ABSTRACT: This document replaces TA-TSY-000911.
The basic intent of a Basic Exchange Radio (BEXR) system is to provide service to isolated or remotely located rural customers where
it is economically advantageous. The applicability of these systems is generally limited to rural usage due to two factors:
1) the shared use of the authorized radio spectrum with mobile telephone services
(2) the inability of the current economical BEXR technologies to transmit high-speed voiceband data signals.
This Technical Reference (TR) provides the view of Telcordia on generic functional criteria for a BEXR system for use as wireless
local exchange distribution facilities in rural areas. The BEXR system discussed in this document consists of a Central Office
Terminal (COT) located near the local exchange switch, a Radio Base Station (RBS) located either with the COT or remotely at a site
that optimizes the point-to-multipoint radio transmissions, and multiple Remote Terminals (RTs) located near the customer sites.
