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

The present document applies to the following digital fixed radio systems (DFRS), including equipment with integral antenna and antenna types:
-point-to-point systems intended for operation in frequency bands that require co-ordination;
-point-to-point systems intended for operation in frequency bands that do not require co-ordination;
-antennas for point-to-point operation.
The present document summarizes all characteristics, principles, terms and definitions that are common to all P-P equipment and antennas and its consultation is necessary when using all other parts of EN 302 217 series.
EN 302 217-2-1 [i.33] and EN 302 217-4-1 [i.36] summarize the other system dependent characteristics and include limits for "non-essential" requirements, EN 302 217-2-2 [i.34], EN 302 217-3 [i.35] and EN 302 217-4-2 [i.37] contain the whole description and limits of "essential" requirements under article 3.2 of the R&TTE Directive [1]. Health and safety requirements, relevant to article 3.1a of the R&TTE Directive [1] are not considered in any part of this EN 302 217 series. CENELEC is responsible for the relevant standards. EMC conditions and requirements, relevant to article 3.1b of the R&TTE Directive [1] and any other essential requirement relevant to article 3.3 of the R&TTE Directive [1] are not in the scope of any part of this EN 302 217 series. They may be found in EN 301 489-1 [i.26] and EN 301 489-4 [i.27]. NOTE: A list of such harmonised ENs is available on the web site http://www.newapproach.org. For administration's guidance when notifying their regulated interfaces in accordance with article 4.1 of the R&TTE Directive [1], annex B provides explanatory considerations on the applicability of the TCAM-RIG format for P-P fixed links. An example of such a notification is also provided. Annex B has been elaborated in co-ordination with the CEPT ECC WGSE.

Major variants with respect to previous published version • System options identification has been changed, in line with corresponding changes in Parts 2-1 [i.33] and 2-2 [i.34] of EN 302 217. Old systems notations (A.1, … B.1, … C.1, … D.1, … E.1 ….) have been removed and the system capacity is defined in term of minimum Radio Interface Capacity (RIC) rather than previous hierarchic PDH/SDH interfaces. Each equipment in the scope of the present document refers to a coherent set of transmitter and receiver requirements uniquely defined on the basis of the following identifying parameters: 1) operating frequency band; 2) operating radio frequency channel separation; SIST EN 302 217-1 V2.1.1:2013

ETSI ETSI EN 302 217-1 V2.1.1 (2013-07) 5 3) spectral efficiency class, to which the minimum RIC density is associated. • Cross reference to older "historical" source ENs, no longer of interest has been moved to an annex. • Required new and updated "definitions". • Alignment of frequency bands and equipment options introduced in other parts of EN 302 217 series. Introduction (i) Generality and historical background Digital Fixed Radio Systems (DFRS), used in European countries, had been historically specified in a relatively large number of specific European Norms produced by ETSI. Those previous documents, already superseded by first version of this EN 302 217 series, contained both essential requirements 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. Standards for point-to-point systems, including antennas, cover a very large range of traffic capacities, channel separations (CS), 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 86 GHz Traffic capacities from 9,6 kbit/s to 622 Mbit/s and to Gigabit/s and above in the highest bands Channel separations from 25 kHz to 112 MHz and to Gigahertz and above in the highest bands Modulation formats from 2 to 2 048 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/BWA/MWA 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 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]. EN 302 217 series meet 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 [i.34], EN 302 217-3 [i.35] and EN 302 217-4-2 [i.37] are relevant to essential requirements under article 3.2 of the R&TTE Directive [1]. Additional system can be added for new available FS bands and for completing market available options. SIST EN 302 217-1 V2.1.1:2013

ETSI ETSI EN 302 217-1 V2.1.1 (2013-07) 6 In the present document, equipment 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 [i.33] and EN 302 217-2-2 [i.34], 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 around 60 MHz and from 1,75 MHz 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; Ea frequency bands from 71 GHz to 76 GHz and 81 GHz to 86 GHz (additional requirements when link-by-link coordination is applied); F definition of equivalent data rates for packet data, PDH/SDH and other signals on the traffic interface. In the same way EN 302 217-3 [i.35] three families are identified for frequency bands where either co-ordinated or uncoordinated deployment might be applied (see note), corresponding to annexes referenced from UA to UC. UA frequency band from 57 GHz to 59 GHz; UB frequency band from 64 GHz to 66 GHz; UBa frequency band from 57 GHz to 66 GHz (alternative, in overlapping bands, to UA and UB); UC frequency bands from 71 GHz to 76 GHz and 81 GHz to 86 GHz. NOTE: In these bands, CEPT administrations might have different views on the licensing and deployment requirements, ranging among uncoordinated, user self coordination (sometimes called "light licensing") or conventional link-by-link coordination. Therefore, from R&TTE Directive [1] point of view, the minimum of characteristics are considered among essential requirements, unless there is clear evidence that link-by-link coordination is the predominant method and additional requirements are consequently defined in EN 302 217-2-2 [i.34]; in this case, the supplier may chose between a "minimal" or a more complete assessment according the extension of the market addressed. (ii) Cross references to previously relevant ENs and TSs The EN 302 217 series replaced and superseded a number of older standards (frequency and/or capacity oriented), which remained, only as "historical" documents, in the ETSI data base. Provided that they may still be referenced in some documentation, annex C provides, for information, an overview of the correspondence between equipment considered in those standards and part/annexes in the present document. Table 2: Void (iii) Summary of system options provided A number of options for equipment implementation are identified in EN 302 217 series; the set of characteristics applicable to each option is uniquely identified through three parameters: • operating frequency band; • operating radio frequency channel separation (CS); • spectral efficiency class (as defined in EN 302 217-2-2 [i.34]). Each option so identified has a "nominal" payload requirement in term of minimum RIC (Radio Interface Capacity) to be fulfilled when packet payloads are used (e.g. Ethernet, ATM, etc.); in case PDH/SDH traffic are alternatively provided, annex F of EN 302 217-2-2 [i.34] gives the translation from the minimum RIC to the minimum hierarchic interfaces. SIST EN 302 217-1 V2.1.1:2013

ETSI ETSI EN 302 217-1 V2.1.1 (2013-07) 7 Table 3 summarizes the relevant cross-reference between channel separation in various Fixed Service frequency bands and the available options of equipment provided in EN 302 217 series. They are shown in term of the minimum RIC payload, which, depending on the channel separation, correspond to a specific spectral efficiency class detailed in clause 1.2 of EN 302 217-2-2 [i.34] (identified, with increasing spectral efficiency, as classes 1, 2, 3, 4L, 4H, 5L, 5H, 6L, 6H 7 and 8). In classes from 5 to 8, two further sub-classes suffix (i.e. A and B) are provided for the same channel separation depending on whether ACAP or CCDP operation is, respectively, considered for the equipment use. The minimum RIC payload in tables 3a and 3b are the minimum required for conformance to the present document and are based on the "minimum RIC density" defined, for each spectral efficiency class, in clause 1.2 of EN 302 217-2-2 [i.34]. Only some cases of systems in annex A, due to the smaller channel separation provided, are (exceptionally) labelled with typical gross bit rate rather than minimum RIC capacity rates. However, equipment may offer a variety of base band interfaces, e.g. typical hierarchical rates PDH or SDH, ISDN, Ethernet as well as mixture of these or other standardised interfaces. Mapping/multiplexing of the various base-band interfaces into common frame(s) suitable for radio transmission may be done using standardised higher hierarchical frames or other proprietary methods. Tables F.1a through F.1h in annex F of EN 302 217-2-2 [i.34] summarise the "minimum RIC" considered in the present document and, when only PDH or SDH interfaces are provided, give the equivalent capacity in term of number of 2 048 Mbit/s streams provided as multiple or single multiplexed PDH or SDH interfaces. These minimum capacities will be associated to the relevant channel separation and spectral efficiency classes defined. The cells in tables 3a and 3b are filled only on the basis of available physical single equipment transmission capacity (up to a minimum RIC of 862 Mbit/s for class 8 systems), which is relevant for R&TTE Directive [1] Art. 3.2 assessment. Doubled capacity is, in principle, possible for any option using CCDP operation or, more in general, subdividing the payload over two channels; however, specific test procedures are provided in EN 302 217-2-2 [i.34] only for STM-4 interface or other high speed data interfaces when their payload is split over more than one equipment.

SIST EN 302 217-1 V2.1.1:2013

ETSI ETSI EN 302 217-1 V2.1.1 (2013-07) 10 (iv) User's guide The requirements applicable to a specific point to point digital fixed radio systems (including its antenna) are summarised in figure 0 showing the major structure of the whole EN 302 217 series. The requirements are subdivided across the six parts of the EN series corresponding to their four major categories. The first category (the present document) corresponds to "common" system independent characteristics which are either common to the whole family of equipment, 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 EN 302 217 series.

The second category (found in EN 302 217-2-1 [i.33] and EN 302 217-4-1 [i.36]) corresponds to "complementary" characteristics and requirements, which are not relevant to article 3.2 of the R&TTE Directive [1] but may guarantee better performance to the actual deployed links. Therefore, the supplier may wish to claim compliance to all or some of these requirements for showing enhanced characteristics of its product. However, for completeness, EN 302 217-2-1 [i.33] and EN 302 217-4-1 [i.36] provide comprehensive 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 [i.34], for equipment operating in co-ordinated frequency bands, and EN 302 217-4-2 [i.37], for antennas. 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 limits for main and complementary requirements that are not common or parameterized for all of the equipment covered by one part, but specific to one frequency range, one RIC or PDH/SDH capacity, etc., are located in annexes. The third category (EN 302 217-2-2 [i.34] and EN 302 217-4-2 [i.37]) is for equipment intended for frequency bands where link-by-link radio frequency coordination (either under administration control or required to the users in licensing procedure) over a specific radio frequency channels arrangement is generally used; it corresponds to essential phenomena, with respect to article 3.2 of the R&TTE Directive [1] and are consequently defined in harmonized standards. In this case a complete set of TX and RX parameters is retained essential and requirements are provided in the same format as in EN 302 217-2-1 [i.33] and EN 302 217-4-1 [i.36]. 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 RIC or PDH/SDH capacity, etc, are located in annexes. Reference to each annex is the same for EN 302 217-2-1 [i.33] as in EN 302 217-2-2 [i.34]. An HS-RTT (requirements table) summarizes those requirements to be addressed in order to claim compliance. The fourth category (EN 302 217-3 [i.35] and still EN 302 217-4-2 [i.37]) is for equipment intended for frequency bands where, for their propagation or regulatory nature, the conventional link-by-link radio frequency coordination is not generally used and a number of administrations may also apply less restrictive (and less protecting) regulatory measures. It still corresponds to essential phenomena, with respect to article 3.2 of the R&TTE Directive [1] and are consequently defined as harmonized standards. In this case a reduced set of TX and RX parameters is retained essential; however, when the coordinated deployment is considered predominant, additional set of requirements is further included in EN 302 217-2-2 [i.34] and the supplier may chose between the "minimal" or the more complete assessment according the extension of the market addressed. To conclude, EN 302 217 series will be used as a decision tree, from the present document down to the relevant annexes/sub-annexes of parts EN 302 217-2-1 [i.33], EN 302 217-2-2 [i.34] and EN 302 217-3 [i.35].

At every level, a check of compliance is recommended to be performed. SIST EN 302 217-1 V2.1.1:2013

• System options identification has been changed, in line with corresponding changes in Parts 2-1 [i.33] and

2-2 [i.34] of EN 302 217. Old systems notations (A.1, … B.1, … C.1, … D.1, … E.1 ….) have been removed

and the system capacity is defined in term of minimum Radio Interface Capacity (RIC) rather than previous

hierarchic PDH/SDH interfaces. Each equipment in the scope of the present document refers to a coherent set

of transmitter and receiver requirements uniquely defined on the basis of the following identifying parameters:

1) operating frequency band;
2) operating radio frequency channel separation;
ETSI

3) spectral efficiency class, to which the minimum RIC density is associated.

• Cross reference to older "historical" source ENs, no longer of interest has been moved to an annex.

• Required new and updated "definitions".

• Alignment of frequency bands and equipment options introduced in other parts of EN 302 217 series.

Introduction
(i) Generality and historical background

Digital Fixed Radio Systems (DFRS), used in European countries, had been historically specified in a relatively large

number of specific European Norms produced by ETSI.

Those previous documents, already superseded by first version of this EN 302 217 series, contained both essential

requirements 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.

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

separations (CS), 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 86 GHz

Traffic capacities from 9,6 kbit/s to 622 Mbit/s and to Gigabit/s and above in the highest bands

Channel separations from 25 kHz to 112 MHz and to Gigahertz and above in the highest bands

Modulation formats from 2 to 2 048 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/BWA/MWA 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 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]. EN 302 217 series meet 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 [i.34], EN 302 217-3 [i.35] and EN 302 217-4-2 [i.37] are relevant to essential requirements under

article 3.2 of the R&TTE Directive [1]. Additional system can be added for new available FS bands and for completing

market available options.
ETSI
---------------------- Page: 5 ----------------------
6 ETSI EN 302 217-1 V2.1.1 (2013-07)

In the present document, equipment 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 [i.33] and EN 302 217-2-2 [i.34], 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 around 60 MHz and from 1,75 MHz 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;

Ea frequency bands from 71 GHz to 76 GHz and 81 GHz to 86 GHz (additional requirements when link-by-link

coordination is applied);

F definition of equivalent data rates for packet data, PDH/SDH and other signals on the traffic interface.

In the same way EN 302 217-3 [i.35] three families are identified for frequency bands where either co-ordinated or

uncoordinated deployment might be applied (see note), corresponding to annexes referenced from UA to UC.

UA frequency band from 57 GHz to 59 GHz;
UB frequency band from 64 GHz to 66 GHz;

UBa frequency band from 57 GHz to 66 GHz (alternative, in overlapping bands, to UA and UB);

UC frequency bands from 71 GHz to 76 GHz and 81 GHz to 86 GHz.

NOTE: In these bands, CEPT administrations might have different views on the licensing and deployment

requirements, ranging among uncoordinated, user self coordination (sometimes called "light licensing")

or conventional link-by-link coordination. Therefore, from R&TTE Directive [1] point of view, the

minimum of characteristics are considered among essential requirements, unless there is clear evidence

that link-by-link coordination is the predominant method and additional requirements are consequently

defined in EN 302 217-2-2 [i.34]; in this case, the supplier may chose between a "minimal" or a more

complete assessment according the extension of the market addressed.
(ii) Cross references to previously relevant ENs and TSs

The EN 302 217 series replaced and superseded a number of older standards (frequency and/or capacity oriented),

which remained, only as "historical" documents, in the ETSI data base. Provided that they may still be referenced in

some documentation, annex C provides, for information, an overview of the correspondence between equipment

considered in those standards and part/annexes in the present document.
Table 2: Void
(iii) Summary of system options provided

A number of options for equipment implementation are identified in EN 302 217 series; the set of characteristics

applicable to each option is uniquely identified through three parameters:
• operating frequency band;
• operating radio frequency channel separation (CS);
• spectral efficiency class (as defined in EN 302 217-2-2 [i.34]).

Each option so identified has a "nominal" payload requirement in term of minimum RIC (Radio Interface Capacity) to

be fulfilled when packet payloads are used (e.g. Ethernet, ATM, etc.); in case PDH/SDH traffic are alternatively

provided, annex F of EN 302 217-2-2 [i.34] gives the translation from the minimum RIC to the minimum hierarchic

interfaces.
ETSI
---------------------- Page: 6 ----------------------
7 ETSI EN 302 217-1 V2.1.1 (2013-07)

Table 3 summarizes the relevant cross-reference between channel separation in various Fixed Service frequency bands

and the available options of equipment provided in EN 302 217 series. They are shown in term of the minimum RIC

payload, which, depending on the channel separation, correspond to a specific spectral efficiency class detailed in

clause 1.2 of EN 302 217-2-2 [i.34] (identified, with increasing spectral efficiency, as classes 1, 2, 3, 4L, 4H, 5L, 5H,

6L, 6H 7 and 8). In classes from 5 to 8, two further sub-classes suffix (i.e. A and B) are provided for the same channel

separation depending on whether ACAP or CCDP operation is, respectively, considered for the equipment use.

The minimum RIC payload in tables 3a and 3b are the minimum required for conformance to the present document and

are based on the "minimum RIC density" defined, for each spectral efficiency class, in clause 1.2 of

EN 302 217-2-2 [i.34]. Only some cases of systems in annex A, due to the smaller channel separation provided, are

(exceptionally) labelled with typical gross bit rate rather than minimum RIC capacity rates.

However, equipment may offer a variety of base band interfaces, e.g. typical hierarchical rates PDH or SDH, ISDN,

Ethernet as well as mixture of these or other standardised interfaces. Mapping/multiplexing of the various base-band

interfaces into common frame(s) suitable for radio transmission may be done using standardised higher hierarchical

frames or other proprietary methods.

Tables F.1a through F.1h in annex F of EN 302 217-2-2 [i.34] summarise the "minimum RIC" considered in the present

document and, when only PDH or SDH interfaces are provided, give the equivalent capacity in term of number of

2 048 Mbit/s streams provided as multiple or single multiplexed PDH or SDH interfaces. These minimum capacities

will be associated to the relevant channel separation and spectral efficiency classes defined.

The cells in tables 3a and 3b are filled only on the basis of available physical single equipment transmission capacity

(up to a minimum RIC of 862 Mbit/s for class 8 systems), which is relevant for R&TTE Directive [1] Art. 3.2

assessment. Doubled capacity is, in principle, possible for any option using CCDP operation or, more in general,

subdividing the payload over two channels; however, specific test procedures are provided in EN 302 217-2-2 [i.34]

only for STM-4 interface or other high speed data interfaces when their payload is split over more than one equipment.

(iv) User's guide

The requirements applicable to a specific point to point digital fixed radio systems (including its antenna) are

summarised in figure 0 showing the major structure of the whole EN 302 217 series. The requirements are subdivided

across the six parts of the EN series corresponding to their four major categories.

The first category (the present document) corresponds to "common" system independent characteristics which are

either common to the whole family of equipment, 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 EN 302 217 series.

The second category (found in EN 302 217-2-1 [i.33] and EN 302 217-4-1 [i.36]) corresponds to "complementary"

characteristics and requirements, which are not relevant to article 3.2 of the R&TTE Directive [1] but may guarantee

better performance to the actual deployed links. Therefore, the supplier may wish to claim compliance to all or some of

these requirements for showing enhanced characteristics of its product.

However, for completeness, EN 302 217-2-1 [i.33] and EN 302 217-4-1 [i.36] provide comprehensive 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 [i.34], for equipment operating in co-ordinated

frequency bands, and EN 302 217-4-2 [i.37], for antennas.

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 limits for main and complementary requirements that are not common or parameterized for all of the equipment

covered by one part, but specific to one frequency range, one RIC or PDH/SDH capacity, etc., are located in annexes.

The third category (EN 302 217-2-2 [i.34] and EN 302 217-4-2 [i.37]) is for equipment intended for frequency bands

where link-by-link radio frequency coordination (either under administration control or required to the users in licensing

procedure) over a specific radio frequency channels arrangement is generally used; it corresponds to essential

phenomena, with respect to article 3.2 of the R&TTE Directive [1] and are consequently defined in harmonized

standards. In this case a complete set of TX and RX parameters is retained essential and requirements are provided in

the same format as in EN 302 217-2-1 [i.33] and EN 302 217-4-1 [i.36]. 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 RIC or PDH/SDH capacity, etc, are located in annexes. Reference to each annex is the same for

EN 302 217-2-1 [i.33] as in EN 302 217-2-2 [i.34]. An HS-RTT (requirements table) summarizes those requirements to

be addressed in order to claim compliance.

The fourth category (EN 302 217-3 [i.35] and still EN 302 217-4-2 [i.37]) is for equipment intended for frequency

bands where, for their propagation or regulatory nature, the conventional link-by-link radio frequency coordination is

not generally used and a number of administrations may also apply less restrictive (and less protecting) regulatory

measures. It still corresponds to essential phenomena, with respect to article 3.2 of the R&TTE Directive [1] and are

consequently defined as harmonized standards. In this case a reduced set of TX and RX parameters is retained essential;

however, when the coordinated deployment is considered predominant, additional set of requirements is further

included in EN 302 217-2-2 [i.34] and the supplier may chose between the "minimal" or the more complete assessment

according the extension of the market addressed.

To conclude, EN 302 217 series will be used as a decision tree, from the present document down to the relevant

annexes/sub-annexes of parts EN 302 217-2-1 [i.33], EN 302 217-2-2 [i.34] and EN 302 217-3 [i.35].
