ETSI - TR 126 931

Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS); LTE; Evaluation of Additional Acoustic Tests for Speech Telephony

active, Most Current
Organization: ETSI
Publication Date: 1 September 2020
Status: active
Page Count: 56
scope:

The scope of the present document is to investigate, first and foremost, the existing items presently designated as "for further study" in TS 26.131 [13] and TS 26.132 [8].

The investigation will additionally identify, examine and evaluate opportunities for new acoustic tests and requirements that better help characterize the UE acoustic experience, opportunities to replace existing test methods with others that are more accurate or more efficient and to make specific recommendations for their inclusion in existing or new specifications.

While many advances were made in Release 11 to the acoustic requirements and test specifications in TS 26.131 [13] and TS 26.132 [8] many items therein were left marked "for further study" and require a final disposition by SA4 including:

- NB & WB Stability loss, Headset UE (TS 26.131 [13], subclauses 5.6 & 6.6).

- NB & WB Delay, Wireless Headset (TS 26.131 [13], subclauses 5.12.2.2 & 6.11.2.2).

- NB & WB Echo control ("double-talk") characteristics (TS 26.131 [13], subclauses 5.13 & 6.12, TS 26.132 [8], subclause 8.11).

- Handset, Headset, Handheld hands-free, Desktop and vehicle mounted hands-free are all marked FFS.

- NB& WB Free-field measurements for vehicle-mounted hands-free (TS 26.132 [8], subclauses 7.2.3 & 8.2.3).

- NB & WB Idle Channel Noise, Sending/Receiving of test signal (TS 26.132 [8], subclauses 7.3.1, 7.3.2, 8.3.1 & 8.3.2).

Additionally, there are new acoustic requirements and emerging tests that may be considered in a future release, but require further study before incorporation to our specifications. It has been anticipated that topics in this area would include, but would not be limited to, an evaluation of:

- Time-variant user behaviour.

- Additional UE usage environments.

- New or refined test methods for existing requirements.

- Acceptance of updates (if any) to existing ETSI and ITU-T dependencies.
