2 General

The radio subsystem is required to support a certain number of logical channels that can be separated

into two overall categories as defined in GSM 04.03:
i) The traffic channels (TCH's).
ii) The control channels.

ETS 300 574 (GSM 05.02 version 4.9.1): January 1998

More information is given about these logical channels in section 3 which also defines a number of special

channels used by the radio sub-system.

Section 4 of this document describes the physical resource available to the radio sub-system, section 5

defines physical channels based on that resource and section 6 specifies how the logical channels shall

be mapped onto physical channels. Figure 1 depicts this process.
3 Logical channels
3.1 General

This section describes the logical channels that are supported by the radio subsystem.

3.2 Traffic channels
3.2.1 General

Traffic channels (TCH's) are intended to carry either encoded speech or user data. Two general forms of

traffic channel are defined:

i) Full rate traffic channel (TCH/F). This channel carries information at a gross rate of

22.8 kbits/s.

ii) Half rate traffic channel (TCH/H). This channel carries information at a gross rate of

11.4 kbit/s.

The specific traffic channels available in the categories of speech and user data are defined in the

sections following.
3.2.2 Speech traffic channels
The following traffic channels are defined to carry encoded speech:
i) Full rate traffic channel for speech (TCH/FS).
ii) Half rate traffic channel for speech (TCH/HS).
3.2.3 Data traffic channels
The following traffic channels are defined to carry user data:
i) Full rate traffic channel for 9.6 kbit/s user data (TCH/F9.6).
ii) Full rate traffic channel for 4.8 kbit/s user data (TCH/F4.8).
iii) Half rate traffic channel for 4.8 kbit/s user data (TCH/H4.8).
iv) Half rate traffic channel for ≤ 2.4 kbit/s user data (TCH/H2.4).
v) Full rate traffic channel for ≤ 2.4 kbit/s user data (TCH/F2.4).
3.3 Control channels
3.3.1 General

Control channels are intended to carry signalling or synchronization data. Three categories of control

channel are defined: broadcast, common and dedicated. Specific channels within these categories are

defined in the sections following.

SIST ETS 300 574 E6:2003
Page 9
ETS 300 574 (GSM 05.02 version 4.9.1): January 1998
3.3.2 Broadcast channels
3.3.2.1 Frequency correction channel (FCCH)

The frequency correction channel carries information for frequency correction of the mobile station. It is

required only for the operation of the radio sub-system.
3.3.2.2 Synchronization channel (SCH)

The synchronization channel carries information for frame synchronization of the mobile station and

identification of a base transceiver station. It is required only for the operation of the radio sub-system.

Specifically the synchronization channel shall contain two encoded parameters:

a) Base transceiver station identity code (BSIC): 6 bits (before channel coding) consists of 3 bits

of PLMN colour code with range 0 to 7 and 3 bits of BS colour code with range 0 to 7 as

defined in GSM 03.03.
b) Reduced TDMA frame number (RFN): 19 bits (before channel coding) =
T1 (11 bits) range 0 to 2047 = FN div ( 26 x 51)
T2 (5 bits) range 0 to 25 = FN mod 26
T3' (3 bits) range 0 to 4 = (T3 - 1) div 10
where
T3 (6 bits) range 0 to 50 = FN mod 51
and
FN = TDMA frame number as defined in section 4.3.3.

GSM 04.06 and GSM 04.08 specify the precise bit ordering, GSM 05.03 the channel coding of the above

parameters and GSM 05.10 defines how the TDMA frame number can be calculated from T1, T2, and

T3'.
3.3.2.3 Broadcast control channel (BCCH)

The broadcast control channel broadcasts general information on a base transceiver station per base

transceiver station basis. Of the many parameters contained in the BCCH, the use of the following

parameters, as defined in GSM 04.08 are referred to in section 6.5:
a) CCCH_CONF which indicates the organization of the common control channels:
From this parameter, the number of common control channels (BS_CC_CHANS) and
whether or not CCCH or SDCCH are combined (BS_CCCH_SDCCH_COMB = true or false)
are derived as follows:
CCCH_CONF BS_CC_CHANS BS_CCCH_SDCCH_COMB
000 1 false
001 1 true
010 2 false
100 3 false
110 4 false

b) BS_AG_BLKS_RES which indicates the number of blocks on each common control channel

reserved for access grant messages:
3 bits (before channel coding) range 0 to 7.

SIST ETS 300 574 E6:2003
Page 10
ETS 300 574 (GSM 05.02 version 4.9.1): January 1998
c) BS_PA_MFRMS which indicates the number of 51 TDMA frame multiframes between
transmission of paging messages to mobiles of the same paging group:
3 bits (before channel coding) range 2 to 9.

3.3.3 Common control type channels, known when combined as a common control channel

(CCCH)
i) Paging channel (PCH): Downlink only, used to page mobiles.

ii) Random access channel (RACH): Uplink only, used to request allocation of a SDCCH.

iii) Access grant channel (AGCH): Downlink only, used to allocate a SDCCH or directly a TCH.

3.3.4 Dedicated control channels
i) Slow, TCH/F associated, control channel (SACCH/TF).
ii) Fast, TCH/F associated, control channel (FACCH/F).
iii) Slow, TCH/H associated, control channel (SACCH/TH).
iv) Fast, TCH/H associated, control channel (FACCH/H).
v) Stand alone dedicated control channel (SDCCH/8).
vi) Slow, SDCCH/8 associated, control channel (SACCH/C8).
vii) Stand alone dedicated control channel, combined with CCCH (SDCCH/4).
viii) Slow, SDCCH/4 associated, control channel (SACCH/C4).
3.3.5 Cell Broadcast Channel (CBCH)

The CBCH, downlink only, is used to carry the short message service cell broadcast (SMSCB). The

CBCH uses the same physical channel as the SDCCH.
3.4 Combination of channels

Only certain combinations of channels are allowed as defined in GSM 04.03. Section 6.4 lists the

combinations in relation to basic physical channels.
4 The physical resource
4.1 General

The physical resource available to the radio sub-system is an allocation of part of the radio spectrum. This

resource is partitioned both in frequency and time. Frequency is partitioned by radio frequency channels

(RFCHs) divided into bands as defined in GSM 05.05. Time is partitioned by timeslots and TDMA frames

as defined in section 4.3 of this ETS.
4.2 Radio frequency channels
4.2.1 Cell allocation and mobile allocation

GSM 05.05 defines radio frequency channels (RFCHs), and allocates numbers to all the radio frequency

channels available to the system. Each cell is allocated a subset of these channels, defined as the cell

allocation (CA). One radio frequency channel of the cell allocation shall be used to carry synchronization

information and the BCCH, this shall be known as BCCH carrier. The subset of the cell allocation,

allocated to a particular mobile, shall be known as the mobile allocation (MA).
4.2.2 Downlink and uplink

The downlink comprises radio frequency channels used in the base transceiver station to mobile station

direction.
---------------------- Page: 12 ----------------------
SIST ETS 300 574 E6:2003
Page 11
ETS 300 574 (GSM 05.02 version 4.9.1): January 1998

The uplink comprises radio frequency channels used in the mobile station to base transceiver station

direction.
4.3 Timeslots and TDMA frames
4.3.1 General

A timeslot shall have a duration of 3/5 200 seconds (≈ 577 μs). Eight timeslots shall form a TDMA frame

(≈ 4,62 ms in duration).

At the base transceiver station the TDMA frames on all of the radio frequency channels in the downlink

shall be aligned. The same shall apply to the uplink (see GSM 05.10).

At the base transceiver station the start of a TDMA frame on the uplink is delayed by the fixed period of

3 timeslots from the start of the TDMA frame on the downlink (see figure 2).

At the mobile station this delay will be variable to allow adjustment for signal propagation delay. The

process of adjusting this advance is known as adaptive frame alignment and is detailed in GSM 05.10.

The staggering of TDMA frames used in the downlink and uplink is in order to allow the same timeslot

number to be used in the downlink and uplink whilst avoiding the requirement for the mobile station to

transmit and receive simultaneously. The period includes time for adaptive frame alignment, transceiver

tuning and receive/transmit switching (see figure 4).
4.3.2 Timeslot number

The timeslots within a TDMA frame shall be numbered from 0 to 7 and a particular timeslot shall be

referred to by its timeslot number (TN).
4.3.3 TDMA frame number

TDMA frames shall be numbered by a frame number (FN). The frame number shall be cyclic and shall

have a range of 0 to FN_MAX where FN_MAX = (26 x 51 x 2048) -1 = 2715647 as defined in GSM 05.10.

The frame number shall be incremented at the end of each TDMA frame.

The complete cycle of TDMA frame numbers from 0 to FN_MAX is defined as a hyperframe. A

hyperframe consists of 2048 superframes where a superframe is defined as 26 x 51 TDMA frames. A

26 TDMA frame multiframe is used to support traffic and associated control channels and a 51 TDMA

frame multiframe is used to support broadcast, common control and stand alone dedicated control (and

their associated control) channels. Hence a superframe may be considered as 51 traffic/associated

control multiframes or 26 broadcast/common control multiframes.

The need for a hyperframe of a substantially longer period than a superframe arises from the

requirements of the encryption process which uses FN as an input parameter.
5 Physical channels
5.1 General

A physical channel uses a combination of frequency and time division multiplexing and is defined as a

sequence of radio frequency channels and time slots. The complete definition of a particular physical

channel consists of a description in the frequency domain, and a description in the time domain.

The description in the frequency domain is addressed in section 5.4, the description in the time domain is

addressed in section 5.5.

5.2 Bursts
5.2.1 General

A burst is a period of R.F. carrier which is modulated by a data stream. A burst therefore represents the

physical content of a timeslot.
5.2.2 Types of burst and burst timing

A timeslot is divided into 156.25 bit periods. A particular bit period within a timeslot is referenced by a bit

number (BN), with the first bit period being numbered 0, and the last (1/4) bit period being numbered 156.

In the sections following the transmission timing of a burst within a timeslot is defined in terms of bit

number. The bit with the lowest bit number is transmitted first.

Different types of burst exist in the system. One characteristic of a burst is its useful duration. This

document, in the sections following, defines four full bursts of 147 bits useful duration, and one short burst

of 87 bits useful duration. The useful part of a burst is defined as beginning from half way through bit

number 0. The definition of the useful part of a burst needs to be considered in conjunction with the

requirements placed on the phase and amplitude characteristics of a burst as specified in GSM 05.04 and

05.05.

The period between bursts appearing in successive timeslots is termed the guard period. Section 5.2.8

details constraints which relate to the guard period.

- where the "training sequence bits" are defined as modulating bits with states as given in the

following table according to the training sequence code, TSC. For broadcast and common control

channels, the TSC must be equal to the BCC, as defined in GSM 03.03 and as described in this

technical specification in section 3.3.2.

information. For downlink DTX operation on TCH-FS and TCH-HS, when a traffic frame (as defined in

frame shall contain partial SID information from any associated SID frame, with the appropriate stealing

flags BN60 or BN87 set to 0. In other cases the binary state of the remaining bits is not specified.

- where the "tail bits" are defined as modulating bits with states as follows:
(BN0, BN1, BN2) = (0, 0, 0) and
(BN145, BN146, BN147) = (0, 0, 0)
- where the "fixed bits" are defined as modulating bits with states as follows:
(BN3, BN4 ... BN144) = (0, 0 ... 0)

NOTE: This burst is equivalent to unmodulated carrier with a +1 625/24 kHz frequency offset,

above the nominal carrier frequency.
