"Study on New Radio Access Technology" SID mandates the WGs to work for unlicensed band support :
(4) Study and identify the technical features necessary to enable the new radio access to meet objective 1 and 2, also including:
Operation in licensed bands (paired and unpaired), and licensed assisted operations in unlicensed bands
Survey on 60GHz regulatory landscape
[Standalone operation in unlicensed bands is FFS]
Regulatory requirements on the unlicensed bands of initial interest would need to be studied. Way Forward on NR & standalone unlicensed was discussed at RAN#73 . Conclusion was to have RAN reflector email discussion survey on 60 GHz regulatory landscape.
The results and findings of the study are documented in this technical report.
It should be noted that there are studies on frequency-related matters for International Mobile Telecommunications identification including possible additional allocations to the mobile services on a primary basis in portion(s) of the frequency range between 24.25 and 86 GHz for the future development of International Mobile Telecommunications for 2020 and beyond. In particular, 66-71 GHz is being studied for potential IMT identification.
The present document contains the results and findings from the study item, "Study on New Radio Access Technology" .
This technical report documents the existing regulatory requirements for unlicensed spectrum deployment in the 60 GHz bands.
This document is a 'living' document, i.e. it is permanently updated and presented to TSG-RAN meetings.
