1  ScopeWord‑p. 12
The present document establishes the minimum RF requirements for NR User Equipment (UE) Interworking operation with other radios. This includes but is not limited to additional requirements for carrier aggregation or NR dual connectivity between Range 1 and Range 2 and additional requirements due to NR non-standalone (NSA) operation mode with E-UTRA.
