02.023GPPBearer Services (BS) Supported by a GSM Public Land Mobile Network (PLMN)TS

The present document defines a set of Bearer Services to be provided to GSM PLMN subscribers by a GSM PLMN itself and in connection with other networks. The present document should also be used as a reference for defining the corresponding required mobile network capabilities which are specified by means of the "GSM PLMN connection type" concept, defined in GSM 03.10 [4].

The recommended provision of the Bearer Services is under the control of the GSM MoU and is out of the scope of ETSI TC-SMG.

Bearer Services not included in the present document that require modifications to the GSM signalling specifications should not be introduced unilaterally by a mobile network operator.
