1 1 Public Safety Communications Research Department of Commerce – Boulder Labs PSCR Update Dr. Rob Stafford Project Engineer – NTIA/ITS PS Broadband Project

2 2 Outline PSCR Testing – Phase 1 – Application Testing – Interference Into eNodeB – Sector Characterization Test The Move to 10 MHz – C-Block/D-Block Interference – PSNB Interference – Other Issues What’s Next

3 3 Public Safety Communications Research Program Located at the Department of Commerce Boulder Labs in Colorado The PSCR Program is a joint effort between: NIST’s Office of Law Enforcement Standards (OLES) and NTIA’s Institute for Telecommunication Sciences (ITS)

4 4 PSCR Sponsors Department of Homeland Security Office for Interoperability and Compatibility Department of Justice Office of Community Oriented Policing Services

20 20 eNodeB Transmitter Testing We use a test waveform (E-TM1.1, E-TM1.2) if possible, or a 64 QAM modulated waveform if test waveforms are unavailable We test in-band channel power, out-of-band power (edge frequency +/- 10 MHz), and spurious emissions (> 10 MHz offset) Tests use 100 kHZ measurement bandwidth Co-existence and Co-location specifications

23 23 In-Band/Out-of-Band Emissions

24 24 In-Band Failure

25 25 Sector Characterization Test This test is designed to determine the throughput at near, mid, and cell edge locations. The near, mid and cell edge locations will be determined at the 10 th, 50 th and 95 th percentiles of the CDF of the SNR. This test will be conducted between a loaded and unloaded, single sector of an eNB and a nomadic UE in the presence of co- channel interference.
