5G Cell Phone Architecture

5G cell phones has to be designed to comply either 3GPP New Radio (NR) Release 15 and also need to support legacy radio access technologies . Intial, 5G cell phones […]

5G NR-Master Information Block (NR-MIB)

Over all structure of MIB and SIB in NR is almost similar to LTE and other legacy technologies. However there is a major difference related to the periodical transmission of […]

5G/4G ARFCN Calculator Android App

Few weeks back, we wrote a post about 5G New Radio ARFCN calculator. Below is the link for the same. 5G Absolute Radio Frequency Channel Number (NR-ARFCN) In this post […]

5G New Radio Throughput Calculation

The DL and UL max data rate supported by the UE is calculated by band combinations and baseband processing combinations supported by the UE. For NR, the approximate data rate […]

5G NR- Physical Layer Timing Unit

In 5 G New Radio the basic time unit is represented by Tc and as per 3GPP TS38.211 can be expression by following equation: Where is subcarrier spacing and is […]

NR-Secondary Synchronization Signal (SSS)

NR-Secondary Synchronization Signal: 5G-NR Secondary Synchronization Signal (SSS) is Physical Layer specific signal and help UE to get subframe boundary. It is similar to PSS, as it is also an […]

5G NR RRC State Transitions

5G NR is supposed to inter-work with the legacy technologies like LTE (E-UTRA), UMTS (UTRA) and GSM/GPRS (GERAN). New Radio has introduced a new RRC state called “RRC INACTIVE” to […]

Deployments Scenarios for 5G NR

NR is capable of working in Non-standalone as well as standalone deployments, the Phase 1 deployment is to be considered as Non-standalone deployments. In terms of cell layout, A 5G […]
