22.0603GPPGeneral Packet Radio Service (GPRS)Release 17Service descriptionStage 1TS

This TS defines the stage one description of the General Packet Radio Service (GPRS). Stage one is an overall service description, primarily from the service subscriber’s and user’s points of view, but does not deal with the details of the human interface itself. This TS includes information applicable to network operators, service providers and terminal, switch and data base manufacturers.

This TS contains the core requirements for the packet switched networks specified by 3GPP which are sufficient to provide a complete service. It defines a set of bearer services that provide packet mode transmission within the PLMN and interwork with external networks.

The term GPRS shall be used in this document to refer the GPRS service offered via GERAN and UTRAN and the PS Domain of the 3G PLMN.

The GPRS shall not prevent the user’s operation of other 3GPP services.
