9.10.3.1 Received signal strength indicator measurement

Received signal strength indicator (RSSI) is the total power that UE observes across the entire system bandwidth. This includes the main signal and co-channel non-serving cell signal, adjacent channel interference, and the thermal noise within the specified frequency band. This is the power of the received signal prior to demodulation, thus the UE can measure this power without any synchronization and demodulation [6].
