11.10-13GPPMobile Station (MS) conformance specificationPart 1: Conformance specificationTS

The present document describes the technical characteristics and methods of test for Mobile Stations (MS), for the pan-European digital cellular communications system and Personal Communication Systems (PCS) operating in the 900 MHz and 1 800 MHz band (GSM 900 and DCS 1 800), standardized by ETSI Technical Committee Special Mobile Group (SMG).

A subset of the tests is referenced in the GSM Common Technical Regulations (CTRs) and is used for regulatory conformance testing according to the EEC procedures for Telecommunications Terminal Equipment (TTE) type approval (EC Directive 91/263/EEC; also known as the "Terminal Directive" or "Second Phase Directive"). The remaining tests can be used to verify conformance with the GSM core technical specifications for those requirements that are not considered "essential" in the sense of the EC Directive 91/263/EEC (Article 4).

The present document covers the minimum characteristics considered necessary in order to provide sufficient performance for mobile equipment and to prevent interference to other services or to other users, and to the PLMNs.

It does not necessarily include all the characteristics which may be required by a user or subscriber, nor does it necessarily represent the optimum performance achievable.

It applies to the public land mobile radio service in the GSM 900 and DCS 1 800 systems, using constant envelope modulation and operating on radio frequencies in the 900 and 1 800 MHz bands respectively with a channel separation of 200 kHz and carrying 8 full rate channels or 16 half rate channels per carrier according to the TDMA principle.

The present document is part of the GSM-series of technical specifications. The present document neither replaces any of the other GSM technical specifications or GSM related TSs, nor is it created to provide full understanding of (or parts of) the GSM 900 and DCS 1 800 systems. The present document lists the requirements, and provides the methods of test for testing a MS for conformance to the GSM standard.

For a full description of the system, reference should be made to all the GSM technical specifications. Clause 2 provides a complete list of the GSM technical specifications, GSM related TSs, and TRs, on which this conformance test specifications is based.

The present document applies to the unit which includes the hardware to establish a connection across the radio interface.

If there is a difference between this conformance test TS, and any other GSM technical specification, then the other GSM technical specification shall prevail.
