Chapter 2: What is 3G and its Global Trend?
3G ( Third Generation ) is the 1 of the newest in radio engineering. It is besides known as UMTS ( Universal Mobile Telecommunications System ) , an betterment over 2G ( Second Generation ) supplying wireless entree to the informations and information to the users from anyplace and anytime.
3G cellular phones were foremost launched in Japan in October 2001. This 3G phone was designed so users would be able to surf the Internet, position images of the people they are speaking to, watch films and listen to music on their French telephones.
International Mobile Telecommunications-2000 ( IMT-2000 ) , better known asA 3GA orA 3rd Generation, is a household of criterions for wireless communications defined by the International Telecommunication Union, which includesA GSMA EDGE, A UMTS, andA CDMA2000A every bit good asA DECTA andA WiMAX. Servicess include wide-area wireless voice telephone, A picture calls, and radio informations, all in a nomadic environment. Compared toA 2GA andA 2.5GA services, 3G allows coincident usage of address and informations services and higher informations rates ( up to 14.4A Mbit/s on the downlink and 5.8A Mbit/s on the uplink withA HSPA+ ) . Therefore, 3G webs enable web operators to offer users a wider scope of more advanced services while accomplishing greater web capacity through improvedA spectral efficiency. Mobile telephone allowed us to speak on the move. The cyberspace turned natural informations into helpful services that people found easily to utilize. Now, these two engineerings are meeting to make 3rd coevals Mobile services. In simple footings, 3rd coevals ( 3G ) services combine high velocity nomadic entree with Internet Protocol ( IP ) -based services. But this does n’t merely intend fast nomadic connexion to the World Wide Web. Rather, whole new ways to pass on, entree information, behavior concern, learn and be entertained – liberated from slow, cumbrous equipment and immoveable points of entree. It will heighten and widen mobility in many countries of our lives.
2.1 Development Of 3G Technology:
First-generation radio telephone engineering, cell phones. These are the parallel cell phone besides known as AMPS that were introduced in the 1980s.
Digital nomadic phones, including those that use GSM, CDMA or TDMA webs, are the 2nd coevals phones. 2G webs were built chiefly for voice informations and slow transmittal. They offer data-transfer rates runing from 9.6 kb/s to 19.2 kb/s.
Technologies such as i-mode informations services, camera phones, high-velocity circuit-switched informations ( HSCSD ) and General package wireless service ( GPRS ) that provide some functionality spheres like 3G webs, but without the full passage to 3G web. Interim hardware and package solutions are emerging that promise to hold existent or perceived informations transportation rates runing from 56 kb/s to 170 kb/s.
Third-generation digital-phone webs will hold a nominal upper limit informations rate of 2 Mb/s, which can manage streaming picture, bipartisan voice over IP, and Internet content with high-quality artworks and circuit boards to a radio phone.
Harmonizing to Ericsson, 3G is a generic term that really describes different spirits of radio:
Code Division Multiple Access 2000 ( CDMA2000 ) :
CDMA2000, besides known as IS-136 and IMT-CDMA Multi-Carrier ( 1X/3X ) is a wireless transmittal engineering for the development of narrowband cdmaOne/IS-95 to 3rd-generation adding up multiple bearers. Cdma2000 will be deployed in two stages.
Universal Mobile Telecommunications System ( UMTS ) :
The name for the 3rd coevals mobile telephone criterion in Europe, standardized by ETSI.
General Packet Radio Service ( GPRS ) :
A packet-linked engineering that enables high-speed ( 115 kbit per second ) radio Internet and other informations communications. GPRS will offer a ten-fold addition in informations throughput rates, from 9.6kbit/s to 115kbit/s. Using a package information service, endorsers are ever connected and ever online.
Wideband Code Division Multiple Access ( WCDMA ) :
A engineering for wideband digital wireless communications of Internet, multimedia, picture and other capacity-demanding applications. WCDMA, developed by Ericsson and others from CDMA, has been selected for the 3rd coevals of nomadic telephone systems in Europe, Japan and the United States. WCDMA uses variable rate techniques in digital processing and can accomplish multi-rate transmittals. WCDMA has been adopted as a criterion by the ITU under the name IMT-2000 direct spread.
Enhanced Data rates for Global Evolution ( EDGE ) :
A engineering that gives GSM and TDMA the capacity to manage services for the 3rd coevals of nomadic telephone. EDGE was developed to enable the transmittal of big sums of informations at a high velocity, 384 kb/s. EDGE uses the same TDMA ( Time Division Multiple Access ) frame construction, logic channel and 200 kilohertzs bearer bandwidth as today ‘s GSM webs, which allows bing cell programs to stay integral.
Cellular nomadic telecommunications webs are being upgraded to utilize 3G engineerings from 1999 to 2010. Japan was the first state to present 3G nationally, and in Japan the passage to 3G was mostly completed in 2006. Korea so adopted 3G Networks shortly after and the passage was made every bit early as 2004.
Chapter 3: 3G Technology in India
The Indian Telecommunications web with 621 million connexions ( as on March 2010 ) is the 3rd largest in the universe. The sector is turning at a velocity of 45 % during the recent old ages. This rapid growing is possible due to assorted proactive and positive determinations of the Government and part of both by the populace and the private sectors. The rapid paces in the telecom sector have been facilitated by broad policies of the Government that provides easy market entree for telecom equipment and a just regulative model for offering telecom services to the Indian consumers at low-cost monetary values. Soon, all the telecom services have been opened for private engagement. The Government has taken following chief enterprises for the growing of the Telecom Sector.
The authorities has in a pioneering determination, decided to auction 3G & A ; BWA spectrum. The wide policy guidelines for 3G & A ; BWA have already been issued on 1stAugust 2008 and allocation of spectrum has been planned through at the same time go uping e-auction procedure by a specialised bureau. New participants would besides be able to offer therefore taking to engineering invention, more competition, faster axial rotation out and finally greater pick for clients at competitory duties. The 3G will let telecom companies to offer extra value added services such as high declaration picture and multimedia services in add-on to voice, facsimile and conventional informations services with high informations rate transmittal capablenesss. BWA will go a prevailing platform for broadband axial rotation out services. It is besides an effectual tool for set abouting societal enterprises of the Government such as e-education, telemedicine, e-health and e-Governance. Supplying low-cost broadband, particularly to the suburban and rural communities is the following focal point country of the Department.
BSNL & A ; MTNL have already been allotted 3G & A ; BWA spectrum with a position to guaranting early axial rotation out of 3G & A ; WiMax services in the state. They will pay the same monetary value for the spectrum as discovered through the auction. While, Honorable Prime Minister launched the MTNL ‘s 3G nomadic services on the inaugural map of ‘India Telecom 2008 ‘ held on 11th December 2008, BSNL launched its countrywide 3G services from Chennai, in the southern Tamil Nadu province on 22nd February 2009.

Bharti-Airtel leads the radio market with 24 % market portion. The company late achieved the charming figure of 100 million endorsers. However, Bharti-Airtel expects a bloodletting in the Indian telecom market in the close hereafter, and is looking to distribute its hazards by come ining new geographicss ( Bharti-MTNL trade is discussed in Industry Update Section ) . With 12-13 participants present in the market there would be a terrible force per unit area on borders. Be it an Aircel or Etisalat, the new operators would non stay fringe participants in the Indian market, but would seek and sway the applecart of bing operators. The growing in Indian market could get down tapering off really shortly. Harmonizing to an industry expert the subscriber base will non spread out beyond 800 million in coming old ages from current figure 400 million.

Chapter 4: MVAS and Applications
Operators are confronting cutthroat competition and with the call rates in India being one of the cheapest in the universe, the borders are really low. Therefore they are looking at VAS as the following moving ridge for growing.
4.1 Factors which are lending to the development of the VAS market in India.
India has maintained its place as the second-fastest turning major economic system after China, as lifting consumer and authorities disbursement taking topographic point. Consumption and substructure disbursement are driving the growing. This dining economic system has created occupation chances and increased the disbursement power of an mean Indian. This has resulted in higher disposable incomes and faster credence of new engineerings with a willingness to pass for them.
Need for more than basic mobility services
There is now a critical mass of users in the Indian nomadic telephone market who are experient mobility users. These users are really comfy in utilizing their phones and want to exert the option of making more on them beyond basic voice applications. The first stage of growing for VAS has come in from these converts ; and these users will go on to drive the market and germinate into more advanced applications. At the same clip the basic VAS applications will besides go on to appeal to the new mobility class novices.
Personalization of the phone, now a digital device
With increasing force per unit areas and emphasis on individualism, mobility users besides want to transport frontward their individualism to their nomadic device. Thus for a big figure of users the nomadic phone has become a truly personal device and VAS has become an extension of character. The tremendous success of Caller Ring Back Tone ( CRBT ) is an first-class illustration which illustrates that users are ready to accommodate to any service which offer them the option of personalization.
Decrease in call rates & A ; CPP induction
CPP ( Calling Party Pays ) was an of import enterprise which unshackled the mobility market and allowed many more endorsers to come in the mobility class. This enterprise, in concurrence with the gradual decrease in call rates has ensured that the outgo on voice for a typical user has gone down over the old ages. As a consequence more users have become comfy in disbursement on VAS as it does non significantly impact their overall spending on mobility.
Market attempts driving VAS
For the operators, success of VAS has become of import for their growing. This has led to a crisp focal point on selling & A ; affiliations and a slightly limited focal point on development of content. Most operators are now seeking to introduce in their VAS offerings and make sharper distinction for their offerings.
Focus on films & A ; music
Movies & A ; Music are the passion of India. Most of the rich content available to the terminal users revolves around these two, with Ringtones of popular Bollywood vocals, Wallpapers of film leads and games developed around film subjects. Given that Youth history for a big section of users & A ; besides dominate the pre-paid class, the focal point on amusement has been a strong hook to develop the VAS class and operators & A ; content collectors have been aggressively focused in their attempts to tweak this low hanging fruit. It has been helpful that the movie industry in India is really fecund and there are eternal options to develop content around.
Television is another culturally entrenched invariable in the life of the mean Indian. Typically Television screening has been a inactive matter nevertheless following the planetary tendency Television channels have been focused on doing programming synergistic. Therefore plans, particularly music & A ; competition shows have started giving the option to their viewing audiences to take part through SMS.Popular world show generate 1000000s by SMS over short periods. These shows have besides been a cardinal driver in increasing acquaintance with basic SMS for traditional low user sections like non-working adult females.

4.2 Mobile VAS into three wide caputs, based on the nature of the service Offers:
Entertainment VAS- Entertainment VAS is designed for mass entreaty and extended use. These provide amusement for leisure clip use. An illustration of these sort of services are Jokes, Bollywood Ringtones & A ; games. These services are presently really popular and are driving the grosss for the Indian nomadic VAS market.
Info VAS- These are the services which provide utile information to the terminal user. The user involvement comes in from the personal constituent of the content. E.g. Information on film tickets, intelligence, banking history etc. These besides include productiveness services like missed call information which brings back lost concern chance for the operators. They besides include user petition for information on other merchandise classs like real- province, instruction etc.
MCommerce VAS ( Transactional services ) – mCommerce VAS allow the usage to carry on a dealing utilizing the nomadic phone. These services are in a really nascent stage and are non truly available to most users. An illustration of this sort of service is purchasing railway tickets or film tickets through the nomadic phone.
4.3 Contented Enablers
At the first degree bing portals in the Internet infinite are supplying content to stop users. For most of them, nomadic information content offers an extra grosss stream, from a strategic position it besides offers an chance to leverage the traffic to the portal and bring forth possible advertisement grosss. Ringtones & A ; wallpapers are two really popular classs where portals like Indiatimes & A ; Rediff lead. On the following degree there are a host of big content collectors. Most of these like Mauj & A ; Indiagames offer content straight to the terminal user through their ain portal and besides supply content to mobile operators. They perform the duplicate maps of in-house content development & A ; besides aggregating from other smaller dress shops.
There are besides many little pure development entities, as they do non hold the proficient support to host content or to negociate with operators they prefer to supply it to collectors.
The states abroad already have assorted content athleticss intelligence, amusement, documentary etc which are a major beginning of income for these suppliers which is supported by high informations bandwidth and fast velocities of 3G.
Third Party Copy Right Owner
Most of the rich content in nomadic VAS is built around Bollywood films & A ; music. The
right of first publication for these are held by production houses or remainders with single artistes. A portion of the gross is shared as fee with the proprietors for utilizing the copyright stuff.
Apart from Ringtone & A ; wallpaper development there is besides a turning tendency of game development around popular Bollywood films, These proprietors can now even pass on larger files and better options would be available the clients.
Traditional Media Companies
Following the planetary tendency most traditional media companies are besides seeking to convey the characteristic of interactivity into their media. As we have discussed in the first portion, SMS competitions have been a really successful manner for Television channels to accomplish this. However utilizing this characteristic involved gross sharing with several entities, so to bring forth cost efficiencies over the long tally, some media houses have expanded and acquired Short Codes for their ain trade names. Outstanding amongst them are Sony Television, Aaaj Tak & A ; Zee Television. With the 3G engineering onset these media companies can believe of turn outing more media intensive services with high bandwidth downloads supported by the handiness faster and harass free downloads.
4.4 VAS Platforms
Every service needs a platform for bringing VAS can be provided to the clients on two
Platforms- Data & A ; Voice
The terminal user sends the service petition in an SMS signifier. The petition goes to a waiter managed by the Platform enabler on behalf of the operator. The content is arranged by the Operator from the Content Aggregator who procures it from the Content developer. This content is forwarded to the Platform enabler who shops it in the waiter. The waiter automatically and outright entertains the petition from the client as all these VAS are preloaded into the waiter.
The terminal user calls up the service supplier and helps of the service. The call is routed to a waiter managed by Platform enabler. The waiter interacts with companies utilizing IVRS ( Synergistic Voice Recognition System ) , gathers information and routes calls to the appropriate receiver. The staying concatenation is same as that of a text based platform. Per unit voice based VAS generates more gross than text based VAS as the call charges are really high at Rs 6/7min and choosing the service usually takes more than a minute. This means that for the same service voice based will bring forth several times the gross over text based VAS.
As the incursion increases more in rural India, necessity and importance of IVRS will increase as people will be more comfy with an synergistic voice platform in local linguistic communication over choosing options by pressing Numberss.
Chapter 5: Legal Requirements for 3G in India
5.1 Legal spectrum demands
The policy calls for an auction for spectrum with different modesty monetary value fixed for separate telecom circles. As against the demand of certain anteroom groups, the authorities has opened the market for local every bit good as foreign participants, every bit long as they meet certain standards – keeping a incorporate entree service ( UAS ) licence or being eligible to keep UAS licence. The foreign participants who will be eligible to keep a UAS licence will hold to organize JVs with local spouse and can keep a upper limit of 74 per cent in the JV as per the bing FDI norms in the telecom sector. However, in add-on to the auction monetary value, they will hold to pay UAS license fee.
The spectrum will be auctioned in blocks of 2A-5 MHz in 2.1 GHz set. There can be a upper limit of 10 participants in any circle and in most instances the figure will change between 5-10 participants. The licence will keep for 20 old ages and besides 3G license fee houses will hold to pay spectrum usage charge. However, in the first twelvemonth, the houses will non hold to pay this spectrum charge which will amount to 1 per cent of one-year gross gross from the 2nd twelvemonth onwards.
The modesty monetary value for the auction of spectrum in Delhi, Mumbai and other Circle A class has been fixed at Rs 160 crore. Kolkata and Circle B countries will hold a reserve monetary value of Rs 80 crore and Circle C will hold a floor monetary value of Rs 30 crore. A pan India licence will hold a reserve monetary value of Rs 2,020 crore.
The authorities is looking to earn every bit much as $ 10 billion from the auctions. While this may be little money for India ( the 2nd fastest turning emerging market in the universe and besides the 2nd largest radio market after China ) compared to 3G auctions deserving $ 34 billion in UK eight old ages back, one needs to factor in the catastrophe that the high monetary values caused in the British market as telecom operators struggled to bring forth returns. If the figure of commands is less than or equal to the figure of spectrum blocks in a peculiar circle, spectrum will be allocated to all the bidders at the highest command monetary value. If the figure of commands is more, so the e-auction regulations will be applicable. The authorities will name an external bureau for the auctions.
The PSU operators – MTNL and BSNL – will acquire a discriminatory intervention. They will be allocated one block in the circles in which they are runing. They need non take part in the auction but will hold to blast out an sum equal to the highest command monetary value for that country.
At the clip of allotment of the spectrum blocks will be given to bidders harmonizing to their commands. In instance of a tie those holding an bing operation in a circle will acquire a penchant and in instance of another tie on those standards, those holding more endorsers in that circle will acquire the penchant.
The authorities has besides put a mandatary rollout program for 3G services to deter billboard of spectrum. The licensee has to rollout services in 90 per cent of metro countries within five old ages and for other circles the licence holders have to cover 50 per cent of the country which would hold to include 15 per cent rural countries. There are besides punishments for non run intoing the rollout duties.
5.2 Guidelines for 3G Servicess:
The 3G ( 3rd coevals ) Mobile telecommunications is the generic name for the following coevals of nomadic webs that will unite radio mobile engineering with high informations rate transmittal capablenesss. The 3G webs will be capable of supplying higher information rates and will besides be capable of back uping a assortment of services such as high- declaration picture and multimedia services in add-on to voice, facsimile and conventional informations services.
3G spectrum will be permitted in the 2.1 GHz set.
The 3G licences would be granted through a controlled, coincident go uping e-auction, by a specialised bureau to guarantee transparence in the choice procedure.
Besides the initial, one clip spectrum charge, it has been decided that the successful service supplier would pay extra spectrum charge of 0.5 % of their entire Adjusted Gross Revenue ( AGR ) , as the repeating one-year spectrum charge. This extra gross portion is proposed to be 1 % of AGR after 3 old ages from the day of the month of spectrum assignment.
The axial rotation out demands, including rural roll-out, every bit good as stiff punishments for non conformity of the same has been stipulated.
Amalgamations will non be allowed during the initial five old ages. No trading/ reselling of spectrum is allowed.
The CDMA spectrum in 800 MHz set for EV-DO applications would be treated individually from 2.1 GHz spectrum. If the CDMA based service supplier ( s ) ask for the EV-DO bearer of 2 ten 1.25 MHz, they would hold to pay an sum proportionate to the highest command for spectrum in 2.1 GHz set.
Chapter 6: Recommendations and Findingss
Impact Of The 3G Technology:
The twenty-four hours authorities introduced the 3G norms the Sensex shot up 301 platinums which shows that the market and companies in India are ready for the engineering and many companies are ready to put in this engineering as they foresee the success of 3G in India.
The bing 2G spectrum is already congested and has really small room for farther enlargement and is already congested with the current participants and the of all time increasing consumer user base.
The 3G engineering brings with it higher bandwidth and a more secure and a dependable web as compared to the bing engineering which will back up applications and let media and content of big size to be downloaded faster and in a easier manner.
The 3G engineering offers more Interoperability between service suppliers which would give more options to clients to exchange suppliers for better coverage handiness. The 3G engineering utilizations IP based connectivity and hence will let users to be ever online on the move and its gives the suppliers to configure different informations rates for different users and hence
The high bandwidths will besides opens the door for rich multimedia to be shared and accessed with the support from the bandwidth of the new spectrum provides.
The cost of upgrading base Stationss and cellular substructure to 3G is really high. Hence the participants involved demand to hold really deep pockets to back up their investings and may look for support from foreign investings.
The users will necessitate different French telephones and there is the issue of handset handiness particularly if we are looking at French telephones which support.
The 3 G engineering requires the base Stationss to be nigher as compared to the 2G engineering which would increase the cost for the services suppliers.The costs will besides add up with the spectrum licence cost, web deployment costs and handset subsidies to the clients.The power demand is besides higher for these devices and all this will add to the capital demand which will be a inquiry to the companies whether they would gain borders and when would they interrupt even. The other challenge is besides that user would non be that ready to exchange from 2G to 3G if the shift cost is high.
3G is traveling to make to the Internet in India what 2G did to mobile telephone. Telecommunication operators in India have been confronting issues of worsening ARPU and MPU on voice services which has brought call charges to every bit low as half a paisa per second and even lower than that for certain operators, oppugning sustainability for these participants. VAS has bettered the viability of this sector in recent times, and 3G will farther add to telecom operator ‘s informations transporting capacity, leting them to turn over out long anticipated data-intensive services.
The Service Providers will hold to supply the service at low shift costs for better credence this would ensue in hold in interrupting even for the investings already made by these companies to get the engineering.
The ARPU tendency shows a positive tendency which is a positive mark for the service suppliers as they can anticipate to bring forth gross from the 3G engineering but will hold to look out for intense competition from the participants in the market as MNP available would do high churn rates of clients.
