1 Scope

This European Telecommunication Standard (ETS) identifies the Mobile-services Switching

Centre/Interworking Functions (MSC/IWFs) and requirements to support interworking between:

a) PLMN and PSTN
b) PLMN and ISDN

It is not possible to treat ISDN and PSTN as one type of network, even when both ISDN and PSTN

subscribers are served by the same exchange because of the limitations of the PSTN subscribers access

i.e. analogue connection without D-channel signalling.

Within this ETS, the requirements for voice and non-voice (data) calls are considered separately.

handled as specified in table 6A and 6B of GSM 09.07.
3 Definitions and abbreviations

Use is made of the following terms within this ETS. These terms refer to information requirements

necessary to support interworking functions, some of these terms will be identifiable with their use in other

GSM specifications.

bearer capability information: Specific information defining the lower layer characteristics required

within the network.

low layer compatibility information: Information defining the lower layer characteristics of the terminal.

SIST ETS 300 976 E5:2003
Page 12
ETS 300 976 (GSM 09.07 version 5.6.1): July 1998

high layer compatibility information: Information defining the higher layer characteristics of the

terminal.

compatibility information: This term subsumes the entirety of Bearer Capability, Low Layer

Compatibility, High Layer Compatibility, Progress Indicator and Address Information conveyed out-of-band

prior to call establishment for the support of compatibility checking and terminal/function/service selection

at the ISDN-type user-network interface.

protocol identifier: Information defining the specific protocols utilized for the support of data transfer by a

terminal.

progress indicator: Information supplied to indicate to the terminal that network interworking has taken

place.

out-of-band parameter exchange: Information exchanged via an associated or non-associated

signalling link e.g. SS No 7.
PSTN: Subscriber to network interface supports only analogue terminals.

ISDN: Subscriber to network interface supports digital or analogue terminals, plus a standardized user to

network associated signalling system and a standardized internetwork signalling system.

autobauding type 1: This information element value may be contained in the setup or call confirm

messages from the MS in association with a non transparent data service. This implies that the MSC/IWF

may select any speed and modem type according to what it can negotiate with the remote modem on the

PSTN/ISDN. The maximum speed to be used by the MSC/IWF is the user speed indicated in the

setup/call confirm message.

multi self selecting speed modem: This term applies to V series modems capable of handling one or

more lower speeds as a fall back position. When such a modem is requested in the call setup or call

confirm message from the MS in association with a non transparent service, the MSC/IWF may select any

of the speeds supported according to the negotiation with the remote modem on the PSTN/ISDN. In this

instance the maximum starting negotiation speed to be used by the MSC/IWF is the one indicated by the

user speed in the setup/call confirm message.

unrestricted 64 kbit/s network: A digital network which has 64 kbit/s octet-structured Information

Transfer Capability (ITC) with no restrictions on the contents of each octet.

restricted 64 kbit/s network: CCITT I.464 defines '"restricted 64 kbit/s transfer capability" as "64 kbit/s

octet-structured capability with the exception that an all-zero octet is not permitted". In this specification,

the term "restricted 64 kbit/s network" refers not only to networks with the I.464 restriction but also to

those in which the 8th bit of each octet is unusable for data transmission.

directly connected restricted 64 kbit/s network: A restricted 64 kbit/s network which is connected

directly to the MSC/IWF.

indirectly connected restricted 64 kbit/s network: A restricted 64 kbit/s network which is connected to

the MSC/IWF via an unrestricted 64 kbit/s network.

In addition to the following, abbreviations used in this ETS are listed in GSM 01.04 [8].
