The present document applies to Digital Fixed Radio Systems (DFRS) in point-to-point operation with integral and
external antennas in the frequency range of 1 GHz to 86 GHz corresponding to the appropriate frequency bands
1,4 GHz to 86 GHz as described in ETSI EN 302 217-2 [18], annex B to annex J.
The present document summarizes:
• all characteristics, principles and, of utmost importance, terms and definitions that are common to all
P-P equipment and antennas and its consultation is necessary when using all other parts of ETSI EN 302 217
series;
• all system-dependent requirements for Point-to-Point (P-P) equipment. These requirements are introduced in
two different clauses sub-sets:
- Main requirements are requirements that are also related to the "essential requirements" under
article 3.2 of Directive 2014/53/EU [i.1] and further detailed in the Harmonised Standard ETSI
EN 302 217-2 [18].
- Complementary requirements are requirements that are not related to essential requirements under
article 3.2 of Directive 2014/53/EU [i.1]. Nevertheless they have been commonly agreed for proper
system operation and deployment when specific deployment conditions or compatibility requirements are
present. Compliance to all or some of these requirements is left to manufacturer decision.
Technical background for most of the parameters and requirements referred to in this multi-part deliverable may be
found in ETSI TR 101 036-1 [i.16].
Health and safety requirements and EMC conditions and requirements are not considered in the ETSI EN 302 217
series.

Complete restructuring of the EN as “complementary” EN to Part 2-2. Reporting only the requirements considered “not essential” for R&TTED (e.g. BBER and signatures), for “special compatibility” (e.g. innermost channels masks and RX selectivity when common branching/antenna is used), for “good design practice” (e.g. antenna and feeder return loss, RX level range) Effort will be done for substituting band specific masks and signatures with parametric requirements (e.g. NFD or similar residual power in RX bandwidth) so as to possibly remove Annexes A to E (moving the so “generalised” requirements in the main body).

The present document specifies the essential requirements for point-to-point Digital Fixed Radio Systems (DFRS) operating in higher frequency bands, which propagation characteristics might be suitable for different simplified frequency planning (see example) rather than conventional link-by-link coordinated deployment. This would imply that administrations may apply either no co-ordination at all (i.e. the band usage is free and the user is responsible for detecting a suitable interference-free operating frequency) or simplified co-ordination procedures based on the knowledge of existing links (e.g. through a public national data base) so that the impact of a possible new link could be evaluated on the basis of budgetary considerations of typical equipment receiver performances (which will not
be considered related to essential requirements of article 3.2 of R&TTE Directive [1]). The bands in the scope of the present document, to which these frequency assignment procedures apply, are specifically referred in annexes UA through UC where the applicable equipment requirements are reported. EXAMPLE: The frequency band 58 GHz is proposed to be used by various technologies for uncoordinated use of the band. Besides the RF-channel selection procedure, specified in clause 4.2 to avoid unacceptable interference situations, this band, and those above up to ~63 GHz, also benefits from the high and stable atmospheric attenuation which suppresses efficiently distant interferers (about 10 dB/km to 15 dB/km at sea level), refer to Recommendation ITU-R P.676 [i.13]. The present document is intended to cover the provisions of Directive 1999/5/EC [1] (R&TTE Directive) regarding article 3.2, which states that "… radio equipment shall be so constructed that it effectively uses the spectrum allocated to terrestrial/space radio communications and orbital resources so as to avoid harmful interference". In addition to the present document, other ENs that specify technical requirements in respect of essential requirements
under other parts of article 3 of the R&TTE Directive [1] will apply to equipment within the scope of the present document.
NOTE: A list of such ENs is included on the web site http://www.newapproach.org/.
In order to technically cover different market and network requirements, with an appropriate balance of performance to cost and effective and appropriate use of the radio spectrum, the present document, together with EN 302 217-4-2 [10], offers system types and antennas alternatives, for selection by administrations, operators and manufacturers dependent on the desired use of the radio spectrum and network/market requirements, those options include:
• channel separation alternatives (as provided by the relevant CEPT Recommendation);
• implemented procedure for free radio channel selection;
• antenna directivity class alternatives (for different network density requirement).
The present document is mainly intended to cover fixed radio equipment without integral antennas. However, it also applies to fixed radio systems products with integral antennas, for which all the technical requirements included in the present document and in EN 302 217-4-2 [10] apply. For more background information on the equipment and antenna parameters here identified as relevant to article 3.2 of R&TTE Directive [1] see EG 201 399 [i.2] and TR 101 506 [i.7]. For the purposes of the present document two equipment Types are specified, when appropriate, depending on specific
network requirements:
• Type A: Digital equipment which apply the standardized automatic RF-channel selection procedure (see
clause 4.2) for interference avoidance and error performance enhancement.
• Type B: Equipment not required to have automatic RF-channel selection procedure.

The present document summarizes all system-dependent requirements for Point-to-Point (P-P) equipment in applications deployed in bands where frequency co-ordination is generally applied. These requirements are introduced in two different clauses sub-sets:
- Main requirements are requirements that are also related to the "essential requirements" under article 3.2 of the R&TTE Directive [1] and further detailed in EN 302 217-2-2 [16].
- Complementary requirements are requirements that are not related to essential requirements under article 3.2 of the R&TTE Directive [1]. Nevertheless they are considered having been commonly agreed for proper system operation and deployment when specific deployment conditions or compatibility requirements are present. Compliance to all or some of these requirements is made on a voluntary basis. Description and limits for parameters relevant to essential requirements under article 3.2 of R&TTE Directive [1] are given in EN 302 217-2-2 [16]. For other system-dependent parameters where standardization is required but that do not affect the R&TTE Directive "essential requirements" mentioned above, description and limits are detailed in the present document in the annexes A to G, subdivided by frequency band or specific applications. The present document deals with Radio Frequency (RF) and base-band equipment characteristics; antenna system requirements are covered in EN 302 217-4-1 [i.4] and EN 302 217-4-2 [i.5]. The present document does not cover test procedures and test conditions which are set out in EN 301 126-1 [14]. As the maximum transmission rate in a given bandwidth depends on system spectral efficiency, different equipment classes are defined in EN 302 217-2-2 [16]. The spectral efficiency classes are indicative only and do not imply any constraint to the actual modulation format, provided that all the requirements in the relevant parts of this EN 302 217 series are met. In some cases, where within the same spectral efficiency class there are different applications, (e.g. for multi-channel trunk or single channel operation), that justify different radio frequency parameters, two different equipment "types" (e.g. type 1 and 2) are provided. Guidance on the definition of radio parameters relevant to the essential requirements under article 3.2 of R&TTE Directive [1] for DFRS may be found in TR 101 506 [i.2]. Technical background for most of the parameters and requirements referred to in this EN 302 217 series may be found
in TR 101 036-1 [i.1].

The present document specifies the essential requirements for point-to-point Digital Fixed Radio Systems (DFRS) operating in higher frequency bands, which propagation characteristics might be suitable for different frequency planning (see note 1). This would imply that, besides conventional link-by-link coordinated deployment, administrations may apply either no co-ordination at all (i.e. the band usage is free and the user is responsible for detecting a suitable interference-free operating frequency) or simplified co-ordination procedures based on the knowledge of existing links (e.g. through a public national data base) so that the impact of a possible new link could be evaluated on the basis of budgetary considerations of typical equipment receiver performances (which will not be considered related to essential requirements of article 3.2 of R&TTED [1]).

The Radiation Pattern Envelope (RPE) of  EN 302 217-4-2 v1.3.1 range 7 is based on a relative mask, while the RPS's for the other frequency bands are absolute masks. Evaluation of possible systems in the 71 GHz to 86 GHz range has shown, that the relative RPE mask is less appropriate both for the intended smaller antenna diameters as well as for interference into EESS. This new WI will define adequate RPE classes in the  range 71 GHz to 86 GHz.

To amend EN 302 217-3 in order to incorporate equipment for the frequency band 64-66 GHz.
The present document specifies the essential requirements for point-to-point Digital Fixed Radio Systems (DFRS) operating in higher frequency bands, which might not require detailed link-by-link co-ordinated frequency planning; this imply either no co-ordination at all (i.e. the band usage is free and the user is responsible for detecting a suitable interference-free operating frequency) or simplified co-ordination procedures implying the knowledge of existing links (e.g. through a public national database) so that the impact of a possible new link could be evaluated on the basis of budgetary considerations of typical equipment receiver parameters (which will not be considered related to essential requirements of art 3.2 R&TTE Directive [1]).

The EN 302 217 series introduces requirements for systems (equipment and antennas) that were formerly covered by EN 301 751 [20] and that are technically equivalent or less stringent requirements. Therefore, from a strictly technical point of view, it is expected that equipment already conforming to the previous EN 301 751 [20] or previous versions of the present harmonized standard, would not need a new test report for re-assessment of essential requirements according this new multi-part deliverable; however, legal implications with respect to the declaration of conformity and equipment labelling are not in the scope of the present document. In addition to the present document, other ENs that specify technical requirements in respect of essential requirements

It is intended to cover the provisions of the R&TTE Directive [1] regarding article 3.2, which states that "… radio equipment shall be so constructed that it effectively uses the spectrum allocated to terrestrial/space radio communications and orbital resources so as to avoid harmful interference". The EN 302 217 series introduces requirements for systems (equipment and antennas) that were formerly covered by EN 301 751 (see bibliography) and that are technically equivalent or less stringent requirements (see note 1). Care has been taken so that such variations will not affect any frequency planning assumption for already deployed networks. Therefore, from a strictly technical point of view, it is expected that equipment already conforming to EN 301 751(see bibliography) or previous versions of the present harmonized standard, would not need a new test report for re-assessment of essential requirements according to the present document (see note 1). However, legal implications with respect to declaration of conformity and equipment labelling are outside the scope of the present document.
NOTE 1: The only exception is with respect to class 5A equipments for system D.7 (see annex D) and for systems E.1, E.2 and E.3 (see annex E) for which a previous design objective, in EN 301 751 (see bibliography), has been transformed, in this EN 302 217-2-2, into a more stringent RSL versus BER. In this case a supplementary test report might be required (e.g. in case the technical construction file, made for declaration of conformity to EN 301 751 (see bibliography), does not give evidence of enough margin to fulfil the requirements of the present document).
In addition to the present document, other ENs that specify technical requirements in respect of essential requirements under other parts of article 3 of the R&TTE Directive [1] will apply to equipment within the scope of the present document.

This multi-part deliverable is applicable to fixed digital MultiPoint (MP) radio systems, where multipoint encompasses both Point-to-MultiPoint (P-MP) and MultiPoint-to-MultiPoint (MP-MP) network architectures.(Although MP-MP systems may, in principle, be realized using directional or sectorial/omnidirectional antennas, only those using directional antennas are within the scope of this multi-part deliverable). The applicability of this multi-part deliverable to MP equipment is governed by the definition of a number of system profiles that define the set of consistent requirements (see clause 6) to which equipment shall conform. The supplier
shall uniquely identify in the technical construction file which Equipment Classification(s) (EqC) (among those limited sets defined in clause 6 and annex A) apply to his equipment and assess it consequently. The individual parts of this multi-part deliverable are applicable as follows:
The present document includes for multipoint radio systems (equipment and antennas, whether integrated or not):
• Descriptions and parameters of the characteristics of multipoint radio systems.
• Cross-references to EN 302 326-2 [6] and EN 302 326-3 [7] where limits for essential parameters for
conformance with article 3.2 of the R&TTE Directive are concerned.
• Specifications which may be complied with on a voluntary basis (normative).
• Recommended limits for other parameters (informative).
• Informative text which assists in the understanding of the specification.
EN 302 326-2 [6] includes for multipoint radio equipment (whether or not integrated with an antenna):
• Essential requirements for conformance with article 3.2 of the R&TTE Directive.
EN 302 326-3 [7] includes for antennas used with multipoint radio systems (whether or not integrated with the
equipment):
• Essential requirements for conformance with article 3.2 of the R&TTE Directive.
For Administration's guidance when notifying their regulated Interfaces in accordance with article 4.1 of the R&TTE Directive [1], annex B provides explanatory considerations on the applicability of the TCAM-RIG format for P-P Fixed Links. An example of such a notification is also provided. Annex H has been elaborated in co-ordination with the CEPT ECC WG SE.

The present document is intended to cover the provisions of the R&TTE Directive [2] regarding article 3.2, which states that "[...] radio equipment shall be so constructed that it effectively uses the spectrum allocated to terrestrial/space radio communications and orbital resources so as to avoid harmful interference". The present document is applicable to the essential requirements of equipment (including equipment with integral antennas) used in Multipoint (MP) Digital Fixed Radio Systems (DFRS). The present document, together with EN 302 326-3 [12] are intended to replace and supersede, after a suitable transition period, the harmonized EN 301 753 (see bibliography) for all multipoint equipment and antennas. The present document and EN 302 326-3 [12] introduce rationalization among systems conforming to previous EN 301 753 (see bibliography) referencing a number of ENs which, being developed at different times, might have specified slightly different requirements. However, care has been taken so that such variations will not affect any frequency planning assumption for already deployed networks. Therefore, unless specifically mentioned, these new requirements, whenever different from those single ENs, are considered completely "equivalent". Therefore mixed use of equipment conforming to the present document and to those previous one will not change, in practice, any frequency planning rule in any network. Therefore, from a strictly technical point of view, in most cases it is expected that equipment already conforming to the previous versions of Harmonized EN 301 753 (see bibliography), would not need re-assessment of essential requirements according to the present document. The legal implications of the declaration of conformity and equipment labelling are, however, outside the scope of this whole multi-part deliverable. Cases, where additional conformance assessment is anyhow required, will be specifically mentioned in the present document and also EN 302 326-3 [12]. In addition to the present document, other ENs specify technical requirements in respect of essential requirements under other parts of article 3 of the R&TTE Directive [2] and which will apply to equipment within the scope of the present document. In order to (technically) cover different market and network requirements, with an appropriate balance of performance to cost and effective and appropriate use of the radio spectrum, the present document, together with EN 302 326-3 [12], offers a number of system types and antennas alternatives, for selection by administrations, operators and manufacturers dependent on the desired use of the radio spectrum and network/market requirements; those options include:
channel separation alternatives (as provided by the relevant CEPT Recommendation);
spectral efficiency class alternatives (different modulation formats provided in radio equipment standards);
antenna sectorization alternatives and directivity classes for CS;
antenna directivity class alternatives for TS and/or RS;
antenna basic polarization (linear or circular).
The applicability of this whole multi-part deliverable to MP equipment is governed by the definition of a number of system profiles that define the set of consistent requirements as described in EN 302 326-1 [11] to which equipment shall conform. The present document is considered applicable to fixed radio systems products with integral antennas, for which all the technical requirements included in the present document and in EN 302 326-3 [12] apply, and to separate equipment products, to which only the relevant technical requirements apply, and which might therefore be subject to separate declarations of conformity with respect to the essential requirements of the R&TTE Directive [2].

Through the notification of the UK interface regulation, the European Commission have strongly requested that ETSI TM4 consider a rationalisation of the number of fixed terrestrial (point-to-point) standards. This work item is therefore in response to this request and aims to simplify (and rationalise the number of)  existing standards.   This work item is to appraise only the published ETSI fixed terrestrial (point-to-point) radio relay standards and consolidate these into the new style generic format . The primary intention will be to rationalise the existing number of standards, in excess of 30, to just a handful, e.g. ideally 5. These standards will then be proposed as Harmonised Standards.  The preferred method of segmentation is yet to be decided, but this may be on the basis of  (frequency range or application or traffic capacity).  Annex A illustrates possible segmentation options.  The work will only consolidate new or existing work items on standards if the output deliverables are formally published before the completion of this work activity. Further, this work item does not, in principle, propose to change any existing technical parameter values, although the presentation of data/information may be modified to enhance understanding and usability leading to some new or revised requirements. The format shall be consistent across the range of standards which are segmented under the preferred method.

The present document is intended to cover the provisions of the R&TTE Directive [1] regarding article 3.2, which states that "….. radio equipment shall be so constructed that it effectively uses the spectrum allocated to terrestrial/space radio communications and orbital resources so as to avoid harmful interference".
The present document is applicable to the essential requirements of antennas (including equipment with integral antennas) used in fixed multipoint radio systems The present document together with EN 302 326-2 [7], is intended to replace and supersede, after a suitable transition period, the harmonized EN 301 753 (see bibliography). for all multipoint equipment and antennas under its scope.
The present document and EN 302 326-2 [7] introduce rationalization among systems conforming to previous EN 301 753 (see bibliography) referencing a number of ENs which, being developed at different times, may have specified slightly different antenna parameters. Nevertheless, care has been taken so that such variations will not affect any frequency planning assumption for already deployed networks. Therefore, unless specifically mentioned, these new requirements, whenever different from those single ENs, are considered completely "equivalent". Therefore mixed use of antennas conforming to the present document and to those previous ones will not change, in practice, any frequency planning rule in any network.
Therefore, from a strictly technical point of view, in most cases it is expected that equipment already conforming to the previous versions of Harmonized EN 301 753 (see bibliography), would not need re-assessment of essential requirements according to the present document. The legal implications of the declaration of conformity and equipment labelling are, however, outside the scope of this whole multi-part deliverable. Cases, where additional conformance
assessment is required, will be specifically mentioned in EN 302 326-2 [7] and in the present document. A formal change in the requirements, introduced by the present document, is that the antenna manufacturer shall declare the nominal gain and tolerance of the antenna against which the conformity assessment is done. In addition to the present document, other ENs specify technical requirements in respect of essential requirements under other parts of article 3 of the R&TTE Directive [1] and which will apply to antennas within the scope of the present document.
NOTE: A list of such ENs is included on the web site: http://www.newapproach.org.
In order to (technically) cover different market and network requirements, with an appropriate balance of performance to cost and effective and appropriate use of the radio spectrum, the present document, together with EN 302 326-2 [7], offers a number of system types and antennas alternatives, for selection by administrations, operators and manufacturers dependent on the desired use of the radio spectrum and network/market requirements; those options include:
• channel separation alternatives (as provided by the relevant CEPT Recommendation);
• spectral efficiency class alternatives (different modulation formats provided in radio equipment standards);
• antenna sectorization alternatives and directivity classes for CS;
• antenna directivity class alternatives for TS and/or RS;
• antenna basic polarization (linear or circular).
For Digital Fixed Radio Systems (DFRS), antennas are considered "relevant components" of "radio equipment" according the definition in article 2(c) of the R&TTE Directive [1]. In particular, it has to be noted that TCAM, while recognizing the "essentiality" of antenna directional requirements for some applications, including the Fixed Service, has deliberated that there should be no obligation for separate declaration of conformity for stand alone antennas and that the conformity to the relevant essential requirements should be the responsibility of the final system integrator.

The present document is intended to cover the provisions of the R&TTE Directive [2] regarding article 3.2, which states that "[...] radio equipment shall be so constructed that it effectively uses the spectrum allocated to terrestrial/space radio communications and orbital resources so as to avoid harmful interference".
The present document is applicable to the essential requirements of equipment (including equipment with integral antennas) used in Multipoint (MP) Digital Fixed Radio Systems (DFRS). The present document, together with EN 302 326-3 [12] are intended to replace and supersede, after a suitable transition period, the harmonized EN 301 753 (see bibliography) for all multipoint equipment and antennas. The present document and EN 302 326-3 [12] introduce rationalization among systems conforming to previous EN 301 753 (see bibliography) referencing a number of ENs which, being developed at different times, might have specified slightly different requirements. However, care has been taken so that such variations will not affect any frequency planning assumption for already deployed networks. Therefore, unless specifically mentioned, these new requirements, whenever different from those single ENs, are considered completely "equivalent". Therefore mixed use of equipment conforming to the present document and to those previous one will not change, in practice, any frequency planning rule in any network.
Therefore, from a strictly technical point of view, in most cases it is expected that equipment already conforming to the previous versions of Harmonized EN 301 753 (see bibliography), would not need re-assessment of essential requirements according to the present document. The legal implications of the declaration of conformity and equipment labelling are, however, outside the scope of this whole multi-part deliverable. Cases, where additional conformance assessment is anyhow required, will be specifically mentioned in the present document and also EN 302 326-3 [12].
In addition to the present document, other ENs specify technical requirements in respect of essential requirements under other parts of article 3 of the R&TTE Directive [2] and which will apply to equipment within the scope of the present document.

The applicability of this whole multi-part deliverable to MP equipment is governed by the definition of a number of system profiles that define the set of consistent requirements as described in EN 302 326-1 [11] to which equipment shall conform.
The present document is considered applicable to fixed radio systems products with integral antennas, for which all the technical requirements included in the present document and in EN 302 326-3 [12] apply, and to separate equipment products, to which only the relevant technical requirements apply, and which might therefore be subject to separate declarations of conformity with respect to the essential requirements of the R&TTE Directive [2].

The present document applies to the following digital fixed radio systems (DFRS), including equipment with integral antenna, and antenna types:
• point-to-point systems intended for operation in frequency bands that require co-ordination;
• point-to-point systems intended for operation in frequency bands that do not require co-ordination;
• antennas for point-to-point operation.
The present document summarizes all characteristics, principles and definitions that are common to all P-P equipment and antennas, EN 302 217- 2-1 and EN 302 217-4-1 (see bibliography) summarize the other system dependent characteristics and include limits for "non-essential" requirements, EN 302 217-2-2, EN 302 217-3 and EN 302 217-4-2 (see bibliography) contain the whole description and limits of "essential" requirements under article 3.2 of the R&TTE Directive [1]. Health and safety requirements, relevant to article 3.1a of the R&TTE Directive [1] are not considered in any part of this EN 302 217 series. EMC conditions and requirements, relevant to article 3.1b of the R&TTE Directive [1] and any other essential requirement relevant to article 3.3 of the R&TTE Directive [1] are not in the scope of any part of this EN 302 217 series.
However, for reader information, EG 201 752 (see bibliography) gives guidance in the selection of other ETSI and CENELEC standards for the assessment of essential requirements under article 3.1 of the R&TTE Directive [1] for any Fixed Radio System.
NOTE: A list of such ENs is available on the web site http://www.newapproach.org.
For administration's guidance when notifying their regulated interfaces in accordance with article 4.1 of the R&TTE Directive [1], annex B provides explanatory considerations on the applicability of the TCAM-RIG format for P-P fixed links. An example of such a notification is also provided. Annex B has been elaborated in co-ordination with the CEPT ECC WG SE.

The present document specifies the essential electrical requirements for linear polarization, fixed beam antennas to be utilized with new Point-to-Multipoint (P-MP) systems, including central station and terminal station applications, operating in frequency bands from 3 GHz to 11 GHz. These systems use various multiple access schemes. Electronically steerable antennas and circularly polarized antennas are not considered in the present document. Only in exceptional circumstances, and after a consultation period with operators and manufacturers, the Regulatory Authority may impose the use of tighter requirements than the minimum values given in the present document, in order to maximize the use of scarce spectrum resources. For some high gain, point-to-multipoint requirements, antennas may be used having performance as per the appropriate point-to-point antenna standard. For these antennas, minimum requirements are given in EN 300 833 [8].

The present document summarizes all system-dependent requirements for Point-to-Point (P-P) equipment in applications deployed in bands where frequency co-ordination is generally applied. These requirements are introduced in two different clauses sub-sets:
• Main requirements are requirements that are also related to the "essential requirements" under article 3.2 of the R&TTE Directive [1] and further detailed in EN 302 217-2-2 [16].
• Complementary requirements are requirements that are not related to essential requirements under article 3.2 of the R&TTE Directive [1]. Nevertheless they are considered having been commonly agreed for proper system operation and deployment when specific deployment conditions or compatibility requirements are present. Compliance to all or some of these requirements is made on a voluntary basis. Description and limits for parameters relevant to essential requirements under article 3.2 of R&TTE Directive [1] are given in EN 302 217-2-2 [16].
For other system-dependent parameters where standardization is required but that do not affect the R&TTE Directive "essential requirements" mentioned above, description and limits are detailed in the present document in the annexes A to G, subdivided by frequency band or specific applications. The present document deals with Radio Frequency (RF) and base-band equipment characteristics; antenna system requirements are covered in EN 302 217-4-1 (see bibliography) and EN 302 217-4-2 (see bibliography). The present document does not cover test procedures and test conditions which are set out in EN 301 126-1 [14]. As the maximum transmission rate in a given bandwidth depends on system spectral efficiency, different equipment classes are defined:
• Class 1: equipment spectral efficiency based on typical 2-states modulation scheme (e.g. 2-FSK, 2-PSK or equivalent);
• Class 2: equipment spectral efficiency based on typical 4-states modulation scheme (e.g. 4-FSK, 4-QAM, or equivalent);
• Class 3: equipment spectral efficiency based on typical 8-states modulation scheme (e.g. 8-PSK, or equivalent);
NOTE: It is also noted that, in this class, for design commonality with other efficiency classes, the 16 QAM format is popular).
• Class 4: equipment spectral efficiency based on typical 16-states or 32-states modulation scheme (e.g. 16-QAM or 32-QAM, or equivalent);
• Class 5A: equipment spectral efficiency based on typical 64-states or 128-states modulation scheme (e.g. 64-QAM or 128-QAM, or equivalent), for cross-polar adjacent channel (ACAP) operation;
• Class 5B: equipment spectral efficiency based on typical 64-states or 128-states modulation scheme (e.g. 64-QAM or 128-QAM, or equivalent), for co-polar adjacent channel (ACCP) and frequency reuse through CCDP operation;
• Class 6A: equipment spectral efficiency based on typical 256-states or 512-states modulation scheme (e.g. 256-QAM or 512-QAM, or equivalent), for cross-polar adjacent channel (ACAP) operation;
• Class 6B: equipment spectral efficiency based on typical 256-states or 512-states modulation scheme (e.g. 256-QAM or 512-QAM, or equivalent), for co-polar adjacent channel (ACCP) and frequency reuse through CCDP operation.

Through the notification of the UK interface regulation, the European Commission have strongly requested that ETSI TM4 consider a rationalisation of the number of fixed terrestrial (point-to-point) standards. This work item is therefore in response to this request and aims to simplify (and rationalise the number of)  existing standards.   This work item is to appraise only the published ETSI fixed terrestrial (point-to-point) radio relay standards and consolidate these into the new style generic format . The primary intention will be to rationalise the existing number of standards, in excess of 30, to just a handful, e.g. ideally 5. These standards will then be proposed as Harmonised Standards.  The preferred method of segmentation is yet to be decided, but this may be on the basis of  (frequency range or application or traffic capacity).  Annex A illustrates possible segmentation options.  The work will only consolidate new or existing work items on standards if the output deliverables are formally published before the completion of this work activity. Further, this work item does not, in principle, propose to change any existing technical parameter values, although the presentation of data/information may be modified to enhance understanding and usability leading to some new or revised requirements. The format shall be consistent across the range of standards which are segmented under the preferred method.
