5.1 General

NR MIMO OTA Requirements are defined separately for different frequency ranges (FR). The frequency ranges in which NR can operate according to this version of the specification are identified as described in Table 5.1-1.

Table 5.1-1: Definition of frequency ranges

Frequency range designation

Corresponding frequency range

FR1

410 MHz – 7125 MHz

FR2

24250 MHz – 52600 MHz

The present specification covers both FR1 and FR2 operating bands.

5.2 Operating bands

NR is designed to operate in FR1 operating bands defined in TS 38.101-1 [3] and FR2 operating bands defined in TS 38.101-2 [4]. NSA band combinations are defined in TS 38.101-3 [5]. E-UTRA is designed to operate in operating bands defined in TS 36.101 [6].
