Comment sought on the revised Mobile Customer Equipment Standard
Communications Alliance invites public comment on the revised Requirements for connection to an air interface of a Telecommunications Network—Part 1: General Standard (DR AS/CA S042.1:2015).
The Requirements for connection to an air interface of a Telecommunications Network— Part 1: General Standard specifies the general requirements and test methods for Customer Equipment for use in connection with a Public Mobile Telecommunications Service (PMTS) or a Satellite Service in order to meet the regulatory arrangements for such equipment in Australia.
The revised draft Standard addresses the user indicator requirements for E-UTRA Customer Equipment using Circuit-Switched Fallback (CSFB) when making or receiving a voice call under certain conditions. E-UTRA Customer Equipment is also known as LTE (or more generically 4G) Customer Equipment. The ETSI references in the draft Standard have also been updated to the Release 8 version of the core 3GPP specifications as E-UTRA technology was introduced in this release.
The draft Standard can be downloaded from the Drafts for Public Comment page along with further information on how to submit comments. Information on the Working Committee which revised the Standard, including the Terms of Reference, can be found here.
The public comment period for the draft Standard closes at 5 p.m. on 19 June 2015.
