A.184.108.40.206 Interruptions during measurements on deactivated NR SCC in FR2
A.220.127.116.11.1 Test Purpose and Environment
The purpose of this test is to verify that the UE missed ACK/NACK rate does not exceed the limits at NR PSCell interruptions during the measurement on the deactivated NR SCC. This test will verify the missed ACK/NACK rate for PCell in standalone NR specified in clause 18.104.22.168. Supported test configurations are shown in table A.22.214.171.124.1-1.
The general test parameters and NR cell specific test parameters are given in Table A.126.96.36.199.1-2 and A.188.8.131.52.1-3 below. In the test there are two cells: Cell1 and Cell2. Cell1 is PCell, Cell2 is an NR deactivated SCell. Cell1 shall be configured as PCell and Cell2 shall be configured as SCell.
The test consists of one time period, with duration of T1. Prior to the start of the time duration T1, the UE is connected to Cell1 and Cell2. The point in time at which the RRC message including measCycleSCell or allowInterruptions for the deactivated NR SCells is received at the UE antenna connector, defines the start of time period T1. During T1, PCell is continuously scheduled in DL.

A.126.96.36.199.2 Test Requirements
The UE shall be continuously scheduled on PCell during the entire length of T1. During the time duration T1 the UE shall transmit at least 99.5% of ACK/NACK on PCell. The UE is only allowed to cause interruptions immediately before and immediately after an SMTC. Each interruption on PCell shall not exceed the value defined in Table A.188.8.131.52.2-1 if the PCell is not in the same band as the deactivated SCell or Table A.184.108.40.206.2-2 if the PCell is in the same band as the deactivated SCell.
