7 FR2 MIMO OTA requirements

38.1513GPPNRRelease 17TSUser Equipment (UE) Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) Over-the-Air (OTA) performance requirements

7.1 General

7.1.1 MIMO Average Spherical Coverage (MASC)

The MIMO Average Spherical Coverage (MASC) is the Figure of Merit of FR2 MIMO OTA requirement. FR2 MIMO OTA is measured with 36 constant-density points within the 3D sphere. The MASC is determined by the averaging of the best 18 sensitivity values for power class 3 UE. The averaging shall be done in linear scale for the MASC result according to the formula:

Such that {P70,1, …, P70,18} are the best 18 sensitivity values from all the 36 constant density measurement points, as defined in Annex B.2.3, as defined in Annex B.2.3.

The MASC shall be measured at the mid channel as specified in TS 38.508-1 subclause 4.3.1 [7]. The MASC shall be lower than the requirements specified in Clause 7.2.

If the number of test points where the UE can meet 70% maximum throughput outage is less than TBD, then UE fails the test.

Other criteria for FR2 are FFS.
