07.073GPPAT Command set for GSM Mobile Equipment (ME)Release 1998TS

The present document specifies a profile of AT commands and recommends that this profile be used for controlling Mobile Equipment (ME) functions and GSM network services from a Terminal Equipment (TE) through Terminal Adaptor (TA). The command prefix +C is reserved for Digital Cellular in ITU‑T Recommendation V.25ter [14]. The present document has also the syntax details used to construct these extended GSM commands. Commands from ITU‑T Recommendation V.25ter [14] and existing digital cellular standards (TIA IS‑99 [15] and TIA IS‑135 [16]) are used whenever applicable. Some of the new commands are defined in such a way that they can be easily applied to ME of networks other than GSM. ITU‑T T.31 [11] and T.32 [12] fax AT commands may be used for GSM fax transmission from TE. GSM Short Message Service AT commands are defined in GSM 07.05 [24]. GPRS AT commands are defined in clause 10 of the present document.The present document assumes an abstract architecture comprising a TE (e.g. a computer) and a ME interfaced by a TA (see figure 1). The span of control of the defined commands should allow to handle any physical implementation that this abstract architecture may lead to:

‑ TA, ME and TE as three separate entities;

‑ TA integrated under the ME cover, and the TE implemented as a separate entity;

‑ TA integrated under the TE cover, and the ME implemented as a separate entity;

‑ TA and ME integrated under the TE cover as a single entity.

The commands described in the present document may be observed on the link between the TE and the TA. However, most of the commands retrieve information about the ME, not about the TA.

Figure  2: Setup

Interface between TE and TA is intended to operate over existing serial (ITU‑T Recommendation V.24) cables, infrared link, and all link types with similar behaviour. For correct operation many of the defined commands require eight bit data and therefore it is recommended that TE‑TA link is set to eight bits/ byte mode. (For infrared operation implementation refer informative references IrDA. For embedding AT commands and data during on-line data state refer TIA‑617/ITU-T V.80.) Interface between TA and ME is dependent on the interface in the ME.
