The present document specifies technical characteristics and methods of measurements for Point-to-point (P-P) Digital Fixed Radio Systems (DFRS) operating in frequency bands allocated to Fixed Service (FS) from 1 GHz to 86 GHz, corresponding to the appropriate frequency bands from 1,4 GHz to 86 GHz as described in annex B to annex J.
Systems in the scope of the present document are generally intended to operate in full Frequency Division Duplex (FDD) and cover also unidirectional applications. Time Division Duplex (TDD) applications, when possibly applicable in a specific band, are explicitly mentioned as appropriate in annex B through annex J.
Systems may be composed by equipment without antennas (see informative annex Q for background) or equipment including integral or dedicated antenna, both cases are in the scope of the present document.
The present document covers requirements to demonstrate that radio equipment both effectively uses and supports the efficient use of radio spectrum in order to avoid harmful interference
NOTE: The relationship between the present document and the essential requirements of article 3.2 of Directive 2014/53/EU is given in annex A.
