Summary of RSS-132 Cellular Telephone Systems Testing

This Radio Standards Specification (RSS) evaluates transmitters and receivers for cellular telephone systems. The RSS standard only determines the requirements of systems in the bands 824 – 849 and 869 – 894 MHz.

Equipment certified under this wireless method is classified as Category I equipment. A technical acceptance certificate or certificate issued by a Certification Body (CB) is required. 

Scope of Intentional Radiator RSS Testing

This radio standard specification is used in conjunction with the RSS-Gen for general specifications and information relevant to the equipment in this standard.

Mobile Equipment Identifier (MEID) and International Mobile Equipment Identity (IMEI) must comply with the following requirements:

  • Each mobile transmitter in service must have a unique MEID or IMEI.
  • The MEID and IMEI components must be permanently attached to a main circuit board of the mobile transmitter.
  • The MEID and IMEI must be factory set and not alterable, transferable, removable, or otherwise able to be manipulated.

Equipment certified under this standard uses digital modulation. 

The frequency bands 824-849 MHz and 869-894 MHz are divided into sub-bands. These sub-bands are:

  • 824-835 MHz, 835-845 MHz, 845-846.5 MHz, and 846.5-849 MHz for mobile transmit.
  • 869-880 MHz, 880-890 MHz, 890-891.5 MHz, and 891.5-894 MHz for base transmit.

The transmitter output power is measured in terms of average power. The equivalent isotropically radiated power (e.i.r.p.) for mobile equipment can not exceed 11.5 watts. The peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) of the transmitter can not exceed 13 dB for more than 0.1% of the time using a signal corresponding to the highest PAPR during periods of continuous transmission.
