The purpose of this TR is to document the identified NR enhancements and corresponding evaluations for a single global solution framework for NR based access to unlicensed spectrum.
It addresses evaluation methodology and possible scenarios for NR based unlicensed deployments.
It documents the existing regulatory requirements for unlicensed spectrum deployment in the 5GHz bands, and other bands.
It identifies and captures coexistence evaluations of physical layer options and enhancements to NR and, if necessary, NR RAN protocols to meet the requirements and targets for unlicensed spectrum deployments.
It contains an assessment of the feasibility of base station and terminal operation of 5GHz band (based on regulatory limits) in conjunction with relevant licensed frequency bands.
