Description

he PCCCH are optional in GPRS and currently not implemented by OsmoPCU. This means that we cannot use 11bit RACH bursts, which would be useful for later EGPRS support.

Without PCCCH, there is no PRACH, and without PRACH, there is no multi-slot EGPRS TBF assignment in single-phase access.

History

#1 Updated by laforge over 3 years ago

  • Status changed from New to Rejected

PCCCH/PBCCH was removed from more recent versions of the 3GPP specs, so we can no longer assume all phones will support it :(

#2 Updated by laforge 5 months ago

3GPP TS 44.060 already in Release 10:

1.6 Restrictions

Independently of what is stated elsewhere in this and other 3GPP specifications, mobile
station support for PBCCH, PCCCH and PACKET PSI STATUS is optional for A/Gb-mode of operation.
The network shall never enable PBCCHand PCCCH.
