Enhanced data rate for global evolution

EDGE takes GSM even further. GSM, which stands for Global System for Mobile communications, reigns as the world’s most widely used cell phone technology. EDGE, which stands for Enhanced Data rates for GSM Evolution, is a faster version of GSM. EDGE is a high-speed 3G technology that was built upon the GSM standard

Enhanced data gsm environment EDGE is an enhanced version of GPRS which uses more modern transmission techniques to get marginally faster speeds over a 2.5G GSM network. The theoretical maximum download speed on EDGE is 236kbps versus 80kbps on GPRS - of course in reality you'd never get anywhere close to either speed. It's an extension to GSM networks just like GPRS, so it isn't considered 3G (and NextG is just one particular 3G network rather than a network type). Telstra's GSM network is the only network in Australia with EDGE support - so you can either use EDGE on Telstra's GSM network with a 2G Telstra SIM, or while outside 3G coverage on a Telstra or 3 service.

EDGE means 'enhanced gprs rate for gsm evolution'.in short it is a digital mobile phone technology that allows improved data transmission rates as a backward compatible extension of gsm.it is considered as a pre 3g radio technology.and it can be used for any packet switches application such as internet connection.

EDGE technology is a modulation technique for GSM networks. An Enhanced DataRates for GSM Evolution (EDGE) is used to increase network capacity and data rates in mobile networks. EDGE provides data rates up to 384 Kbps.EDGE stands for 'Enhanced Data GSM Environment'.EDGE is a technology promoted by Ericsson for high speed data transfer over existing GSM networks, without the need to install new equipment -- a software upgrade is sufficient. A network converted to EDGE will allow speeds of up to 384 Kbps or higher, which is 6 times more than what can be reached with an ordinary land line modem.

Enhanced Data Rates for GSM Evolution OR U CAN ALSO CALL IT EGPRS.... USING EDGE WE USE OUR PHONE AS A MODEM AND USING INTERNET ON PC(PERSONAL COMPUTER....) EDGE can be used for any packet switched application, such as an Internet connection. EDGE-delivered data services create a broadband internet-like experience for the mobile phone user. FOR MORE DETAILS ABOUT EDGER READ FROM HERE http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/EDGE THIS FACILITY IS AVAILABLE IN MOSTLY ALL PHONE OF N SERIES AND E SERIES U CAN ALSO GOT IN CHEAP PHONE LIKE... NOKIA 3110 CLASSIC OR IN 3710 FOLD ALSO....

EDGE (Enhanced Data GSM Environment) is a faster version the Global System for Mobile ( GSM) wireless service designed to deliver data at rates up to 384 Kbps and enable the delivery of multimedia and other broadband applications to mobile phone and computer users. The EDGE standard is built on the existing GSM standard, using the same time-division multiple access (TDMA) frame structure and existing cell arrangements. Ericsson notes that its base stations can be updated with software. EDGE became commercially available in 2001. It is regarded as an evolutionary standard on the way to Universal Mobile Telecommunications Service (

DGE, which stands for Enhanced Data rates for GSM Evolution, is a faster version of GSM. EDGE is a high-speed 3G technology that was built upon the GSM standard. EDGE networks are designed to deliver multimedia applications such as streaming television, audio and video to mobile phones at speeds up to 384 Kbps. Such speeds still pale in comparison, though, to standard DSL and high-speed cable access today. EDGE networks are designed to deliver multimedia applications such as streaming television, audio and video to mobile phones at speeds up to 384 Kbps. Such speeds still pale in comparison, though, to standard DSL and high-speed cable access today. EDGE delivers a boost of more than three times the capacity and performance over GSM. EDGE delivers a boost of more than three times the capacity and performance over GSM. The EDGE standard was first launched in the United States in 2003 by Cingular, which is now AT&T, on top of the GSM standard. AT&T, T-Mobile and Rogers Wireless in Canada all use EDGE networks.

EDGE/EGPRS is implemented as a bolt-on enhancement for 2.5G GSM/GPRS networks, making it easier for existing GSM carriers to upgrade to it. EDGE is a superset to GPRS and can function on any network with GPRS deployed on it, provided the carrier implements the necessary upgrade. EDGE requires no hardware or software changes to be made in GSM core networks. EDGE-compatible transceiver units must be installed and the base station subsystem needs to be upgraded to support EDGE. If the operator already has this in place, which is often the case today, the network can be upgraded to EDGE by activating an optional software feature. Today EDGE is supported by all major chip vendors for both GSM and WCDMA/HSPA.
