Brazil Issues Additional Requirements for Mobile Cell Phones

National telecommunication agency of Brazil ANATEL published Act № 10003 on November 29, 2021. The Act updates Act №3152 on technical requirements for conformity assessment procedure for mobile cell phones. ANATEL specifies additional requirements to the mobile cell phones that have hardware capable of receiving signals from the sound broadcasting service in modulated frequency (FM). It means that the applicant of such equipment should provide the declaration that proves the ability of the mobile phone to receive signals from the sound broadcasting service in modulated frequency (FM) within the conformity assessment procedure.

Additionally, ANATEL specifies the following new requirements and test methods applicable to 5G NR technology:

1. Frequency range 1 non-standalone intra-band non-contiguous SMP:

  • EU Maximum Output Power reduction for Intra-Band Non-Contiguous EN-DC
  • General spurious emissions for Intra-band non-contiguous EN-DC

 
2. Frequency range 1 non-standalone inter-band SMP:

  • Adjacent channel leakage ratio for inter-band EN-DC within FR1

3. Frequency range 2 standalone and SMP (test methods according to ETSI TS 138 521-2 V16.6.0 (2021-02)):

  • UE maximum output power
  • Configured transmitted power
  • Minimum output power
  • General ON/OFF time mask
  • Frequency Error
  • Error Vector Magnitude
  • Carrier leakage
  • In-band emissions
  • Occupied bandwidth
  • Spectrum emission mask
  • Adjacent channel leakage ratio
  • Transmitter Spurious emissions
  • Spurious emissions

4. Frequency range 2 standalone inter-band SMP (test methods according to ETSI TS 138 521-3 V16.6.0 (2021-01)):

  • UE Maximum Output Power for Inter-Band EN-DC including FR2
  • Configured Output Power for Inter-Band EN-DC including FR2
  • EU Minimum Output Power for EN-DC Inter-band EN-DC including FR2
  • Frequency Error for inter-band EN-DC including  FR2
  • Occupied bandwidth for Inter-Band EN-DC including FR2 (2 CCs)
  • Spectrum emissions mask for Inter-band EN-DC including FR2 (2 CCs)
  • Adjacent channel leakage ratio for Inter-band EN-DC including FR2 (2 CCs)
  • General Spurious Emissions for Inter-band including FR2 (2 CCs)


Please, note that if the standard tests are not intended for the “LTE anchor agnostic”, it is possible to use approach with anchoring in 3 (three) LTE bands (lower frequency band, intermediate frequency band and higher frequency band), performing the combination of the 3 LTE bands with all the NR 5G bands.


Furthermore, ANATEL updates the following standards for application: 

  • ETSI TS 138 521-1 V16.6.0 (2021-02) - 5G; NR; User Equipment (UE) conformance specification; Radio transmission and reception; Part 1: Range 1 standalone (3GPP TS 38.521-1 version 16.6.0 Release 16)
  • ETSI TS 138 521-3 V16.6.0 (2021-01) - 5G; NR; User Equipment (UE) conformance specification; Radio transmission and reception; Part 3: Range 1 and Range 2 Interworking operation with other radios (3GPP TS 38.521-3 version 16.6.0 Release 16).


The also add the following standard: 

  • ETSI TS 138 521-2 V16.6.0 (2021-02) - 5G; NR; User Equipment (UE) conformance specification; Radio transmission and reception; Part 2: Range 2 standalone (3GPP TS 38.521-2 version 16.6.0 Release 16).


ANATEL notes that if previously approved terminals are going to be put to the market of Brazil with the new combinations of 4G and 5G dual connectivity (EN-DC combinations) according to the new versions of above-mentioned standards, it is necessary to submit new test reports to ANATEL within 6 months from the publication date of the Act.
