Title: PLMN radio interface with upper layer supervision of layer one transport channels

Abstract: Flexibly configurable layer one transport channels produce radio blocks in response to communication information and extract communication information from radio blocks. One of the transport channels can be enabled to extract its associated communication information from a radio block while another of the transport channels is maintained disabled. The one transport channel provides the extracted communication information to a decision maker in a higher layer. In response to the extracted communication information, the decision maker decides whether the other transport channel should be enabled, and provides to the physical layer an indication of its decision.
