26.1313GPPRelease 17RequirementsTerminal acoustic characteristics for telephonyTS

The present document is applicable to any terminal capable of supporting narrowband, wideband, super-wideband or fullband telephony, either as a stand-alone service or as the telephony component of a multimedia service. The present document specifies minimum performance requirements for the electro-acoustic characteristics of 3G, LTE, NR and WLAN terminals when used to provide narrowband, wideband, super-wideband or fullband telephony.

The set of minimum performance requirements enables a guaranteed level of speech quality while taking possible physical limits of the terminal design into account. Some performance objectives are also defined, if such design limits can be overcome. Care must be taken in applying performance objectives in isolation, not to degrade overall end-user speech quality.
