5G NR – Msg2 Random Access Response (RAR) – SA Mode

In 5G NR,  the initial access include down-link synchronisation and up-link synchronisation procedures. Downlink synchronisation can be achieved after decoding Minimum System Information (SSB-MIB) and Remaining System Inforatmion (RMSI- SIB […]

5G NR User Plane Latency

The definition of user plane latency as per 3GPP TR 38.913, is  “the time to successfully deliver an application layer packet/message from the radio protocol L2/L3 SDU entering point to […]

5G NR Control Plane Latency

The latency performance of a communication system is analyzed for both control plane and user plane. In this post lets discuss about control plane latency. The definition of control plane […]

5G NR BWP Types and BWP Operations

In 5G New Radio the cell bandwidth is expected to be large compared to LTE, but a UE’s receive and transmit bandwidth is not necessarily required to be same as […]

5G NR Bandwidth Part (BWP)

A Bandwidth Part (BWP) is a contiguous set of physical resource blocks (PRBs) on a given carrier. These RBs are  selected from a contiguous subset of the common resource blocks […]
