16. Supplementary memorandum submitted
by Gregory Smith
As you may recall during the Select Committee
inquiry it was mentioned about the lack of skills and experience
for examining and handling mobile telephone evidence. Below are
the list of Trew MTE courses, which will now include for 2006
knowledge skills and experience that will take account of Committee's
I thought the Committee may wish to see mine
and others comments at the inquiry were not just statements, they
can be put into practice.
Trew MTE runs numerous courses that are device
specific and general.
Whilst GSM (Global System for Mobile) communications
is a Pan-European standard (at since inception 1991) it has gained
global appeal and adopted in many countries around the World.
Given its global adoption GSM is now a global digital wireless
standard. GSM is known as 2G (Second Generation digital wireless
3G (Third Generation digital wireless technology
system) is a development of the 3GPP (Third Generation Project
Partnership) that brings together international operators and
device manufacturers. Whilst 3G has been technically realised
and technically implemented (rolled out for use) it is still evolving
as a multi-media digital wireless system and its global adoption
is expected (when compared with GSM) to take about 10 years. 3G
it is said is an International standard.
