7.4  KPIs for a 5G system with satellite access |R17|p. 95

7.4.1  Descriptionp. 95

Satellite access networks are based on infrastructures integrated on a minimum of satellites that can be placed in either GEO, MEO or LEO.
The propagation delay via satellite associated with these orbit ranges can be summarized in Table 7.4.1-1:
  UE to serving satellite propagation delay [ms] [NOTE 1] UE to ground max propagation delay [ms] [NOTE 2]
Min Max
The serving satellite provides the satellite radio link to the UE
delay between UE and ground station via satellite link; Inter satellite links are not considered

Up to 120km/h applies to vehicle mounted while stationary applies to fixed installation.

7.5  High-availability IoT traffic |R17|p. 96

7.5.1  Descriptionp. 96

Several scenarios require the support of highly reliable machine type communication such as those, typically (but not restricted to) related to medical monitoring. They involve different deployment areas, different device speeds and densities and require a high-availability communication service to transfer a low data rate uplink data stream from one or several devices to an application.
Their related performance requirements can be found in Table 7.5.2-1.

"deep indoor" term is meant to be places like e.g. elevators, building's basement, underground parking lot…
These performance requirements aim energy-efficient transmissions performed using a device powered with a 3.3V battery of capacity < 1000 mAh that can last at least 1 month without recharging and whereby the peak current for transmit operations stays below 50 mA.

7.6  High data rate and low latency |R17|p. 98

7.6.1  AR/VRp. 98

Audio-visual interaction is characterised by a human being interacting with the environment or people, or controlling a UE, and relying on audio-visual feedback. In the use cases like VR and interactive conversation the latency requirements include the latencies at the application layer (e.g. codecs), which could be specified outside of 3GPP.
To support VR environments with low motion-to-photon capabilities, the 5G system shall support:
  • motion-to-photon latency in the range of 7 to 15 ms while maintaining the required resolution of up to 8k giving user data rate of up to [1Gbit/s] and
  • motion-to-sound delay of [< 20 ms].
To support interactive task completion during voice conversation the 5G system shall support low-delay speech coding for interactive conversational services (100 ms, one-way mouth-to-ear).
Due to the separate handling of the audio and video component, the 5G system will have to cater for the VR audio-video synchronisation in order to avoid having a negative impact on the user experience (i.e. viewers detecting lack of synchronization). To support VR environments the 5G system shall support audio-video synchronisation thresholds:
  • in the range of [125 ms yo 5 ms] for audio delayed and
  • in the range of [45 ms to 5 ms] for audio advanced.
The 5G system shall support service continuity for AR/VR to support immersive user experience under high UE mobility.
When it comes to implementation of applications containing AR/VR components, the requirements on the 5G network could depend on architectural choices implementing these services. Note 3 in Table 7.1-1 above gives an example on such dependences for a VR application in a 5G system. Table 7.6.1-1 below illustrates additional use cases and provides more corresponding requirements on the 5G system.
  • Cloud/Edge/Split Rendering - Cloud/Edge/Split Rendering is characterised by the transition and exchange of the rendering data between the rendering server and device.
  • Gaming or Training Data Exchanging - This use case is characterised by the exchange of the gaming or training service data between two 5G connected AR/VR devices.
  • Consume VR content via tethered VR headset - This use case involves a tethered VR headset receiving VR content via a connected UE; this approach alleviates some of the computation complexity required at the VR headset, by allowing some or all decoding functionality to run locally at the connected UE. The requirements in the Table below refer to the direct wireless link between the tethered VR headset and the corresponding connected UE.

Unless otherwise specified, all communication via wireless link is between UEs and network node (UE to network node and/or network node to UE) rather than direct wireless links (UE to UE).
Length x width (x height).
Communication includes direct wireless links (UE to UE).
Latency and reliability KPIs can vary based on specific use case/architecture, e.g. for cloud/edge/split rendering, and can be represented by a range of values.
The decoding capability in the VR headset and the encoding/decoding complexity/time of the stream will set the required bit rate and latency over the direct wireless link between the tethered VR headset and its connected UE, bit rate from 100 Mbit/s to [10] Gbit/s and latency from 5 ms to 10 ms.
The performance requirement is valid for the direct wireless link between the tethered VR headset and its connected UE.
Similar user-experienced data rates may be achievable also at higher UE speeds. [50]

7.7  KPIs for UE to network relaying in 5G system |R17|p. 99

In several scenarios, it can be beneficial to relay communication between one UE and the network via one or more other UEs. The functional requirements related to relaying can be found in clause 6.9.2. Performance requirements for relaying in different scenarios can be found in Table 7.7-1.

Area traffic capacity is determined by high bandwidth consuming devices (e.g. ultra HD TVs, VR headsets), the number of devices has been calculated assuming a family of 4 members.
Highest data rate assumes audio sensors with sampling rate of 192 kHz and 24 bits sample size.
Three meters (gas, water, electricity) per house, medium density of 50 to 70 houses per hectare.
A large containership with a mix of 20 foot and 40 foot containers is assumed.
A mix of MCPTT, MCVideo, and MCData is assumed. Average 3 devices per firefighter / police officer, of which one video device. Area traffic based on 1080 p, 60 fps is 12 Mbit/s video, with an activity factor of 30% in uplink (30% of devices transmit simultaneously at high bitrate) and 15% in downlink.
Communication for wearables is relayed via a UE. This relay UE can use a further relay UE.
End-to-end latency implies that all hops are included.
'Metallic' implies an environment with a lot of metal obstructions (e.g. machinery, containers). 'Deep indoor' implies that there can be concrete walls / floors between the devices.
All the values in this Table are example values and not strict requirements.

7.8  KPIs for 5G Timing Resiliency |R18|p. 100

The 5G system shall be able to support a holdover time capability with timing resiliency performance requirements defined in Table 7.8-1.
Use case Holdover time (note 3) Sync target Sync accuracy Service area Mobility Remarks
Power grid (5G network)Up to 24 hourUTC (note 1)<250 ns to1000 ns (note2)< 20 km²lowWhen 5G System provides direct PTP Grandmaster capability to sub-stations
Power grid (time synchronization device)>5 sUTC (note 1)<250 ns to1000 ns (note2)< 20 km²lowWhen 5G sync modem is integrated into PTP grandmaster solution (with 24h holdover capability at sub-stations)
A different synchronization target is acceptable as long as the offset is preconfigured when an alternatively sourced time differs from GNSS. In this case, a 5G end device will provide PPS output which can be used for measuring the difference.
Different accuracy measurements are based on different configurations needed to support the underlying requirements from IEC 61850-9-3 [32]. The range is between 250 ns and 1000 ns. The actual requirement depends on the specific deployment.
This requirement will vary based on deployment options.
Type of trading activity Maximum divergence from UTC Granularity of the timestamp (note 1)
Activity using high frequency algorithmic trading technique100 μs≤1 μs
Activity on voice trading systems1 s≤1 s
Activity on request for quote systems where the response requires human intervention or where the system does not allow algorithmic trading1 s≤1 s
Activity of concluding negotiated transactions1 s≤1 s
Any other trading activity1 ms≤1 ms
Only relevant for the case where the time synchronization assists in configuring the required granularity for the timestamp (for direct use), otherwise it will be configured separately as part of the financial transaction timestamp process.
