3GPP51.010-1Mobile Station (MS) conformance specificationPart 1: Conformance specificationTS

The present document describes the technical characteristics and methods of test for Mobile Stations (MS), for the Pan European digital cellular communications system and Personal Communication Systems (PCS) operating in the 400 MHz, 700 MHz, 810 MHz, 850 MHz, 900 MHz, 1 800 MHz and 1 900 MHz band (GSM 450, GSM 480, GSM 710, GSM 750, T-GSM 810, GSM 850, R-GSM 900, ER-GSM 900, GSM 900, DCS 1 800 and PCS 1 900), standardized by ETSI Special Mobile Group (SMG).

The present document is valid for MS implemented according to GSM Phase2 or Phase2+ R96, or R97, or R98, or R99 or 3GPP Release 4 or 3GPP Release 5 or 3GPP Release 6, 3GPP Release 7, 3GPP Release 8, 3GPP Release 9, 3GPP Release 10, 3GPP Release 11 or 3GPP Release 12.

A subset of the tests is referenced in the GSM Common Technical Regulations (CTRs) and is used for regulatory conformance testing according to the EEC procedures for Telecommunications Terminal Equipment (TTE) type approval (EC Directive 91/263/EEC; also known as the "Terminal Directive" or "Second Phase Directive"). The remaining tests can be used to verify conformance with the GSM core technical specifications for those requirements that are not considered "essential" in the sense of the EC Directive 91/263/EEC (Article 4).

The present document covers the minimum characteristics considered necessary in order to provide sufficient performance for mobile equipment and to prevent interference to other services or to other users, and to the PLMNs.

It does not necessarily include all the characteristics which may be required by a user or subscriber, nor does it necessarily represent the optimum performance achievable.

It applies to the public land mobile radio service in the GSM systems named above, using constant envelope modulation and operating on radio frequencies in the frequency bands listed above respectively with a channel separation of 200 kHz and carrying 8 full rate channels or 16 half rate channels per carrier according to the TDMA principle.

The present document is part of the GSM-series of technical specifications. The present document neither replaces any of the other GSM technical specifications or GSM related ETSs or ENs, nor is it created to provide full understanding of (or parts of) GSM systems. The present document lists the requirements, and provides the methods of test for testing a MS for conformance to the GSM standard.

For a full description of the system, reference should be made to all the GSM technical specifications or GSM related ETSs or ENs. Clause 2 provides a complete list of the GSM technical specifications, GSM related ETSs, ENs, and ETRs, on which this conformance test specifications is based.

The present document applies to the unit which includes the hardware to establish a connection across the radio interface.

If there is a difference between this conformance document, and any other GSM technical specification or GSM related ETS or EN, or 3GPP TS, then the other GSM technical specification or GSM related ETS or EN or 3GPP TS shall prevail.
