6C NR/5GC test models requiring GNSS support

37.571-43GPPPart 4: Test suitesRelease 16TSUser Equipment (UE) conformance specification for UE positioning

The NR sidelink test model specified in TS 38.523-3 [24] clause requires the presence of a GNSS emulation.

The positioning simulator shall be capable of generating and broadcasting the following GNSS: GPS, Galileo, GLONASS and BDS.

The ASPs at POS Port for NR sidelink are used to:

– Load a pre-defined test scenario into the positioning simulator.

– Start or stop generating and broadcasting satellite signals from the positioning simulator.

– Trigger the positioning simulator to move in the test scenario to the next geographical area or zone.

– Trigger the positioning simulator to switch on/off the transmitter without stopping the UTC time sequence.

– Retrieve the current UTC time of the GNSS scenario.
