The present document defines the architecture applicable to location systems. This is a "functional" architecture, meaning that the system is defined in terms of discrete functional elements connected to other internal or external functional elements via associated "logical" interfaces. These functional elements and interfaces are derived from service requirements.
The functional architecture is not necessarily related to the "physical architecture" (i.e. the relationship between equipment which may implement all or some of these functions, and the physical interfaces between them).
The present document can be considered as the Stage 2 functional specification according to the ITU/3GPP approach [i.4].
ETSI TS 103 246 part 1 , part 3 [i.6], part 4 [i.2] and part 5 [i.3] address integrated GNSS Based Location Systems (GBLS) that combine Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS), with other navigation technologies, as well as with telecommunication networks in order to deliver location-based services to users. As a consequence the present document is not applicable to GNSS only receivers.
ETSI TS 103 246 part 1 , part 3 [i.6], part 4 [i.2] and part 5 [i.3] propose a list of functional and performance requirements and related test procedures. For each performance requirement, different classes are defined allowing the benchmark of different GNSS Based Location Systems (GBLS) addressing the same applications.
