Channel bandwidth for category NB1/NB2 is 200 kHz.

For category NB1/NB2, requirements in present document are specified for the channel bandwidth listed in Table 5.4.2F-1.

Figure 5.4.2F-1 shows the relation between the category NB1/NB2 channel bandwidth (BWChannel) and the category NB1/NB2 transmission bandwidth configuration (Ntone). The channel edges are defined as the lowest and highest frequencies of the carrier separated by the channel bandwidth, i.e. at FC +/- BWChannel /2.
