8.1.41.1 Test purpose

To verify the CE UE’s ability to make a correct reporting of an event for serving cell without using any measurement gaps within the E-UTRA FD-FDD intra-frequency cell measurement requirements.

8.1.41.2 Test applicability

This test applies to all types of E-UTRA FD-FDD CE UE, including both BL/CE and non-BL/CE UE.

8.1.41.3 Minimum conformance requirements

Editor’s note: The test requirements in this section refer explicitly to Category M1, but they are applicable to Category M2 and non-BL/CE UEs. Pending discussion in RAN4 is needed to update the wording.

Same minimum conformance requirements as in clause 8.1.23.3.

The normative reference for this requirement is TS 36.133 [4] clause 8.13.2.1.1 and A.8.1.41.

8.1.41.4.2 Test procedure

The test consists of one active cell. In the measurement control information, it is indicated to the UE that event-triggered reporting with Event A2 is used. The test consists of two successive time periods, with time durations of T1 and T2 respectively. At the beginning of T2 the transmission power of cell 1 is decreased, and this shall result in reporting of Event A2.

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

2. Set the parameters according to T1 in Table 8.1.41.5-1. 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 8.1.41.5-1.

6. UE shall transmit a MeasurementReport message triggered by Event A2. If the overall delays measured from the beginning of time period T2 is less than 480 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.

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. 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 CE according to TS 36.508 [7] clause 7.2A.3.

9. Repeat step 2-8 until the confidence level according to Tables G.2.3-1 in Annex G clause G.2 is achieved.

Note 1: OCNG shall be used such that all cells are fully allocated and a constant total transmitted power spectral density is achieved for all OFDM symbols.

Note 2: Interference from noise sources not specified in the test is assumed to be constant over subcarriers and time and shall be modelled as AWGN of appropriate power for Noc to be fulfilled.

Note 3: Es/Iot, RSRP, SCH_RP and Io have been derived from other parameters for information purposes. They are not settable parameters themselves.

Note 4: The resources for uplink transmission are assigned to the UE prior to the start of time period T2.

The overall delays measured is defined as the time from the beginning of time period T2, to the moment the UE send one Event A2 triggered measurement report. The overall delays measured in the test may be up to 2xTTIDCCH higher than the measurement reporting delays because of TTI insertion uncertainty of the measurement report in DCCH.

The UE shall send one Event A2 triggered measurement report, with a measurement reporting delay less than 480ms from the beginning of time period T2.

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

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%.
