The present document specifies technical characteristics and methods of measurements for the types of equipment:
1) Base Station for Evolved Universal Terrestrial Radio Access (E-UTRA).
2) Base Station for Evolved Universal Terrestrial Radio Access (E-UTRA) with NB-IoT.
3) Base Station for NB-IoT standalone.
This radio equipment type is capable of operating in all or any part of the operating bands given in table 1-1. Unless stated otherwise, requirements specified for the TDD duplex mode apply for downlink and uplink operations in Frame Structure Type 2. NB-IoT is designed to operate in the E-UTRA operating bands 1, 3, 8, 20, 28, 31, 41, 42, 43, 65, 72, 87, 88 which are defined in table 1-1.
The present document covers conducted requirements for E-UTRA Base Stations for 3GPP Release 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14 and 15. Additionally, it includes the requirements for E-UTRA Base Station operating bands and E-UTRA CA operating bands from 3GPP Release 16.
NOTE: The relationship between the present document and essential requirements of article 3.2 of Directive 2014/53/EU is given in annex A.
