    UMA Technology! Share your knowledge

    Hello,

    I got the overview on UMA technology by the following link:

    http://umatechnology.org/overview/index.htm

    I could not find any information about the billing system for UMA user. Will it be same cost whether a subscriber uses UMA for his voice call, gprs, etc rather than conventional GSM network? As long as UMA will use wlan interface for transfer/receive data, is it possible to use the wlan interface for some communication like browsing internet in IP network, also some data communication over wlan Ad-hoc network.

    UMA is new and innovative mobile technology. So it will be nice to have some discussion regarding UMA. There may be developers who already know UMA technology. And developers (like me) who want to know more about UMA. So please share your knowledge regarding UAM technology in this thread by providing useful information, links, etc. Thanks!

    Operators deploying UMA will decide how and what they bill for UMA calls. Presumably the calls would be cheaper, but it is for each and every operator to decide.

    Unhappy Re: UMA Technology! Share your knowledge

    Hi guys,

    I'm very much interested in the concept of UMA. I've read the 3GPP specs on this as well. But still I've some problems regarding the 'rove-in' of MS from GERAN to UMA.

    - How does the mobile phone initiate this? In 3GPP TS 43.318, this is not clearly mentioned. How ever, it specifies how the phone initiates a 'handover' from GSM to UMA. Judging by that, in my view, to make this (Rove-in) happen also, the phone needs to send a NMR(Network Measurement Report) to the serving BSC by assigning athe highest signal strength to the UMA cell information. Is this what happens in the Nokia 6136 as well?

    - Can a normal phone application modify the NMR that is sent to the BSC/UNC?

    - I hear that Symbian OS v9 supports UMA. Is that the OS used in Nokia 6136?

    - Can this (Modifying of the NMR) be done using AT commands? (I don't think so..)

    Could someone please give me some insight on this?

    I'm a researcher in Mobile Communications

    Thanx

    The Nokia 6136 is not based on Symbian, but Nokia's proprietary real-time OS.

    Nokia's proprietary real-time OS -> it is called ISA (Intelligent Software Architecture).
