05.083GPPRadio subsystem link controlTS

The present document specifies the Radio sub‑system link control implemented in the Mobile Station (MS), Base Station System (BSS) and Mobile Switching Centre (MSC) of the digital cellular telecommunications systems GSM.

Unless otherwise specified, references to GSM also include operation in any band.

1.1 References

The following documents contain provisions which, through reference in this text, constitute provisions of the present document.

  • References are either specific (identified by date of publication, edition number, version number, etc.) or non‑specific.
  • For a specific reference, subsequent revisions do not apply.
  • For a non-specific reference, the latest version applies. In the case of a reference to a 3GPP document (including a GSM document), a non-specific reference implicitly refers to the latest version of that document in the same Release as the present document.
