Birdie was a mobile telecommunication service of the Deutsche Telekom, with a cordless hand-held device within a radius of 50 to 300 meters around a specially designated switching station (primarily telephone cells) outgoing telephone calls. With the same handset, you could also make and receive both incoming and outgoing calls at home, as usual, with a corresponding home station. Deutsche Telekom was planning to set up birdie exchange stations in busy places such as shopping centers, shopping malls, railway stations and airports.

The service tested in a field trial from October 1990 to September 1991 in Münster (analog, CT1 +) and Munich (digital, CT2) had no sufficient market chances in Germany anymore, according to the Telekom, especially against the background of the mobile telephone service D1 . Therefore the field trial was stopped in Munich in mid-1993.

In 1991, the monthly basic fee for Birdie was 8.80 DM (corresponding to today's current inflow of 7.13 Euro) and the customer paid an additional monthly DM 15 (corresponding to 12.15 Euro) for a home station. Calls routed via a birdie station cost 0.39 DM (corresponding to 0.32 Euro) per unit (local call to the standard tariff) during the field trial and calls made via the home station 0.23 DM (corresponding to 0.19 Euro).

The general term for this kind of mobile radio was Telepoint. In other countries of Europe and Asia, this service was partly carried out as a regular operation.

Telekom Motorola GmbH, based in Wiesbaden, Germany, is handing out 2000 handsets for Telepoint's "Birdie" telepath field trial in Munich. The "Silverlink 2000" models with a height of 15 centimeters, a width of 2.5 centimeters and a weight of 185 grams correspond to the standards CT2 and CAI. CT2 is the norm for second-generation cordless phones; CAI is the Common Air Interface, which has been developed in the UK and is now being specified as a European standard by the European Telecommunication Standard Institute (ETSI).

The Motorola Silverlink is not a real mobile phone but is also part of the history of telecommunications. At the end of the 80s - the beginning of the 90s was the time of the experiments and the birdie operation (telepoint network).

This technology could not be achieved because GSM networks were put into operation shortly afterwards.

In France (France Telecom Bi-Bop) and the Netherlands (PTT Greenpoint), there were similar networks.

The Motorola Silverlink 2000 was later offered only as cordless telephone and worked in the CT2 standard.

So I thought it should be shown on this website!
