Fixed Radio Systems; Characteristics and requirements for point-to-point equipment and antennas; Part 3: Harmonized EN covering essential requirements of Article 3.2 of R&TTE Directive for equipment operating in frequency bands where no frequency co-ordination is applied

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 The present document is part of a set of standards designed to fit in a modular structure to cover all radio and telecommunications terminal equipment under the R&TTE Directive. Each standard is a module in the structure. The modular structure is shown in figure 1.

The left hand edge of figure 1 shows the different clauses of article 3 of the R&TTE Directive [1]. For article 3.3 various horizontal boxes are shown. Dotted lines indicate that at the time of publication of the present document essential requirements in these areas have to be adopted by the Commission. Whenever such essential requirements are adopted and as far and as long as they are applicable, they will justify individual standards whose scope is likely to be specified by function or interface type. The vertical boxes show the standards under article 3.2 for the use of the radio spectrum by radio equipment. The scopes of these standards are specified either by frequency (normally in the case where frequency bands are harmonized) or by radio equipment type. For article 3.1b the diagram shows EN 301 489 (see bibliography), the multi-part product EMC standard for radio used under the EMC Directive 89/336/EEC (see bibliography). NOTE: For Fixed Radio Systems EN, EN 301 489-1 (see bibliography) and EN 301 489-4 (see bibliography) are relevant. For article 3.1a the diagram shows the existing safety standards currently used under the LV Directive 73/23/EEC (see bibliography) and new standards covering human exposure to electromagnetic fields. New standards covering acoustic safety may also be required. The bottom of the figure 1 shows the relationship of the standards to radio equipment and telecommunications terminal equipment. Equipment may be radio equipment, telecommunications terminal equipment or both. A radio spectrum standard will apply if it is radio equipment. An article 3.3 standard will apply as well only if the relevant essential requirement under the R&TTE Directive [1] is adopted by the Commission and if the equipment in question is covered by the scope of the corresponding standard. Thus, depending on the nature of the equipment, the essential requirements under the R&TTE Directive [1] may be covered in a set of standards. The modularity principle has been taken because: • It minimizes the number of standards needed. Because equipment may, in fact, have multiple interfaces and functions it is not practicable to produce a single standard for each possible combination of functions that may occur in equipment. • It provides scope for standards to be added: - under article 3.2 when new frequency bands are agreed; or - under article 3.3 should the Commission take the necessary decisions without requiring alteration of standards that are already published. • It clarifies, simplifies and promotes the usage of Harmonized Standards as the relevant means of conformity assessment.

1 Scope The present document specifies the essential requirements for Digital Fixed Radio Systems (DFRS) operating in frequency bands, which do not require co-ordinated frequency planning. It 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 with EN 302 217-2-2 (see bibliography) and EN 302 217-4-2 [8] will replace and supersede, after a suitable transition period, the harmonized EN 301 751 (see bibliography) for all P-P equipment and antennas. Those parts of this multipart EN introduces, for systems (equipment and antennas) already covered by EN 301 751 (see bibliography), equal, technically equivalent or less stringent requirements. Therefore, from a strictly technical point of view, it is expected that equipment already conforming to the previous EN 301 751 (see bibliography), would not need a new test report for re-assessment of essential requirements according this new multipart EN; however, legal implications with respect to the declaration of conformity and equipment labelling are not in the scope of the present document. 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 [1] 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 302 217-4-2 [8], offers 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); • implemented procedure for free radio channel selection; • antenna directivity class alternatives (for different network density requirement). The present document is mainly intended to cover fixed radio equipment without integral antennas. However, it also applies to fixed radio systems products with integral antennas, for which all the technical requirements included in the present document and in EN 302 217-4-2 [8] apply. For more background information on the equipment and antenna parameters here identified as relevant to article 3.2 of R&TTE Directive see EG 201 399 (see bibliography) and TR 101 506 (see bibliography). For example, the frequency band 58 GHz is proposed to be used by various technologies for uncoordinated use of the band. Besides the RF-channel selection procedure, specified in clause 4.2 to avoid unacceptable interference situations, this band also benefits from the high and stable atmospheric attenuation which suppresses efficiently distant interferers (about 10 to 15 dB/km at sea level, refer to ITU-R Recommendation P.676 (see bibliography). For the purposes of the present document two equipment Classes are specified depending on the network requirements: • Class A: Digital equipment for High Density Fixed Service (HDFS) applications typically connected to public networks, which apply the RF-channel selection procedure (see clause 4.2), error performance and availability requirements (see EN 302 217-1 [7]). • Class B: Equipment without network requirements for quality of service, typically private connections. Typical applications for Class A equipment are interconnection between cellular networks where, in some cases, there is a need for short length connections (up to about 500 m). The RF channel selection procedure shall be used to protect existing systems from a new system being commissioned. However, the channel selection procedure may not guarantee interference free installation or operation in all cases, due to limitations in the procedure with respect to the variety of systems. Typical applications for Class B equipment are in private connections, such as video surveillance systems. SIST EN 302 217-3 V1.1.3:2005
