Electromagnetic compatibility and Radio spectrum Matters (ERM); Harmonized EN for CDMA spread spectrum mobile stations operating in the 450 MHz cellular band (CDMA 450) and 410, 450 and 870 MHz PAMR bands (CDMA-PAMR) covering essential requirements of article 3.2 of the R&TTE Directive
|Publication Date:||1 May 2006|
The present document applies to cdma450 mobile stations using CDMA 1x spread spectrum technology, i.e. Band Class 5 equipment or Band Class 11 equipment as defined in TIA-1030 , capable of operating in all or any part of the frequency bands defined in footnote EU34 from the European Common Allocation table ERC Report 25 :
"Parts of the bands 450 to 457,5 / 460 to 467,5 MHz may also be used for existing and evolving public cellular networks on a National basis".
The present document also applies to CDMA-PAMR mobile stations covering, in accordance with ECC Decision ECC DEC(04)06 , the frequency bands:
- Band Class 11: 410 MHz to 430 MHz and 450 MHz to 470 MHz with 10 MHz duplex spacing between the transmit frequencies of mobile stations (410 MHz to 420 MHz and 450 MHz to 460 MHz) and the transmit frequencies of base stations (420 MHz to 430 MHz and 460 MHz to 470 MHz).
- Band Class 12: 870 MHz to 876 MHz paired with 915 MHz to 921 MHz with 45 MHz duplex spacing between the transmit frequencies of mobile stations (870 MHz to 876 MHz) and the transmit frequencies of base stations (915 MHz to 921 MHz).
The present document is intended to cover the provisions of Directive 1999/5/EC  (R&TTE Directive) article 3.2, which states that "... radio equipment shall be so constructed that it effectively uses the spectrum allocated to terrestrial/space radio communications and orbital resources so as to avoid harmful interference".
In addition to the present document, other ENs that specify technical requirements in respect of essential requirements under other parts of article 3 of the R&TTE Directive  will apply to equipment within the scope of the present document.
