Recommended Minimum Performance Standards for Simultaneous cdma2000 1x and cdma2000 HRPD Access Terminal
|Publication Date:||1 September 2014|
This Standard details definitions, methods of measurement, and minimum performance characteristics for CDMA-HRPD-capable access terminals. An CDMA-HRPD-capable access terminal shall satisfy the requirements of this document in addition to satisfying those in  and . A single-band CDMA-HRPD (SB-CDMA-HRPD) access terminal shall pass all SB-CDMA-HRPD MPS tests in this document. A dual-band CDMA-HRPD (DB CDMA-HRPD) access terminal that also supports SB-CDMA-HRPD shall pass the SB CDMA-HRPD MPS tests in each individual band class in addition to passing the DB CDMA-HRPD MPS tests in this document. The purpose of this standard is to ensure that an CDMA-HRPD-capable access terminal can obtain service in any system that meets the compatibility requirements of  and .
Compatibility, as used in connection with this Standard and  and , is understood to mean that any CDMA-HRPD-capable access terminal is able to simultaneously open data connections in any HRPD system and place and receive calls in any CDMA system. Conversely, all HRPD systems are able to open connections and all CDMA systems are able to place and receive calls simultaneously with any CDMA-HRPD-capable 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.
