P1914.3

Standard for Radio Over Ethernet Encapsulations and Mappings

 

IEEE 1914.3 Scope:

This standard specifies:

1) The encapsulation of digitized radio In-phase Quadrature (IQ) payload, possible vendor specific and control data channels/flows into an encapsulating Ethernet frame payload field.

2) The header format for both structure-aware and structure-agnostic encapsulation of existing digitized radio transport formats. The structure-aware encapsulation has detailed knowledge of the encapsulated digitized radio transport format content. The structure-agnostic encapsulation is only a container for the encapsulated digitized radio transport frames.

3) A structure-aware mapper for Common Public Radio Interface (CPRI) frames and payloads to/from Ethernet encapsulated frames. The structure-agnostic encapsulation is not restricted to CPRI.

The Project is sponsored by the IEEE Communications Society/Standards Development Board (COM/SDB). For more information on this project, please contact the Chair or IEEE-SA Staff.

IEEE P1914.3-rev Scope:

This standard defines the encapsulation and mapping of radio protocols transported over Ethernet frames and Internet Protocol (IP) packets and the operation of mappers and demappers. Structure-agnostic definitions are provided for any digitized radio data. Structure-aware definitions are provided for the Common Public Radio Interface (CPRI). Native mode definitions are provided for normal and compressed digitized radio in-phase and quadrature (I/Q) payload. Specifications are provided for parameters, control messages, and mechanisms that are used to operate, administrate, and maintain mappers and demappers. A management model and a YANG data model are defined.
