6B.1.1 General system architecture

Refer to 3GPP TS 36.523-3 [6], clause 4.1.1.

6B.1.2 Component architecture

The NR PTC is controlled by the TTCN-3 positioning master test component (POS MTC) which:

– Is an extension of the MTC as defined in 3GPP TS 38.523-3 [24], clause 4.2.

– Controls the SS Positioning Simulator.
