 Base Station Subsystem - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Base Station Subsystem (BSS) is the section of a GSM network which is responsible for handling traffic and signalling between a mobile phone and the Network Switching Subsystem.
By using directional antennae on a base station, each pointing in different directions, it is possible to sectorise the base station so that several different cells are served from the same location.
This increases the traffic capacity of the base station (each frequency can carry eight voice channels) whilst not greatly increasing the interference caused to neighboring cells (in any given direction, only a small number of frequencies are being broadcast).

The switching node comprises means for the control of a first base station subsystem and a first interface for the connection to the first base station subsystem with a protocol corresponding to the connection specification used on the interface between the base station subsystem and the user equipment.
The necessary parameters in the set used in the protocol between a switching node and a base station subsystem are dependent on the connection specification between the user equipment and the base station subsystem because the protocol is adapted to the connection specification, i.
station subsystems use the same connection specification on the interface to the user, the protocol corresponding to this connection specification is selected and encapsulated in the messages between the switching nodes.

 Network Switching Subsystem - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Each Base Station in the network is served by exactly one VLR, hence a subscriber cannot be present in more than one VLR at a time.
Network Switching Subsystem is the component of a GSM system that carries out switching functions and manages the communications between mobile phones and the Public Switched Telephone Network.
The Network Switching Subsystem, also referred to as the GSM core network, usually refers to the circuit-switched core network, used for traditional GSM services such as voice calls, SMS, and Circuit Switched Data calls.

 BSS - Base Station System
In GSM the Base Station System is a term given to a BSC (Base Station Controller) and the BTS (Base Transceiver Station) associated with it.
Although not mandatory, through interpretation of the Abis interface standard BTS and BSC employed within a BSS will always be supplied by the same manufacturer.
The number of BTS associated with a BSC is dependent on the manufacturer.

 Cellular network - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Typically such systems use some kind of multiple access independently in each cell, so an early stage of such a handover (handoff) is to reserve a new channel for the mobile station on the new base station which will serve it.
In this case there must be clear coordination between the base station and the mobile station.
This can be used directly for distributing information to multiple mobiles, commonly, for example in mobile telephony systems, the most important use of broadcast information is to set up channels for one to one communication between the mobile transceiver and the base station.

 Overview of the Global System for Mobile Communications
The mobile station measures the signal strength or signal quality (based on the Bit Error Ratio), and passes the information to the Base Station Controller, which ultimately decides if and when the power level should be changed.
When a mobile station is switched on in a new location area, or it moves to a new location area or different operator's PLMN, it must register with the network to indicate its current location.
Each input bit is encoded as two output bits, based on a combination of the previous 4 input bits.

The Base Station Subsystem (BSS) section of the GSM network is fundamentally associated with communicating with the mobiles on the network.
The GMSC is thus in charge of obtaining the MSRN (Mobile Station Roaming Number) from the HLR based on the MSISDN (Mobile Station ISDN number, the "directory number" of a MS) and routing the call to the correct visited MSC.
The architecture of the GSM system with its hardware can broadly be grouped into three main areas: the mobile station, the base station subsystem, and the network subsystem.
