GPRS

  • GPRS stands for General Packet Radio Service, mainly devised for data communication between wireless devices. Data communication may include email,internet, MMS, SMS etc.
  • GPRS technology is slowly replaced by current CDMA and LTE based solutions.
  • GPRS is the sister technology of GSM (Global System for Mobile Communications) which is used for voice calls.
  • The key to GPRS is that it breaks data into small pieces known as packets. If there is a problem with the connection, the receiving device can issue a request for the missing packets to be resent without the need to start the entire data transmission again. This mirrors the way data transfers over the Internet.
