Random information on the term “___ Tacs”:
Total Access Communication System (TACS) and ETACS are mostly-obsolete variants of Advanced Mobile Phone System (AMPS) which was announced as the choice for the first two UK national cellular systems in February 1983, less than a year after the UK government announced the T&Cs for the two competing mobile phone networks in June 1982.
Vodafone (known then as Racal-Vodafone) opted for a £30 million turnkey contract from Ericsson (ERA) to design, build and set up its initial network of 100 base station sites.
Cellnet (then known Telecom Securicor Cellular Radio Ltd) used development labs in the facilities at General Electric (later made part of Motorola) based at Lynchburg, Virginia, United States. The reason Cellnet used the General Electric labs was because the AMPS system was already in development there, and the company had set up a production facility in readiness for AMPS production in 1985 which the Cellnet TACS was to share. In March 1984 development of prototypes began at General Electric. Production began in 1985 and General Electric produced 20,000 systems that year for Cellnet’s distribution in the UK. Production of what was to become the Motorola model were then made at Stotfold, Bedfordshire, England. This production facility continued making TACS until the advent of GSM.
Random information on the term “TIC”:
The Faculty of Computing, Engineering and the Built Environment (CEBE, formerly the Faculty of Technology, Engineering and the Environment or TEE) is the technology department of Birmingham City University, England, covering engineering programmes. It is located in the City Centre campus in the eastern half of the Millennium Point complex. Spanning five stories of the £114 million complex in the developing Eastside district, the centre offers courses in undergraduate and postgraduate education.
From September 2000, the Faculty of CEBE was previously known as the Technology Innovation Centre, but during 2008, the faculty began the process of rebranding and was temporarily known as Technology Innovation and Development until autumn 2009 when TIC was renamed to the Faculty of Technology, Engineering and the Environment. The faculty now includes the Department of Computing which has combined with TIC’s departments of software, networks, telecommunications and electronics; and the School of Property, Construction and Planning, forming four schools including School of Computing, Telecommunications and Networks (CTN); School of Digital Media Technology; School of Engineering, Design and Manufacturing Systems (EDMS); and School of Property, Construction and Planning. The rebranding coincides with the development of a new campus in the city’s Eastside regeneration scheme. In 2014, the faculty was again rebranded to be the Faculty of CEBE.
