ETSI - EN 302 574-1
Satellite Earth Stations and Systems (SES); Harmonised Standard for Satellite Earth Stations (MES) for MSS operating in the 2 GHz frequency band; Part 1: Complementary Ground Component (CGC) for wideband systems covering the essential requirements of article 3.2 of the Directive 2014/53/EU
|Publication Date:||1 March 2016|
The present document applies to Complementary Ground Components (CGC) operating as part of a satellite network.
The present document covers two types of CGC:
• Conventional CGC:
- Clauses 4 and 5 according to ETSI EN 301 908-18  for W_CDMA
- Clauses 8 and 9 according to ETSI EN 301 908-14  for E-UTRA
• Aeronautical CGC These Complementary Ground Components (CGC) transmit only to the User Equipment/ Aeronautical Terminal or transmit and receive to/from the User Equipment/ Aeronautical Terminal in the frequency bands allocated to the Mobile Satellite Service (MSS) on a primary basis as defined in table 1.
NOTE 1: The CGC may include various types of interfaces, to terrestrial and/or satellite networks, but their specifications are out of the scope of the present document.
The present document applies to Complementary Ground Component (CGC) radio equipment type deployed in Mobile Satellite Services systems which have the following characteristics:
• These CGCs may have both transmit and receive capabilities and are part of a hybrid Satellite/terrestria
• These CGCs operate with an assigned channel signal bandwidth (CBw) of 1 MHz or greater.
• The conventional CGCs may be local coverage, medium coverage or wide coverage ground components.
• The aeronautical CGCs may transmit/receive toward/from terminal mounted on aircraft (Aeronautical Terminal).
• These CGCs may be an element in a multi-mode base station. It may consist of a number of modules with associated connections, or may be a self-contained single unit.
If the CGC is an element in a multi-mode base station, unless otherwise stated in the present document, its requirements apply only to the CGC element of the terminal operating in the Mobile Satellite Service (MSS) frequency bands given in table 1.
The present document applies to the following terminal equipment types:
1) Complementary Ground Components for Wideband Satellite Systems.
The present document only applies to the radio interface between the conventional CGC and the User Equipment or between aeronautical CGC and Aeronautical Terminal.
The present document is intended to cover the provisions of Directive 2014/53/EU  (RE Directive) article 3.2 which states, which states that "Radio equipment shall be so constructed that it both effectively uses and supports the efficient use of radio spectrum in order to avoid harmful interference".
NOTE 2: In addition to the unwanted emission limits defined in clauses 4.2.2 and 5.2.2 of the present document, additional operational constraints may be required to prevent harmful interference into services operating in the neighbouring bands outside the operational band defined in table 1.
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 Directive 2014/53/EU  may apply to equipment within the scope of the present document.
