09.073GPPGeneral Requirements on Interworking between the Public Land Mobile Network (PLMN) and the Intergrated Services Digital Network (ISDN) or Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN)TS

This European Telecommunication Standard (ETS) identifies the Mobile‑services Switching Centre/Interworking Functions (MSC/IWFs) and requirements to support interworking between:

a) PLMN and PSTN

b) PLMN and ISDN

It is not possible to treat ISDN and PSTN as one type of network, even when both ISDN and PSTN subscribers are served by the same exchange because of the limitations of the PSTN subscribers access i.e. analogue connection without D‑channel signalling.

Within this ETS, the requirements for voice and non‑voice (data) calls are considered separately.
