Foreword

This European Telecommunication Standard (ETS) has been produced by the Network Aspects (NA)

Technical Committee of the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI).

Annexes A and B are normative, annexes C and D are informative.
Transposition dates
Date of adoption: 19 December 1997
Date of latest announcement of this ETS (doa): 31 March 1998

Introduction

In accordance with CCITT Recommendation I.130 [13], the following three level structure is used to

describe the supplementary telecommunication services as provided by European public

telecommunications operators under the pan-European Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN):

- stage 1: is an overall service description, from the user's stand-point;

- stage 2: identifies the functional capabilities and information flows needed to support the service

described in stage 1; and

- stage 3: defines the signalling system protocols and switching functions needed to implement the

service described in stage 1.

This ETS describes the stage one requirements of the ISDN Packet Mode Bearer Services (PMBS)

provided on the D-channel of the user access. Services using the B-channel are covered in

ETS 300 048 [4].

The requirements described in this ETS are applicable only to those services within Europe, and are

based on ITU-T Recommendation I.232 [17]. This service description corresponds to case B (D-channel)

of ETS 300 007 [1] (the European equivalent to ITU-T Recommendation X.31 [11]).

The requirements for stage three of these services are contained in ETS 300 007 [1].

1 Scope

This European Telecommunication Standard (ETS) defines stage one of the ISDN Packet Mode Bearer

Service (PMBS) provided on the D-channel of the user access for the pan-European Integrated Services

Digital Network (ISDN) as provided by European public telecommunications operators. Stage one is an

overall service description from the user's point of view (see CCITT Recommendation I.130 [13]), but

does not deal with the details of the human interface itself.

This ETS makes use of ETS 300 007 [1], which is a stage three standard, in order to provide a description

of the procedures. This mechanism would not normally be used in a stage one standard.

In addition, this ETS specifies the base functionality where the service is provided to the user via a private

ISDN.

This ETS does not define details of the interworking requirements of private ISDNs with the public ISDN.

This ETS does not specify the additional requirements where the service is provided to the user via a

telecommunications network that is not an ISDN but does include interworking requirements of other

networks with the public ISDN.
Charging principles are outside the scope of this ETS.

The ISDN Virtual Call (VC) and Permanent Virtual Circuit (PVC) bearer service category provides the

unrestricted transfer (without alteration) of user information in a packetized manner over a virtual circuit

between reference points via the basic and primary rate access. Each of the reference points can be

either an S or coincident S and T reference point.

NOTE: Network operators can also provide information transfer with the same attributes

where the reference point is T.

The ISDN VC and PVC bearer service category is described in ITU-T Recommendation I.232 [17].

This ETS is applicable to the stage three standards for the ISDN PMBS. The term "stage three" is also

defined in CCITT Recommendation I.130 [13]. Where the text indicates the status of a requirement (i.e. as

strict command or prohibition, as authorization leaving freedom, or as a capability or possibility), this shall

be reflected in the text of the relevant stage three standards.

Furthermore, conformance to this ETS is met by conforming to the stage three standards with the field of

application appropriate to the equipment being implemented. Therefore no method of testing is provided

for this ETS.

4 Description

This service is described in respect of both the point-to-multipoint and the point-to-point access

configurations. This covers the passive bus and Network Termination 2 (NT2) access arrangements.

These packet mode bearer services allow users (e.g. terminals) in a point-to-point communication

configuration to communicate via the ISDN using ITU-T Recommendation X.25 [10] encoding, by means

of procedures over a D-channel in both directions continuously and simultaneously, for the duration of a

call as described in ETS 300 007 [1] (ITU-T Recommendation X.31 [11]).

No distinct user class is defined for the D-channel at 16 kbit/s. The use of class 30 may be available if the

primary rate access (D-channel at 64 kbit/s) is offered.

NOTE: In case of access via a Terminal Adaptor (TA), the following user classes are

supported at the R-reference points: 8-10, and in addition 11 and 13 on a D -channel

(see ITU-T Recommendation X.1 [8]).
5 Procedures
5.1 Provision and withdrawal
5.1.1 General

The ISDN VC and PVC bearer services shall be either provided by prior arrangement with the service

provider or be available on a general basis. In the latter case, a default service profile applies

(see annex C for a PMBS-D default service profile).

Networks may offer either or both B-channel and D-channel VC- and PVC-bearer services on a general

basis.
---------------------- Page: 12 ----------------------
SIST ETS 300 049 E2:2003
Page 11
ETS 300 049: December 1997
The user may subscribe, on a per ISDN number basis, to:

- an Access Profile (AP). The AP consists of ETS 300 007 [1] related service data and includes the

access method and the notification class;

- an X.25 Service Profile. The X.25 service profile consists of ITU-T Recommendation X.25 [10] layer

2 and layer 3 related service data. The user may subscribe to a customized (essential for PVC

operation) X.25 service profile or to a standard service profile offered by the network. The network

shall at least support the standard ITU-T Recommendation X.25 [10] service profile as described in

annex A.
NOTE 1: The subscription to more than one B- or D-channel access method or ITU-T
Recommendation X.25 [10] service profile per ISDN number is recognized as a
possibility, but not described further on in this ETS.
NOTE 2: ETS 300 007 [1] requires terminals to be identified by means of CCITT
Recommendation E.164 [14] numbers. However, for an interim period, addressing

according to annex D is possible. In this case the terminal address is determined at

subscription time.
5.1.2 Access method

The access method defines the method of establishment and release of a connection between the user

and PH which gives access to the ISDN VC and PVC service.

The network may offer a subset of the access methods using the B- or D-channel, to which the user can

subscribe. Only access methods using the D-channel are within the scope of this ETS. For access

methods using the B-channel, refer to ETS 300 048 [4].

Services provided on the D-channel can only be offered and supported by the network according to

ETS 300 007 [1] case B.
Four D-channel access methods may be supported by the ISDN:
- semi-permanent D-channel access;
- preallocated logical link access;
- long-duration preallocated logical link access;
- switched D-channel access.
NOTE: Subscription to more than one instance of a D-channel access method per

ISDN-number is recognized as a possibility, but not described further on in this ETS.

Hence selection mechanisms between more than one logical link for an incoming call

will be network dependent.
5.1.2.1 Semi-permanent D-channel access

The semi-permanent D-channel access connection between the TE and the PH is permanently available,

independent of ITU-T Recommendation X.25 [10] VC/PVCs. The network is responsible to establish and

maintain the data link connection.

The Terminal Endpoint Identifier (TEI)-value in the layer 2 address at the user-network interface is

agreed upon at subscription time (manual TEI-assignment). The TEI-value shall be within the non-

automatic TEI-range.

For this access method the subscriber is registered. Customized and standard service profiles can be

used, but in case of the PVC service, the user shall have a customized service profile.

---------------------- Page: 13 ----------------------
SIST ETS 300 049 E2:2003
Page 12
ETS 300 049: December 1997
5.1.2.2 Preallocated logical link access

The Preallocated Logical Link (PLL), access connection between the TE and the PH is established

(released) on-demand, by the user or network, depending on the first/last ITU-T
Recommendation X.25 [10] VC, using this connection.

The TEI-value in the layer 2 address at the user-network interface is agreed upon at subscription time

(manual TEI-assignment). The TEI-value shall be within the non-automatic TEI-range.

For this access method the subscriber needs to be registered. Customized and standard service profiles

may be used.
5.1.2.3 Long-duration preallocated logical link access

The long-duration PLL access connection between the TE and the PH is established (released)

on-demand by the user, independent of ITU-T Recommendation X.25 [10] VC/PVCs.

The TEI-value in the layer 2 address at the user-network interface is agreed upon at subscription time

(manual TEI-assignment). The TEI-value shall be within the non-automatic TEI-range.

For this access method the subscriber needs to be registered. Customized and standard service profiles

can be used, but in case of the PVC service, the user shall have a customized service profile.

5.1.2.4 Switched D-channel access

The switched D-channel access connection between the TE and the PH is established (released) on-

demand, by the user or network, depending on the first/last ITU-T Recommendation X.25 [10] VC, using

this connection.

The TEI-value is either within the automatic or within the non-automatic TEI-range.

The TEI-value in the layer 2 address at the user-network interface to be used for a VC is agreed upon

dynamically at call request time; in case of incoming calls (network to user) ETS 300 403-1 [7] call

offering procedure (conditional notification according to ETS 300 007 [1] may be used to interrogate the

layer 2 address to be used for the call).

Subscription to or general availability of the switched D-channel access method implies subscription to or

general availability of the basic service PMBS-D.

For this access method the subscriber needs not necessarily be registered, in which case he uses a

default service profile. Else customized or standard service profiles can be used.

5.1.2.5 Notification class

For notification of the user of incoming packet calls, two classes are applicable for use with the D-channel

access methods: the "no notification" and the "conditional notification" classes.

The "no notification" class applies to all D-channel access methods. No ETS 300 403-1 [7] signalling

procedures are used to notify the user of incoming calls. An incoming call packet will directly be delivered

over an existing access connection.

The "conditional notification" class can be subscribed to for switched D-channel access method only.

ETS 300 403-1 [7] call offering procedures may be used to notify the subscriber of an incoming packet

call. A swi
