3  Definitions, symbols and abbreviationsWord‑p. 19

3.1  DefinitionsWord‑p. 19

For the purposes of the present document, the terms and definitions given in TR 21.905 and the following apply. A term defined in the present document takes precedence over the definition of the same term, if any, in TR 21.905.
Aggregated Channel Bandwidth:
The RF bandwidth in which a UE transmits and receives multiple contiguously aggregated carriers.
Carrier aggregation:
Aggregation of two or more component carriers in order to support wider transmission bandwidths.
Carrier aggregation band:
A set of one or more operating bands across which multiple carriers are aggregated with a specific set of technical requirements.
Carrier aggregation bandwidth class:
A class defined by the aggregated transmission bandwidth configuration and maximum number of component carriers supported by a UE.
Carrier aggregation configuration:
A combination of CA operating band(s) and CA bandwidth class(es) supported by a UE.
Con-current operation:
The simultaneous transmission and reception of sidelink and Uu interfaces while operation is agnostic of the service used on each interface.
Contiguous carriers:
A set of two or more carriers configured in a spectrum block where there are no RF requirements based on co-existence for un-coordinated operation within the spectrum block.
Contiguous resource allocation:
A resource allocation of consecutive resource blocks within one carrier or across contiguously aggregated carriers. The gap between contiguously aggregated carriers due to the nominal channel spacing is allowed.
Contiguous spectrum:
Spectrum consisting of a contiguous block of spectrum with no sub-block gaps.
Inter-band carrier aggregation:
Carrier aggregation of component carriers in different operating bands.
Intra-band contiguous carrier aggregation:
Contiguous carriers aggregated in the same operating band.
Intra-band non-contiguous carrier aggregation:
Non-contiguous carriers aggregated in the same operating band.
Sub-band:
For a UE that supports shared spectrum channel access in wideband operation, a sub-band is the set of RBs within an approximately 20 MHz segment of the channel where the wideband channel is uniformly divided into an integer number of 20 MHz sub-bands. Sub-bands may be separately allocated in uplink and downlink.
Sub-block:
This is one contiguous allocated block of spectrum for transmission and reception by the same UE. There may be multiple instances of sub-blocks within an RF bandwidth.
Sub-block bandwidth:
The bandwidth of one sub-block.
Sub-block gap:
A frequency gap between two consecutive sub-blocks within an RF bandwidth, where the RF requirements in the gap are based on co-existence for un-coordinated operation.
UE transmission bandwidth configuration:
Set of resource blocks located within the UE channel bandwidth which may be used for transmitting or receiving by the UE.
Vehicular UE:
A UE embedded in a vehicle, permanently connected to an embedded antenna system that radiates externally for NR operating bands.
Wideband operation:
For a UE that supports shared spectrum channel access, wideband operation refers to operation within a channel larger than 20 MHz in which intra-cell guard bands may be configured to distinguish individual RB-sets
