The present document specifies technical characteristics and methods of measurements for equipment implementing the Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications (DECT) common interface, as specified in by the multi-part technical specification ETSI EN 300 175 including the variants DECT Evolution and DECT ULE (see ETSI EN 300 175-1 for an overview).
The present document applies to the following equipment types:
a) Fixed Part (FP);
b) Portable Part (PP);
c) Cordless Terminal Adapter (CTA);
d) Wireless Relay Station (WRS) (FP and PP combined);
e) Hybrid Part (HyP) (a PP with capability to act as a FP to provide PP to PP communication).
These radio equipment types are capable of operating in all or any part of the frequency bands given in table 1.
Table 1: Radiocommunications service frequency bands
Radiocommunications service frequency bands
Transmit 1 880 MHz to 1 900 MHz
Receive 1 880 MHz to 1 900 MHz
The DECT service frequency band for transmitting and receiving for all elements is 1 880 MHz to 1 900 MHz.
Details of the DECT Common Interface may be found in ETSI EN 300 175-1 , ETSI EN 300 175 parts 2 to 3, ETSI EN 300 175-4, ETSI EN 300 175 parts 5 to 6, and ETSI EN 300 175 parts 7 to 8. Further details of the DECT system may be found in the ETSI TR 101 178.
DECT ULE implements, in addition to the DECT Common Interface, the multi-part ETSI TS 102 939 (see ETSI TS 102 939-1 and ETSI TS 102 939-2).
The present document contains 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 essential requirements of article 3.2 of Directive 2014/53/EU is given in annex A.
