10.563GPPProject scheduling and open issues: GSM Cordless Telephony System CTS, Phase 1TS

The purpose of this document is to describe the schedules of the GSM Cordless Telephony System (CTS) standardisation process for its first phase. This document is also meant to describe open issues that are under discussion and the relevant technical decisions which are taken during the specification process. A comprehensive project plan forms the integral part of this document in chapter 4 (including a list of meetings relevant for CTS, Milestones, a list of open issues and an overall schedule)

This document is a ‘living document’ and permanently updated. Proposals for change shall be forwarded to the responsible rapporteur. The CTS specification rapporteurs should make sure that this document can always reflect the latest status of work.

This document has been introduced at the late phase of CTS phase 1, stage 1. During this definition phase several STCs besides SMG1 have already been involved (SMG2, SMG12, SMG10), however from stage 2 definition on a documented co-ordination of the standardisation seems to be essential as the work item is or soon will be handled in almost every SMG STC (see chapter 2.6).

The summary of the CTS work item progress since the introduction of CTS ad SMG#21 is reflected in chapter 2.
