3GPP Evolution for MIMO

Released 3GPP standards on MIMO are shown in below image. As you know, Coordinated Multipoint (CoMP) is a type of Cooperative MIMO, in which data and channel state information (CSI) are […]

5G NR Transport Block Size (TBS) Calculation

Transport Block  in 5G NR, is nothing but the payload which is passed between the MAC and Phy Layers, specifically for the shared data channel such as PDSCH and PUSCH. […]

5G NR RACH Procedure Overview – CBRA & CFRA

When we want to connect a UE to 5G network, it has to synchronize in downlink as well as in uplink. Downlink synchronization is obtained after successfully decoding SSB, In […]

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 RSRP Measurement Report Mapping

In 5G NR, RSRP measurement is performed and reported at Layer 1 (Physical Layer) and Layer 3 (RRC Layer). For example,  5G capable device can provide SS-RSRP measurements at Layer […]
