Reference signal received power (RSRP) identifies the signal level of the Reference Signal. It is defined as the linear average over the power contributions of the resource elements that carry cell-specific reference signals within the considered measurement frequency bandwidth.

Design KPI for RSRP:

10MHz Channel Bandwidth (700MHz & AWS): -113dBm

5MHz Channel Bandwidth (700MHz & AWS): -113 dBm

A minimum of 95% of the weighted average of the LTE design service area Cluster or Polygon must meet the RSRP targets specified above. The criterion of 95% is based on a weighting using the same clutter weights used for traffic spreading. The target specified above is after taking into consideration the indoor loss values assigned per clutter type In-building losses enabled.

The targets for AWS are only applicable in cases where the AWS design is being carried out as a standalone design and not be used as an isolated hotspot capacity layer over an existing 700 MHz layer LTE network.
