I'm trying to understand how a Mobile Station get the information about the cell from the BTS or the NodeB. The information I am looking for is :
Mobile Country Code (MCC) Mobile Network Code (MNC) Location Area Code (LAC) Cell ID (CID)
What I have found is that the information about the cell is located in the Broadcast Control Channel (BCCH), at least for GSM. Am I wrong? What about 3G and 4G networks?
