The present document defines the service offered by the physical layer (3GPP TS 05‑series of Technical Specifications) of the MS‑BS interface (3GPP TS 05‑ and 04‑series of Technical Specifications). Its main objective is to be a guidance for the interface between the 3GPP Technical Specifications in the 05‑series and the 04‑series. It also specifies the format of signalling channels and the order of bit transmission.

As far as possible, the present document makes use of the layering principles of the Reference Model for Open System Interconnection (OSI) as contained in ITU-T Recommendations X.200 and X.210.

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.
