Page 12ETS 300 976 (GSM 09.07 version 5.7.1): October 1998high layer compatibility information: Information defining the higher layer characteristics of theterminal.compatibility information: This term subsumes the entirety of Bearer Capability, Low LayerCompatibility, High Layer Compatibility, Progress Indicator and Address Information conveyed out-of-bandprior to call establishment for the support of compatibility checking and terminal/function/service selectionat the ISDN-type user-network interface.protocol identifier: Information defining the specific protocols utilized for the support of data transfer by aterminal.progress indicator: Information supplied to indicate to the terminal that network interworking has takenplace.out-of-band parameter exchange: Information exchanged via an associated or non-associatedsignalling link e.g. SS No 7.PSTN: Subscriber to network interface supports only analogue terminals.ISDN: Subscriber to network interface supports digital or analogue terminals, plus a standardized user tonetwork associated signalling system and a standardized internetwork signalling system.autobauding type 1: This information element value may be contained in the setup or call confirmmessages from the MS in association with a non transparent data service. This implies that the MSC/IWFmay select any speed and modem type according to what it can negotiate with the remote modem on thePSTN/ISDN. The maximum speed to be used by the MSC/IWF is the user speed indicated in thesetup/call confirm message.multi self selecting speed modem: This term applies to V series modems capable of handling one ormore lower speeds as a fall back position. When such a modem is requested in the call setup or callconfirm message from the MS in association with a non transparent service, the MSC/IWF may select anyof the speeds supported according to the negotiation with the remote modem on the PSTN/ISDN. In thisinstance the maximum starting negotiation speed to be used by the MSC/IWF is the one indicated by theuser speed in the setup/call confirm message.unrestricted 64 kbit/s network: A digital network which has 64 kbit/s octet-structured InformationTransfer Capability (ITC) with no restrictions on the contents of each octet.restricted 64 kbit/s network: CCITT I.464 defines '"restricted 64 kbit/s transfer capability" as "64 kbit/soctet-structured capability with the exception that an all-zero octet is not permitted". In this specification,the term "restricted 64 kbit/s network" refers not only to networks with the I.464 restriction but also tothose in which the 8th bit of each octet is unusable for data transmission.directly connected restricted 64 kbit/s network: A restricted 64 kbit/s network which is connecteddirectly to the MSC/IWF.indirectly connected restricted 64 kbit/s network: A restricted 64 kbit/s network which is connected tothe MSC/IWF via an unrestricted 64 kbit/s network.In addition to the following, abbreviations used in this ETS are listed in GSM 01.04 [8].ADPCMAdaptive Differential Pulse Coded ModulationDPDial PulseDSS1Digital Subscriber Signalling 1ITCInformation Transfer CapabilityLELocal ExchangeNTNetwork TerminationPABXPrivate Automatic Branch ExchangeSPCStored Program ControlSS No.7Signalling System No.7TETerminal EquipmentSIST ETS 300 976 E6:2003

Since the numbering plan for theISDN era (E.164) includes the numbering plan for the telephone network (E.163), it is not possible todistinguish by the number whether a given subscriber is a PSTN or ISDN subscriber. Further, in somecountries both PSTN and ISDN subscribers will be connected to the same exchange, so the onlydifference for this type of combined network will be in the nature of the customer access. In this documenta PSTN is considered to support only an analogue interface towards the subscriber. An ISDN shall beconsidered to support digital interface towards the subscriber. In addition, the ISDN is considered tosupport a standardized outband signalling protocol both between the subscriber and the network andwithin the network, i.e DSS1 and ISUP, thus enabling the generation and transport of CompatibilityInformation for compatibility checking and terminal/function/service selection at the user-network interfaceas well as for MSC/IWF selection.There now exist networks which do not fall into either of these categories in that they provide for digitalconnectivity from subscriber to subscriber through the network. The subscribers have access to a widerange of services by a limited set of standard multi-purpose user network interfaces. However, thesenetworks do not support the standardized inter-exchange signalling protocol throughout, in that they aree.g. using TUP or National User Part (NUP). These types of network support 64 kbit/s connections, so inservice support are comparable to ISDN, however, the signalling system provided may not supporttransport of all Compatibility Information allowed for in the standardized ISDN signalling. This documentwill therefore identify interworking to PSTN and ISDN on the principle of the network characteristics asidentified in the previous paragraph. The aforementioned existing networks then constitute one particularcase in the ISDN interworking scenarios. These cases will be itemized when the implication of the variousdegrees of exhaustiveness of the Compatibility Information - delivered via the ISDN - used for deducting aGSM Basic Service needs to be set forth.When two dissimilar networks are required to interwork in order to support a communication between twosubscribers, one on each network, a number of Interworking Functions (MSC/IWFs) are required tosupport the communication. Some of these are related t
