9.1.30b COMPACT Synchronization channel information

3GPP44.018GSM/EDGE Radio Resource Control (RRC) protocolMobile radio interface Layer 3 specificationRelease 16TS

This message is sent on the CSCH, which is one of the broadcast channels (ref. 3GPP TS 45.002). Its purpose is to support the synchronization of a COMPACT mobile station to a BSS. It does not follow the basic format. Its length is 25 bits. The order of bit transmission is defined in 3GPP TS 44.004. See figure 9.1.30b.1 and table 9.1.30b.1.
