Title: Discussion on SRS frequency hopping in NR
Agenda Item: 7.2.3.8
Document for: Discussion and Decision
1 Introduction
In this contribution, we discuss in detail the SRS frequency hopping in NR. The other remaining details
on SRS design are discussed in [1]. Agreements from previous meetings to which we refer are contained
in the Appendix.
2 Discussion
In the LTE SRS configuration there is already support for SRS frequency hopping, both for periodic and
aperiodic SRS. Since hopping is a beneficial tool for sounding a desired part of the band for power
limited UEs, it should be supported in NR as well. What is different compared to LTE, however, is that an
SRS resource can occupy multiple symbols in the same slot in NR. Hence, this opens up the possibility
both for hopping within a slot and hopping between slots. We recall that the intra-slot hopping
corresponds to the hopping within a slot which is beneficial for reciprocity operation. Moreover, having
the ability to hop multiple symbols in the same slot means that a given bandwidth can be sounded faster
in NR than in LTE where hopping is constrained to be once per subframe.
In the previous meeting, it was agreed that NR should support both the intra-slot and inter-slot
frequency hopping within a BWP. More specifically, for N=2 or 4 (number of OFDM symbols within a
slot) and aperiodic SRS resource, it was agreed to support intra-slot hopping. For N symbol periodic SRS
resource, NR supports intra- and inter-slot hopping. In addition, repetition prior to hopping can be
configured with repetition factor r=1, 2 or 4 where the allowed values of r are r ≤N.
2.1 Combination of intra- and inter-slot hopping
In NR, the number of SRS symbols N per slot is agreed to be 1, 2 or 4. For periodic SRS transmission, if
N=1, then only inter-slot hopping is possible and the hopping is performed in the same way as in LTE.
For N=2 or N=4, we can have two possibilities. The first possibility is to have intra-slot hopping only: this
typically happens if the entire hopping bandwidth is sounded in up to N hops. The second possibility is
to have both intra-slot hopping and inter-slot: this happens when N hops are not sufficient to sound the
entire hopping bandwidth and several slots are needed to do that.
Let us consider an example of hopping patterns using the bandwidth tree in Table 1 with the hopping
bandwidth bhop=0 (the entire bandwidth of 48 PRBs is used for hopping). Let us first take an example
from LTE where the number of OFDM symbols per slot is fixed to be 1 and let BSRS=1, meaning that we
sound the bandwidth of 24 PRBs at each SRS transmission. In Figure 1, we observe that the full hopping
bandwidth is sounded within two slots. This case corresponds to the inter-slot hopping because the
hopping is performed across the slots.
2/7
Let us consider now an example corresponding to the NR configuration where N is allowed to be larger
than one and let it set to N=2. In Figure 2, we have BSRS=1 as above, sounding the bandwidth of 24 PRBs
at each SRS transmission. We observe that only one slot is sufficient to sound the full hopping
bandwidth and in this case we only have intra-slot hopping. In Figure 3, we have BSRS=2, meaning that
we sound now 12 PRBs at each SRS transmission and we see that we need two slots to be able to sound
the full hopping bandwidth. In this case, we start by intra-slot hopping within the slot and in the next
slot we continue hopping (which is now inter-slot hopping) to sound the full bandwidth. Note, that the
hopping patterns in Figure 2 and Figure 3 are obtained from the LTE framework and SRS transmission
counter should now depend on the symbol counter instead of the LTE slot counter.

Figure 3: Combination of intra- and inter-slot hopping with N=2, bhop=0, and BSRS=2.
Observation 1 For periodic/semi-persistent SRS, for N=2 or N=4, intra-slot SRS frequency hopping
can be performed by configuring bhop and BSRS in such that only one slot is sufficient
to sound the full hopping bandwidth.
Observation 2 For periodic/semi-persistent SRS, for N=2 or N=4, when bhop and BSRS are configured
such that one slot is not sufficient to sound the full hopping bandwidth, we get a
combination of intra- and inter-slot SRS frequency hopping.
Let us now provide the new formula for frequency hopping. Assuming that frequency hopping of the
sounding reference signal is enabled (i.e., SRS
hop B

2.2 Combination of intra- and inter-slot hopping with repetition
It was agreed to support repetition with hopping with repetition factor r=1, 2 or 4 such that the
repetition is prior to hopping. When r=1, this corresponds to the previously defined hopping framework.
When N=2 or 4, for intra- slot hopping, the repetition factor has to be configured such that the full
bandwidth is sounded in N/r hops. This is illustrated in Figure 4. For intra- and inter-slot hopping
combined with repetition, the repetition factor can be set to any value depending on how fast we would
like to sound the full hopping bandwidth. This is depicted in Figure 5 with repetition factor r=4 where
the full bandwidth is sounded in two slots.
Figure 4: Intra-slot hopping with repetition factor r=2.
Figure 5: Inter-slot hopping with repetition factor r=4.
We see that for smaller repetition factor, for example as in Figure 4 where r=2, if we want a fast wide-
band estimate, for example, for beam-selection or wide-band pre-coding, using intra-slot hopping is
better due to the better distribution over the carrier with resulting better diversity. On the other hand, if
we want detailed information about the carrier and want coherent processing we can use BSRS for inter-
slot hopping with repetition as depicted in Figure 5 that is needed for joint channel estimation etc.
5/7
Observation 3 For intra-slot hopping combined with repetition, the full hopping bandwidth has to
be sounded within one slot.
Observation 4 For intra- and inter-slot hopping combined with repetition, the full hopping
bandwidth can be sounded within several slots. Given a particular configuration of
bhop and BSRS, the repetition factor is chosen depending on how fast we would like
to sound the full bandwidth.
Taking into account the repetition, we have a new expression for Fb given by

2.3 Intra-slot hopping for aperiodic SRS
For an aperiodic SRS transmission, the full hopping bandwidth should be sounded within one slot. If
N=1, only one symbol is used to transmit SRS within the slot. For N=2 or N=4, it was agreed to support
intra-slot hopping for aperiodic SRS transmissions. Note that all N OFDM symbols are adjacent. When
only frequency hopping only is configured, BSRS is configure such that the full hopping bandwidth is
sounded in N OFDM symbols. For N = 4, when frequency hopping combined with repetition are
configured such that the full hopping bandwidth is sounded in two pairs of OFDM symbols. This scenario
is similar to the one depicted in Figure 5 but having only one slot for SRS triggered aperiodically.
Observation 5 For aperiodic SRS, for N=2 or N=4 and when hopping only is configured, BSRS is
configured to sound the full hopping bandwidth in N OFDM symbols.
Proposal 3 For aperiodic SRS, for N=4, when hopping with repetition is configured, the
repetition factor is set to 2, and the full hopping bandwidth is sounded in two pairs
of OFDM symbols.

5 Appendix – Agreements from previous meetings
Agreement:
NR supports intra-slot and inter-slot frequency hopping within a BWP.
 FFS: if the same hopping formula as in LTE can be used
 FFS: aperiodic/semi-persistent/periodic SRS for each hopping type (intra-/inter-slot)
 FFS: number of OFDM symbols per SRS resource for each hopping type (intra-/inter-slot)
 FFS: Whether independent ON/OFF configurations for intra-slot and inter-slot frequency hopping
for one SRS resource
7/7
Agreement:
 An X-port SRS resource spans N = 1, 2, or 4 adjacent OFDM symbols within the same slot where
all X ports are mapped to each symbol of the resource
– When frequency hopping only is configured, the X ports are mapped to potentially
different sets of subcarriers in each OFDM symbol of the resource, depending on the
hopping pattern
– For N = 4, frequency hopping + repetition can be configured where the X ports are
mapped to a different set of subcarriers in the second pair OFDM symbol(s) of the
resource
o Note: Symbol pairs are adjacent
– Note: same comb is assumed for different sets of subcarriers
– Note: hopping pattern is within the tree structure defined by a given C_SRS, B_SRS, and
b_hop
– Note: When repetition only is configured, the mapping is covered by previous agreement
in RAN1#90:
o “Each of the X ports are mapped to the same set of subcarriers in the same set of
PRBs in the N SRS symbols.”
– NCP SRS resource definition is reused for ECP
 FFS: SRS transmission repetition within a slot can be at different power levels to account for
relative phase discontinuities from multiple UE Tx chains

R1-1721385 Discussion on SRS frequency hopping in NR EMERSON EDUARDO RODRIGUES

  • 1. 1/7 3GPP TSG RAN WG1 Meeting 91 R1-1721385 Reno, USA, November 27th -December 1st , 2017 Source: Ericsson Title: Discussion on SRS frequency hopping in NR Agenda Item: 7.2.3.8 Document for: Discussion and Decision 1 Introduction In this contribution, we discuss in detail the SRS frequency hopping in NR. The other remaining details on SRS design are discussed in [1]. Agreements from previous meetings to which we refer are contained in the Appendix. 2 Discussion In the LTE SRS configuration there is already support for SRS frequency hopping, both for periodic and aperiodic SRS. Since hopping is a beneficial tool for sounding a desired part of the band for power limited UEs, it should be supported in NR as well. What is different compared to LTE, however, is that an SRS resource can occupy multiple symbols in the same slot in NR. Hence, this opens up the possibility both for hopping within a slot and hopping between slots. We recall that the intra-slot hopping corresponds to the hopping within a slot which is beneficial for reciprocity operation. Moreover, having the ability to hop multiple symbols in the same slot means that a given bandwidth can be sounded faster in NR than in LTE where hopping is constrained to be once per subframe. In the previous meeting, it was agreed that NR should support both the intra-slot and inter-slot frequency hopping within a BWP. More specifically, for N=2 or 4 (number of OFDM symbols within a slot) and aperiodic SRS resource, it was agreed to support intra-slot hopping. For N symbol periodic SRS resource, NR supports intra- and inter-slot hopping. In addition, repetition prior to hopping can be configured with repetition factor r=1, 2 or 4 where the allowed values of r are r ≤N. 2.1 Combination of intra- and inter-slot hopping In NR, the number of SRS symbols N per slot is agreed to be 1, 2 or 4. For periodic SRS transmission, if N=1, then only inter-slot hopping is possible and the hopping is performed in the same way as in LTE. For N=2 or N=4, we can have two possibilities. The first possibility is to have intra-slot hopping only: this typically happens if the entire hopping bandwidth is sounded in up to N hops. The second possibility is to have both intra-slot hopping and inter-slot: this happens when N hops are not sufficient to sound the entire hopping bandwidth and several slots are needed to do that. Let us consider an example of hopping patterns using the bandwidth tree in Table 1 with the hopping bandwidth bhop=0 (the entire bandwidth of 48 PRBs is used for hopping). Let us first take an example from LTE where the number of OFDM symbols per slot is fixed to be 1 and let BSRS=1, meaning that we sound the bandwidth of 24 PRBs at each SRS transmission. In Figure 1, we observe that the full hopping bandwidth is sounded within two slots. This case corresponds to the inter-slot hopping because the hopping is performed across the slots.
  • 2. 2/7 Let us consider now an example corresponding to the NR configuration where N is allowed to be larger than one and let it set to N=2. In Figure 2, we have BSRS=1 as above, sounding the bandwidth of 24 PRBs at each SRS transmission. We observe that only one slot is sufficient to sound the full hopping bandwidth and in this case we only have intra-slot hopping. In Figure 3, we have BSRS=2, meaning that we sound now 12 PRBs at each SRS transmission and we see that we need two slots to be able to sound the full hopping bandwidth. In this case, we start by intra-slot hopping within the slot and in the next slot we continue hopping (which is now inter-slot hopping) to sound the full bandwidth. Note, that the hopping patterns in Figure 2 and Figure 3 are obtained from the LTE framework and SRS transmission counter should now depend on the symbol counter instead of the LTE slot counter. B_SRS = 0 B_SRS = 1 B_SRS = 2 B_SRS = 3 C_SRS m_{SRS,0} N_0 m_{SRS,1} N_1 m_{SRS,2} N_2 m_{SRS,3} N_3 13 48 1 24 2 12 2 4 3 Table 1: Example entries of NR tree structure for SRS resource assignment. Figure 1: Inter-slot hopping with N=1, bhop=0, and BSRS=1: LTE case. Figure 2: Intra-slot hopping with N=2, bhop=0, and BSRS=1.
  • 3. 3/7 Figure 3: Combination of intra- and inter-slot hopping with N=2, bhop=0, and BSRS=2. Observation 1 For periodic/semi-persistent SRS, for N=2 or N=4, intra-slot SRS frequency hopping can be performed by configuring bhop and BSRS in such that only one slot is sufficient to sound the full hopping bandwidth. Observation 2 For periodic/semi-persistent SRS, for N=2 or N=4, when bhop and BSRS are configured such that one slot is not sufficient to sound the full hopping bandwidth, we get a combination of intra- and inter-slot SRS frequency hopping. Let us now provide the new formula for frequency hopping. Assuming that frequency hopping of the sounding reference signal is enabled (i.e., SRS hop B b  ), the frequency position indexes b n are defined by             otherwise mod 4 ) ( mod 4 SRS, RRC SRS hop SRS, RRC b b b b b b N m n n F b b N m n n where nsymb,f µ ∊{0, …, Nsymb slot x Nslot frame,µ -1} is the symbol number within a frame for subcarrier spacing µ with Nsymb slot is the number of symbols per slot, Nslot frame,µ is the number of slots per frame, and b N is given by Table 2 in Appendix, and                                          odd if / 2 / even if 2 mod mod ) 2 / ( ) ( ' 1 ' SRS ' 1 ' ' ' SRS ' 1 ' ' ' SRS SRS hop hop hop hop hop b b b b b b b b b b b b b b b b b b b b b b b b b N N n N N N N n N N n N n F where 1 hop  b N regardless of the b N value on Table 2 and the new symbol-based counter is given by SRS n =                        ) 1 ( SRS 1 0 , , f slot symb N n f symb frame slot slot symb N T n n N N n SRS symb    with SRS T is UE-specific periodicity of SRS transmission in slots, nf µ is the frame number for subcarrier spacing µ. Please note that the expression for the hopping formula is similar to the LTE one with a new symbol-based counter nSRS. Based on this we have now the following proposition:
  • 4. 4/7 Proposal 1 The hopping pattern should be obtained by generalization of the LTE network where SRS transmission counter should depend on the symbol counter instead the slot counter given by SRS n =                        ) 1 ( SRS 1 0 , , f slot symb N n f symb frame slot slot symb N T n n N N n SRS symb    . 2.2 Combination of intra- and inter-slot hopping with repetition It was agreed to support repetition with hopping with repetition factor r=1, 2 or 4 such that the repetition is prior to hopping. When r=1, this corresponds to the previously defined hopping framework. When N=2 or 4, for intra- slot hopping, the repetition factor has to be configured such that the full bandwidth is sounded in N/r hops. This is illustrated in Figure 4. For intra- and inter-slot hopping combined with repetition, the repetition factor can be set to any value depending on how fast we would like to sound the full hopping bandwidth. This is depicted in Figure 5 with repetition factor r=4 where the full bandwidth is sounded in two slots. Figure 4: Intra-slot hopping with repetition factor r=2. Figure 5: Inter-slot hopping with repetition factor r=4. We see that for smaller repetition factor, for example as in Figure 4 where r=2, if we want a fast wide- band estimate, for example, for beam-selection or wide-band pre-coding, using intra-slot hopping is better due to the better distribution over the carrier with resulting better diversity. On the other hand, if we want detailed information about the carrier and want coherent processing we can use BSRS for inter- slot hopping with repetition as depicted in Figure 5 that is needed for joint channel estimation etc.
  • 5. 5/7 Observation 3 For intra-slot hopping combined with repetition, the full hopping bandwidth has to be sounded within one slot. Observation 4 For intra- and inter-slot hopping combined with repetition, the full hopping bandwidth can be sounded within several slots. Given a particular configuration of bhop and BSRS, the repetition factor is chosen depending on how fast we would like to sound the full bandwidth. Taking into account the repetition, we have a new expression for Fb given by                                              odd if / 2 / even if 2 mod / mod / ) 2 / ( ) ( ' 1 ' SRS ' 1 ' ' ' SRS ' 1 ' ' ' SRS SRS hop hop hop hop hop b b b b b b b b b b b b b b b b b b b b b b b b b N N n N N N N r n N N r n N n F where nSRS is defined as previously. Note that the difference with the version without repetition is that we have now   r nSRS / as a counter instead of SRS n . Base on this we have the following proposition: Proposal 2 For intra-slot hopping combined with repetition, the repetition factor r and BSRS are set such that the full hopping bandwidth is sounded in N/r hops with Fb defined by                                              odd if / 2 / even if 2 mod / mod / ) 2 / ( ) ( ' 1 ' SRS ' 1 ' ' ' SRS ' 1 ' ' ' SRS SRS hop hop hop hop hop b b b b b b b b b b b b b b b b b b b b b b b b b N N n N N N N r n N N r n N n F 2.3 Intra-slot hopping for aperiodic SRS For an aperiodic SRS transmission, the full hopping bandwidth should be sounded within one slot. If N=1, only one symbol is used to transmit SRS within the slot. For N=2 or N=4, it was agreed to support intra-slot hopping for aperiodic SRS transmissions. Note that all N OFDM symbols are adjacent. When only frequency hopping only is configured, BSRS is configure such that the full hopping bandwidth is sounded in N OFDM symbols. For N = 4, when frequency hopping combined with repetition are configured such that the full hopping bandwidth is sounded in two pairs of OFDM symbols. This scenario is similar to the one depicted in Figure 5 but having only one slot for SRS triggered aperiodically. Observation 5 For aperiodic SRS, for N=2 or N=4 and when hopping only is configured, BSRS is configured to sound the full hopping bandwidth in N OFDM symbols. Proposal 3 For aperiodic SRS, for N=4, when hopping with repetition is configured, the repetition factor is set to 2, and the full hopping bandwidth is sounded in two pairs of OFDM symbols. 3 Conclusions We make the following proposals:

  • 7. 7/7 Agreement:  An X-port SRS resource spans N = 1, 2, or 4 adjacent OFDM symbols within the same slot where all X ports are mapped to each symbol of the resource – When frequency hopping only is configured, the X ports are mapped to potentially different sets of subcarriers in each OFDM symbol of the resource, depending on the hopping pattern – For N = 4, frequency hopping + repetition can be configured where the X ports are mapped to a different set of subcarriers in the second pair OFDM symbol(s) of the resource o Note: Symbol pairs are adjacent – Note: same comb is assumed for different sets of subcarriers – Note: hopping pattern is within the tree structure defined by a given C_SRS, B_SRS, and b_hop – Note: When repetition only is configured, the mapping is covered by previous agreement in RAN1#90: o “Each of the X ports are mapped to the same set of subcarriers in the same set of PRBs in the N SRS symbols.” – NCP SRS resource definition is reused for ECP  FFS: SRS transmission repetition within a slot can be at different power levels to account for relative phase discontinuities from multiple UE Tx chains
