In this specification the Minimum Requirements are specified as general requirements and additional requirements. Where the Requirement is specified as a general requirement, the requirement is mandated to be met in all scenarios
For specific scenarios for which an additional requirement is specified, in addition to meeting the general requirement, the UE is mandated to meet the additional requirements.
The spurious emissions power requirements are for the long-term average of the power. For the purpose of reducing measurement uncertainty it is acceptable to average the measured power over a period of time sufficient to reduce the uncertainty due to the statistical nature of the signal
Terminal that supports EN-DC configuration shall meet E-UTRA requirements as specified in TS 36.101
and NR requirements as in TS 38.101-1
and TS 38.101-2
unless otherwise specified in this specification
All the requirements for intra-band contiguous and non-contiguous EN-DC apply under the assumption of the same uplink-downlink and special subframe configurations in the E-UTRA and slot format indicated by UL-DL-configurationCommon and UL-DL-configurationDedicated in the NR for the EN-DC.
For EN-DC combinations with CA configurations for E-UTRA and/or NR, all the requirements for E-UTRA and/or NR all the requirements for E-UTRA and/or NR intra-band contiguous and non-contiguous CA apply under the assumption of the same slot format indicated by UL-DL-configurationCommon and UL-DL-configurationDedicated in the PSCell and SCells for NR and the same uplink-downlink and special subframe configurations in Pcell and SCells for E-UTRA.
A terminal which supports an EN-DC configuration shall support:
If any subsets of the EN-DC configuration do not specify its own bandwidth combination sets in 5.3B, then the terminal shall support the same E-UTRA bandwidth combination sets it signals the support for in E-UTRA CA configuration part of E-UTRA - NR DC and shall support the same NR bandwidth combination sets it signals the support for in NR CA configuration part of E-UTRA - NR DC.
Else if one of the subsets of the EN-DC configuration specify its own bandwidth combination sets in 5.3B, then the terminal shall support a product set of channel bandwidth for each band specified by E-UTRA bandwidth combination sets, NR bandwidth combination sets, and EN-DC bandwidth combination sets it singnals the support.A terminal which supports an inter-band EN-DC configuration with a certain UL configuration shall support the all lower order DL configurations of the lower order EN-DC combinations, which have this certain UL configuration and the fallbacks of this UL configuration.
A terminal which supports CA or DC configurations, which include FR2 intra-band CA combinations with multiple subblocks, where at least one of the subblocks consists of a contiguous CA combination, is not required to support all possible fallback combinations but can directly fall back to a single FR2 carrier. Deactivating carriers within the CA or DC combination is still possible.
Terminal that supports inter-band NR-DC between FR1 and FR2 configuration shall meet the requirements for corresponding CA configuration (suffix A), unless otherwise specified.
Unless stated otherwise the following suffixes are used for indicating at 2nd level clause, shown in Table 4.3-1.
Carrier Aggregation (CA) between FR1 and FR2
Dual-Connectivity (DC) with and without SUL including UL sharing from UE perspective, inter-band NR DC between FR1 and FR2
