitted as data packets
until actual data is ready to be sent. Network management ensures that a
user terminal has continuous send and receive capabilities within the overall
MODACOM network as well as access to the following services or performance
• Transmission of status messages or ﬁle transfer (bi-directional)
• Communication between mobile subscribers themselves
• Intermediate storage of data through the mailbox service
• Connection to other data services/networks
• Closed user group
• Support of group calls
• Automatic acknowledgement of receipt of data sent
• Secure data transfer
• Password query, personal identiﬁcation and authorization
6.2.2 The MODACOM Network Structure
The MODACOM system has a cellular structure in which each cell is served
by a base station (BS). The cell radius in urban areas is 8 km and in rural areas
it is 15 km. Therefore the radio coverage area in a radio data network (RDN)
consists of at least one BS that is connected to the area communications
controller (ACC) over a direct data link at 9.6 kbit/s (see Figure 6.2).
The ACC is a switching computer that controls and coordinates the base
stations attached to it. One or more radio areas and the ACC responsible for
the areas together form a domain. MODACOM terminals are allocated to the
ACC with the coverage area in which they are most frequently likely to be
active (home domain). Mobile terminals (MT) also operate outside their home
domain and are allowed to move across domain boundaries, in which case they
are handed over from ACC to ACC (handover ). Communication between
ACCs takes place—unnoticed by the user—over the public X.25 network.
The transition from the radio data network (RDN) to the X.25 data network
materializes over one or more nodes (ACC|G, G = gateway). This transition
is implemented indirectly over dialled-up switched virtual circuits (SVCs) or
permanent virtual circuits (PVCs). A network administration host (NAH) is
responsible for the conﬁguration and the monitoring of the radio network.

6.2.3 Technical Data
The MODACOM system was allocated in Germany the frequency ranges 417–
427 MHz (uplink) and 427–437 MHz (downlink), with a duplex separation
of 12.5 kHz. These frequency bands are divided into 12.5 kHz bandwidth
channels. The 4-FSK technique is used for modulation. The transmitter
power is 6 W for the base station and a maximum of 6 W for the mobile
Data packets are transmitted over the air interface in accordance with the
radio protocol RD-LAP (Radio Data Link Access Procedure), which alter-
natively allows connection-oriented or connectionless communication for syn-
chronous dialled calls in half-duplex mode between MT and host. At the radio
interface the RD-LAP protocol is based on the Slotted Digital Sense Multi-
ple Access (DSMA) channel access method, and incorporates the following
• Maximum packet length is 512 bytes, with shorter packets also allowed.
• If a channel is occupied, the packets to be sent are deferred and the
timing of the next transmission attempt is determined at random (non-
• If a channel is free, transmission is with the probability p (p-persistent
• Connection-oriented transmission.

The RD-LAP protocol includes error detection and correction as well as
procedures for message segmentation and reassemling after receipt. Layer 2
is able to process messages of a maximum length of 2048 bytes segmented
into four data packets each 512 bytes in length and transmitted at 9.6 kbit/s.
The data packets are automatically acknowledged by the network, and in the
case of error a transmission attempt is repeated three times. CRC check sum
procedures (cyclic redundancy check ) are used for error detection. Data is
transmitted with forward error correction procedures using trellis coded mod-
ulation and interleaving with a bit error ratio less than 10−6 . The technical
parameters of the MODACOM system are summarized in Table 6.1 .

184.108.40.206 Connection of Two Mobile Terminals
This type of connection (messaging) allows the exchange of free message texts
with manual or automatic acknowledgement between two mobile terminals.
Simpliﬁed message routing to a third terminal is possible.
A terminal is dialled through the manual input of a terminal address, which
for simpliﬁcation can be associated with an alias table of names or abbrevi-
ations. The messages are provided with an appropriate header. The system
accepts the message, converts it per the sender’s request and transmits it to

the addressee terminal. If the terminal is not available, the message is then

220.127.116.11 Connection to Fixed Network
Connections between MT and the wireline ﬁxed network are exclusively car-
ried out over the public X.25 network. The MODACOM system supports
three types of connection betwen host and MT :
Type 1: Outgoing individual call These calls can be used to interrogate pub-
lic databases, etc. An outgoing individual call is always initiated by an
MT and used for interactive communication with the dialled host. The
connection between MODACOM system and host is set up as a switched
virtual channel (SVC) in the X.25 network. Figure 6.3 illustrates a Type
1 connection over a PAD (packet assembly disassembly).
In order to set up the connection, the MT sends a special data packet
that contains the ITU-T Rec. X.121 address of the target host. The
connection between MT and X.25 network is implemented through X.3-
PAD functions and the SVC connection in the wireline network. The
PAD links asynchronous (start/stop) terminals to an X.25 host.
The MODACOM system emulates only a subset of the X.3 and X.29
interfaces, whereas the X.28 speciﬁcations, which describe the conﬁg-
uration of a PAD by the asynchronous terminal, are not required. A
special data packet is sent by the MT in order to terminate a connec-
tion. A connection can also be terminated by the host using the normal
resources of the X.29 speciﬁcation.
Type 2: Incoming individual call These connections are based on exclusive
switched virtual channels (SVC) that can only be set up by the host.
Figure 6.4 illustrates an example of an incoming individual call.
Since the public X.25 network is only able to connect data terminal
equipment (DTE) with an X.25 interface, the MODACOM network
RDN or its gateway node G is connected to the network as an X.25
subscriber. Every incoming call requires a connection and termination

procedure. When a connection is established, the MT is allocated an
SVC connection, which must be managed exclusively by the MT if it
makes further connections. The number of MTs that can be served by a
host is equal to the number of SVCs that are available between the host
and the MODACOM system. The combination of the SVC and logical
connection to the MT is stored in the MODACOM system to enable
incoming data to be routed to the responsible MT on the basis of the
Type 3: Pooling This is the standard connection between a host and the
MODACOM system in which a large number of (e.g., >100) MTs are
connected to a host through an SVC or a PVC (see Figure 6.5).
Standard context routing (SCR) is used in pooling calls in order to dis-
tinguish between the data packets of the diﬀerent MTs in a time-division
376 6 Trunked Mobile Radio and Packet Data Radio
multiplexed virtual connection. An SCR header that contains the logical
destination address of the MT or the host and other applications-related
parameters is added to each X.25 data packet. To identify an MT, the
host must decode the SCR header that has been received and add it be-
fore each packet when it is transmitting messages, to ensure that each
message is received by the right MT. In a switched connection (SVC)
between the MODACOM system and the host, the connection must
ﬁrst be set up by the host. A PVC (permanent virtual circuit) connec-
tion that requires no time for setting up or terminating a connection is
suitable for users with high traﬃc volumes.
18.104.22.168 Group Calls
Along with the individual call, group calls are another feature of pooling
connections. Each MT can respond to up to seven group addresses; thus up
to seven diﬀerent groups can be formed within a pool of MTs.
A group call is only transmitted once, and there is no acknowledgement
of receipt by the terminal or storage in the MODACOM box. Application
software is available that enables a serial group call to be initiated in which
the same message is sent to MTs in succession. With this procedure each call
is acknowledged or temporarily stored in the MODACOM box.
6.2.5 Roaming and Handover
In the MODACOM system MTs are not restricted to a particular area and,
through constant accessibility by the host, can move about freely in the radio
coverage area. Logical connections are supported by a handover procedure
when there is a changeover from one radio cell to another.
If the terminal establishes that the ﬁeld strength of the selected radio chan-
nel is too low or the bit-error ratio is too high, it initiates a roaming process
and assigns itself to a new base station. The MT thereby searches for a new
radio channel, evaluates the quality and the availability of the radio channel
on the basis of status messages that are regularly sent by the base station,
and, if the channel is considered satisfactory, transmits a registration packet
to register itself with the relevant base station. Two types of roaming are
diﬀerentiated in the MODACOM system:
Roaming within the home ACC area in which messages coming from the
host are merely rerouted to the other base station.
Roaming between two ACC areas occurs when an MT leaves its ACC area
and registers in another ACC area. The visited ACC checks the au-
thorization of the MT with the home ACC and, if the MT is accepted,
exchanges all the data required for the operation of the MT with the
home ACC. The MT is then registered in the visitor register of the new
ACC. All data relating to the MT is then forwarded from the home ACC
6.3 The TETRA Trunked Mobile Radio System 377
to the visited ACC. The visited ACC in turn reroutes all messages from
the MT to the home ACC.
6.3 Second-Generation Trunked Mobile Radio
Systems: The TETRA Standard∗
Despite the introduction of GSM throughout Europe, it is expected that the
subscriber numbers for trunked mobile radio systems will continue to grow
steadily, possibly reaching around ﬁve million by the year 2000.
None of the ﬁrst-generation trunked radio systems currently on the market
oﬀers satisfactory voice and data services or is technically capable of dealing
with the anticipated number of subscribers. In an eﬀort to harmonize the
trunked radio market in Europe, and taking all these factors into account,
ETSI decided in 1988 to produce a standard for a digitial, Pan-European
trunked radio network. The ﬁrst working title for this system, which was
developed by the Technical Subcommittee RES 06, was MDTRS (Mobile Dig-
ital Trunked Radio System). However, in late 1991 the new name TETRA
(Terrestrial Trunked Radio) was introduced for MDTRS.
Two families of standards have been produced for TETRA (see Table 6.2):
• Voice plus Data Standard (V+D)
• Data only (Packet Data Optimized Standard, PDO)

378 6 Trunked Mobile Radio and Packet Data Radio
The TETRA V+D standard is envisaged as the successor to existing ﬁrst-
generation trunked radio networks, whereas the PDO standard deﬁnes a
second-generation packet radio system. Both standards use the same physical
transmission technology and largely the same transmit/receive equipment.
European-wide standardization is forcing the issue of interoperability, i.e.,
manufacturer-independency of terminal equipment in the TETRA network,
as well as interworking between diﬀerent TETRA networks and the ﬁxed net-
works. Local and regional voice and radio data applications are being replaced
by a European trunked radio system that covers all voice and data services
and satiﬁes current requirements for bit rates and transmission delay. The
main application areas for TETRA are ﬂeet management, telemetry, service
companies and for communication within government departments and orga-
nizations responsible for security.
Network operators, legislators, manufacturers and users were included in
the standardization process to ensure that the ETSI-TETRA standard would
have the chance of widespread implementation in the European market. The
ﬁrst TETRA products were available in late 1996. In 1997 the system was
able to oﬀer individual and group calls and data and other services described
in detail in Section 6.3.2.
6.3.1 Technical Data on the TETRA Trunked Radio System
The trunked radio system TETRA can be used as a local or a multicell net-
work. Since the transmitter power of the terminal equipment is 1 W, 3 W or
10 W, the maximum cell radius in rural areas is limited to 25 km. Several
frequencies in the ranges between 380 MHz and 470 MHz and 870 MHz up to
933 MHz have been allocated to the frequency bands for the uplink and the
downlink (see Table 6.3). The possibility of using the 1.8 GHz band is being
The TETRA system uses π/4-DQPSK modulation and oﬀers a gross bit
rate of 36 kbit/s in a single 25 kHz channel. With an average quality of
service guaranteed by the channel coding, the net bit rate is at 19.2 kbit/s.
Without channel coding it is possible to achieve a maximum net bit rate of
28.8 kbit/s (see Table 6.4). With V+D four TDMA voice or data channels are
available per carrier; with PDO there is no circuit-switched communication
and a statistical multiplexing of packets is employed instead.
Slotted-ALOHA (with reservation in data transmission) is used as the ac-
cess procedure with V+D. In TETRA PDO a choice can be made between
the access methods Slotted-ALOHA with reservation and Data Sense Multiple
Access (DSMA), depending on traﬃc load. With V+D the frame structure
consists of four 510-bit time slots per frame, 18 frames per multiframe and 60
multiframes per hyperframe, the latter representing the largest time unit and
taking approximately one minute (see Section 22.214.171.124).
With the PDO protocol the length of an information block is 124 bits
protected by convolutional coding with a code ratio 2/3 and transmitted con-
