Can anyone explain the GSM cell id format? What do the digits mean?
Thanks.30th July 2003 at 03:43 #36217NguyenGuest
CI (cell identity) = xXYYZ, where
xX: BSC number
YY: BTS number within the BSC
Z: Cell number within the BTS
Z=0 for the omni site, Z=(1-3) for the sectoral site.
CGI (cell global identification) = MCC-MNC-LAC-CI, where
MCC=AAA: mobile country code
MNC=BB: mobile network code
LAC=ccCCC: location area code
CI: cell id (see above)
For example, CGI = 452 02 341 5012
452=MCC of Vietnam
02=MNC of VinaPhone network
This is the second cell of the BTS-1 in the BSC-5.30th July 2003 at 14:41 #36218PatGuest
Thanks Nguyen. I have one other question. Part of the overhead messaging contains Cell Allocation Information and Neighbor Cell Information. Each has a Number of Channels and then a channel list. Do you know what the differences are? I understand the neighbor list, but I’m a little confused on the cell allocation list.

I know some web site that provide the training and certifications: http://www.inacon.com, http://www.wraycastle.com, http://www.pmcg-consultancy.co.uk, etc. However you cannot download any document from these sites.
If anyone knows where to download GSM technical/training document for free, pls kindly advise.11th August 2011 at 08:15 #36221palanethraGuest

please help.11th August 2011 at 12:21 #36222pixGuest
no, the LAC and Cell ID are unique values that are not “contained” into lat/long, MNC and MCC.

Is it normal to find a gsm Cell without any code? No cid no mcc no mcc or any other code. I think it could be a gsm spy Cell.
