Title: Method and device for controlling combined UMTS/GSM/EDGE radio systems

Abstract: In a method for controlling radio systems designed for transmission/reception of signals based on at least two radio standards with different time patterns, with signals based on one of these radio standards being processed in each radio system, at least one synchronization signal is produced in the first and/or second radio system for synchronization, respectively, is transmitted to the respective other radio system and system information associated with that particular radio system is in each case stored in that radio system to which the synchronization signal is transmitted. The stored system information can be read by the respective other radio system via an interface, and times for transmission of signals can be calculated by means of the information which has been read. The transmission of signals or the production of events in a radio system can be enabled or inhibited by means of a signal from the other radio systems.
