Fixed Radio Systems - Characteristics and requirements for point-to-point equipment and antennas - Part 4-2: Antennas - Harmonized EN covering the essential requirements of article 3.2 of the R&TTE Directive

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". The present document is applicable only to antenna types that are intended for use with the systems falling within the scope of documents EN 302 217-2-2 [i.2] and EN 302 217-3 [i.3]. 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 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 302 217-2-2 [i.2], 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 complexity of modulation formats provided in radio equipment standards);
- antenna directivity class alternatives (for different network density requirement).
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, in EN 302 217-2-2 [i.2] and in EN 302 217-3 [i.3] apply; the present document applies, as well, to separate antenna products, to which only the relevant technical requirements apply. For more background information on the equipment and antenna parameters relevant to article 3.2 of the R&TTE Directive see EG 201 399 [i.4] and TR 101 506 [i.6].

Foreword

This Harmonized European Standard (Telecommunications series) has been produced by ETSI Technical Committee

Access, Terminals, Transmission and Multiplexing (ATTM).

The present document has been produced by ETSI in response to a mandate from the European Commission issued

under Council Directive 98/34/EC [i.5] (as amended) laying down a procedure for the provision of information in the

field of technical standards and regulations.

The present document is intended to become a Harmonized Standard, the reference of which will be published in the

Official Journal of the European Communities referencing the Directive 1999/5/EC [1] of the European Parliament and

of the Council of 9 March 1999 on radio equipment and telecommunications terminal equipment and the mutual

recognition of their conformity ("the R&TTE Directive").

Technical Specifications relevant to Directive 1999/5/EC [1] are given in annex A.

The present document is part 4-2 of a multi-part deliverable covering the Fixed Radio Systems; Characteristics and

requirements for point-to-point equipment and antennas. Full details of the entire series can be found in part 1 [3].

Few antenna Radiation Pattern Envelopes (RPE) of the lower directivity class 1 have not been carried over in the

present document because no longer considered appropriate, from the system point of view, with the increasing demand

of spectrum in ETSI Countries, and therefore no more suitable for essential requirements under article 3.2 of the

R&TTE Directive [1] within the European Union. Nevertheless, recognizing that ETSI ENs have worldwide relevance,

they are still found into EN 302 217-4-1 [i.1].

1 Scope

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".

The present document is applicable only to antenna types that are intended for use with the systems falling within the

scope of documents EN 302 217-2-2 [i.2] and EN 302 217-3 [i.3].

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 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 302 217-2-2 [i.2],

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 complexity of modulation formats provided in radio equipment

standards);

• antenna directivity class alternatives (for different network density requirement).

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, in EN 302 217-2-2 [i.2] and in EN 302 217-3 [i.3] apply; the

present document applies, as well, to separate antenna products, to which only the relevant technical requirements

apply. For more background information on the equipment and antenna parameters relevant to article 3.2 of the R&TTE

Directive see EG 201 399 [i.4] and TR 101 506 [i.6].

4 Technical requirements specifications

In the following clauses, electrical characteristics are given as function of specific classification of the antennas

according to the principles referred to in EN 302 217-4-1 [i.1].

The antenna supplier shall state, for each antenna type, the frequency band of operation and antenna gain at least at the

frequency band edges and at mid-band. An antenna, which employs a radome, shall meet the requirements of the

present document with the radome in place. The antenna system shall radiate a linear (single or dual) polarized wave. In

bands where frequency co-ordination is applied, single polarized antennas shall meet cross-polar RPE and XPD

requirements also.

NOTE: In bands where frequency co-ordination is not applied, cross-polar RPE and XPD are not considered as

essential requirements for R&TTE Directive [1] conformance, even if the antenna is actually dual

polarized. Values given in the present document should be considered for reference purposes only. For

definition of co-ordination in frequency bands, refer to definitions in EN 302 217-1 [3].

4.1 Environmental profile

The required environmental profile for operation of the antenna or the equipment-antenna assembly (in case of systems

with integral antenna) shall be declared by the supplier. The antenna shall comply with all the technical requirements of

the present document at all times when operating within the boundary limits of the declared operational environmental

profile. For testing the compliance to technical requirements refer also to EN 301 126-3-1 [2] and clause 5 in the present

document.
4.2 Radiation Pattern Envelope (RPE)

The present document defines only RPE which characteristics are considered suitable, within the European Community,

and relevant to essential requirements under article 3.2 of the R&TTE Directive [1]; however, it is recognized that ETSI

ENs have worldwide relevance and therefore, in other countries, there might be applications and low density radio

networks that justify a different trade-off in terms of performance, size and cost. Therefore in EN 302 217-4-1 [i.1]

other Class 1 antenna RPE are standardized for such purpose.

Not all classes of antennas defined in EN 302 217-4-1 [i.1] are presently represented by specific RPEs in the present

document; missing RPEs are intended for future inclusion whenever the market might possibly require them. Table 1

provides for each frequency range an overview of the currently standardized antenna classes.

Foreword

This Harmonized European Standard (Telecommunications series) has been produced by ETSI Technical Committee

Access, Terminals, Transmission and Multiplexing (ATTM).

The present document has been produced by ETSI in response to a mandate from the European Commission issued

under Council Directive 98/34/EC [i.5] (as amended) laying down a procedure for the provision of information in the

field of technical standards and regulations.

The present document is intended to become a Harmonized Standard, the reference of which will be published in the

Official Journal of the European Communities referencing the Directive 1999/5/EC [1] of the European Parliament and

of the Council of 9 March 1999 on radio equipment and telecommunications terminal equipment and the mutual

recognition of their conformity ("the R&TTE Directive").

Technical Specifications relevant to Directive 1999/5/EC [1] are given in annex A.

The present document is part 4-2 of a multi-part deliverable covering the Fixed Radio Systems; Characteristics and

requirements for point-to-point equipment and antennas. Full details of the entire series can be found in part 1 [3].

Few antenna Radiation Pattern Envelopes (RPE) of the lower directivity class 1 have not been carried over in the

present document because no longer considered appropriate, from the system point of view, with the increasing demand

of spectrum in ETSI Countries, and therefore no more suitable for essential requirements under article 3.2 of the

R&TTE Directive [1] within the European Union. Nevertheless, recognizing that ETSI ENs have worldwide relevance,

they are still found into EN 302 217-4-1 [i.1].

1 Scope

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".

The present document is applicable only to antenna types that are intended for use with the systems falling within the

scope of documents EN 302 217-2-2 [i.2] and EN 302 217-3 [i.3].

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 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 302 217-2-2 [i.2],

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 complexity of modulation formats provided in radio equipment

standards);

• antenna directivity class alternatives (for different network density requirement).

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, in EN 302 217-2-2 [i.2] and in EN 302 217-3 [i.3] apply; the

present document applies, as well, to separate antenna products, to which only the relevant technical requirements

apply. For more background information on the equipment and antenna parameters relevant to article 3.2 of the R&TTE

Directive see EG 201 399 [i.4] and TR 101 506 [i.6].

4 Technical requirements specifications

In the following clauses, electrical characteristics are given as function of specific classification of the antennas

according to the principles referred to in EN 302 217-4-1 [i.1].

The antenna supplier shall state, for each antenna type, the frequency band of operation and antenna gain at least at the

frequency band edges and at mid-band. An antenna, which employs a radome, shall meet the requirements of the

present document with the radome in place. The antenna system shall radiate a linear (single or dual) polarized wave. In

bands where frequency co-ordination is applied, single polarized antennas shall meet cross-polar RPE and XPD

requirements also.

NOTE: In bands where frequency co-ordination is not applied, cross-polar RPE and XPD are not considered as

essential requirements for R&TTE Directive [1] conformance, even if the antenna is actually dual

polarized. Values given in the present document should be considered for reference purposes only. For

definition of co-ordination in frequency bands, refer to definitions in EN 302 217-1 [3].

4.1 Environmental profile

The required environmental profile for operation of the antenna or the equipment-antenna assembly (in case of systems

with integral antenna) shall be declared by the supplier. The antenna shall comply with all the technical requirements of

the present document at all times when operating within the boundary limits of the declared operational environmental

profile. For testing the compliance to technical requirements refer also to EN 301 126-3-1 [2] and clause 5 in the present

document.
4.2 Radiation Pattern Envelope (RPE)

The present document defines only RPE which characteristics are considered suitable, within the European Community,

and relevant to essential requirements under article 3.2 of the R&TTE Directive [1]; however, it is recognized that ETSI

ENs have worldwide relevance and therefore, in other countries, there might be applications and low density radio

networks that justify a different trade-off in terms of performance, size and cost. Therefore in EN 302 217-4-1 [i.1]

other Class 1 antenna RPE are standardized for such purpose.

Not all classes of antennas defined in EN 302 217-4-1 [i.1] are presently represented by specific RPEs in the present

document; missing RPEs are intended for future inclusion whenever the market might possibly require them. Table 1

provides for each frequency range an overview of the currently standardized antenna classes.

Foreword

This Harmonized European Standard (Telecommunications series) has been produced by ETSI Technical Committee

Access, Terminals, Transmission and Multiplexing (ATTM), and is now submitted for the ETSI standards One-step

Approval Procedure.

The present document has been produced by ETSI in response to a mandate from the European Commission issued

under Council Directive 98/34/EC [i.5] (as amended) laying down a procedure for the provision of information in the

field of technical standards and regulations.

The present document is intended to become a Harmonized Standard, the reference of which will be published in the

Official Journal of the European Communities referencing the Directive 1999/5/EC [1] of the European Parliament and

of the Council of 9 March 1999 on radio equipment and telecommunications terminal equipment and the mutual

recognition of their conformity ("the R&TTE Directive").

Technical Specifications relevant to Directive 1999/5/EC [1] are given in annex A.

The present document is part 4-2 of a multi-part deliverable covering the Fixed Radio Systems; Characteristics and

requirements for point-to-point equipment and antennas. Full details of the entire series can be found in part 1 [3].

Few antenna Radiation Pattern Envelopes (RPE) of the lower directivity class 1 have not been carried over in the

present document because no longer considered appropriate, from the system point of view, with the increasing demand

of spectrum in ETSI Countries, and therefore no more suitable for essential requirements under article 3.2 of the

R&TTE Directive [1] within the European Union. Nevertheless, recognizing that ETSI ENs have worldwide relevance,

they are still found into EN 302 217-4-1 [i.1].
Proposed national transposition dates
Date of latest announcement of this EN (doa): 3 months after ETSI publication
Date of latest publication of new National Standard
or endorsement of this EN (dop/e): 6 months after doa

Date of withdrawal of any conflicting National Standard (dow): 18 months after doa

1 Scope

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".

The present document is applicable only to antenna types that are intended for use with the systems falling within the

scope of documents EN 302 217-2-2 [i.2] and EN 302 217-3 [i.3].

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 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 302 217-2-2 [i.2],

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 complexity of modulation formats provided in radio equipment

standards);

• antenna directivity class alternatives (for different network density requirement).

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, in EN 302 217-2-2 [i.2] and in EN 302 217-3 [i.3] apply; the

present document applies, as well, to separate antenna products, to which only the relevant technical requirements

apply. For more background information on the equipment and antenna parameters relevant to article 3.2 of the R&TTE

Directive see EG 201 399 [i.4] and TR 101 506 [i.6].

4 Technical requirements specifications

In the following clauses, electrical characteristics are given as function of specific classification of the antennas

according to the principles referred to in EN 302 217-4-1 [i.1].

The antenna supplier shall state, for each antenna type, the frequency band of operation and antenna gain at least at the

frequency band edges and at mid-band. An antenna, which employs a radome, shall meet the requirements of the

present document with the radome in place. The antenna system shall radiate a linear (single or dual) polarized wave. In

bands where frequency co-ordination is applied, single polarized antennas shall meet cross-polar RPE and XPD

requirements also.

NOTE: In bands where frequency co-ordination is not applied, cross-polar RPE and XPD are not considered as

essential requirements for R&TTE Directive [1] conformance, even if the antenna is actually dual

polarized. Values given in the present document should be considered for reference purposes only. For

definition of co-ordination in frequency bands, refer to definitions in EN 302 217-1 [3].

4.1 Environmental profile

The required environmental profile for operation of the antenna or the equipment-antenna assembly (in case of systems

with integral antenna) shall be declared by the supplier. The antenna shall comply with all the technical requirements of

the present document at all times when operating within the boundary limits of the declared operational environmental

profile. For testing the compliance to technical requirements refer also to EN 301 126-3-1 [2] and clause 5 in the present

document.
4.2 Radiation Pattern Envelope (RPE)

The present document defines only RPE which characteristics are considered suitable, within the European Community,

and relevant to essential requirements under article 3.2 of the R&TTE Directive [1]; however, it is recognized that ETSI

ENs have worldwide relevance and therefore, in other countries, there might be applications and low density radio

networks that justify a different trade-off in terms of performance, size and cost. Therefore in EN 302 217-4-1 [i.1]

other Class 1 antenna RPE are standardized for such purpose.

Not all classes of antennas defined in EN 302 217-4-1 [i.1] are presently represented by specific RPEs in the present

document; missing RPEs are intended for future inclusion whenever the market might possibly require them. Table 1

provides for each frequency range an overview of the currently standardized antenna classes.
