The asymptotic behaviour of Linear Spectral Statistics (LSS) of the smoothed periodogram estimator of the spectral coherency matrix of a complex Gaussian high-dimensional time series with independent components is studied under the asymptotic regime where the sample size N converges towards while the dimension M of y and the smoothing span of the estimator grow to infinity at the same rate in such a way that . It is established that, at each frequency, the estimated spectral coherency matrix is close to the sample covariance matrix of an independent identically distributed sequence, and that its empirical eigenvalue distribution converges towards the Marcenko-Pastur distribution. This allows to conclude that each LSS has a deterministic behaviour that can be evaluated explicitly. Using concentration inequalities, it is shown that the order of magnitude of the supremum over the frequencies of the deviation of each LSS from its deterministic approximation is of the order of where N is the sample size. Numerical simulations supports our results.
