Foreword
This European Telecommunication Standard (ETS) has been produced by the Business

Telecommunications (BT) Technical Committee of the European Telecommunications Standards Institute

(ETSI).

This ETS results from a mandate from the Commission of the European Community (CEC) to provide

harmonised standards for the support of the Directive on Open Network Provision (ONP) of leased lines

(92/44/EEC).
There are two other standards directly related to this ETS:

ETS 300 246: "Open Network Provision (ONP) technical requirements; 2 048 kbit/s digital

unstructured leased line (D2048U), Network interface presentation";

ETS 300 248: "Open Network Provision (ONP) technical requirements; 2 048 kbit/s digital

unstructured leased line (D2048U), Terminal equipment interface".

This ETS is based on information from CCITT Recommendations and ETSI publications and the relevant

documents are quoted where appropriate.
Introduction

The Council Directive on the application of Open Network Provision (ONP) to leased lines (92/44/EEC),

concerns the harmonisation of conditions for open and efficient access to, and use of, the leased lines

provided on public telecommunications networks and the availability throughout the Community (EEC) of a

minimum set of leased lines with harmonised technical characteristics.

The consequence of the Directive is that Telecommunications Organisations within the EEC shall make

available a set of leased lines between points in these countries with specified connection characteristics

and specified interfaces. Under the Second Phase Directive (91/263/EEC), terminal equipment for

connection to these leased lines will be required to fulfil certain essential requirements.

CCITT Recommendation I.340 for ISDN connection types is used as a basis for the connection

characteristics.

1 Scope

This ETS specifies the technical requirements and test principles for connection characteristics of ONP

2 048 kbit/s digital unstructured leased lines.

A connection is presented via interfaces at Network Termination Points (NTP) and includes any equipment

that may provide the NTP. Signals between terminal equipments are subject to impairments during their

transfer over the connection. The limits to these impairments are stated in this ETS. Together with the

companion standard, ETS 300 246 [3] defining the interface presentation, this ETS describes the service

offered.

The leased line provides access to the full digital bit rate of 2 048 kbit/s with no restrictions on the binary

content.

The tests specified in this ETS cannot be carried out, nor can the performance be monitored by the leased

line provider, while the leased line is in service, i.e. carrying users' traffic. Thus the tests are designed for

bringing into and returning into service, although there is no obligation to perform these tests each time a

leased line is brought into or returned into service.

This ETS is applicable to leased lines, including part time leased lines, for which the establishment or

release do not require any protocol exchange or other intervention at the NTP.

This ETS specifies the compliance tests for the connection requirements. This ETS does not include details

concerning the implementation of the tests, nor does it include information on any relevant regulations.

This ETS describes those characteristics of the connection that cannot be determined only by the

equipment providing the NTPs. The related standard ETS 300 246 [3] defines the interface presentation

and places no further constraints on the connection.
2 Normative references

This ETS incorporates by dated or undated reference, provisions from other publications. These normative

references are cited at the appropriate places in the text and the publications are listed hereafter. For

dated references, subsequent amendments to or revisions of any of these publications apply to this ETS

only when incorporated in it by amendment or revision. For undated references the latest edition of the

publication referred to applies.
[1] CCITT Recommendation O.151 (1988): "Error performance measuring
equipment for digital systems at the primary bit rate and above".
[2] CCITT Recommendation O.153 (1988): "Basic parameters for the measurement
of error performance at bit rates below the primary rate".
[3] ETS 300 246 (1993): "Open Network Provision (ONP) technical requirements;
2 048kbit/s digital unstructured leased line (D2048U), Network interface
presentation".

NOTE: This ETS also contains a number of informative references which have been included to

indicate the sources from which various material has been derived, hence they do not

have an associated normative reference number. Details of these publications are given

in Annex C. In some cases the same publication may have been referenced in both a

normative and an informative manner.
3 Definitions
For the purposes of this ETS, the following definitions apply:
---------------------- Page: 9 ----------------------
SIST ETS 300 247:1999
Page 8
ETS 300 247: October 1993

Leased lines: the telecommunications facilities provided by a public telecommunications network that

provide defined transmission characteristics between network termination points and that do not include

switching functions that the user can control, (e.g. on-demand switching).

Network Termination Point (NTP): all physical connections and their technical access specifications

which form part of the public telecommunications network and are necessary for access to, and efficient

communication through, that public network.

Unavailability period: a period of time beginning at the first of 10 consecutive severely errored seconds

and ending immediately before the first following period of 10 consecutive seconds none of which are

severely errored.
Errored block : a block with one or more bit errors.
NOTE: The duration of a block is 1 millisecond.
Errored second : a one-second period with one or more errored blocks.

Severely disturbed period : occurs when, over a minimum period of time equivalent to four contiguous

blocks, either all the contiguous blocks are affected by a high binary error density of at least 10 , or a loss

of signal information is observed.

Severely errored second : a one-second period which contains at least 30 % errored blocks or at least

one severely disturbed period.

Slip: a sequence of one or more extra or missing consecutive unit intervals in the bit stream.

Errored seconds ratio : the ratio of errored seconds over all seconds within a specified measuring

period, where neither are counted during unavailability periods.

Severely errored seconds ratio : the ratio of severely errored seconds over all seconds within a

specified measuring period, where neither are counted during unavailability periods.

Background block error ratio : the ratio of errored blocks over all blocks within a specified measuring

period, where neither are counted during unavailability periods nor during severely errored seconds.

Satellite transmission: transmission via an earth orbiting satellite.

5 Requirements

The performance of the leased line shall comply with these requirements only if the conditions of supply of

the network equipment providing the NTP are met, (e.g. if the equipment is connected to an appropriate

power supply on the customer's premises).

The CCITT attribute technique is used to express the connection requirements. The following attributes

from CCITT Recommendation I.140 are specified in this ETS:
- Information transfer rate;
- Information transfer susceptance;
- Structure;
- Establishment of communication;
- Symmetry;
- Communication configuration;
- Network performance.
NOTE: "Bit rate" is equivalent to "information transfer rate" in this ETS.

The following network performance sub-attributes are considered relevant for this ETS:

- Transmission delay;
- Jitter;
- Slip;
- Error.
5.1 Attributes

The connection attributes are displayed in table 1. In effect, these attributes define the service being

offered.

There are no requirements for low frequency (below 20 Hz) variation of one way end-to-end delay under

this ETS.

NOTE 2: A requirement for low frequency (below 20 Hz) variation of one way end-to-end delay

may be added to this ETS when appropriate specifications become available.

5.1.7.2 Jitter
5.1.7.2.1 Jitter tolerance at the network input port

Requirement: The leased line shall function as specified with input jitter being the sum of two band limited

components as defined in table 2.

NOTE: The jitter tolerance for the connection is defined in this way instead of specifying single

jitter frequencies, for the following reasons:
a) this method is more representative of the jitter encountered in practice; and

b) long regenerator chains may be especially sensitive to single jitter frequencies.
