ECC Decision Harmonised technical conditions for UAS “Aerial UE” usage in respective harmonised MFCN bands
PT1_18
PT1_45
On the basis of conclusions of ECC Report 309 and additional relevant studies relating to AAS systems in the 1800 MHz,2 GHz and 2.6 GHz bands, to develop harmonised technical conditions for UAS “Aerial UE” usages
S: 06-03-2020
T: 04-11-2022

Harmonised spectrum regulatory conditions for “aerial UEs” in the suitable MFCN bands ensure visibility for UAs standardisation, market development while ensuring confidence of all spectrum users,

This ECC framework will be also the relevant basis to trigger additional standardisation activities in ETSI on “out of band emission limits”, where appropriate and to enable practical implementation of “no fly zone”, at national level where needed.

ECC Recommendation Guidelines to support the introduction of 5G while ensuring, in a proportionate way, the use of FSS receiving earth stations in the frequency band 40.5-42.5 GHz and the use of FSS transmitting earth stations in the frequency band 42.5-43.5GHz and the possibility for future deployment of these earth stations.

To develop guidelines/technical toolkits in order to assist administration to define how existing, planned and future earth stations can continue to operate or have the opportunity to be installed without significant impact on 5G deployment. This will address transmitting earth stations in the frequency band 42.5-43.5GHz and receiving earth stations in the frequency band 40.5-42.5GHz, for GSO and non-GSO satellite systems.

T: 04-11-2022

FSS Toolkit 40 GHz – Those guidelines /toolkits will address, as appropriate, methodology of calculations of coordination zones /contours. Also other elements such as examples of national approaches for clutter losses and deployment of FSS earth stations could be developed.

An ECC Recommendation with two separate Parts: FSS transmitting earth stations in 42.5-43.5GHz and receiving earth stations in 40.5-42.5GHz with relevant guidelines, toolkit and other elements as appropriate.

ECC Report Compatibility between MFCN operating in 3400-3800 MHz and Radio Altimeters (RA) operating in 4200-4400 MHz
FM_56
PT1_47

Assessment of susceptibility of deployed RA receivers operating in 4200-4400 MHz, while taking into account any civil aviation initiatives on improving RA receivers, in order to study the following compatibility scenarios:

1)    Unwanted emissions from MFCN operating in 3400-3800 MHz into 4200-4400 MHz radio altimeters band

2)    Impact of blocking of radio altimeters from 3400-3800 MHz MFCN in-band emissions

Note: the results of this study could trigger further actions as appropriate from ECC or other entities.

Provide relevant long term MFCN operational parameters in 3.4-3.8 GHz for the development of future MOPs by RTCA/EUROCAE for resilient radio altimeters. 
S: 05-03-2021
T: 07-07-2023

It is recognised that realistic scenarios and parameters for RA and MFCN AAS parameters are needed before compatibility studies can be commenced.

Based on the results of the study, consider the need for possible future steps, e.g. improvement of RA susceptibility to interference, in particular regarding blocking characteristics.

It is to be noted that radio altimeters are used globally and once installed they are used over many years. Therefore, development of future MOPS(Minimum Operational Performance Standards) for RA should be forward-looking as well as considering the various 5G MFCN deployments already existing in frequency bands both below 4.2 GHz as well as above 4.4 GHz, in both Europe and globally.

ECC Report

Coverage availability and performance aspects for 5G-NR 

Develop a summary of potential metrics that can be used for measuring 5G coverage (availability of 5G services) and user experience (performance) considering 5G-NR using AAS and non-AAS:

1) Describe various aspects of 5G-NR in the different frequency ranges designated for MFCN, including beamforming of control and data channels to highlight differences with earlier generations of mobile technologies also including 5G-NR within MFCN network using DSS (dynamic spectrum sharing)

2) Describe practical options for defining coverage requirements by collecting data both via network management tool and in the field considering available measurement solutions and identifying the pros and cons of the different options.

3) Describe potential performance management metrics and counters, and identifying options to provide meaningful user experience information.
S: 05-03-2021
T: 01-07-2022

ECC Report 231 summarises various methods used by administrations to determine coverage obligations in force and how they are controlled/assessed. The report highlights the need to develop practical field measurement methods for LTE.

Meanwhile, 5G-NR implementing AAS have added more flexibility to the air interface along with beamforming. These aspects need to be taken into account when considering conventional methods to set coverage requirements or reporting on 5G coverage and performance for 5G-NR,especially in the context of AAS systems in the different frequency ranges designated to MFCN.

Since different countries are licensing spectrum in the low, mid-and mmWave bands, it is essential to consider these technological differences while setting coverage and performance requirements or meaningful information for consumers and end users.

* Target dates are seen as the intended date for the final approval of the related deliverable by the responsible entity. Internal deadlines for project teams and dates for the start of Public Consultations can be reflected in the remarks column. In general this implies that the draft deliverable should be completed by the project team one WG meeting earlier for publication.
