8.1.40 E-UTRAN FDD-FDD intra-frequency event triggered reporting for UE configured with highSpeedEnhancedMeasFlag in synchronous cells

36.521-33GPPEvolved Universal Terrestrial Radio Access (E-UTRA)Part 3: Radio Resource Management (RRM) conformance testingRadio transmission and receptionRelease 16TSUser Equipment (UE) conformance specification

8.1.40.1 Test purpose

To verify the UE’s ability to make a correct reporting of an event in DRX when UE is configured with highSpeedEnhancedMeasFlag within the E-UTRA FDD-FDD intra frequency cell search requirements.

8.1.40.2 Test applicability

This test applies to all types of E-UTRA FDD UE release 14 and forward which supports highSpeedEnhancedMeasFlag. Applicability requires support for FGI bit 5.

8.1.40.3 Minimum conformance requirements

When highSpeedEnhancedMeasFlag is configured the UE shall be able to identify a new detectable FDD intra frequency cell within Tidentify_intra as defined in table 8.1.2.2.1.2-1B of TS 36.133 [4] clause 8.1.2.2.1.2.

A cell shall be considered detectable when

– RSRP related side conditions given in Sections 9.1.2.1 and 9.1.2.2 are fulfilled for a corresponding Band,

– RSRQ related side conditions given in Clause 9.1.5.1 are fulfilled for a corresponding Band,

– RS-SINR related side conditions given in Section 9.1.17.2.1 are fulfilled for a corresponding Band,

– SCH_RP and SCH Ês/Iot according to Annex B.2.1 for a corresponding Band.

When highSpeedEnhancedMeasFlag is configured in the RRC_CONNECTED state the measurement period for intra frequency measurements is Tmeasure_intra as defined in table 8.1.2.2.1.2-4 of TS 36.133 [4] clause 8.1.2.2.1.2. . The UE shall be capable of performing RSRP, RSRQ, and RS-SINR measurements for 8 identified-intra-frequency cells, and the UE physical layer shall be capable of reporting measurements to higher layers with the measurement period of Tmeasure_intra.

The RSRP measurement accuracy for all measured cells shall be as specified in TS 36.133 [4] clauses 9.1.2.1 and 9.1.2.2, and the RSRQ measurement accuracy for all measured cells shall be as specified in the clause 9.1.5.1.

Reported RSRP and RSRQ measurements contained in event triggered measurement reports shall meet the requirements in TS 36.133 [4] clauses 9.1.2.1, 9.1.2.2, and 9.1.5.1, respectively.

The UE shall not send any event triggered measurement reports, as long as no reporting criteria are fulfilled.

The measurement reporting delay is defined as the time between an event that will trigger a measurement report and the point when the UE starts to transmit the measurement report over the air interface. This requirement assumes that that the measurement report is not delayed by other RRC signalling on the DCCH. This measurement reporting delay excludes a delay uncertainty resulted when inserting the measurement report to the TTI of the uplink DCCH. The delay uncertainty is: 2 x TTIDCCH where TTIDCCH is the duration of subframe or slot or subslot when the measurement report is transmitted on the PUSCH with subframe or slot or subslot duration. This measurement reporting delay excludes a delay which caused by no UL resources for UE to send the measurement report.

The event triggered measurement reporting delay, measured without L3 filtering shall be less than Tidentify_intra defined in TS 36.133 [4] clause 8.1.2.2.1.2. When L3 filtering is used an additional delay can be expected.

If a cell which has been detectable at least for the time period Tidentify_intra defined in TS 36.133 [4] section 8.1.2.2.1.1 becomes undetectable for a period ≤ 5 seconds and then the cell becomes detectable again and triggers an event, the event triggered measurement reporting delay shall be less than TMeasurement_Period Intra provided the timing to that cell has not changed more than 50 Ts and the L3 filter has not been used. When L3 filtering is used an additional delay can be expected.

The normative reference for this requirement is TS 36.133 [4] clause 8.1.2.2.1.2 and A.8.1.40.

8.1.40.4.2 Test procedure

The test consists of one active cell and one neighbour cell. In the measurement control information it is indicated to the UE that event-triggered reporting with Event A3 is used. The test consists of two successive time periods, with time durations of T1 and T2 respectively. During time duration T1, the UE shall not have any timing information of Cell 2.

In the measurement control information, it is indicated to the UE that event-triggered reporting with Event A3 is used. At the same time, highSpeedEnhancedMeasFlag is broadcasted to UE. The test consists of two successive time periods, with time duration of T1 and T2 respectively. During time duration T1, the UE shall not have any timing information of cell 2.

The uplink time alignment is not maintained and UE needs to use RACH to obtain UL allocation for measurement reporting.

1. Ensure the UE is in State 3A-RF according to TS 36.508 [7] clause 7.2A.3.

2. Set the parameters according to T1 in Table 8.1.40.5-1. Propagation conditions are set according to Annex B clauses B.1.1 and B.2.2. T1 starts.

3. SS shall transmit an RRCConnectionReconfiguration message.

4. The UE shall transmit RRCConnectionReconfigurationComplete message.

5. When T1 expires, the SS shall switch the power setting from T1 to T2 as specified in Table 8.1.40.5-1 and 8.1.40.5-2.

6. UE shall transmit a MeasurementReport message triggered by Event A3. If the overall delays measured from the beginning of time period T2 is less than 12800 ms then the number of successful tests is increased by one. If the UE fails to report the event within the overall delays measured requirement then the number of failure tests is increased by one. The measurement reporting delay is defined as the time from the beginning of time period T2 to the moment when the UE starts to send preambles on the PRACH for scheduling request (SR) to obtain allocation to send the measurement report on PUSCH.

7. After the SS receive the MeasurementReport message in step 6) or when T2 expires, the SS shall transmit RRCConnectionRelease message to release the RRC connection which includes the release of the established radio bearers as well as all radio resources.

8. Set Cell 2 physical cell identity = ((current cell 2 physical cell identity + 1) mod 14 + 2) for next iteration of the test procedure loop.

9. After the RRC connection release, the SS:
– transmits in Cell 1 a Paging message (including PagingRecord with UE-Identity) for the UE and ensures the UE is in State 3A according to TS 36.508 [7] clause 4.5.3A (if the paging fails, switches off and on the UE and ensures the UE is in State 3A-RF according to TS 36.508 [7] clause 7.2A.3),
or
– switches off and on the UE and ensures the UE is in State 3A-RF according to TS 36.508 [7] clause 7.2A.3.

10. Repeat step 2-9 until the confidence level according to Tables G.2.3-1 in Annex G clause G.2 is achieved.

11. Repeat step 1-10 for each sub-test in Table 8.1.40.4.1-1 as appropriate.

The UE shall send one Event A3 triggered measurement report, with a measurement reporting delay less than 12800 ms from the beginning of time period T2. The measurement reporting delay is defined as the time from the beginning of time period T2 to the moment when the UE starts to send preambles on the PRACH for scheduling request (SR) to obtain allocation to send the measurement report on PUSCH.

The UE shall not send event triggered measurement reports, as long as the reporting criteria are not fulfilled.

NOTE 1: The actual overall delays measured in the test may be up to one DRX cycle higher than the measurement reporting delays above because UE is allowed to delay the initiation of the measurement reporting procedure to the next until the Active Time.

NOTE 2: In order to calculate the rate of correct events the system simulator shall verify that it has received correct Event A3 measurement report.

For the test to pass, the total number of successful tests shall be more than 90% of the cases with a confidence level of 95%.
