WHAT IS TELECOMMUNICATION
Telecommunication links via satellites are bringing about revolutionary changes in
the fields of communication. The barriers of spaces and time have totally
collapsed. Not very long ago it took days to the communicate to someone through
a letter but the new STD and ISD facilities have made communication an
instantaneous process. The world appears to have contracted or been squeeed into
a small room in which! given certain facilities! it is possible to communicate with
anyone in any part in the world.
THE MOBILE PHONE TECHNOLOGIES
GSM: "S# stands for $"lobal System for #obile %ommunications.$ "S# is
mostly a &uropean system and is largely unused in the 'S. "S# is interesting in
that it uses a modified and far more efficient version of TD#(. "S# keeps the
idea of timeslots and frequency channels! but corrects several ma)or shortcomings.
Since the "S# timeslots are smaller than TD#(! they hold less data but allow for
data rates starting at *++ bits per second. Thus! a call can use as many timeslots as
necessary up to a limit of 1* kilobits per second. ,hen a call is inactive -silence.
or may be compressed more! fewer timeslots are used. To facilitate filling in gaps
left by unused timeslots! calls do $frequency hopping$ in "S#. This means that
calls will )ump between channels and timeslots to ma/imie the system0s usage. (
control channel is used to communicate the frequency hopping and other
information between the cell tower and the phone. To compare with the other
systems! it should be noted that "S# requires 1 ,att of output power from the
CDMA: %D#( stands for $%ode Division #ultiple (ccess$ and is both the most
interesting and the hardest to implement multiple/ing method. %D#( has been
likened to a party1 ,hen everyone talks at once! no one can be understood!
however! if everyone speaks a different language! then they can be understood.
%D#( systems have no channels! but instead encode each call as a coded
sequence across the entire frequency spectrum. &ach conversation is modulated! in
the digital domain! with a unique code -called a pseudo2noise code. that makes it
distinguishable from the other calls in the frequency spectrum. 'sing a correlation
calculation and the code the call was encoded with! the digital audio signal can be
e/tracted from the other signals being broadcast by other phones on the network.
3rom the perspective of one call! upon e/tracting the signal! everything else
appears to be low2level noise.
(s long as there is sufficient separation between the codes -said to be mutually
orthogonal.! the noise level will be low enough to recover the digital signal. &ach
signal is not! in fact! spread across the whole spectrum -14.5 #6 for traditional
cellular or 7+ #6 in 8%S cellular.! but is spread across 1.45 #6 $pass2bands.$
%D#( systems are the latest technology on the market and are already eclipsing
TD#( in terms of cost and call quality. Since %D#( offers far greater capacity
and variable data rates depending on the audio activity! many more users can be fit
into a given frequency spectrum and higher audio quality can be provide. The
current %D#( systems boast at least three times the capacity of TD#( and "S#
systems. The fact that %D#( shares frequencies with neighboring cell towers
allows for easier installation of e/tra capacity! since e/tra capacity can be achieved
by simply adding e/tra cell sites and shrinking power levels of nearby sites.
%D#( technology also allows lower cell phone power levels -4++ miliwatts. since
the modulation techniques e/pect to deal with noise and are well suited to weaker
signals. The downside to %D#( is the comple/ity of deciphering and e/tracting
the received signals! especially if there are multiple signal paths -reflections.
between the phone and the cell tower -called multi path interference.. (s a result!
%D#( phones are twice as e/pensive as TD#( phones and %D#( cell site
equipment is *29 times the price of TD#( equivalents.

The transmission of the senders ideas to the receiver and the receiver0s feedback or
reaction to the sender constitute the telecommunication cycle. The main steps o
this cycle is as follows=

WHAT IS TELECOMMUNICATION MAR'ETING
(s we know the definition of #arketing 2 D#arketing is a process by which
individuals and groups obtain what they need and want by creating and e/changing
products and value with other.E Thus we can say that Telecommunication
#arketing is a process by which Telecom %ompany or operator0s presents their
products F services. Telecommunicating has a great role in modern economy F
society. ,ithout telecommunication we can thing about the prosperity of the
society. The base of the modern progressive society is telecommunication.
Telecommunication makes the whole world as a global village. So people can
communicate with each other from a long distance. 6ere long distance means from
any where of the world. Now2a2 days in most of the country0s telecom industry
contributes a huge share of national income. ,ithout marketing telecom industries
can0t bring their products and services to their customers. So Telecom #arketing
has a great importance in modern society.

?angladesh Telecom <imited -?T<. was awarded a license to operate cellular!
paging! and other wireless communication networks. In (pril 1GG+! ?T< and

cellular products were launched under the brand name $%ity%ell Digital$. 12our
year0s later! commercial operation started in %hittagong. In 1GGG %ity%ell was the
first! and only! operator in ?angladesh to introduce the newer %D#( technology.
The others relied on the more widespread "S# technology.
%ity%ell was spared the interconnectivity problems that plagued "rameen 8hone!
as it had sufficient connection switches with ?TT?. This was a definite
competitive edge that %ity%ell could not e/ploit to the fullest. In spite of having a
four year head2start! %ity%ell watched "rameen 8hone pass it by. Aery soon! the
second newcomer! (ktel! overtook it. >ne wonders whether %ity%ell can hang on
to its third position! in the face the aggressive launch by newcomer ?anglalink.
In face of steep competition from its peers! %ity%ell eventually adopted a new
growth strategy! incorporating advanced customer service and choice of budget2
friendly packages with affordable peak and off2peak rates. The price of its
packages fell by a minimum of G5I! a further indication of how e/pensive they
were in the first place. The company focused on improved customer care! and

%ity%ell is the first operator in ?angladeshi to introduce IDD and N,D for

with an active mobile subscriber base of over **+!+++.
