PARAMETER ORIGIN - ACTION ON PARAMETER The BSC takes this information in order to have the MS power capability for the power control and algorithm information, the MS frequency capability and the MS ciphering capability. Default values are used for 'revision level', 'RF Power Capability' and MS cipher capability if the BSC can not decode these fields (see reference [7]). Additional mobile info can be obtained by invoking the classmark enquiry procedure.
