ETSI - EN 301 511
Global System for Mobile communications (GSM); Harmonised EN for mobile stations in the GSM 900 and GSM 1800 bands covering essential requirements under article 3.2 of the R&TTE directive (1999/5/EC)
|Publication Date:||1 June 2015|
The present document applies to the following radio telecommunications terminal equipment types:
- GSM mobile station.
This radio equipment type is for operation within the Digital cellular telecommunications system in the GSM 900 and/or GSM 1800 frequency bands as shown in table 1, with a channel separation of 200 kHz, utilizing constant envelope modulation and carrying traffic channels according to the Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) principle.
The present document is intended to cover the provisions of Directive 1999/5/EC (R&TTE Directive) [i.6] 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".
The present document covers the general access requirements for terminal equipment up to and including 3GPP Rel-12. The general access requirements, applied to the terminal equipment, are for one release only. The present document does not cover the GPRS Class A mobiles and the ECSD mobiles.
For each test purpose and its corresponding conformance requirement, a reference is given to the test method in ETSI TS 151 010-1 . The requirements apply at the air interface, which may be stimulated to perform the tests by additional equipment if necessary.
The measurement uncertainty is described in ETSI TS 151 010-1 , Annex 5.
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 [i.6] will apply to equipment within the scope of the present document.
NOTE 1: A list of such ENs is included on the web site
ETSI TS 151 010-1  constitutes the conformance test suite for GSM. The verification of the conformance requirements in the present document is based on the tests described in this reference. The set of requirements in ETSI TS 151 010-1  and the set of requirements in the present document need not be identical.
Some requirements only apply to specific types of mobile station (e.g. data tests only apply to mobile stations with a data facility, tests that only apply to GSM 900 or only to GSM 1800 or to both). The present document indicates the specific test which should be carried out for each mobile station type.
An active accessory is covered by the present document if it modifies the terminal performance in an aspect which affects conformance to essential requirements.
NOTE 2: Only active devices are subject to the present document. Accessories may be tested with specific terminals, and either approved for use with those terminals only, or may possibly be approved for use with a wider range of terminals, depending on the nature and effect of the accessory.
