channel bandwidth: RF bandwidth supporting a single E-UTRA RF carrier with the transmission bandwidth

configured in the uplink or downlink of a cell

NOTE: The channel bandwidth is measured in MHz and is used as a reference for transmitter and receiver RF

requirements.

channel edge: lowest and highest frequency of the E-UTRA carrier, separated by the channel bandwidth

donor coupling loss: coupling loss between the repeater and the donor Base Station

downlink: signal path where Base Station transmits and mobile receives
downlink operating band: part of the operating band designated for downlink

nominal passband edge: lowest and highest frequency of the pass band of the repeater

operating band: frequency range that is defined with a specific set of technical requirements, in which E-UTRA FDD

operates

NOTE: The operating band(s) for an E-UTRA Repeater is declared by the manufacturer according to the

designations in clause 1, table 1-1. Operating bands for UTRA are designated with Roman numerals,

while the corresponding operating bands for E-UTRA are designated with Arabic numerals. Unless

specified, operating band refers to the uplink operating band and downlink operating band.

output power, Pout: mean power of one carrier at maximum repeater gain delivered to a load with resistance equal to

the nominal load impedance of the transmitter

pass band: frequency range that the repeater operates in with operational configuration

NOTE: This frequency range can correspond to one or several consecutive channels. If they are not consecutive

each subset of channels is considered as an individual pass band. The Repeater can have one or several

pass bands.

rated output power: rated output power of the repeater is the mean power level per carrier that the manufacturer has

declared to be available at the antenna connector
repeater: devic
