This ETSI Technical Report (TR) establishes the technical procedure for the comparative evaluation of candidate
technologies for the UTRA. The UTRA includes the handling of the representative bearers as defined in UMTS 21.01, i.e. Open System Interconnection (OSI) layers 1-3. It establishes the criteria based upon the requirements contained in UMTS 21.01.
The primary purpose of this [report] is to facilitate the comparison of different candidates between
milestones M1 and M2 of the UTRA definition procedure (Refinement and synthesis phase). It will also be used after
milestone M2 (Definition phase) and in the submission of the candidate to ITU. The scope of this report is not to make the actual choice but to define how the technical evaluation will be performed.
