The definition of the Conformance Tests for UE in E-UTRAN will be a complex task as the complete test suite covers RF, EMC and Protocol aspects of the UE.

Each test requires a Test Environment to be defined in which the UE has to operate to defined standards, constraints and performance. The overall task can be simplified if there are a number of well defined and agreed Common Test Environments where every one can be used for a number of tests. Hence the present document defines testing conditions that are common to several tests avoiding the need to duplicate the same information for every single test.

The present document defines default values for a variety of common areas. Where values are not specified in test cases, the defaults in the present document will apply. If specified, the test case values will take precedence.
