1  Scopep. 5

The present document contains technical performance objectives that should be met for the fixed infrastructure of GSM PLMNs. Concerning transmission delay for the PLMN in clause 4, the requirements should also be met by GSM Mobile Stations (MS)s.
These performance design objectives are applicable to all implementations at all points in the growth cycle up to the maximum size. These reference loads and performance objectives may be used by manufacturers in designing GSM PLMNs and by Administrations or Recognised Private Operating Agencies (RPOA)s in evaluating a specific design or for comparing different designs for potential use in the Administration's or RPOA's intended implementation.

1.1  Referencesp. 5

The following documents contain provisions which, through reference in this text, constitute provisions of the present document.
  • References are either specific (identified by date of publication, edition number, version number, etc.) or non specific.
  • For a specific reference, subsequent revisions do not apply.
  • For a non-specific reference, the latest version applies. In the case of a reference to a 3GPP document (including a GSM document), a non-specific reference implicitly refers to the latest version of that document in the same Release as the present document.

For terminology and architecture for GSM PLMNs see TS 23.002.
Interfaces, interface characteristics, connections through an MSC and ancillary functions of the MSC are defined in 3GPP TS 11.30 [16].
The functions supported by HLRs and VLRs are given in 3GPP TS 11.31 [17] and 11.32 [18].
Each MSC will be responsible for synchronisation, if required, with the fixed network to which it is connected. The requirements of ITU-T Recommendation Q.541 [7] should be observed.
Timing and synchronisation of the radio subsystem is specified in the TS 45.010.
