Satelitske zemeljske postaje in sistemi (SES) - Harmonizirani standard, ki zajema bistvene zahteve člena 3.2 direktive 2014/53/EU, za mobilne zemeljske postaje (MES) geostacionarnih mobilnih satelitskih sistemov, vključno z ročnimi zemeljskimi postajami, za satelitska osebna komunikacijska omrežja (S-PCN) pri mobilni satelitski storitvi (MSS), ki delujejo v frekvenčnih pasovih 1,5 GHz in 1,6 GHz

Ta dokument se uporablja za satelitska osebna komunikacijska omrežja (S-PCN) mobilnih zemeljskih postaj (MES) za geostacionarne mobilne satelitske sisteme z ekvivalentno izotropično močjo sevanja, ki je manjša ali enaka 15 dBW.
Dokument določa minimalne zahteve glede zmogljivosti in tehnične lastnosti mobilnih zemeljskih postaj, ki imajo sposobnost oddajanja in sprejemanja ter delujejo v satelitskem osebnem komunikacijskem omrežju v kateri koli kombinaciji vseh ali katerega koli od frekvenčnih podpasov mobilne satelitske storitve 1 in 2, opredeljenih v preglednici 1.
Te mobilne zemeljske postaje se krmilijo in spremljajo z napravo za krmiljenje omrežja (NCF). Naprava za krmiljenje omrežja ne spada na področje uporabe tega dokumenta.
Satelitsko osebno komunikacijsko omrežje mobilne zemeljske postaje je lahko ročna prenosna oprema, ki je pritrjena ali polpritrjena na vozilo in povezana z gostiteljem, ali je element v večnačinovnem terminalu; sestavljeno je lahko iz več modulov s povezanimi priključki in uporabniškim vmesnikom ali je samozadostna enota.
Če je mobilna zemeljska postaja element v večnačinovnem terminalu, zahteve tega dokumenta veljajo samo za satelitsko osebno komunikacijsko omrežje zemeljske mobilne postaje v terminalu, ki deluje v frekvenčnem pasu MSS, podanem v preglednici 1, razen če je v dokumentu drugače navedeno.
Ta dokument zajema določbe člena 3.2 Direktive 2014/53/EU [i.5] (direktiva RE), kjer je navedeno, da »... mora biti radijska oprema izdelana tako, da optimalno uporablja in podpira učinkovito rabo radijskega spektra z namenom preprečevanja škodljivih motenj«. Poleg tega dokumenta se lahko za opremo na področju uporabe tega dokumenta uporabljajo tudi drugi standardi EN, ki določajo tehnične zahteve v zvezi z bistvenimi zahtevami iz drugih delov 3. člena Direktive o radijski opremi (RED) [i.5].

ETSI ETSI EN 301 681 V2.1.2 (2016-11) 7 Introduction The present document is part of a set of standards developed by ETSI and is designed to fit in a modular structure to cover all radio equipment within the scope of the RE Directive [i.5]. The modular structure is shown in ETSI EG 201 399 [i.1]. The determination of the parameters of the user earth stations using a given satellite for the protection of the spectrum allocated to that satellite, is considered to be under the responsibility of the satellite operator or the satellite network operators. Following the WRC-03 decision [i.4] to allocate to MSS the bands 1 518 MHz to 1 525 MHz (space to Earth) and 1 668 MHz to 1 675 MHz (Earth to space) and the conclusions of WRC-07, a new set of emission requirements for LMESs that are capable of transmitting in the frequency band from 1 668,0 MHz to 1 675,0 MHz were specified. The two parts of the L-band frequency allocations are treated as two sub-bands which may be used separately or in any combination. The original L-band allocation is referenced in the present document as "sub-band 1" and the extended L-band is referenced as "sub-band 2". Table 3a is applicable for MESs that are capable of transmitting in any combination of either or both of these sub-bands. Table 3a is recommended for all new MESs, including MESs that can only operate in sub-band 1. The applicant may choose between table 3 and table 3a for new MESs that are capable of transmitting in only the sub-band 1: the applicant has to declare which alternative is used.

The present document specifies a new set of receiver performance requirements for LMESs under the new Radio Equipment Directive 2014/53/EU [i.5]. Figure 1: Void Recital 10 of Directive 2014/53/EU [i.5] states that "In order to ensure that radio equipment uses the radio spectrum effectively and supports the efficient use of radio spectrum, radio equipment should be constructed so that: in the case of a transmitter, when the transmitter is properly installed, maintained and used for its intended purpose it generates radio waves emissions that do not create harmful interference, while unwanted radio waves emissions generated by the transmitter (e.g. in adjacent channels) with a potential negative impact on the goals of radio spectrum policy should be limited to such a level that, according to the state of the art, harmful interference is avoided; and, in the case of a receiver, it has a level of performance that allows it to operate as intended and protects it against the risk of harmful interference, in particular from shared or adjacent channels, and, in so doing, supports improvements in the efficient use of shared or adjacent channels." Recital 11 of Directive 2014/53/EU [i.5] states that "Although receivers do not themselves cause harmful interference, reception capabilities are an increasingly important factor in ensuring the efficient use of radio spectrum by way of an increased resilience of receivers against harmful interference and unwanted signals on the basis of the relevant essential requirements of Union harmonisation legislation." SIST EN 301 681 V2.1.2:2017

ETSI ETSI EN 301 681 V2.1.2 (2016-11) 8 1 Scope The present document applies to S-PCN MES for Geostationary mobile satellite systems with an EIRP less than or equal to 15 dBW. The present document sets out the minimum performance requirements and technical characteristics of Mobile Earth Stations (MES) with both transmit and receive capabilities for operation in a Satellite Personal Communication Network (S-PCN) in any combination of all or any part of the Mobile Satellite Service (MSS) frequency bands sub-band 1 and sub-band 2 defined in table 1. These MESs are controlled and monitored by a Network Control Facility (NCF). The NCF is outside the scope of the present document. Table 1: Mobile Satellite Service (MSS) frequency band Sub-band Transmission path MSS frequency band 1 MESs transmit 1 1 626,5 MHz to 1 660,5 MHz MESs receive 1 1 525 MHz to 1 559 MHz 2 MESs transmit 2 1 668,0 MHz to 1 675,0 MHz MESs receive 2 1 518,0 MHz to 1 525,0 MHz

7 ETSI EN 301 681 V2.1.2 (2016-11)
Introduction

The present document is part of a set of standards developed by ETSI and is designed to fit in a modular structure to

cover all radio equipment within the scope of the RE Directive [i.5]. The modular structure is shown in ETSI

EG 201 399 [i.1]. The determination of the parameters of the user earth stations using a given satellite for the protection

of the spectrum allocated to that satellite, is considered to be under the responsibility of the satellite operator or the

satellite network operators.

Following the WRC-03 decision [i.4] to allocate to MSS the bands 1 518 MHz to 1 525 MHz (space to Earth) and

1 668 MHz to 1 675 MHz (Earth to space) and the conclusions of WRC-07, a new set of emission requirements for

LMESs that are capable of transmitting in the frequency band from 1 668,0 MHz to 1 675,0 MHz were specified.

The two parts of the L-band frequency allocations are treated as two sub-bands which may be used separately or in any

combination. The original L-band allocation is referenced in the present document as "sub-band 1" and the extended

L-band is referenced as "sub-band 2".

Table 3a is applicable for MESs that are capable of transmitting in any combination of either or both of these sub-bands.

Table 3a is recommended for all new MESs, including MESs that can only operate in sub-band 1.

The applicant may choose between table 3 and table 3a for new MESs that are capable of transmitting in only the

sub-band 1: the applicant has to declare which alternative is used.

The present document specifies a new set of receiver performance requirements for LMESs under the new Radio

Equipment Directive 2014/53/EU [i.5].
Figure 1: Void

Recital 10 of Directive 2014/53/EU [i.5] states that "In order to ensure that radio equipment uses the radio spectrum

effectively and supports the efficient use of radio spectrum, radio equipment should be constructed so that: in the case

of a transmitter, when the transmitter is properly installed, maintained and used for its intended purpose it generates

radio waves emissions that do not create harmful interference, while unwanted radio waves emissions generated by the

transmitter (e.g. in adjacent channels) with a potential negative impact on the goals of radio spectrum policy should be

limited to such a level that, according to the state of the art, harmful interference is avoided; and, in the case of a

receiver, it has a level of performance that allows it to operate as intended and protects it against the risk of harmful

interference, in particular from shared or adjacent channels, and, in so doing, supports improvements in the efficient

use of shared or adjacent channels."

Recital 11 of Directive 2014/53/EU [i.5] states that "Although receivers do not themselves cause harmful interference,

reception capabilities are an increasingly important factor in ensuring the efficient use of radio spectrum by way of an

increased resilience of receivers against harmful interference and unwanted signals on the basis of the relevant

essential requirements of Union harmonisation legislation."

1 Scope

The present document applies to S-PCN MES for Geostationary mobile satellite systems with an EIRP less than or

equal to 15 dBW.

The present document sets out the minimum performance requirements and technical characteristics of Mobile Earth

Stations (MES) with both transmit and receive capabilities for operation in a Satellite Personal Communication

Network (S-PCN) in any combination of all or any part of the Mobile Satellite Service (MSS) frequency bands

sub-band 1 and sub-band 2 defined in table 1.

These MESs are controlled and monitored by a Network Control Facility (NCF). The NCF is outside the scope of the

present document.
Table 1: Mobile Satellite Service (MSS) frequency band
Sub-band Transmission path MSS frequency band
1 MESs transmit 1 1 626,5 MHz to 1 660,5 MHz
MESs receive 1 1 525 MHz to 1 559 MHz
2 MESs transmit 2 1 668,0 MHz to 1 675,0 MHz
MESs receive 2 1 518,0 MHz to 1 525,0 MHz

An S-PCN MES may be handheld, portable, vehicle-mounted, host connected, semi-fixed or fixed equipment, or may

be an element in a multimode terminal; it may consist of a number of modules with associated connections and user

interface, or may be a self-contained single unit.

If the MES is an element in a multimode terminal, unless otherwise stated in the present document, its requi

7 Final draft ETSI EN 301 681 V2.1.1 (2016-07)
Introduction

The present document is part of a set of standards developed by ETSI and is designed to fit in a modular structure to

cover all radio equipment within the scope of the RE Directive [9]. The modular structure is shown in ETSI

EG 201 399 [i.1]. The determination of the parameters of the user earth stations using a given satellite for the protection

of the spectrum allocated to that satellite, is considered to be under the responsibility of the satellite operator or the

satellite network operators.

Following the WRC-03 decision [i.4] to allocate to MSS the bands 1 518 MHz to 1 525 MHz (space to Earth) and

1 668 MHz to 1 675 MHz (Earth to space) and the conclusions of WRC-07, a new set of emission requirements for

LMESs that are capable of transmitting in the frequency band from 1 668,0 MHz to 1 675,0 MHz were specified.

The two parts of the L-band frequency allocations are treated as two sub-bands which may be used separately or in any

combination. The original L-band allocation is referenced in the present document as "sub-band 1" and the extended

L-band is referenced as "sub-band 2".

Table 3a is applicable for MESs that are capable of transmitting in any combination of either or both of these sub-bands.

Table 3a is recommended for all new MESs, including MESs that can only operate in sub-band 1.

The applicant may choose between table 3 and table 3a for new MESs that are capable of transmitting in only the

sub-band 1: the applicant has to declare which alternative is used.

The present document specifies a new set of receiver performance requirements for LMESs under the new Radio

Equipment Directive 2014/53/EU [9].

1 Scope

The present document applies to S-PCN MES for Geostationary mobile satellite systems with an EIRP less than or

equal to 15 dBW.

The present document sets out the minimum performance requirements and technical characteristics of Mobile Earth

Stations (MES) with both transmit and receive capabilities for operation in a Satellite Personal Communication

Network (S-PCN) in any combination of all or any part of the Mobile Satellite Service (MSS) frequency bands

sub-band 1 and sub-band 2 defined in table 1.

These MESs are controlled and monitored by a Network Control Facility (NCF). The NCF is outside the scope of the

present document.
Table 1: Mobile Satellite Service (MSS) frequency band
Sub-band Transmission path MSS frequency band
1 MESs transmit 1 1 626,5 MHz to 1 660,5 MHz
MESs receive 1 1 525 MHz to 1 559 MHz
2 MESs transmit 2 1 668,0 MHz to 1 675,0 MHz
MESs receive 2 1 518,0 MHz to 1 525,0 MHz

An S-PCN MES may be handheld, portable, vehicle-mounted, host connected, semi-fixed or fixed equipment, or may

be an element in a multimode terminal; it may consist of a number of modules with associated connections and user

interface, or may be a self-contained single unit.

If the MES is an element in a multimode terminal, unless otherwise stated in the present document, its requirements

apply only to the S-PCN MES element of the terminal operating in the MSS frequency band given in table 1.

The present document is intended to cover the provisions of Directive 2014/53/EU [9] (RE Directive) article 3.2 which

states that "….radio equipment shall be so constructed that it both effectively uses and supports the efficient use of radio

spectrum in order to avoid harmful interference". 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 Radio Equipment Directive

(RED) [9] may 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.

Foreword

This draft Harmonised European Standard (EN) has been produced by ETSI Technical Committee Satellite Earth

Stations and Systems (SES), and is now submitted for the combined Public Enquiry and Vote phase of the ETSI

standards EN Approval Procedure.

The present document has been prepared under the Commission's standardisation request C(2015) 5376 final [i.3] to

provide one voluntary means of conforming to the essential requirements of Directive 2014/53/EU on the harmonisation

of the laws of the Member States relating to the making available on the market of radio equipment and repealing

Directive 1999/5/EC [9].

Once the present document is cited in the Official Journal of the European Union under that Directive, compliance with

the normative clauses of the present document given in table A.1 confers, within the limits of the scope of the present

document, a presumption of conformity with the corresponding essential requirements of that Directive, and associated

EFTA regulations.
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

Modal verbs terminology

In the present document "shall", "shall not", "should", "should not", "may", "need not", "will", "will not", "can" and

"cannot" are to be interpreted as described in clause 3.2 of the ETSI Drafting Rules (Verbal forms for the expression of

provisions).

"must" and "must not" are NOT allowed in ETSI deliverables except when used in direct citation.

Introduction

The present document is part of a set of standards developed by ETSI and is designed to fit in a modular structure to

cover all radio equipment within the scope of the RE Directive [9]. The modular structure is shown in ETSI

EG 201 399 [i.1]. The determination of the parameters of the user earth stations using a given satellite for the protection

of the spectrum allocated to that satellite, is considered to be under the responsibility of the satellite operator or the

satellite network operators.

7 Draft ETSI EN 301 681 V2.1.0 (2016-02)

Following the WRC-03 decision [i.4] to allocate to MSS the bands 1 518 MHz to 1 525 MHz (space to Earth) and

1 668 MHz to 1 675 MHz (Earth to space) and the conclusions of WRC-07,a new set of emission requirements for

LMESs that are capable of transmitting in the frequency band from 1 668,0 MHz to 1 675,0 MHz were specified.

The two parts of the L-band frequency allocations are treated as two sub-bands which may be used separately or in any

combination. The original L-band allocation is referenced in the present document as "sub-band 1" and the extended

L-band is referenced as "sub-band 2".

Table 3a is applicable for MESs that are capable of transmitting in any combination of either or both of these sub-bands.

Table 3a is recommended for all new MESs, including MESs that can only operate in sub-band 1.

The applicant may choose between table 3 and table 3a for new MESs that are capable of transmitting in only the

sub-band 1: the applicant has to declare which alternative is used.

The present document specifies a new set of receiver performance requirements for LMESs under the new Radio

Equipment Directive 2014/53/EU [9].

1 Scope

The present document applies to S-PCN MES for Geostationary mobile satellite systems with an EIRP less than or

equal to 15 dBW.

The present document sets out the minimum performance requirements and technical characteristics of Mobile Earth

Stations (MES) with both transmit and receive capabilities for operation in a Satellite Personal Communication

Network (S-PCN) in any combination of all or any part of the Mobile Satellite Service (MSS) frequency bands

sub-band 1 and sub-band 2 defined in table 1.

These MESs are controlled and monitored by a Network Control Facility (NCF). The NCF is outside the scope of the

present document.
Table 1: Mobile Satellite Service (MSS) frequency band
Sub-band Transmission path MSS frequency band
1 MESs transmit 1 1 626,5 MHz to 1 660,5 MHz
MESs receive 1 1 525 MHz to 1 559 MHz
2 MESs transmit 2 1 668,0 MHz to 1 675,0 MHz
MESs receive 2 1 518,0 MHz to 1 525,0 MHz

An S-PCN MES may be handheld, portable, vehicle-mounted, host connected, semi-fixed or fixed equipment, or may

be an element in a multimode terminal; it may consist of a number of modules with associated connections and user

interface, or may be a self contained single unit.

If the MES is an element in a multimode terminal, unless otherwise stated in the present document, its requirements

apply only to the S-PCN MES element of the terminal operating in the MSS frequency band given in table 1.

The present document is intended to cover the provisions of Directive 2014/53/EU [9] (RE Directive) article 3.2 which

states that "….radio equipment shall be so constructed that it both effectively uses and supports the efficient use of radio

spectrum in order to avoid harmful interference". 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 Radio Equipment Directive

(RED) [9] may 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.
