Historical Information (Incl. Closed groups)

The original specification work started in 1987, with the first Phase of GSM specifications.

If you have an ETSI On-Line account (ETSI Members), you can access the ETSI Technical Committee SMG documents (including Change Requests) via the On-line archive.

For past & present 3GPP group’s meeting documents (including Change Requests) choose the appropriate Technical Specification Group’s page;

All available versions of specifications can be found in the specs archive. To see which version of a spec was current at a particular meeting, consult the specs status database.

A useful source of information is the GSM-SMG Archive DVD-ROM. This archive contains the old SMG plenary Tdocs (and meeting reports). The GSM/SMG plenary reports go back as far as 1983 and the tdocs from 1985 up to the closure of SMG in June 2000. The old documents (i.e. up to 1996) are all scanned PDF files, so the searching capabilities are somewhat limited. Nevertheless, it IS possible to do a text search in the document lists.

Further details about SMG and GSM are available from the ETSI web site.
