The objective of this study is to define the over the air (OTA) testing methodology for UE RF, UE RRM, and UE demodulation requirements for New Radio, the associated measurement uncertainty budget(s), and the related test tolerances.
The testing methodology development targets frequencies above 6 GHz, and the work is prioritized according to the frequency ranges that are included in the NR work item.
For mmWave NR UEs, RF requirements are specified as OTA requirements, using the applicable metrics. The definitions of these requirements are expected to align the spatial coverage of the requirement with the UE's working condition acceptable in expected directions. NR is expected to be used in more than one type of UEs, and different spatial coverage requirements may apply to different UE types.
