RSS-133 and SRSP-510 Tackle Bands

Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada are seeking out comments on two co-current technical documents covering the operating bands 1850-1915 MHz and 1930-1995 MHz. RSS-133, issue 7, “Personal Communications Service Equipment Operating in the Bands 1850-1915 MHz and 1930-1995 MHz”, sets out the requirements for certification for Personal Communications Service (PCS) equipment operating in the bands 1850-1915 MHz and 1930-1995 MHz. SRSP-510, issue 6, “Technical Requirements for Personal Communications Services in the Bands 1850-1915 MHz and 1930-1995 MHz”, sets out the minimum technical requirements for the efficient use of the bands 1850-1915 MHz and 1939-1995 MHz by personal.

Here are some of the updates made to RSS-133. Maximum transmitter power requirements or fixed stations, base stations, and subscriber equipment has been added. Both total radiated power and unwanted emissions requirements have been been established for active antenna system (AAS) equipment. Removed the section on receiver spurious emissions because the requirement is already established in RSS-Gen. Modernized the current Radio Standards Specification structure to reflect the other standards. Requirements for mobile equipment identifier (MEID) and international mobile equipment identity (IMEI) has been removed since it’s no longer required. Definitions were added to clarify terms and editorial changes were made when appropriate.

For SRSP-510, issue 6, the main change was the incorporated technical rules to facilitate the deployment of AAS. Many of the old requirements were deleted and updated to reflect the new needs. ISED is requesting comment no later than May 7, 2024 on both of these standards.
