ETSI MSG asks WG4 to agree the CRs on FDD BS Classification during this meeting and TSG RAN to produce Rel-6 versions of 25.104 and 25.141 in the December meeting, so that the FDD BS Classification can be included in the European Harmonised Standard (HS).
Ericsson noted that the CRs are ready and it is possible to finish most of the technical work in this meeting. Takaharu Nakamura (Fujitsu) questioned how CRs with square brackets could be used for a HS, and required clarification on which Release this LS refers to. It is clarified that it applies to Rel-6.
Han van Bussel (T-Mobile) questioned why the 3GPP procedure should be bypassed in this WI, and why the same rule shouldn't apply to the rest of the RAN4 WIs, like WDS or FDD UE Improvements. He suggested that ETSI MSG should produce the HS when the technical specification in 3GPP is ready, not force 3GPP to produce a specification when the technical work isn't finished. The chairman summarized that this discussion should take place in TSG RAN, WG4 should simply asses the technical aspect of the CRs presented.
