3  Definitions, symbols and abbreviationsWord‑p. 13

3.1  Definitions

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 is configured to transmit and receive multiple contiguously aggregated carriers.
Bidirectional spectrum:
UL/DL common spectrum in which the UE supports the configuration of uplink or downlink CCs.
Beam correspondence:
the ability of the UE to select a suitable beam for UL transmission based on DL measurements with or without relying on UL beam sweeping.
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.
EIRP(Link=Link angle, Meas=Link angle):
measurement of the UE such that the link angle is aligned with the measurement angle. EIRP (indicator to be measured) can be replaced by EIS, Frequency, EVM, carrier Leakage, In-band eission and OBW.
EIRP(Link=TX beam peak direction, Meas=Link angle):
measurement of the EIRP of the UE such that the measurement angle is aligned with the beam peak direction within an acceptable measurement error uncertainty. EIRP (indicator to be measured) can be replaced by Frequency, EVM, carrier Leakage, In-band eission and OBW
EIRP(Link=Spherical coverage grid, Meas=Link angle):
measurement of the EIRP spherical coverage of the UE such that the EIRP link and measurement angles are aligned with the directions along the spherical coverage grid within an acceptable measurement error uncertainty. Alternatively, the spherical coverage grid can be replaced by the beam peak search grid as the results from the beam peak search can be re-used for spherical coverage.
EIS (equivalent isotropic sensitivity):
sensitivity for an isotropic directivity device equivalent to the sensitivity of the discussed device exposed to an incoming wave from a defined AoA
EIS(Link=RX beam peak direction, Meas=Link angle):
measurement of the EIS of the UE such that the measurement angle is aligned with the RX beam peak direction within an acceptable measurement error uncertainty.
Fallback group:
Group of carrier aggregation bandwidth classes for which it is mandatory for a UE to be able to fallback to lower order CA bandwidth class configuration. It is not mandatory for a UE to be able to fallback to lower order CA bandwidth class configuration that belong to a different fallback group
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.
Link angle:
a DL-signal AoA from the view point of the UE, as described in Annex J. If the beam lock function is used to lock the UE beam(s), the link angle can become any arbitrary AoA once the beam lock has been activated.
Measurement angle:
the angle of measurement of the desired metric from the view point of the UE, as described in Annex J
radiated interface boundary:
operating band specific radiated requirements reference point where the radiated requirements apply
radiated requirements reference point:
for the RF measurement setup, the radiated requirements reference point is located at the centre of the quiet zone. From the UE perspective the reference point is the input of the UE antenna array
RX beam peak direction:
direction where the maximum total component of RSRP and thus best total component of EIS is found
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.
TX beam peak direction:
direction where the maximum total component of EIRP is found
TRP(Link=TX beam peak direction, Meas=TRP grid):
measurement of the TRP of the UE such that the measurement angles are aligned with the directions of the TRP grid points within an acceptable measurement uncertainty while the link angle is aligned with the TX beam peak direction
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
