4.1  Objectivep. 9

The objectives of the lower MSD objective in the Rel-18 UE RF FR1 WI are as follows:
Investigate the feasibility of lower MSD for inter-band CA/EN-DC/DC combinations [RAN4]
  • Select a limited set of band combinations (2-4 combinations) to cover all types of MSD (harmonic, harmonic mixing, IMD and cross band isolation)
  • Study how the MSD performance can be improved for the example band combinations
  • Study of MSD improvement with different MSD sources (harmonics, IMD2/3/4/5, cross band isolation and harmonic mixing)
  • Study the feasibility of and options for allowing a UE to signal improved lower MSD performance capability for combinations where MSD is allowed
  • Aim to conclude the study phase by RAN#99, and further discuss in RAN#99 how to handle the objective based on the study progress.

5  Band combinations selected for lower MSD analysisp. 9

The following example band combinations are used to study the feasibility of MSD improvement for different MSD types:
  • CA_n28-n40 (harmonic mixing)
  • CA_n41-n77 (cross band isolation)
  • CA_n1-n3-n78 and fallback combinations (IMD on the 3rd band, cross band isolation on CA_n1-n3 using 50MHz channel bandwidth, IMD2/4 and 2nd harmonic and harmonic mixing on CA_n3-n78)
