This TS defines the requirements for the transceiver of the pan European digital cellular telecommunications systems GSM.
Requirements are defined for two categories of parameters:
those that are required to provide compatibility between the radio channels, connected either to separate or common antennas, that are used in the system. This category also includes parameters providing compatibility with existing systems in the same or adjacent frequency bands;
those that define the transmission quality of the system.
This TS defines RF characteristics for the Mobile Station (MS) and Base Station System (BSS). The BSS will contain Base Transceiver Stations (BTS), which can be normal BTS, micro BTS or pico-BTS. The precise measurement methods are specified in TS 51.010‑1
and TS 51.021
Unless otherwise stated, the requirements defined in this EN apply to the full range of environmental conditions specified for the equipment (see annex D).
