Description / Abstract:

Purpose and Scope

This standard specifies a Radio Link Protocol (RLP2) that layer-3 functions may use to isochronously transport data across a TDMA radio interface. The protocol maintains bit-count integrity by delivering cumulative nibble counts to layer 3. It requires an underlying half-rate, full-rate, double-rate, or triple-rate digital traffic channel as specified in TIA-136-131, 132, and 133 [5].

To aid the reader, §§ 2 and 3 contain descriptive information: § 2 provides an overview; § 3 describes the protocol's structure. §§ 4 and 5 contain requirements: § 4 specifies RLP2 signals; § 5 specifies pro cesses. References appear in § 6. Finally, Annex A lists and defines acronyms.

Readers will find the following documents helpful in understanding this standard: X.200 [3] and Z.100 [4].

Similar to X.200, this standard uses reference models to organize concepts and requirements into a logical structure. These reference models are not meant to unnecessarily constrain implementations — any RLP2 implementation that, as a whole, behaves the same as the RLP2 specified in this standard, by definition, complies with this standard.

If the requirements of this standard conflict with the requirements of referenced standards, this standard shall govern.
