GSM cell phone technology is perhaps the most widely used wireless technology in the world. According to Cintex Wireless, a mobile carrier heavily dependent on this widely used technology, GSM is estimated to provide over 80 percent of world cell phone users with their mobile service, far surpassing the competing CDMA cell standard.
GSM, says Cintex Wireless, is an acronym for Global System for Mobile communications. GSM-based cell service allow cell phones to search for the GSM mobile carriers to search for and capitalize on cell phone towers within a specific area. GSM can trace its roots back to 1982, when it was first created by the European Conference of Postal and Telecommunications Administrations, or CEPT. CEPT, says Cintex Wireless, first introduced this technology with the intention of designing a mobile technology that could cover the entirety of the European continent.
GSM, says Cintex Wireless, is used by more than 3 billion people across the globe, and has become perhaps the most popular wireless technology ever created or utilized. GSM allows for a more international roaming wireless capability than other standard United States mobile technologies, in essence making GSM-based cell phones more “world-friendly.” Cintex Wireless believes that GSM will one day become the predominate technology in the United States, and provide American wireless consumers with a better wireless technology option than ever before.
GSM is effective, says Cintex Wireless, because it relies on SIM, or Subscriber Identity Module, technology. A SIM card can easily be transferred from one phone to another, making any mobile handset accessible to various GSM carriers. A SIM card, says Cintex Wireless, is basically your digital identity, and is more connected to your current carrier than it is to the actual device. This translates into an easier way for mobile users to switch their service providers without the headache of purchasing a brand new phone. Cintex Wireless believes this technology provides far more wireless freedom than the VDMA technology currently in widespread use in the United States.
The GSM technology predates VDMA, and is the most used cell technology in the world. It provides users with a larger amount of carrier freedom than VDMA, and may soon become the most used mobile technology in the United States. Cintex Wireless places a high amount of value on GSM-based mobile systems, and has relied on the technology to become a leading cell service provider. Cintex Wireless is proud to be a force for the powerful GSM mobile technology.
