IS 18010 : Part 5 : Sec 1 : 2020 Unified Digital Infrastructure Unified Last Mile Communication Protocols Stack - Part 5 Network Access Layer ( IEEE 802.15.4 ) - Section 1 Specification

ICS 35.100.10; 35.100.20 LITD 28

New Standard from Last Update.


1.1 This Standard (Part 5/Sec 1) establishes the network access layer of unified last mile communication protocol stack reference architecture (ULMCPS RA) and specifies requirements the physical layer and medium access control layer for the communication devices deployed in digital infrastructure.

1.2 This standard is based on IEEE 802.15.4 – 2020 and customized to comply with Indian spectrum regulatory notifications in the de-licensed Sub GHz 865 – 867 MHz band.

The current specification adds the SUN-FSK modulation schemes only. Other modulation schemes defined in IEEE 802.15.4 - 2020 may be considered in the future revisions of this standard based on the requirements.

1.3 This standard is applicable for constrained application with for low-data-rate wireless connectivity with fixed, portable, and moving devices with no battery or very limited battery consumption requirements.
