mobile terminal (GPRS) (MT)
In trunked radio and General Packet Radio Service( GPRS), a mobile terminal( MT) is referred to as a mobile terminal; in contrast, the term mobile station( MS) is used in other mobile radio systems.
- The mobile terminal of a GPRS system communicates with a subscriber terminal equipment( TE) and via radio with a radio base station( BTS). With GPRS, a distinction is made between three different MT classes: The technically sophisticated A- class devices can make calls and transmit data simultaneously. In class B devices, on the other hand, data transmission must be interrupted to accept a telephone call. In the case of class C, the GSM/GPRS operating mode must be specified before the connection is established because it cannot be changed during operation.
- In the case of Modacom mobile data radio, the mobile terminal can be a computer with peripheral equipment, depending on the application. This mobile terminal is connected directly to the base station.
