5.5 Operating bands

36.1413GPPBase Station (BS) conformance testingEvolved Universal Terrestrial Radio Access (E-UTRA)Release 17TS

E-UTRA is designed to operate in the operating bands defined in Table 5.5-1. Unless stated otherwise, requirements specified for the TDD duplex mode apply for downlink and uplink operations in Frame Structure Type 2.

NB-IoT is designed to operate in the E-UTRA operating bands 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 11, 12, 13, 14, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 24, 25, 26, 28, 31, 41 (in certain regions), 42, 43, 65, 66, 70, 71, 72, 73, 74, 85, 87, 88 which are defined in Table 5.5-1.

NOTE 1: Band 6, 23 are not applicable.

NOTE 2: Restricted to E-UTRA operation when carrier aggregation is configured. The downlink operating band is paired with the uplink operating band (external) of the carrier aggregation configuration that is supporting the configured Pcell.

NOTE 3: This band is an unlicensed band restricted to licensed-assisted operation using Frame Structure Type 3.

NOTE 4: Band 46 is divided into four sub-bands as in Table 5.5-1A.

NOTE 5: The range 2180 – 2200 MHz of the DL operating band is restricted to E-UTRA operation when carrier aggregation is configured.

NOTE 6: The range 2010-2020 MHz of the DL operating band is restricted to E-UTRA operation when carrier aggregation is configured and TX-RX separation is 300 MHz. The range 2005-2020 MHz of the DL operating band is restricted to E-UTRA operation when carrier aggregation is configured and TX-RX separation is 295 MHz.

NOTE 7: Void

NOTE 8: This band is restricted to licensed-assisted operation using Frame Structure Type 3.

NOTE 9: DL operation is restricted to 1526-1536 MHz frequency range. UL operation is restricted to 1627.5 – 1637.5 MHz and 1646.5 – 1656.5 MHz per FCC Order DA 20-48.
