1. Overall Description:
In order to verify E-UTRAN-WLAN measurement reporting delay, RAN4 has agreed two test cases: one for E-UTRAN FDD-WLAN interworking case another one for E-UTRAN TDD-WLAN interworking case .
These tests will be introduced in 3GPP TS 36.133, Rel-13. The corresponding conformance tests will be defined by RAN5 in their conformance test specifications.
Another set of test cases to define WLAN RSSI measurement accuracy tests were presented for approval in . But due to lack of consensus in RAN4, these tests cases were not agreed. However RAN4
recommends that WLAN RSSI accuracy tests are defined in at least IEEE 802.11 specifications.
RAN4 therefore requests IEEE 802.11 WG and WIFI Alliance to specify WLAN RSSI measurement accuracy test cases in their specifications.
To IEEE 802.11 and WiFi Alliance:
ACTION: RAN4 kindly requests IEEE 802.11 WG and WIFI Alliance to specify WLAN RSSI measurement accuracy test cases in their specifications.
