ABSTRACT
This article reports that European mobile operators are about to start widespread use of the EDGE GSM enhancement technology in their networks as support for the rollout of 3G services over the next two years. During the rollout of 3G services it is inevitable that W-CDMA networks will have to operate alongside existing GSM infrastructure with user handsets switching between the two systems. It is believed that the services degradation switching from 3G to GPRS GSM will be unacceptable for operators so they will deploy EDGE networks, which are three times faster than GPRS, as cover during rollout.
