P25 CAP Bulletins

P25 CAP Bulletins

These areas organize P25 CAP Compliance Assessment Bulletins (CABs).

Accreditation Body and Laboratory Agreements

For DHS-authorized accreditation bodies and DHS-recognized laboratories

Laboratory Recognition Conditions and Criteria Agreement (August 2016) — A conditions and criteria agreement signed by laboratories seeking DHS recognition as P25 CAP laboratory. A prerequisite is a P25 CAP accreditation in accordance with the polices of the DHS-authorized accreditation body the laboratory selects.

Accreditation Body Authorization Conditions and Criteria Agreement (December 2014) — A conditions and criteria agreement signed by DHS-authorized accreditation bodies to operate the P25 CAP accreditation program.

Policy

P25 CAP Defining Documents

P25 CAP Minimum Feature Requirements (November 2017) — Defines the minimum interoperability features and capabilities required for P25 subscriber and repeater equipment capable of conventional operation to be eligible to be considered P25 CAP Compliant.

P25 CAP Baseline Laboratory Requirements (August 2016) — Describes the process for attaining recognition as a P25 CAP laboratory.

P25 CAP Laboratory Equipment Requirements (August 2016)  — Describes laboratory equipment requirements for attaining recognition as a P25 CAP laboratory.

P25 CAP Testing Requirements (August 2016) — Provides the requirements for the P25 CAP, including an overview of the P25 interfaces that are currently covered by the P25 CAP, and when the applicable SDOC documents and Summary Test Reports are required to accommodate the most current CABs.

Reporting

Format Requirements

To request the editable version of any SDOC template in Microsoft Word with built-in 508-compliance attributes defined or STR template in Microsoft Excel, please contact P25CAP@hq.dhs.gov.

SDOC Template for use with the ISSI/CSSI Interoperability Testing Requirements CAB (October 2019)

SDOC Template for use with ISSI/CSSI Conformance Testing Requirements CAB (May 2019)

Subscriber SDOC Template for use with the TDMA Testing Requirements CAB (December 2018)

Base Station SDOC Template for use with the TDMA Testing Requirements CAB (December 2018)

Supplier’s Declaration of Compliance (SDOC) Requirements (2018) — Identifies uniform format requirements for use in preparation of SDOC documents. These documents are submitted to DHS for review and approval. Once approved, SDOC documents can be viewed publicly at the P25 CAP Approved (Grant-Eligible) Equipment page of this site.

Summary Test Report (STR) Requirements (2018) — Identifies uniform format requirements for use in preparation of STR documents. These documents are submitted to DHS for review and approval. Once approved, Summary Test Reports can be requested via email (P25CAP@hq.dhs.gov).

Testing

Procedural Methods

Baseline Inter-Radio Frequency Sub-System Interface and Console Sub-System Interface (ISSI/CSSI) Interoperability Testing Requirements (October 2019) — Provides interoperability test cases for the P25 Console Sub-System Interface and the P25 Inter-RF Sub-System Interface. Testing is defined for three different types of ISSI/CSSI equipment: two RFSS that are connected by an ISSI; a RFSS that is connected to a console by a CSSI; and a console that is connected to a RFSS by a CSSI.

Compliance Testing Rules (October 2019) — Provides rules for the application of the different Common Air Interface (CAI) CAB versions.

Baseline Inter-Radio Frequency Sub-System Interface and Console Sub-System Interface (ISSI/CSSI) Conformance Testing Requirements (May 2019) — P25 CAP ISSI/CSSI Conformance testing will validate the FNE equipment under test portion of the SIP, SDP and RTP messages that are exchanged during specific test cases between the FNE equipment under test and the conformance test tool. The conformance test tool solution enables conformance testing of these interfaces in the P25 public safety network. The test tool simulates RFSSs, console subscriber units and mobile subscriber units to test FNE equipment with the P25 ISSI/CSSI interfaces.

Baseline Common Air Interface Testing Requirements (October 2018) Applies to P25 Subscriber Equipment, Repeater, and Base and Fixed Station products. Update to the previously released 2017 Common Air Interface Compliance Assessment Bulletin (CAB). This CAB eliminates some test cases for subscriber direct interoperability testing, subscriber repeat interoperability testing and base station repeat interoperability. It also removes the requirement to report 700MHz Adjacent Channel Power Ratio test case results, as the 700MHz Adjacent Channel Power Ratio test results were submitted for FCC equipment authorization.

Baseline Common Air Interface Testing Requirements (July 2017) — Applies to P25 Subscriber Equipment, Repeater, and Base and Fixed Station products and includes Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) testing requirements.

Baseline Common Air Interface Testing Requirements (August 2016) — Applies to P25 Subscriber Equipment, Repeater, and Base and Fixed Station products.

Baseline Inter-RF Subsystem Interface Testing Requirements (August 2016) — Applies to P25 Inter-RF Subsystem products.
