9.3 Peak L1 throughput


Peak L1 throughput values confirm Flexi System Module as compliant with 3GPP
Release 8. Refer to the tables below for the maximum Transport Block Sizes, which can
be set for 2x2MIMO (dual-stream transmission) with all available frequency resources.

3GPP Release 8 specifies QPSK, 16QAM and 64QAM for PUSCH. In RL30/RL25TD
there is no support for 64QAM transmission however it is possible to extend MCS range
for 16QAM from MCS index 20 to 24. Flexi Rel.2 and Rel.3 are fully capable of handling
the largest possible Transport Blocks. It means that the HW architecture (processing
power of DSP boards) does not limit peak data rates.

9.4 Supported cell range


Maximum cell range is physically limited by supported RA preamble formats which are
listed below.
