The present document is a technical report for the work item on Work Item on New Radio (NR) Access Technology, covering the general aspects for RF, RRM and demodulation for NR.
While requirements are often generic and band agnostic, there may in many cases be separate requirements for different bands. In some cases, these are identified directly using the band number. They will also be references to different frequency ranges covering many bands, identified as requirements for sub-6 GHz bands (Frequency Range 1) and mmWave bands (Frequency Range 2). These ranges are for the purpose of the specification defined as follows:
FR1: 450 - 6000 MHz
FR2: 24250 - 52600 MHz.
The lowest frequency in FR1 is selected as the lowest frequency identified for IMT by the ITU-R . FR2 is defined starting from the lowest frequency under study for IMT under WRC Agenda item 1.13, up to the highest frequency within the scope of the present work item. In the future when new operating bands may be added outside the frequency ranges of FR1 and FR2, those can be incorporated by extending FR1 or FR2, or by adding new ranges (FR3, etc.).
