P25 Phase 2 TDMA MAC Layer Document Approved for TIA Publication
Monday, November 29, 2010
Completes the suite of core definition documents, directly enabling development of interoperable P25 Phase 2 TDMA equipment.
During the TIA/TR8/P25 Meetings that took place in Charleston, SC during the week of October 18th , the TR8.12 (2-slot TDMA) Technical Committee approved the P25 Phase 2 TDMA MAC Layer Document (TIA-102.BBAC) for TIA publication.
This Phase 2 TDMA MAC document and the earlier Phase 2 TDMA Physical Layer document (TIA-102.BBAB published by TIA in July 2009) represent the core definition standards documents for interoperable P25 Phase 2 TDMA equipment.
The completion of these standards (TDMA Physical Layer TIA-102.BBAB and TDMA MAC Layer TIA-102.BBAC) will enable manufacturers to develop P25 Phase 2 TDMA Trunked equipment. This is another major milestone towards availability of P25 Phase 2 TDMA equipment.
