TTF (Testing Task Force) T008:
Radio conformance test specifications for DECT-2020 NR

Who we are:

What we do

DECT-2020 New radio (NR) is a new radio interface under development at TC DECT intended for short/mid range license exempt operation. DECT-2020 NR is based on Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplex (OFDM), incorporating space diversity (Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO)) and has been submitted to ITU-R as an IMT-2020 candidate technology.

The objective of TTF008 is the production of the radio test specification (deliverable D1) and the Harmonized EN (deliverable D2) for DECT-2020 New Radio interface (NR).

For more details, see our Terms of Reference

Why we do it

In order to place products in the market under this schema, the production of a detailed radio test specification and the Harmonized standard (EN) under RED directive for DECT-2020 are compulsory.

The radio test specification and the Harmonized standard (EN) under RED directive are complex new specifications that should be designed specifically for the new technology and should also pay attention to aspects of coexistence in the same band with existing DECT devices.

How we do it

TTF008 works together with the TC DECT in order to develop the required deliverables with continuous and frequent interaction. TTF008 leader participates in all TC DECT meetings and, in addition to that, organizes TTF008 own dedicated meetings that are open to all ETSI members. The TC DECT e-mail list is used for communication of relevant TTF information and meeting invitations.


The Testing Task Force will produce 2 deliverables:
