All interested parties vote. Reviewed every 5 years. Proposal submitted to P25 Steering Committee Working Document on proposal developed in APCO P25 Interface Committee or Task Group P25 Steering Committee Votes to move Working Document Forward to TIA (TR-8) P25 Steering Committee accepts, rejects, or requests modifications to proposal User Needs assists with requirements clarifications Process is Iterative Input Output TIA Standard TIA approved. All interested parties vote. Reviewed every 5 years. TR8 Subcommittee TIA Standards can be upgraded to ANSI Standards via ANSI/TIA processes
Copyright Project 25 Technology Interest Group Slide 6 Project 25 Document Designation All Project 25 documents will carry a designation of TSB102XYYZ or TIA102XYYZ Some documents are a TSB (Telecommunications System Bulletin) Others are TIA (Telecommunications Industry Association) Standards The four alpha characters following the 102 are designated: By the left most alpha character (X) A Services Conventional, Trunked, Encrypted B Systems Interface Standards C Equipment Measurements and Specifications The next 2 alpha characters (YY) designate a particular feature within a category The last alpha character (Z) designates a particular standards document dealing with a feature i.e. TIA102BACA ISSI Messages and Procedures
Copyright Project 25 Technology Interest Group Slide 7 Benefits of Project 25 Standard Project 25 Standard documents define seven specific interfaces, or connection points, of digital wireless systems. Enables competing manufacturers to build products that interoperate across those interfaces Enables agencies to procure interoperable Project 25 products, sub-systems, and systems from competing manufacturers.

Copyright Project 25 Technology Interest Group Slide 9 Project 25 RF SubSystem The RFSS or Radio Frequency Sub-System is the heart of the system provides for processing all calls group, individual, PSTN sets up command and control messages routes voice and data packets manages subscriber (group) databases six of the seven standard interfaces connect to the RFSS
Copyright Project 25 Technology Interest Group Slide 10 Project 25 Interfaces Common Air Interface - CAI - (U m ) –describes the wireless/over-the-air radio access among subscriber radios and between the subscriber radios and the fixed or base station radios Inter RF Subsystem Interface – ISSI - (G) – describes the interface between systems, permitting users in one system to communicate with users in a different system for expanded coverage. Fixed Station Interface – FSI - (E f ) –describes the conventional signaling and messages between the radio system and the fixed station by defining the voice and data packets and the command and control messages. Console Subsystem Interface – CSSI - (E c ) –describes the signaling and messages between the radio system and the console, the position that a dispatcher or a supervisor would occupy to provide commands and support to the personnel in the field. The trunked console interface is part of the ISSI interface.
Copyright Project 25 Technology Interest Group Slide 11 Project 25 Interfaces (cont.) Subscriber data peripheral interface (A) –describes the data interface between the Project 25 radio and a data device Data network interface (E d ) – describes the data interface between the Project 25 radio system and the external data network including connections to computers, data networks, external data sources, etc. Telephone interconnect interface (E t ) – describes the interface between the subscriber and the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) to allow field personnel to make telephone calls. The use of this interface is dwindling due to (1) the availability of commercial cellular networks, and (2) the potential loading impact to the radio system if over used. (Future work) Network Management Interface (E n ) – describes the interface to the radio system that allows administrators to control and monitor network fault management and network performance management. (Future work)
