1  ScopeWord‑p. 5

The present document is a technical report for the work item on additional enhancements for NB-IoT, covering the study on the coexistence of NB-IoT with NR, which is one of the objectives of the WI [2].

4.1  Task description

The objective on NR and NB-IoT coexistence is,
  • Specify NB-IoT resource reservation for UL/DL FDD/TDD NB-IoT non-anchor carriers, to avoid resource overlap between NR and NB-IoT when NB-IoT is deployed within an NR carrier [RAN1, RAN2, RAN4].
  • For NB-IoT in-band, guard band and standalone operation co-existence with NR, including the case of NR configured in 15kHz SS Block SCS and the case of 30kHz SS Block SCS as specified in 38.101-1, investigate the following: [RAN4]
    • 15KHz, 30KHz, and 60KHz numerologies for NR FR1 concerned bands, with higher priority given first to 15kHz and then to 30kHz
    • Channel raster, PRB and subcarrier grid alignment between NB-IoT and NR
    • Study feasible NB-IoT carrier(s) placement allocation without RF backward compatibility impact and compatible with Rel'13 NB-IoT and Rel'15 NR, to operate simultaneously within various NR channel bandwidths
    • Study if the +6dB downlink RE power boosting can still be allowed for both in-band and guard band operation modes when co-existing with NR
    • Synchronization issue between NR and NB-IoT, including timing advance
    • Frequency band support in NB-IoT and NR
    • Testability applicable to RF
    • Coexistence between R15 NR and R13/R14/R15 NB-IoT.
