Issues in PCS interoperability and InternetworkingThis paper is an expansion of an earlier paper on Satellite/Terrestrial PCS which addressed issues for interoperability that included Networks, Services, Voice Coders and Mobility/Security. This paper focuses on the narrower topic of Network Reference Models and associated interfaces and protocols. The network reference models are addressed from the perspective of the User, the Cellular Carrier, the PSN Carrier, and the Radio Vendor. Each perspective is presented in the way these systems have evolved. The TIA TR46/GSM reference model will be reviewed. Variations in the use of this model that are prevalent in the industry will be discussed. These are the North American Cellular networks, the GSM networks, and the North American Carriers/Bellcore perspective. The paper concludes with the presentation of issues that develop from looking at merging satellite service into a world of many different networks.
