Fixed Radio Systems; Characteristics and requirements for point-to-point equipment and antennas; Part 1: Overview and system-independent common characteristics

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.

Introduction
Generality

Digital Fixed Radio Systems (DFRS), used in European countries, have been specified up to now in a relatively large

number of specific European Norms produced by ETSI.
ETSI
---------------------- Page: 6 ----------------------
SIST EN 302 217-1 V1.1.4:2006
5 ETSI EN 302 217-1 V1.1.4 (2005-11)

Previous documents, to be replaced by EN 302 217 series, contained both essential requirements, cross-referenced in

EN 301 751 (see bibliography), and other requirements that, even if not considered essential under 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 (hereafter mentioned as the

R&TTE Directive) [1], may be applicable.

Existing standards for point-to-point systems, including antennas, cover a very large range of traffic capacities, channel

separations, modulation formats and applications over a very wide range of frequency bands that are summarized in

table 1.
Table 1: Digital Fixed Radio Systems (DFRS) parameters
Parameter Range
Frequency bands from 1 GHz to 58 GHz
Traffic capacities from 9,6 kbit/s to 622 Mbit/s
Channel separations from 25 kHz to 112 MHz

Modulation formats from 2 to 512 states (amplitude and/or phase and/or frequency modulated

states)
Typical applications POINT-TO-POINT (P-P) CONNECTIONS:
rural and urban low/medium/high capacity links for mobile infrastructure,
transport/trunk (long haul), FWA/BFWA backhaul, access, governmental
(non-military) links, private fixed networks, SAP/SAB P to P audio and video
links
STAND ALONE ANTENNAS:
for all of the above applications when integral antennas are not employed

The new regulatory framework for placing radio systems on the market, established by the R&TTE Directive [1] also

requires the availability of Harmonized ENs covering the essential requirements under article 3.2 of the R&TTE

Directive [1]. This was achieved in the first instance by the harmonized EN 301 751 (see bibliography), which

cross-references to the relevant clauses of the ENs in table 2, dealing with those essential requirements. However, as a

long-term solution, an EN 302 217 series including stand-alone harmonized ENs containing all necessary information

and avoiding as much as is practical cross-references, better suits regulatory and market requirements.

EN 302 217 series (see bibliography) meets this demand by providing a rational subdivision of requirements into

general, system dependent "not essential" and "essential" requirements from the perspective of the R&TTE

Directive [1].

Part 1 includes system-independent common characteristics; these requirements are not essential under article 3.2 of the

R&TTE Directive [1].

EN 302 217-2-2, EN 302 217-3 and EN 302 217-4-2 (see bibliography) relevant to essential requirements under

article 3.2 of the R&TTE Directive [1] replicate, within the scope and applicability of the R&TTE Directive [1], the

requirements set out in harmonized EN 301 751 (see bibliography).

NOTE 1: It is proposed that the date of cessation of presumption of conformity to the R&TTE Directive [1] with

reference to harmonized EN 301 751 (see bibliography) be kept two years after the date of publication in

the OJ EC of the present document.

EN 302 217 series introduces, for systems (equipment and antennas) already covered by EN 301 751 (see bibliography),

only technically equivalent or less stringent requirements (see note 2). 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), would not need a new test

report for re-assessment of essential requirements according EN 302 217 series (see note 1). Legal implications with

respect to declaration of conformity and equipment labelling are outside the scope of the present document.

NOTE 2: The only exception is with respect to class 5A equipment for system D.7 (see annex D of

EN 302 217-2-2) and for systems E.1, E.2 and E.3 (see annex E of EN 302 217-2-2) for which a previous

design objective has here been transformed 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 the present document, the equipment subject of the former standards is grouped into families of either similar

frequency bands or applications. Five families are identified for frequency bands where frequency co-ordination is

applied, corresponding, in both EN 302 217-2-1 and EN 302 217-2-2 (see bibliography), to annexes referenced from A

to E and one family associated with applications of packet data and combination of other signals mapped into

proprietary transport modules, detailed in annex F.
• A frequency bands from 1,4 GHz to 2,7 GHz;

• B frequency bands from 3 GHz to 11 GHz (channel separation up to around 30 MHz);

• C frequency bands from 3 GHz to 11 GHz (channel separation 40 MHz);
• D frequency bands 13 GHz, 15 GHz and 18 GHz;
• E frequency bands from 23 GHz to 55 GHz;
• F transmission of Packet Data and combination of other signals.
Cross references to previous relevant ENs

The EN 302 217 series will replace and supersede, after a suitable transition period, the standards that are listed in

table 2 (sorted by ascending EN number). Table 2 provides also an overview of the correspondence between equipment

considered in those ENs and part/annexes in the present document.

Requirements in the previous ENs have been rationalized and redistributed in the present document according to a logic

subdivision dictated by the coming into force of the R&TTE Directive [1]:

• requirements considered essential under article 3.2 of the R&TTE Directive [1] have been placed in the

relevant harmonized ENs EN 302 217-2-2, EN 302 217-3 and EN 302 217-4-2 (see bibliography);

• other requirements that, even if not considered essential under the R&TTE Directive [1], may be applicable,

on a voluntary basis, as a common basis for maintaining performance and operability of DFRS in typical

deployment, have been placed in the relevant ENs, EN 302 217-1, EN 302 217-2-1 and EN 302 217-4-1 (see

bibliography).

User's guide

With reference to the former standards listed in table 2, the present EN series provides the same set of characteristics

and requirements, with the same values. However, this information is presented differently, spread across six parts

corresponding to three categories.

The first category (the present document) corresponds to characteristics which are either common to the whole family

of equipment or are provided in a comprehensive list, i.e. performance and availability, environmental profiles, power

supply, system block diagram, TMN interface, mechanical characteristics and baseband interfaces and parameters. The

symbols and abbreviations, which apply to the EN 302 217 series, are listed in the present document. The present

document defines those requirements and characteristics set out in the other parts of this EN 302 217 series.

The second category (EN 302 217-2-1and EN 302 217-4-1 in the bibliography) corresponds to characteristics and

requirements, which are not relevant to article 3.2 of the R&TTE Directive [1]. Nevertheless, compliance to all or some

of these requirements is mandatory in order to claim compliance with the relevant part of the EN 302 217 series.

Requirements are either "main requirements" or "complementary requirements". Even though compliance to these parts

is not mandatory for the R&TTE Directive [1] conformity, compliance may be claimed to all or some requirements of

these parts.

EN 302 217-2-1 and EN 302 217-4-1 (see bibliography) provide a description of the main and complementary

requirements, for equipment operating in co-ordinated frequency bands and for antennas.

Main requirements are requirements that are also related to the "essential requirements" under article 3.2 of the R&TTE

Directive [1] and are further detailed in EN 302 217-2-2 and EN 302 217-4-2 (see bibliography) of this EN 302 217

series; for equipment operating in co-ordinated frequency bands (part 2-2) and for antennas (part 4-2), respectively.

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.

The limiting values for main and complementary requirements that are not common to all of the equipment covered by

one part, but specific to one frequency range, one hierarchy (PDH or SDH), one capacity, etc, are located in annexes

which may be further divided into sub-annexes. A sub-annex, when created, is dedicated to one system, described by

the association of the range of capacities, the range of frequencies and the range of channel separations.

The third category (EN 302 217-2-2, EN 302 217-3 and EN 302 217-4-2) corresponds to essential phenomena, with

respect to article 3.2 of the R&TTE Directive [1] and are consequently candidate-harmonized standards. The

requirements are provided in the same way as in EN 302 217-2-1and EN 302 217-4-1. The limiting values associated

with the essential requirements which are not common to all of the equipment covered by one part, but specific to one

frequency range, one hierarchy (PDH or SDH), one capacity, etc, are located in annexes wh
