Satellite Personal Communications Networks (S-PCN); Mobile Earth Stations (MES), including handheld earth stations, for S-PCN in the 2,0 GHz bands under the Mobile Satellite Service (MSS); Terminal essential requirements

This TBR specifies those technical requirements under Article 4 of Council Directive 93/97/EEC [1] that apply to Mobile Earth Station (MES) equipment with both transmit and receive capabilities for operation in a Satellite - Personal Communications Network (S-PCN).  These MESs include handheld, portable and vehicle mounted equipment or may be a component in a multi-mode treminal; they may consist of a number of modules with associated connections and user interface, or may be self contained, single units. If the MES is a component in a multi-mode terminal, this TBR applies only to the MES component of the terminal, unless otherwise stated.  The frequency bands within which the MESs operate as as follows:  -1980-2010 MHz, (MES transmit) -2170-2200 MHz (MES receive).  The technical requirements in this TBR are in two major categories:  unwanted emission: to protect terrestrial and other satellite radio services from harmful interference generated by the MES in normal use;  MES control and monitoring: to speicfy the a minimum set of Control and Monitoring Functions (CMF) that shall be  implemented in each MES in order to minimise the probability that they originate unwanted transmissions that may give rise to harmful interference to other systems.  These requirements are taken from ETS 300 734 [3].  Network Control Facilities (NCF) for MES networks are defined by reference to  ETS 300 735 [2].  This TBR does not contain the essential requirements under articles 4f and 4g for interworking via the public telecommunications network, and does not provide any guarantee of correct interworking between MES equipment.  The Terminal Directive 91/263/EEC Articles 4a and 4b are covered by other Directives and therefore, are not covered by this TBR.

Foreword

This Technical Basis for Regulation (TBR) has been produced by the Satellite Earth Stations and Systems

(SES) Technical Committee of the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI).

The present document has been produced by ETSI in response to a mandate from the European

Commission issued under Council Directive 83/189/EEC (as amended) laying down a procedure for the

provision of information in the field of technical standards and regulations.

The present document is intended to become a Harmonized Standard, the reference of which will be

published in the Official Journal of the European Communities referencing the Council Directive

93/97/EEC of 29 October 1993 supplementing Directive 91/263/EEC in respect of satellite earth station

equipment ("the SES Directive").

A common technical regulation may be established by the European Commission in accordance with the

Directive.
Technical specifications relevant to the SES Directive are given in annex F.

1 Scope

This Technical Basis for Regulation (TBR) specifies those technical requirements under Article 4 of

Council Directive 93/97/EEC (SES Directive), supplementing Council Directive 91/263/EEC (TTE

Directive), in respect of satellite earth station equipment that apply to Mobile Earth Station (MES)

equipment with both transmit and receive capabilities for operation in a Satellite - Personal

Communications Network (S-PCN), in the Mobile Satellite Service (MSS) frequency bands given in

table 1.
Table 1: Mobile Satellite Service (MSS) frequency bands
MSS frequency bands
MESs transmit 1 980 to 2 010 MHz
MESs receive 2 170 to 2 200 MHz

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

equipment, or may be an element in a multi-mode 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 multi-mode terminal, unless otherwise stated in this TBR, its requirements

apply only to the S-PCN MES element of the terminal operating in the MSS frequency bands given in

table 1.

The technical requirements in this TBR are applied under Articles 4.1 and 4.3 of the SES Directive

referencing Article 4(e) of the TTE Directive, concerning effective use of the radio frequency spectrum,

including the effective use of orbital resources and the avoidance of harmful interference between space-

based and terrestrial communications systems and other technical systems. These requirements are in

two major categories:

unwanted emissions limits: to protect other radio services from harmful interference generated by the

MES in normal use;

MES Control and Monitoring Functions (CMF): to protect other radio services from unwanted

transmissions from the MES. The CMF in each MES is capable of answering to commands from the

Network Control Facilities (NCF) for its S-PCN.

NOTE: The requirements for Network Control Facilities (NCF) for S-PCN are contained in

ETS 300 735 (see annex G).
There are no technical requirements in this TBR under:

- Articles 4.1 and 4.4 of the SES Directive, referencing Article 4(c) of the TTE Directive as there are

no EMC requirements specific to the S-PCN MESs, nor under:

- Article 4.1 of the SES Directive, referencing Article 4(d) of the TTE Directive;

- Articles 4.1 and 4.5 of the SES Directive, referencing Article 4(f) of the TTE Directive;

- Articles 4.1 and 4.6 of the SES Directive, referencing Article 4(g) of the TTE Directive;

as, for the purposes of the SES Directive and the TTE Directive, the radio interface between the MES and

the S-PCN network is not regarded as a network termination point of a public telecommunications

network.

An MES may be subject to additional or alternative requirements in other TBRs depending on its

functionality, in particular if it supports a service which is considered a justified case for regulation of

terminal equipment interworking via the public telecommunications network.

rate measuring apparatus for data transmission".
3 Definitions and abbreviations
3.1 Definitions
For the purposes of this TBR, the following definitions apply:

applicant: A party seeking an approval, or to place an S-PCN MES on the European market, i.e. the

manufacturer of the equipment, or his authorized representative, or an equipment supplier to the

European market.

carrier-on state (allocated a channel): An MES is in this state when it is transmitting a signal in a

continuous or non-continuous mode.

carrier-off state (idle mode): An MES is in this state when it is powered-on but not transmitting a signal,

i.e. not in carrier-on state.

conducted measurement: A measurement of emissions from an antenna port of the MES made by

direct wired connection to the port.

Equivalent Isotropically Radiated Power (EIRP): The product of transmitter power and maximum

antenna gain, equivalent to an isotropic source radiating uniformly in all directions.

handheld: Indicates a PE MES which is self-contained and is small enough and light enough to be carried

and used during a call with one hand.

host-connected: Indicates an MES for which connection to or integration with host equipment is

necessary to offer functionality.

host equipment: Is any equipment which has a complete user functionality when not connected to the

MES, and to which the MES provides additional functionality, and to which connection is necessary for the

MES to offer functionality.

Installable Equipment (IE), Internally Mounted Equipment (IME) and Externally Mounted Equipment

(EME): An Installable Equipment (IE) is an equipment which is intended to be installed in a vehicle. An IE

may consist of one or several interconnected modules. The IE is composed of modules intended to be

externally mounted as declared by the applicant, and defined as Externally Mounted Equipment (EME)

and the remaining modules(s) as Internally Mounted Equipment (IME).

Laboratory Test Equipment (LTE): A logical grouping that contains the standard test equipment

provided by a test laboratory.
MSS band: A continuous range of frequencies allocated by the ITU to the MSS.

messages may originate from Special Test Equipment (STE).

nominated bandwidth (B ): The B of the Mobile Earth Station (MES) radio frequency transmission is

n n

wide enough to encompass all spectral elements of the transmission which have a level greater than the

specified levels of unwanted emissions. The B is defined relative to the MES actual carrier frequency f .

n c

B is the width of the frequency interval (f -a, f +b), where a and b, which shall be specified by the

n c c
applicant, may vary with f .
The frequency interval (f -a, f +b) shall not encompass more than either:
c c

c c

operational band: The sub-portion of the band 1 980 to 2 010 MHz which has been assigned in the

earth-to-space direction to the MSS network, within which the MES is operating.

Portable Equipment (PE): A Portable Equipment (PE) is generally intended to be self-contained, free

standing and portable. A PE would normally consist of a single module, but may consist of several

interconnected modules.
radiated measurement: A measurement of an actual radiated field.

Special Test Equipment (STE): An equipment which allows a test laboratory to control the MES so that

the tests required by this TBR can be performed.

Foreword

This Technical Basis for Regulation (TBR) has been produced by the Satellite Earth Stations and Systems

(SES) Technical Committee of the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI).

The present document has been produced by ETSI in response to a mandate from the European

Commission issued under Council Directive 83/189/EEC (as amended) laying down a procedure for the

provision of information in the field of technical standards and regulations.

The present document is intended to become a Harmonized Standard, the reference of which will be

published in the Official Journal of the European Communities referencing the Council Directive

93/97/EEC of 29 October 1993 supplementing Directive 91/263/EEC in respect of satellite earth station

equipment ("the SES Directive").

A common technical regulation may be established by the European Commission in accordance with the

Directive.
Technical specifications relevant to the SES Directive are given in annex F.

1 Scope

This Technical Basis for Regulation (TBR) specifies those technical requirements under Article 4 of

Council Directive 93/97/EEC (SES Directive), supplementing Council Directive 91/263/EEC (TTE

Directive), in respect of satellite earth station equipment that apply to Mobile Earth Station (MES)

equipment with both transmit and receive capabilities for operation in a Satellite - Personal

Communications Network (S-PCN), in the Mobile Satellite Service (MSS) frequency bands given in

table 1.
Table 1: Mobile Satellite Service (MSS) frequency bands
MSS frequency bands
MESs transmit 1 980 to 2 010 MHz
MESs receive 2 170 to 2 200 MHz

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

equipment, or may be an element in a multi-mode 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 multi-mode terminal, unless otherwise stated in this TBR, its requirements

apply only to the S-PCN MES element of the terminal operating in the MSS frequency bands given in

table 1.

The technical requirements in this TBR are applied under Articles 4.1 and 4.3 of the SES Directive

referencing Article 4(e) of the TTE Directive, concerning effective use of the radio frequency spectrum,

including the effective use of orbital resources and the avoidance of harmful interference between space-

based and terrestrial communications systems and other technical systems. These requirements are in

two major categories:

unwanted emissions limits: to protect other radio services from harmful interference generated by the

MES in normal use;

MES Control and Monitoring Functions (CMF): to protect other radio services from unwanted

transmissions from the MES. The CMF in each MES is capable of answering to commands from the

Network Control Facilities (NCF) for its S-PCN.

NOTE: The requirements for Network Control Facilities (NCF) for S-PCN are contained in

ETS 300 735 (see annex G).
There are no technical requirements in this TBR under:

- Articles 4.1 and 4.4 of the SES Directive, referencing Article 4(c) of the TTE Directive as there are

no EMC requirements specific to the S-PCN MESs, nor under:

- Article 4.1 of the SES Directive, referencing Article 4(d) of the TTE Directive;

- Articles 4.1 and 4.5 of the SES Directive, referencing Article 4(f) of the TTE Directive;

- Articles 4.1 and 4.6 of the SES Directive, referencing Article 4(g) of the TTE Directive;

as, for the purposes of the SES Directive and the TTE Directive, the radio interface between the MES and

the S-PCN network is not regarded as a network termination point of a public telecommunications

network.

An MES may be subject to additional or alternative requirements in other TBRs depending on its

functionality, in particular if it supports a service which is considered a justified case for regulation of

terminal equipment interworking via the public telecommunications network.

3.1 Definitions
For the purposes of this TBR, the following definitions apply:

applicant: A party seeking an approval, or to place an S-PCN MES on the European market, i.e. the

manufacturer of the equipment, or his authorized representative, or an equipment supplier to the

European market.

carrier-on state (allocated a channel): An MES is in this state when it is transmitting a signal in a

continuous or non-continuous mode.

carrier-off state (idle mode): An MES is in this state when it is powered-on but not transmitting a signal,

i.e. not in carrier-on state.

conducted measurement: A measurement of emissions from an antenna port of the MES made by

direct wired connection to the port.

Equivalent Isotropically Radiated Power (EIRP): The product of transmitter power and maximum

antenna gain, equivalent to an isotropic source radiating uniformly in all directions.

handheld: Indicates a PE MES which is self-contained and is small enough and light enough to be carried

and used during a call with one hand.

host-connected: Indicates an MES for which connection to or integration with host equipment is

necessary to offer functionality.

host equipment: Is any equipment which has a complete user functionality when not connected to the

MES, and to which the MES provides additional functionality, and to which connection is necessary for the

MES to offer functionality.

Installable Equipment (IE), Internally Mounted Equipment (IME) and Externally Mounted Equipment

may consist of one or several interconnected modules. The IE is composed of modules intended to be

externally mounted as declared by the applicant, and defined as Externally Mounted Equipment (EME)

and the remaining modules(s) as Internally Mounted Equipment (IME).

Laboratory Test Equipment (LTE): A logical grouping that contains the standard test equipment

provided by a test laboratory.
MSS band: A continuous range of frequencies allocated by the ITU to the MSS.

messages may originate from Special Test Equipment (STE).

nominated bandwidth (B ): The B of the Mobile Earth Station (MES) radio frequency transmission is

n n

wide enough to encompass all spectral elements of the transmission which have a level greater than the

specified levels of unwanted emissions. The B is defined relative to the MES actual carrier frequency f .

n c

B is the width of the frequency interval (f -a, f +b), where a and b, which shall be specified by the

n c c
applicant, may vary with f .
The frequency interval (f -a, f +b) shall not encompass more than either:
c c
