GSM and Telecommunication Laboratory


International University of Sarajevo (IUS) is proud to announce that with the support of the telecommunication companies from Turkey, Turkcell and Ericsson, the first phase of construction of the new GSM laboratory was successfully completed. Currently in Bosnia and Herzegovina there is no such or similar laboratory which makes IUS unique when it comes to providing quality education and practical training in the field of mobile telecommunications.

The GSM laboratory will be primarily used for educational purposes, including practical work and laboratory exercises as well as training for technicians and engineers who want to learn more about the GSM technology. IUS will cooperate with mobile phone companies from Bosnia and Herzegovina and it will be able to offer training programs as well.

Additionally, master and Ph.D. graduates of the International University of Sarajevo will be able to use the GSM Laboratory for various researches necessary for their work which may result with publication of scientific papers in their fields of study.

Apart from the GSM equipment, the laboratory has extra space for lectures and professional conferences with all the necessary audio / visual equipments. IUS will regularly add new equipment in the GSM Laboratory as soon as new mobile technologies are developed. This will contribute to maintaining high quality of education and research in the field of mobile telecommunications.

 IUS will continue to create and implement projects that are aimed at training students to work with the most modern technical equipment in the future.

GSM (Global System for Mobile Communications) is a standard set developed by the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) to describe protocols for second generation (2G) digital cellular networks used by mobile phones. It became the de facto global standard for mobile communications.

The GSM and Network laboratory is equipped with modern GSM and Network tools with generous donations of Turkish  telecummunication company, TURKCELL. 

The GSM and Network Laboratory includes the following state of the art GSM utulities to simulate a real GSM network:

Base Station Subsystem

Network and Switching Subsystem

Operations support system (OSS)





This laboratory will serve the students of the EE and CS Programs in telecommunication and networking area and increase their practical know-how on the field.
