This document is the Technical Report for the Work Item on Multi-band and Multi-standard radio BS
The objective of MB-MSR Work Item is to specify the RF requirements for multi-band MSR (MB-MSR) BS. The
requirements for MB-MSR BS are based on macro-cell deployment scenarios. The requirements based on Micro and
Pico deployment scenarios will be developed in a second step.
All single- and multi-RAT configurations (excluding only GSM+GSM) in the different bands shall be considered.
UTRA MC-HSPA as well as EUTRA Carrier Aggregation, and transmit power imbalance between bands / carriers shall
be considered. The RF requirements of the existing Base Station types will remain and be applicable within their current scope. For a MB-MSR Base Station, the new RF requirements will be applicable for that equipment.
The work will focus on the following steps:
Develop the framework of the RF requirements for MB-MSR BS, using band 20 + band 8 as an initial scenario
for FDD and band 34 + band 39 as an initial scenario for TDD.
Identify additional deployment scenarios and band combinations for MB-MSR BS.
Define the MB-MSR BS based on common transmitter and/or receiver RF chain for the multiple bands.
Creation of core requirements for MB-MSR BS for all the identified deployment scenarios and band
combinations with an initial focus on the completion of requirements for band 20 + band 8 and band 34 + band
The existing per band requirement should be maintained wherever possible.
Development of test configurations and specification of the test requirements corresponding to the modified core requirements.
The following specification work is required:
Core RF requirements for RAN4 MSR specifications.
Test requirements for RAN4 MSR specifications, derived from the core RF requirements.
