MSs that conform to Release 99 and support DARP shall support the following requirements in Release 6.

4.1 RF Requirements

The MS shall comply with the RF requirements for DARP specified in [1]. These requirements are:

Section 6.3: Reference interference level.

4.2 Signalling Requirements

The MS shall support the following information elements specified in [2]:

Section 10.5.1.7 Mobile Station Classmark 3, with the following exceptions:

  • Fields GSM 750 Associated Radio Capability, Extended DTM GPRS Multi Slot Class / Extended DTM EGPRS Multi Slot Class, High Multislot Capability, GERAN Iu mode Capabilities, T-GSM 400 Bands Supported / T-GSM 400 Associated Radio Capability, T-GSM 900 Associated Radio Capability and DTM GPRS High Multi Slot Class / Offset required / DTM EGPRS High Multi Slot Class shall be indicated as not present since they are not defined in Release 99. This is done by setting the indication bit to ‘0’.
  • Parameters UMTS 1.28 Mcps TDD Radio Access Technology Capability, GERAN Feature Package 1, GERAN Feature Package 2 and DTM Enhancements Capability shall be indicated as not supported since they are not defined in Release 99. This is done by setting the bit value ‘0’ for each of these parameters.
  • In addition, for DTM GPRS Multi Slot Class, the value ’11’ shall not be used since Multislot class 11 is not supported in Release 99; and for GMSK Multislot Power Profile and 8-PSK Multislot Power Profile, the value ’00’ shall be used as it indicates the same power reduction as defined in Release 99 except that the Release 99 MS might be transmitting at 1dB higher than indicated by this parameter.

Section 10.5.5.12a MS Radio Access Capability, with the following exceptions:

  • Fields Extended DTM GPRS Multi Slot Class / Extended DTM EGPRS Multi Slot Class, High Multislot Capability, GERAN Iu Mode Capabilities and DTM GPRS High Multi Slot Class / DTM EGPRS High Multi Slot Class shall be indicated as not present since they are not defined in Release 99. This is done by setting the indication bit to ‘0’.
  • Parameters UMTS 1.28 Mcps TDD Radio Access Technology Capability, GERAN Feature Package 1, Modulation based multislot class support, Multiple TBF Capability, Extended RLC/MAC Control Message Segmentation Capability, DTM Enhancements Capability and PS Handover Capability shall be indicated as not supported since they are not defined in Release 99. This is done by setting the bit value ‘0’ for each of these parameters.
  • In addition, for Access Technology Type, the values ‘1000’ through to ‘1011’ shall not be used since GSM 750, GSM T 380, GSM T 410 and GSM T 900 are not supported in Release 99; for DTM GPRS Multi Slot Class, the value ’11’ shall not be used since Multislot class 11 is not supported in Release 99; and for GMSK Multislot Power Profile and 8-PSK Multislot Power Profile, the value ’00’ shall be used as it indicates the same power reduction as defined in Release 99 except that the Release 99 MS might be transmitting at 1dB higher than indicated by this parameter.

NOTE: The lack of one or more of the fields following the Downlink Advanced Receiver Performance field in Mobile Station Classmark 3 IE or MS Radio Access Capability IE should not be considered as an error by the network. In this case the meaning "not supported" or "not present" should be assumed as indicated above.
