A.3 UE Measurement Procedures

37.1713GPPRelease 16TSUniversal Terrestrial Radio Access (UTRA) and Evolved UTRA (E-UTRA)User Equipment (UE) performance requirements for RAT-Independent positioning enhancements

A.3.1 MBS Measurement reporting delay test case

A.3.1.1 Test Purpose and Environment

The purpose of the test is to verify that the MBS measurements meet the measurement time requirements specified in clause 4.2.3 in an environment with fading propagation conditions (EPA 5 Hz). This test can be used for NR, UTRA, and E-UTRA testing.

In this test case there is one beacon transmitted in one beacon slots in the MBS beacon transmission period (see Figure 4.2.3-1). The position of the beacon in the beacon transmission period is static for the duration of the test. In other slots there are no simulated beacons. The beacon has centre frequency of 925.977 MHz or set using the network assistance data in Release 14. The beacon has transmitted signal strength of -30 dBm. The beacon is transmitted with code phase (delay) of 1.6678×10-4ms, corresponding to 50 m.

The UE shall perform and report the MBS measurements for the beacon within 12000 ms, starting from the receipt of the location request.

NOTE: The MBS measurement time in the test is derived from the following expression: ms, where n=1, is one second, T MBS_TP is one second and TProc is one second.

The beacon is of type TB1 (2 MHz) specified in clause 9 of the MBS ICD [7] and the data transmitted is in Type 2 packets specified in clause 9.6.3 of the MBS ICD [7] with the following data fields: The MBS Transmitter ID and the Slot Index shall be set to the MBS slot number; All other beacon payload data shall be populated with zeros [7].

The beacon shall use a PN code chosen from the PN code list for TB1 [7].

If the UE supports MBS assistance data, the UE will receive the MBS assistance data for each beacon via LPP, according to Annex A.

A.3.2 WLAN Access Point Identification and Reporting Delay

A.3.2.2 LTE-FDD: WLAN AP Identification and reporting delay under nominal conditions test

A.3.2.2.1 Test purpose and Environment

The purpose of this test is to verify the requirements in Clause 7.3 for WLAN AP measurements. The UE shall send wlan-MeasurementInformation IE including WLAN measurements for each AP indicating at least wlan-AP-Identifier (BSSID) and rssi (if reporting of RSSI is supported by the UE as indicated by the UE in the LPP PROVIDE CAPABILITIES message).

In this test, there are cell1 (E-UTRAN FDD) and 6 WLAN APs transmitting beacon signals at least every 102.4 ms. There is an active LTE connection between the SS and the UE and the measurements are performed in RRC_CONNECTED state. The beacon signals from different APs shall be received at different time slots or in non-overlapping frequency channels. Non-overlapping frequency channels shall be at least 25 MHz apart in the WLAN 2.4 GHz band and at least 20 MHz apart in the WLAN 5 GHz band. The APs are transmitting in 3 non-overlapping frequency channels in the same WLAN Frequency Band. There are 2 APs in every channel. The test consists of two successive time periods, with duration of T1 and T2, respectively. WLAN-RequestLocationInformation message shall be provided to the UE during T1. WLAN Access Points only transmit signal during T2.

Propagation Condition

AWGN

Antenna Configuration

1×2

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 other cells and 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 Noc1 to be fulfilled.

Note 3: Interference from other cells and noise sources not specified in the test is assumed to be constant over the bandwidth and time and shall be modelled as AWGN of appropriate power for Noc2 to be fulfilled.

Note 4: Es/Iot, RSRP, SCH_RP, Io and Bluetooth RSSI have been derived from other parameters for information purposes. They are not settable parameters themselves.

Note 5: The resources for uplink transmission are assigned to the UE prior to the start of time period T2.

A.3.3.1.2 Test Requirements

The UE shall send BT-ProvideLocationInformation, with a measurement reporting delay less than 10.24s from the beginning of time period T2.

The rate of correct events observed during repeated tests shall be at least 90% for each of the events.

NOTE: The actual overall delays measured in the tests may be up to 2×TTIDCCH higher than the measurement reporting delays above because of TTI insertion uncertainty of the measurement report in DCCH.

A.3.3.2 E-UTRAN TDD Bluetooth identification

A.3.3.2.1 Test Purpose and Environment

The purpose of this test is to verify that the UE correctly identify and report Bluetooth Low Energy devices within the requirements stated in clause 4.4.

The test parameters are given in Tables A.3.3.2.1-1 and A.3.3.2.1-2 below. In the tests there are cell1 (E-UTRAN FDD) and 6 Bluetooth low energy (BLE) devices. The test consists of two successive time periods, with duration of T1 and T2, respectively. BT-RequestLocationInformation message shall be provided to the UE during T1. BLE devices only transmit signal during T2.
