Recommended Minimum Performance Standards for cdma2000 High Rate Packet Data Access Terminal
|Publication Date:||1 April 2014|
This Standard details definitions, methods of measurement, and minimum performance characteristics for access terminals. This Standard shares the purpose of  by ensuring that an access terminal can obtain service in any system that meets the compatibility requirements of .
Compatibility, as used in connection with this Standard and , is understood to mean that any access terminal is able to open data connections in any HRPD system. Conversely, all HRPD systems are able to open connections with any access terminal.
Test methods are recommended in this document; however, methods other than those recommended may suffice for the same purpose.
The performance metrics in this Standard require an access terminal to provide a single antenna connector for testing. Access terminals having multiple antenna, such as for receive diversity, shall provide a single antenna connector for testing. If an access terminal has more than one antenna connector, only one connector shall be used for testing. Additional requirements specifically for multiple antenna configurations, i.e. receive diversity, are for future study.
"Shall" and "shall not" identify requirements to be followed strictly to conform to this document and from which no deviation is permitted. "Should" and "should not" indicate that one of several possibilities is recommended as particularly suitable, without mentioning or excluding others, that a certain course of action is preferred but not necessarily required, or that (in the negative form) a certain possibility or course of action is discouraged but not prohibited. "May" and "need not" indicate a course of action permissible within the limits of the document. "Can" and "cannot" are used for statements of possibility and capability, whether material, physical or causal.
