  3. 3. 1. INTRODUCTION This document outlines O2 Ireland’s GSM & UMTS radio network interfaces. It describes the public interface between the mobile terminal equipment and the base station equipment. The information contained within this document refers only to those services which are live on the O2 Ireland network at time of writing or revision of this document. 1.1. Background In accordance with the Radio and Telecommunications Terminal Equipment (R&TTE) Regulations (S.I No. 240 of 2001), each public telecommunications network operator is required to issue accurate technical specifications about their network interfaces. Information supplied must be detailed adequately and accurately in order to allow the design of telecommunications terminal equipment capable of using all services provided through the corresponding interfaces. 1.2.
