The directional radiation characteristic of the aerial system (1) of the fixed station of a mobile radio-telephone system operating with a digital time-multiplex (TDMA) process is matched to the current location of the mobile station which is transmitting or being received at that time. The invention can advantageously be used in radio-telephones on the DECT standard.



Mobile base station antenna characteristic variable

The invention relates to a base station according to the preamble of claim 1.

The range in a mobile radio system, for example a schnurlo¬ sen telephone, which consists of a base station and one or several mobile stations ren is essentially determined by its transmit power and its receiver sensitivity. In this case, the transmission power is evenly generally in all directions, that is at least approximately point-symmetrical abge¬ irradiated to be universally usable in any environment on the one hand and in each direction the same Reich¬ to the other to achieve wide. However, a single time seeks be¬, then from the perspective of the base station, ie in to Example of the base station of a cordless telephone, only a fraction of the transmission power in the direction of that are available at this moment in operation the mobile station, ie in to Example the handset of the cordless phone, radiated. The vast majority of the transmit power is not used, however, it acts to other devices even disturbing. The range of radiation is limited by the transmit power, the path loss and the received power. The

Path loss is a fixed factor and can not be reduced. The transmit power can not be increased arbitrarily. In principle, the received power and thus the range, by a directed transmission, so that by using a bundled directional antenna wel¬ che the available energy is concentrated in a particular direction radiates be increased. The use of directional antennas in radio systems for this purpose is corresponding to general my known.

The object of the invention is, by designing the Fest¬ station an advantageous possibility to improve the transmission response between the Festεtation and Mo¬ bilstationen a mobile radio system, in particular to provide a Schnurlostelefonε.

This object is at a fixed station in accordance with the Oberbe¬ handle of claim 1 achieved by the features specified in the characterizing part of this patent claim.

Advantageous further developments and embodiments indicated in the patent claim l base station are given in the claims 2 to. 6

In the following, a base station according to the invention is explained with reference to an erläu- shown in a block diagram, FIG.

In this base station of a Mobilfunksystemε it may, for example, to the base station of a standard of operating according to the DECT standard cordless telephone.

The fixed station shown comprises an antenna device l, which is connected via an antenna switch 2 to either a transmitter 3 or to a receiver. 4 The antenna device 1 is provided as a plurality of individual radiating antenna up oriented group (array) formed whose Strah¬ lung characteristic to a directional beam pattern ge can be formed. Depending on the connection and disconnection of individual radiating antenna of this group and / or depending on the activation of certain phase relationships between these individual emitters, a suitable directional beam pattern can be prepared, and these can then be oriented in different directions.

The fixed station shown in the figure includes the input position of the radiation characteristic of the antenna device l a control unit. 5 The shape of a a focused directional beam having radiation characteristics of this arrival antenna device 1 is always adapted to the instantaneous location of those mobile station is sent to the out under connection of the transmitter 3 at the relevant time or the forth under connection of the receiver 4 at the relevant time is received. The drive data for the Ein¬ position of the respective radiation characteristic of the antenna device 1 are based on an algorithm from the measured in the control unit 5 in a measuring device 6 Empfangsfeidstärke and / or directly from the received data using a digi- tal device 7, in which

Bit / burst errors are detected, slides. er¬ the actual computational evaluation for determining the drive data follows in the algorithm performing the central part 8 of the control unit 5 are included in the control unit 5 in a tank supply direction 9, the corresponding radiation patterns for 1 to n mobile stations in the form of drive data for the Anten¬ neneinrichtung l cached.

In the storage device 9 of the control unit 1, two radiation characteristics can be abge¬ stores in an advantageous manner, the difference of which corresponds to only a minor change in the characteristic. Hereby it is achieved that there is received interrupts are prevented by fading holes at a non-moving mobile station.
