Personal communications network (PCN) is the European digital cellular mobile telephone network, developed in accordance with GSM standards. The PCN system was first initiated by Lord Young, UK Secretary of State for Trade and Industry, in 1988. The main characteristics of PCN are as follows: PCN uses the DCS-1800 systems, which is similar to GSM, but up converts the frequency to 1.7–1.88 GHz, therefore the network structure, the signal structure and the transmission characteristics are similar between PCN and GSM, but operational frequencies are different.
