05.013GPPGeneral descriptionPhysical layer on the radio pathTS

The present document is an introduction to the 05 series of the digital cellular telecommunications systems GSM technical specifications. It is not of a mandatory nature, but consists of a general description of the organization of the physical layer with reference to the technical specifications where each part is specified in detail. It introduces furthermore, the reference configuration that will be used throughout this series of technical specifications.
