ETSI - TS 101 503
Digital Cellular Telecommunications System (Phase 2+); Mobile Radio Interface Layer 3 Specification; Radio Resource Control Protocol
|Publication Date:||1 January 2001|
The present document specifies the procedures used at the radio interface (Reference Point Um, see 3GPP TS 04.02) for Radio Resource (RR) management.
Notation "Reserved clause number" is used to indicate which clauses of the specification were moved from this part of the standard to the other part when this standard was split between RAN and CN parts.
When the notations for "further study" or "FS" or "FFS" are present in this specification they mean that the indicated text is not a normative portion of this standard.
These procedures are defined in terms of messages exchanged over the control channels of the radio interface. The control channels are described in 3GPP TS 04.03.
The structured functions and procedures of this protocol and the relationship with other layers and entities are described in general terms in 3GPP TS 24.007.
Scope of the Technical Specification
The procedures currently described in the present document are for radio resource management for circuit-switched and GPRS services.
3GPP TS 24.010 contains functional procedures for support of supplementary services.
3GPP TS 04.11 contains functional procedures for support of point-to-point short message services.
3GPP TS 04.12 contains functional description of short message - cell broadcast.
3GPP TS 04.60 contains procedures for radio link control and medium access control (RLC/MAC) of packet data physical channels.
3GPP TS 24.071 contains functional descriptions and procedures for support of location services.
3GPP TS 24.008 contains the procedures for CN protocols.
NOTE: "layer 3" includes the functions and protocols described in this Technical Specification. The terms "data link layer" and "layer 2" are used interchangeably to refer to the layer immediately below layer 3
