Review of Australian Standards. To keep abreast of progress in industry, Australi an Standards are subject to periodic review and are kept up to date by the issue of amendments or new editi ons as necessary. It is important therefore that Standards users ensure that they are in possession of the latest editi on, and any amendments thereto. Full detail s of all Australi an Standards and related publications wil l be found in the Standards Australia Catalogue of Publications; this information is supplemented each month by the magazine The Australi an Standard, which subscribing members receive, and which gives details of new publications, new editi ons and amendments, and of withdrawn Standards. Suggesti ons for improvements to Australi an Standards, addressed to the head off ice of Standards Australia, are welcomed. Noti fi cati on of any inaccuracy or ambiguity found in an Australi an Standard should be made without delay in order that the matter may be investigated and appropriate action taken.

PREFACE
This Standard was prepared by the Joint Standards Australia / Standards New Zealand Committee RC/2 on Radiocommunications Equipment Satellite and Telecommunications Networks, to supersede AS 4080 1992. This Standard is the result of a consensus among Australian and New Zealand representatives on the Joint Committee to produce it as an Australian Standard. It is based on material supplied by OPTUS, owners and operators of the mobilesat system and includes proprietary protocols whose intellectual property is owned by OPTUS, who have advised that all manufacturers will be able to obtain licences for the intellectual property on an unlimited, non-exclusive and equitable basis. The trademark mobilesat is a registered OPTUS trademark.

It is intended to assist designers and manufacturers of appropriate terminal equipment as well as users of mobilesat. The Standard was reviewed to incorporate changes intended to clarify and expand the detail of requirements. The changes are contained throughout the document and include the addition of specifications for an additional class of mobilesat terminal, with its associated parameters, specification for transmitted data rate accuracy and transmitting, receiving and environmental testing instructions. The topics containing changes include antenna tracking requirements, OBTDM carrier acquisition requirements, power output monitoring, definitions for class and DAMA as well as Figures 6 and 8. Appendix A, including the figures, has also changed. Clarification has been made to RF radiation requirements, person-to-machine interface requirements and Table 4. This Standard applies to mobile satellite earth terminals for accessing mobilesat which provides a range of circuit-switched voice, data, facsimile and messaging services, using the B Series OPTUS satellites. The satellite transponders will enable a large number of mobilesat terminals transmitting and receiving at L-band to communicate via satellite with fixed earth stations transmitting and receiving at Ku-band. AUSTEL Technical Standard TS 022 defines the mobilesat terminal compatibility requirements for access to the mobilesat system and through it where appropriate, to a carrier network.

FOREWORD The mobilesat system has been designed and developed in Australia. It is a consumer satellite communications system facilitating voice communication and exchange of data, facsimile and messages using mobile terminals anywhere in Australia and neighbouring waters, via satellite. It is managed and controlled from a network management station which is located in Sydney with a fully redundant backup capability located in Perth. The mobilesat system caters for both transportable/fixed and mobile applications. The mobilesat system connects into a public telecommunications network via gateway stations which are under the control of the network management station, and connects into the network using the high functionality of an ISDN primary rate access interface. A major objective of this system is to offer mobile telephone communications to potential users outside the reach of existing wire or cellular telephone systems. The mobilesat terminals are similar in concept to car cellular telephones, comprising a handset, electronics package and antenna. Antenna performance is crucial to satisfactory performance of the system and compact, practical designs are obviously highly desirable. Enhanced applications such as data exchange and facsimile are available, depending on the facilities designed into user interfaces. The capabilities offered are shown in Figure 1. The system supports approximately 1000 channels and approximately 50 000 users.

STANDARDS AUSTRALIA Australian Standard User terminals for accessing the mobilesat satellite communications system

1 SCOPE This Standard details definitions, minimum physical layer performance requirements, environment and testing requirements of mobile terminals (MTs) for access to the mobilesat satellite communications system.
This is a free 7 page sample. Access the full version at http://infostore.saiglobal.com.

The specifications cover signalling and telephony requirements to ensure access to mobilesat and to ensure that MTs will achieve intended service quality, will interwork with the network management station (NMS), base stations (BSs), gateway stations (GSs) and that they will not, in any circumstances (including failure to operate), endanger system integrity. This Standard does not cover the mechanical specifications for terminal equipment, the numbering scheme, or user interfaces for enhanced facilities. 2 APPLICATION This Standard is intended for use by equipment designers, manufacturers, suppliers and maintainers, to ensure correct operation of MTs and their compatibility with mobilesat. It should be read in conjunction with AUSTEL Technical Standard TS 022. 3 3.1 AS 2772 AS 3260 REFERENCED AND RELATED DOCUMENTS Referenced documents The following documents are referred to in this Standard:
