Advanced Mobile Phone Service is an analog system that was first deployed in 1984. Advanced Mobile Phone Service; the standard for analog cellular telephones; uses a frequency-modulated transmission and frequency spacing to separate user transmission; operates in the 800MHz band. To send data a modem is required on both ends creating a circuit connection. The geographical area is divided into adjacent, non-overlapping, hexagonal-shaped "cells." Each cell has its own transmitter and receiver (called a base station) to communicate with the mobile units in that cell; a mobile switching station coordinates the handoff of mobile units crossing cell boundaries. Portions of the radio spectrum are reused, greatly expanding system capacity but also increasing infrastructure complexity and cost.* AMPS is the only ubiquitous standard for North America* Most digital cellular phones have AMPS fallback mode
