This Technical Specification (TS) describes the Service Principles for PLMNs specified by 3GPP. Principles and requirements for interworking with WLAN are covered in TS 22.234 .
3GPP specifications provide integrated personal communications services. The system will support different applications ranging from narrow-band to wide-band communications capability with integrated personal and terminal mobility to meet the user and service requirements of the 21st century.
3GPP specifications allow the realisation of a new generation of mobile communications technology for a world in which personal communications services should allow person-to-person calling, independent of location, the terminal used, the means of transmission (wired or wireless) and the choice of technology. Personal communication services should be based on a combination of fixed and wireless/mobile services to form a seamless end-to-end service for the user.
3GPP specifications should be in compliance with the following objectives:
a) to provide a single integrated system in which the user can access services in an easy to use and uniform way in all environments;
b) to allow differentiation between service offerings of various serving networks and home environments;
c) to provide a wide range of telecommunications services including those provided by fixed networks and requiring user bit rates of up to 100 Mbit/s as well as services special to mobile communications. These services should be supported in residential, public and office environments and in areas of diverse population densities. These services are provided with a quality comparable with that provided by fixed networks such as ISDN and fixed broadband Internet access;
d) to provide services via hand held, portable, vehicular mounted, movable and fixed terminals (including those which normally operate connected to fixed networks), in all environments (in different service environments - residential, private domestic and different radio environments) provided that the terminal has the necessary capabilities;
e) to provide support of roaming users by enabling users to access services provided by their home environment in the same way even when roaming.
f) to provide audio, data, video and particularly multimedia services;
g) to provide for the flexible introduction of telecommunication services;
h) to provide within the residential environment the capability to enable a pedestrian user to access all services normally provided by fixed networks;
i) to provide within the office environment the capability to enable a pedestrian user to access all services normally provided by PBXs and LANs;
j) to provide a substitute for fixed networks in areas of diverse population densities, under conditions approved by the appropriate national or regional regulatory authority.
k) to provide support for interfaces which allow the use of terminals normally connected to fixed networks.
