Interoperability Specification (IOS) for cdma2000 Access Network Interfaces - Part 4 (A1, A1p, A2 and A5 Interfaces)
|Publication Date:||1 April 2014|
This standard provides the specification for the interface which coincides with the Reference Point "A" defined in the TR45 Network Reference Model shown in [I-4] and with Reference point 48 as defined in the Network Reference Model shown in . The scope of this standard includes the following topics:
- Descriptions of the specified functional capabilities that provide wireless telecommunications services across the A1 interface as defined in the TR45 Network Reference Model,
- Descriptions of the division of responsibility of the functions provided between the BS and the MSC, without prescribing specific implementations,
- Descriptions of the A1 interface standard that support DS-41  and cdma2000®1 systems,
- Descriptions of the specified functional capabilities that provide circuit-services across the packet transport based MSCe-BS (A1p) and MGW-BS (A2p) interfaces as defined in the Network Reference Model shown in . It should be noted that, for a given call, the transcoder may or may not be in the MGW or BS. This protocol definition is not limited by the location or existence of the transcoder in the bearer path,
- Descriptions of the division of responsibility of the functions provided between th1 e 2 BS and the MSCe and MGW without prescribing specific implementations.

The purpose of this document is to provide a standard for interfacing a MSC with one or more Base Stations (BSs). In addition, this standard provides for interfacing a Mobile Switching Center Emulation (MSCe) and a MGW to one or more BSs. This document defines the functional capabilities, including services and features, of the specified interface. These services and features are the defining characteristics that are the basis for the overall system standard.
