IMT cellular networks - Harmonised Standard for access to radio spectrum - Part 18: E-UTRA, UTRA and GSM/EDGE Multi-Standard Radio (MSR) Base Station (BS) Release 15

The present document specifies technical characteristics and methods of measurements for the following equipment
types:
• Multi-Standard Radio capable Base stations (NR, E-UTRA, UTRA, GSM/EDGE, NB-IoT).
Operation of NR in combination with UTRA or GSM/EDGE is not supported.
These radio equipment types are capable of operating in all or any part of the frequency bands given in table 1-1.
NOTE 1: For BS capable of multi-band operation, the supported operating bands may belong to different Band
Categories.
The present document covers conducted requirements for multi-RAT capable NR, E-UTRA, UTRA and GSM/EDGE
MSR Base Stations for 3GPP™ Release 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14 and 15. This includes the requirements for MSR operating
bands from 3GPP Release 16.
NOTE 2: The relationship between the present document and essential requirements of article 3.2 of Directive
2014/53/EU [i.1] is given in annex A.
