Add the following four clauses (Scope, Normative references, Definitions, Abbreviations) at the start of the

text:
Scope

This European Telecommunication Standard (ETS) describes in general terms the link access procedure

of the Digital Subscriber Signalling System No. one (DSS1) protocol when used in the pan-European

Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN) as provided by European public telecommunications

operators, or in a Private Telecommunication Network (PTN), at the T reference point or the S reference

point or the coincident S and T reference point (as defined in ITU-T Recommendation I.411 [15]).

Annex ZA of this ETS describes in general terms the link access procedure for use in a symmetrical

application between two Private Telecommunication Network eXchanges (PTNXs) at the Q reference

point (see ETS 300 475-1 [14]).

Conformance to this ETS is met by conforming to the specific protocol standards for individual

applications. Therefore, no separate method of testing is provided for this ETS.

The field of application of this ETS is determined by specific protocol standards for individual applications.

Normative references

For the purposes of this ETS, the following definitions apply, together with those given in the referenced

publications:

Assignment Source Point (ASP): Layer management entity at the network side performing TEI

management.

automatic TEI assignment: Layer management procedure between user side and network side (ASP)

which associates within one interface a unique numeric value for a layer 2 terminal identity (TEI value) to a

variable called TEI of a specific terminal equipment. The TEI, which is part of the DLCI, is selected by the

ASP.

more than two connection-endpoints (see [X.200 § 5.3.1.4] multi-endpoint-connection).

confirm (primitive): [X.210 § 3.2.7] A primitive issued by a service-provider to complete, at a particular

service-access-point, some procedure previously invoked by a request at that service-access-point.

confirmed service: [X.210 § 3.2.12] A service which results in an explicit confirmation from the service-

provider. There is not necessarily any relationship to a response from the peer service user.

D-channel: [I.412] The D-channel represents the portion of the information-carrying capacity of the ISDN

user-network interface primarily intended to carry access signalling information. In addition, a D-channel

may also be used to carry other information such as packet-switched data, teleaction information, etc.

data link connection: [X.212] An association established by a data link layer between two or more data

link service users for the transfer of data, which provides explicit identification of a set of data link data

transmissions and agreement concerning the data link transmission services to be provided for the set.

NOTE: This definition clarifies the definition given in CCITT Recommendation X.200.

Data Link Connection Identifier (DLCI): An address conveyed in a PDU which indicates the source and

destination of an intended instance of communication at the data link layer.
function: [X.200 § 5.2.1.7] A part of the activity of entities.

indication (primitive): [X.210 § 3.2.5] A primitive issued by a service-provider either:

a) to invoke some procedure; or

b) to indicate that a procedure has been invoked by the service-user at the peer service-access-

point.

and data link layer entity at the user side which associates within one interface a numeric value for a

layer 2 terminal identity (TEI value) to a variable called TEI of a specific terminal equipment. The TEI,

which is part of the DLCI, is selected by the user.

persistent deactivation: The term "persistent layer 1 deactivation" defines condition which shall be

satisfied before the data link layer assumes layer 1 deactivation and takes the actions according to the

protocol specification. Persistency is achieved if:

a) the deactivation is an intended action within layer 1 caused by the functional block

responsible for deactivation of the layer 1; or

b) layer 1 lost connectivity during a time interval, the value of which is outside the scope of this

by division by the generator polynomial (as described above) on the address, control

and information fields; the ones complement of the resulting remainder is transmitted

as the 16-bit FCS.

with those sent across other SAPs for the physical resources available for information transfer. Within the

data link layer, SDUs associated with SAPI = 0 shall have a high priority, and SDUs associated with other

SAPIs shall have a low priority. This priority shall be respected within the data link layer and shall be

indicated to the physical layer by means of the priority indicator.

The priority indicator shall take the value "1" for high priority and the value "2" for low priority.

NOTE: Within a user side in a point-to-multipoint configuration, this priority indicator is used at

the physical layer to the influence the contention resolution between different terminals.

In all other cases, the effect is local to any queues that may be provided.

Replace the second paragraph:

In the scope of this ETS the interactions between layer 3 and the data link layer, and those between the

data link layer and the physical layer are specified.

Add a new subclause 4.2.3:
4.2.3 Data link layer - physical layer interactions

The interactions across the boundary between the data link layer and the physical layer allow:

a) The data link layer at either side of the user-network interface to invoke the activation of the

physical layer connection making use of the PH-ACTIVATE.request primitive. At the user

side of the basic access, no PH-ACTIVATE.request primitive shall be issued, if the terminal is

not in the connected status as indicated by the MPH-INFORMATION.indication primitive with

the parameter "disconnected". In all other cases, the status is permanently connected. The

successful activation is confirmed by the PH-ACTIVATE.indication primitive. An unsuccessful

activation is indicated by the PH-DEACTIVATE.indication primitive.

b) The physical layer to indicate to the data link layer that the physical layer connection has

been activated, by means of the PH-ACTIVATE.indication primitive.

c) The physical layer to indicate to the data link layer that the physical layer connection has

been deactivated, by means of the PH-DEACTIVATE.indication primitive.

d) The data link layer at either side of the user-network interface to request the physical layer in

the activated state the transmission of the SDU passed from the data link layer to the

physical layer by means of a PH-DATA.request primitive. The PH-DATA.request primitive

includes a priority indicator with the values "high" or "low", representing two priority classes.

The two priority classes apply to the physical layer and allow the data link layer to control the

priority for the processing of SDUs within the physical layer. The priority mechanism makes

provision that no low priority SDU is transmitted on the D-channel as long as there are high

priority SDUs pending transmission within the physical layer.

e) The physical layer in the activated state to deliver to the data link layer a received SDU This

SDU is passed from the physical layer to the data link layer by means of a PH-
DATA.indication primitive.

The interactions described in a), b) and c) above are related to physical connection status control while d)

and e) refer to the information transfer on an activated physical connection i.e. on a activated D-channel.

The data link layer shall make provision that activation of the physical layer connection is invoked making

use of the PH-ACTIVATE.request primitive when a data link layer connection is to be establish

The priority mechanism makesprovision that no low priority SDU is transmitted on the D-channel as long as there are highpriority SDUs pending transmission within the physical layer.e)The physical layer in the activated state to deliver to the data link layer a received SDU ThisSDU is passed from the physical layer to the data link layer by means of a PH-DATA.indication primitive.The interactions described in a), b) and c) above are related to physical connection status control while d)and e) refer to the information transfer on an activated physical connection i.e. on a activated D-channel.The data link layer shall make provision that activation of the physical layer connection is invoked makinguse of the PH-ACTIVATE.request primitive when a data link layer connection is to be established and thephysical layer is in the deactivated state, otherwise no PH-ACTIVATE.request primitive shall be issued.The data link layer shall not issue a PH-DATA.request primitive, if the physical layer connection is not inthe activated state.Page 22, clause 5, noteThe note contains a mandatory requirement of this ETS. As a consequence, replace the note by:A FRMR-response shall not be generated by a data link layer entity; however, on receipt of this frameactions according to subclause 5.8.6 of this ETS shall be taken.Page 22, table 7/Q.921, noteDelete the note.Page 22, subclause 5.2.1Replace the complete text of subclause 5.2.1 by:The procedures which apply to the transmission of information in unacknowledged operation are definedin subclauses 5.2.2 and 5.2.3.No data link layer error recovery procedures are defined for unacknowledged operation.If an implementation conforming to this ETS is used only in conjunction with a defined set of applicationswhich do not use the unacknowledged information transfer service, and an open interface is not providedto user applications, e.g. for later inclusion of a new application, then, as an implementation option:a)the layer 2 protocol entity supporting any particular user application which does not useunacknowledged information transfer service, does not need to implement the generation ofthe UI frame, and may treat received UI frames as frames associated with an application notimplemented according to subclause 3.6.1;b)the layer 2 protocol entity supporting layer 2 management (broadcast data link procedures)does not need to be implemented, if no peer-to-peer layer management is provided (seeannex A).PSIST ETS 300 402-2:1996
