8.2 Performance requirements for PUSCH

36.1413GPPBase Station (BS) conformance testingEvolved Universal Terrestrial Radio Access (E-UTRA)Release 17TS

8.2.1 Performance requirements of PUSCH in multipath fading propagation conditions transmission on single antenna port

8.2.1.1 Definition and applicability

The performance requirement of PUSCH is determined by a minimum required throughput for a given SNR. The required throughput is expressed as a fraction of maximum throughput for the FRCs listed in Annex A. The performance requirements assume HARQ re-transmissions.

A test for a specific channel bandwidth is only applicable if the BS supports it.

For a BS supporting FDD multiple channel bandwidths but not supporting FDD UL carrier aggregation, only the tests for the lowest and the highest FDD channel bandwidths supported by the BS are applicable. For a BS supporting TDD multiple channel bandwidths but not supporting TDD UL carrier aggregation, only the tests for the lowest and the highest TDD channel bandwidths supported by the BS are applicable.For a BS supporting FDD UL carrier aggregation, only the FDD CC combination with largest aggregated bandwidth is used for the test. If there is more than one combination the FDD CC combination with the largest number of component carriers is used for the test. For this CC combination the tests using full PRB allocation FRC are conducted on per CC basis and measured by the required SNR levels corresponding to the bandwidths used on the different CCs.

For a BS supporting TDD UL carrier aggregation, only the TDD CC combination with largest aggregated bandwidth is used for the test. If there is more than one combination the TDD CC combination with the largest number of component carriers is used for the test. For this CC combination the tests using full PRB allocation FRC are conducted on per CC basis and measured by the required SNR levels corresponding to the bandwidths used on the different CCs.

For a BS supporting carrier aggregation the tests with single PRB FRC are conducted on any single component carrier only.

The requirements defined based on FRC in Annex A.17 apply to the BS supporting PUSCH with 256QAM.

The requirements defined based on FRC in Annex A.18 apply to the BS supporting PUSCH transmission in UpPTS. The requirements defined based on FRC in Annex A.19 apply to the BS supporting both PUSCH transmission in UpPTS and PUSCH with 256QAM.

8.2.1.2 Minimum Requirement

The minimum requirement is in TS 36.104 [2] subclause 8.2.1.1.

8.2.1.3 Test Purpose

The test shall verify the receiver’s ability to achieve throughput under multipath fading propagation conditions for a given SNR.

8.2.1.4 Method of test

8.2.1.4.1 Initial Conditions

Test environment: Normal, see subclause D.2.

RF channels to be tested: M; see subclause 4.7.

1) Connect the BS tester generating the wanted signal, multipath fading simulators and AWGN generators to all BS antenna connectors for diversity reception via a combining network as shown in Annex I.3.2.

8.2.1.4.2 Procedure

1) Adjust the AWGN generator, according to the channel bandwidth, defined in Table 8.2.1.4.2-1.

Table 8.2.1.4.2-1: AWGN power level at the BS input

Channel bandwidth [MHz]

AWGN power level

1.4

-92.7dBm / 1.08MHz

3

-88.7dBm / 2.7MHz

5

-86.5dBm / 4.5MHz

10

-83.5dBm / 9MHz

15

-81.7dBm / 13.5MHz

20

-80.4dBm / 18MHz

2) The characteristics of the wanted signal shall be configured according to the corresponding UL reference measurement channel defined in annex A and the test parameters in Table 8.2.1.4.2-2. For reference channels using 1 resource block the resource block in the middle of the channel bandwidth shall be used. In case the number of resource blocks in the channel bandwidth are even the one in the middle with lower number is to be used for testing. For PUSCH transmission in UpPTS, the special subframe configuration is 10 as specified in 36.211 [12] Table 4.2-1, and during the test only special subframe is scheduled.

3) The multipath fading emulators shall be configured according to the corresponding channel model defined in annex B.

4) Adjust the equipment so that required SNR specified in Table 8.2.1.5-1 to 8.2.1.5-6 is achieved at the BS input.

5) For each of the reference channels in Table 8.2.1.5-1 to 8.2.1.5-6 applicable for the base station, measure the throughput, according to annex E.

8.2.1.5 Test Requirement

The throughput measured according to subclause 8.2.1.4.2 shall not be below the limits for the SNR levels specified in Table 8.2.1.5-1 to 8.2.1.5-6.

8.2.2 Performance requirements for UL timing adjustment

8.2.2.1 Definition and applicability

The performance requirement of PUSCH is determined by a minimum required throughput measured for the moving UE at given SNR. The required throughput is expressed as 70% of maximum throughput for the FRCs listed in Annex A. The performance requirements assume HARQ re-transmissions.

In the tests for UL timing adjustment, two signals are configured, one being transmitted by moving UE and the other being transmitted by stationary UE. The transmission of SRS from UE is optional. FRC parameters in Table A.7-1 and Table A.8-1 are applied for both UEs. The received power for both UEs is the same. The resource blocks allocated for both UEs are consecutive. In Scenario 2, Doppler shift is not taken into account.

A test for a specific channel bandwidth is only applicable if the BS supports it.

For a BS supporting multiple channel bandwidths only the tests for the lowest and the highest channel bandwidths supported by the BS are applicable.

This requirement shall not be applied to Local Area BS and Home BS.

8.2.3 Performance requirements for HARQ-ACK multiplexed on PUSCH

8.2.3.1 Definition and applicability

The performance requirement of HARQ-ACK multiplexed on PUSCH is determined by the two parameters: probability of false detection of the ACK and the probability of detection of ACK. The performance is measured by the required SNR at probability of detection equal to 0.99. The probability of false detection of the ACK shall be 0.01 or less at PUSCH power settings presented in table 8.2.3.5-1.

The probability of detection of ACK on PUSCH is defined as conditional probability of detection of the ACK when the ACK is transmitted on PUSCH allocated RE.

The probability of false detection of the ACK on PUSCH is defined as a conditional probability of erroneous detection of the ACK when data only is sent on PUSCH allocated RE, where HARQ-ACK can be allocated (i.e. by puncturing data). Pseudo‑random data shall be used as an input for PUSCH coding and modulation purposes.

These tests shall be performed on one of RE’s, where HARQ-ACK information was multiplexed on PUSCH.

In the test for HARQ-ACK multiplexed on PUSCH data is punctured by HARQ-ACK information in both slots within a subframe on symbols as specified in 36.212 [13] subclause 5.2.2.8. Amount of resources for HARQ-ACK information is calculated according to 36.212 [13] subclause 5.2.2.6. None of CQI, RI nor SRS is to be transmitted in these tests. Tests are performed for one bit HARQ-ACK information (O = 1).

This test is applied for QPSK 1/3 and 16QAM 3/4 modulation and coding schemes, with appropriate fixed reference channels for performance requirement applied as presented in table 8.2.3.5-1. Normal CP, 2 Rx antennas and ETU70 propagation conditions shall be used for this test.

A test for a specific channel bandwidth is only applicable if the BS supports it.

For a BS supporting multiple channel bandwidths only the tests for the lowest and the highest channel bandwidths supported by the BS are applicable.

8.2.3.2 Minimum Requirement

The minimum requirement is in TS 36.104 [2] subclause 8.2.4.1.

8.2.3.3 Test Purpose

The test shall verify the receiver’s ability to detect HARQ-ACK information multiplexed on PUSCH under multipath fading propagation conditions for a given SNR.

8.2.3.4 Method of test

8.2.3.4.1 Initial Conditions

Test environment: Normal, see subclause D.2.

RF channels to be tested: M; see subclause 4.7.

1) Connect the BS tester generating the wanted signal, multipath fading simulators and AWGN generators to all BS antenna connectors for diversity reception via a combining network as shown in Annex I.3.2.

8.2.3.4.2 Procedure

1) Adjust the AWGN generator, according to the channel bandwidth, defined in Table 8.2.3.4.2-1.

2) The characteristics of the wanted signal shall be configured according to the corresponding UL reference measurement channel defined in Annex A and details presented in chapter 8.2.3.1. For reference channels using 1 resource block the RB in the middle of the channel bandwidth should be used. In case the number of resource blocks in the channel bandwidth are even the one in the middle with lower number is to be used for testing.

3) The multipath fading emulators shall be configured according to ETU70 channel model defined in Annex B.2.

4) Adjust the equipment so that required SNR specified in Table 8.2.3.5-1 is achieved at the BS input during the ACK transmissions.

5) The signal generator sends a test pattern on one of RE’s where HARQ-ACK information can be multiplexed on PUSCH with the pattern outlined in figure 8.2.3.4.2-1. The following statistics are kept: the number of ACKs detected during data only transmissions and the number of missed ACKs during PUSCH with ACK transmission.

Figure 8.2.3.4.2-1: Test signal pattern for HARQ-ACK multiplexed on PUSCH demodulation tests

8.2.3.5 Test Requirement

The fraction of falsely detected ACKs measured according to subclause 8.2.3.4.2 shall be less than 1% and the fraction of correctly detected ACKs shall be larger than 99% for the SNR listed in table 8.2.3.5-1.

8.2.5 Performance requirements for PUSCH with TTI bundling and enhanced HARQ pattern

8.2.5.1 Definition and applicability

The performance requirement of PUSCH configured with TTI bundling and enhanced HARQ pattern, as specified in 36.213 [16] clause 8 and 8.0, is determined by residual block error probability (BLER) after HARQ retransmission. The performance is measured by the required SNR at residual BLER of 2% for the FRCs listed in Annex A.11. The residual BLER is defined as follows:

where:

A is the number of incorrectly decoded transport blocks after HARQ retransmission.

B is the number of transmitted transport blocks (retransmitted transport blocks are not counted repetitively).

The test is applicable for FDD. TTI bundling and enhanced HARQ pattern are enabled in the tests.

A test for a specific channel bandwidth is only applicable if the BS supports it.

For a BS supporting multiple channel bandwidths only the tests for the highest channel bandwidth supported by the BS are applicable.

8.2.5.2 Minimum Requirement

The minimum requirement is in TS 36.104 [2] subclause 8.2.5.1.

8.2.5.3 Test Purpose

The test shall verify the receiver’s ability to decode PUSCH configured with TTI bundling and enhanced HARQ pattern, under multipath fading propagation conditions for a given SNR.

8.2.5.4 Method of test

8.2.5.4.1 Initial Conditions

Test environment: Normal, see subclause D.2.

RF channels to be tested: M; see subclause 4.7.

8.2.6 Enhanced performance requirements type A of PUSCH in multipath fading propagation conditions with synchronous interference

8.2.6.1 Definition and applicability

The enhanced performance requirement type A of PUSCH is determined by a minimum required throughput for a given SINR. The required throughput is expressed as a fraction of maximum throughput for the FRCs listed in Annex A. The performance requirements assume HARQ retransmissions.

The purpose is to verify the demodulation performance when the wanted PUSCH signal in the serving cell is interfered by PUSCH of one or two dominant interferer(s) applying the interference model defined in clause B.6.2.

The requirements apply to the BS supporting the enhanced performance requirements type A.

The requirements apply to the BS receiving the synchronous interference i.e. the interference is time-synchronous with the tested signal.

A test for a specific channel bandwidth is only applicable if the BS supports it.

For a BS supporting FDD multiple channel bandwidths but not supporting FDD UL carrier aggregation, only the tests for the lowest and the highest FDD channel bandwidths supported by the BS are applicable. For a BS supporting TDD multiple channel bandwidths but not supporting TDD UL carrier aggregation, only the tests for the lowest and the highest TDD channel bandwidths supported by the BS are applicable.

For a BS supporting FDD UL carrier aggregation, only the FDD CC combination with largest aggregated bandwidth is used for the test. If there is more than one combination with the largest aggregated bandwidth, the FDD CC combination with the largest number of component carriers is used for the test. For this CC combination the tests using full PRB allocation FRC are conducted on per CC basis and measured by the required SINR levels corresponding to the bandwidths used on the different CCs.

For a BS supporting TDD UL carrier aggregation, only the TDD CC combination with largest aggregated bandwidth is used for the test. If there is more than one combination with the largest aggregated bandwidth, the TDD CC combination with the largest number of component carriers is used for the test. For this CC combination the tests using full PRB allocation FRC are conducted on per CC basis and measured by the required SINR levels corresponding to the bandwidths used on the different CCs.

8.2.6.2 Minimum Requirement

The minimum requirement is in TS 36.104 [2] subclause 8.2.6.1.

8.2.6.3 Test Purpose

The test shall verify the receiver’s ability to achieve throughput on the wanted signal at the presence of one or two dominant interferer(s) as specified in clause 8.2.6.4.2, under multipath fading propagation conditions for a given SINR.

The requirements apply to the BS receiving the asynchronous interference i.e. the interference is time-asynchronous with the tested signal.

A test for a specific channel bandwidth is only applicable if the BS supports it.

For a BS supporting FDD multiple channel bandwidths but not supporting FDD UL carrier aggregation, only the tests for the lowest and the highest FDD channel bandwidths supported by the BS are applicable. For a BS supporting TDD multiple channel bandwidths but not supporting TDD UL carrier aggregation, only the tests for the lowest and the highest TDD channel bandwidths supported by the BS are applicable.

For a BS supporting FDD UL carrier aggregation, only the FDD CC combination with largest aggregated bandwidth is used for the test. If there is more than one combination with the largest aggregated bandwidth, the FDD CC combination with the largest number of component carriers is used for the test. For this CC combination the tests using full PRB allocation FRC are conducted on per CC basis and measured by the required SINR levels corresponding to the bandwidths used on the different CCs.

For a BS supporting TDD UL carrier aggregation, only the TDD CC combination with largest aggregated bandwidth is used for the test. If there is more than one combination with the largest aggregated bandwidth, the TDD CC combination with the largest number of component carriers is used for the test. For this CC combination the tests using full PRB allocation FRC are conducted on per CC basis and measured by the required SINR levels corresponding to the bandwidths used on the different CCs.

8.2.9 Enhanced performance requirements type B of PUSCH in multipath fading propagation conditions

8.2.9.1 Definition and applicability

The enhanced performance requirement type B of PUSCH is determined by a minimum required throughput for a given SINR. The required throughput is expressed as a fraction of maximum sum throughput of all the co-scheduled intra-cell UEs for the FRCs listed in Annex A. The performance requirements assume HARQ retransmissions.

The purpose is to verify the demodulation performance when there are multiple co-scheduled intra-cell UEs in the serving cell and one inter-cell interfering UE in the negiboring cell. The PUSCH of all the intra-cell UEs are wanted signal for the BS.

The requirements apply to the BS supporting the enhanced performance requirements type B.

A test for a specific channel bandwidth is only applicable if the BS supports it.

For a BS supporting FDD multiple channel bandwidths but not supporting FDD UL carrier aggregation, only the tests for the lowest and the highest FDD channel bandwidths supported by the BS are applicable. For a BS supporting TDD multiple channel bandwidths but not supporting TDD UL carrier aggregation, only the tests for the lowest and the highest TDD channel bandwidths supported by the BS are applicable.

For a BS supporting FDD UL carrier aggregation, only the FDD CC combination with largest aggregated bandwidth is used for the test. If there is more than one combination with the largest aggregated bandwidth, the FDD CC combination with the largest number of component carriers is used for the test. For this CC combination the tests using the PRB allocation in FRC are conducted on per CC basis and measured by the required SINR levels corresponding to the bandwidths used on the different CCs.

For a BS supporting TDD UL carrier aggregation, only the TDD CC combination with largest aggregated bandwidth is used for the test. If there is more than one combination with the largest aggregated bandwidth, the TDD CC combination with the largest number of component carriers is used for the test. For this CC combination the tests using the PRB allocation in FRC are conducted on per CC basis and measured by the required SINR levels corresponding to the bandwidths used on the different CCs.

8.2.10 Performance requirements of PUSCH in multipath fading propagation conditions transmission on single antenna port for subPRB transmission

8.2.10.1 Definition and applicability

The performance requirement of PUSCH is determined by a minimum required throughput for a given SNR. The required throughput is expressed as a fraction of maximum throughput for the FRCs listed in Annex A. The performance requirements assume HARQ re-transmissions.

The tests for CEModeA defined in clause 8.2.10 are applicable only to the base stations supporting subPRB transmission under coverage enhancement configured with CEModeA. The tests for CEModeB defined in clause 8.2.10 are applicable only to the base stations supporting subPRB transmission under coverage enhancement configured with CEModeB.

A test for a specific channel bandwidth is only applicable if the BS supports it. For a BS supporting FDD multiple channel bandwidths, only the tests for the lowest and the highest FDD channel bandwidths supported by the BS are applicable. For a BS supporting TDD multiple channel bandwidths, only the tests for the lowest and the highest TDD channel bandwidths supported by the BS are applicable.

8.2.10.2 Minimum Requirement

The minimum requirement is in TS 36.104 [2] subclause 8.2.10.

8.2.10.3 Test Purpose

The test shall verify the receiver’s ability to achieve throughput under multipath fading propagation conditions for a given SNR.

8.2.10.4 Method of test

8.2.10.4.1 Initial Conditions

Test environment: Normal, see subclause D.2.

RF channels to be tested: M; see subclause 4.7.
