The terminology used in the present document is as follows:
‑ Idle mode:
In this mode the MS is not allocated any dedicated physical channel; it listens to the CCCH and the BCCH.
‑ Dedicated mode:
In this mode the MS is allocated a dedicated physical channel, at least containing two logical channels, only one of them being a SACCH.
– Packet mode :
In this mode the MS is ready to access and operate on a packet data physical channel. The packet mode includes two sub-states: packet wait state and packet transfer state (see 3GPP TS 04.60).
‑ Physical block:
The physical block is the minimal unit which can be transferred by the physical layer.
– Dedicated physical channel:
The physical blocks scheduled on the radio medium assigned to a dedicated connection with a MS.
– Packet data physical channel :
The physical blocks scheduled on the radio medium assigned to a shared usage between MSs for packet switched data traffic.
