2.3 Definitions

For the purposes of the present document, the following terms and definitions apply.

Substream: Stream of data with explicit or implicit numbering between splitter and combine functions.

Channel: A physical full rate channel on the radio interface (TCH/F) independent of the contents.

A interface circuit: The 8 bits that constitute one 64 kbps circuit on the A interface.

A interface subcircuit: One specific bit position or one specific pair of bit positions within the A interface circuit.

EDGE channel: A general term referring to channels based on 8PSK modulation; i.e. TCH/F28.8, TCH/F32.0, and TCH/F43.2.
