1  ScopeWord‑p. 6

The present document specifies the technical characteristics, applicable test conditions, performance assessment and performance criteria for of NR Repeater and associated ancillary equipment in respect of Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC). Technical specifications related to the antenna port are not included in the present document.
The environment classification used in the present document refers to the residential, commercial and light industrial environment classification used in IEC 61000-6-1 [6] and IEC 61000-6-3 [7].
The EMC requirements have been selected to ensure an adequate level of compatibility for apparatus at residential, commercial and light industrial environments. The levels, however, do not cover extreme cases which may occur in any location but with low probability of occurrence.

3.1  DefinitionsWord‑p. 7

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.
ancillary equipment:
electrical or electronic equipment, that is intended to be used with a receiver or transmitter
antenna port:
for EMC purposes, port for connection of an antenna used for intentional transmission and/or reception of radiated RF energy, equivalent to an RF antenna connector.
channel bandwidth:
the RF bandwidth supporting a single NR RF carrier with the transmission bandwidth configured in the uplink or downlink of a cell. The channel bandwidth is measured in MHz and is used as a reference for transmitter and receiver RF requirements.
continuous phenomena:
electromagnetic disturbance, the effects of which on a particular device or equipment cannot be resolved into a succession of distinct effects (IEC 60050-161 [20]).
exclusion band:
frequency range(s) not subject to test or assessment.
operating band:
frequency range in which NR operates (paired or unpaired), that is defined with a specific set of technical requirements.
A particular interface, of the specified equipment (apparatus), with the electromagnetic environment. For example, any connection point on an equipment intended for connection of cables to or from that equipment is considered as a port (see Figure 3.1-1).
Copy of original 3GPP image for 3GPP TS 38.114, Fig. 3.1-1: Examples of ports
Figure 3.1-1: Examples of ports
(⇒ copy of original 3GPP image)
A device that receives, amplifies and transmits the radiated or conducted RF carrier both in the down-link direction (from the base station to the mobile area) and in the up-link direction (from the mobile to the base station). In operating bands specified with only down-link or up-link, only the up-link or down-link as specified for the operating band is repeated.
signal/control port:
port intended for the interconnection of components of an EUT, or between an EUT and associated equipment and used in accordance with relevant functional specifications (for example for the maximum length of cable connected to it).
spatial exclusion zone:
range of angles where no tests of radiated immunity are made for Repeater type 2-O (i.e. half sphere around the EUT's radiating direction).
telecommunication port:
ports which are intended to be connected to telecommunication networks (e.g. public switched telecommunication networks, integrated services digital networks), local area networks (e.g. Ethernet, Token Ring) and similar networks.
transient phenomena:
pertaining to or designating a phenomena or a quantity which varies between two consecutive steady states during a time interval short compared with the time-scale of interest (IEC 60050-161 [20]).
