May 13, 2004 - Document details methods of measurement and minimum performance requirements for the stations.

The Telecommunications Industry Association has published a new standard that details definitions for code division multiple access base stations.

The standard is Base Station Performance Standard for Dual Mode Spread Spectrum Systems, Addendum 1, TIA-97-E-1. The standard is a supplement to TIA/EIA-97-E.

This document details definitions, methods of measurement and minimum performance requirements for the base stations. It shares the purpose of 3GPP2 C.S0002-B, Physical Layer Standard for cdma2000 Spread Spectrum Systems, 2002 by ensuring that a mobile station can obtain service in any system that meets the compatibility requirements of that document. Compatibility, as used in connection with this standard and 3GPP2 C.S0002-B, is understood to mean that any mobile station is able to place and receive calls in any system. Conversely, all systems are able to place and receive calls with any mobile station. Test methods are recommended in this document; however, methods other than those suggested may suffice for the same purpose.

TIA-97-E-1 was created by TIA TR-45.5 Subcommittee on Spread Spectrum Digital Technology and approved in March.

The TIA is based in Arlington, VA. For more information visit www.tiaonline.org.
