Types of 3G Phones

Hi Friends,

3G fever is taking over India in a few months from now as private telecom companies are going to start 3G services all over India.

Having a 3G network is ONLY good if we have a 3G phone with a 3G SIM card in it 🙂

I did some research on 3G phones and found some useful information which i wanted to share for the benefit of all.

There are 2 types of 3G phones available today, some give true 3G experience while others can support only low speed 3G access.

What is WCDMA and HSPA?
HSPA (High Speed Packet Access) is a new generation communication protocol that allows data connections up to 21 Mbps per user in good coverage and quality conditions. Today mobile phones, datacards & USB dongles are available with HSPA.

WCDMA (Wideband Code Division Multiple Access) is a 3G technology version that allows data connections up to 384 kbps per user (64kbps, 128kbps, 384 kbps) in good coverage and quality conditions.

What are the benefits of HSPA over WCDMA?
HSPA allows you to get the best experience of 3G. Given the same bandwidth for WCDMA and HSPA, HSPA allows higher bit rates compared to WCDMA to be delivered to the end users.
Major advantages include:
Faster downloads and sophisticated applications support
Faster response time between network and device, improving the download times and network performance
Improved network performance also leads to significant savings in the battery life of the device
Far better experience due to quality reception resulting from the higher bit rates


Indian Railways: 5 digit train numbers

The  Indian railway will introduce  a five-digit numbering system for all passenger trains from December aiming to make it simpler for rail travellers to be informed about the “category” of their trains by just knowing their numbers.
As of now, trains have varying numbers, including three-digit, four-digit and alpha-numeric variants.

According to the new system digit `1‘ will be prefixed before the existing four-digit numbers for Mail and Express trains .
An official clarifying that the names of the trains will not be changed said that the five-digit train numbering has become necessary,since four-digit system has been exhausted.
The five-digit scheme proposes to cover all passenger trains, including Duronto, Rajdhani, Shatabdi, Garib Rath and suburban holiday specials. However, it will not cover freight trains.

“CRIS (Centre for Railway Information Systems) has been instructed to make necessary changes to modify the software.Once the software is ready, the new numbers will be reflected in both passenger reservation system and train enquiry system” the official added.
