A.2 Requirement classification for statistical testing

25.1723GPPRelease 17Requirements for support of Assisted Galileo and Additional Navigation Satellite Systems (A-GANSS) Frequency Division Duplex (FDD)TS

Requirements in the present document are either expressed as absolute requirements with a single value stating the requirement, or expressed as a success rate. There are no provisions for the statistical variations that will occur when the parameter is tested.

Annex B lists the test parameters needed for the tests. The test will result in an outcome of a test variable value for the DUT inside or outside the test limit. Overall, the probability of a "good" DUT being inside the test limit(s) and the probability of a "bad" DUT being outside the test limit(s) should be as high as possible. For this reason, when selecting the test variable and the test limit(s), the statistical nature of the test is accounted for.

When testing a parameter with a statistical nature, a confidence level has to be set. The confidence level establishes the probability that a DUT passing the test actually meets the requirement and determines how many times a test has to be repeated. The confidence levels are defined for the final tests in 3GPP TS 34.172 [12].
