Common Packet Channel

This is a contention based UMTS channel used for transmission of bursty data traffic. This channel only exists in FDD (Frequency Division Duplex) mode and only in the uplink direction. The common packet channel is shared by the UE (User Equipment) in a cell and therefore, it is a common resource. The CPCH employs fast power control.
