There are three different ways to transfer information on a wireless network using radio signals.
GSMC: The Global System for Mobile Communication (GSMC) is the most popular transmission technology used on wireless standard for mobile phones in the world. This system transfers information by compressing the information and then using a single radio channel from the available channels to transmit the data.
CDMA: Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) is a popular transmission technology. This technology transfers information between wireless devices by distribution the data over all the available radio channels.
TDMA: Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) divides one radio channel between multiple devices. Each device tasks turn using the channel. TDMA is used most often by businesses that offer digital cellular communications.
