5G Absolute Radio Frequency Channel Number (NR-ARFCN)

October 31, 2018

5G Absolute Radio Frequency Channel Number (NR-ARFCN) An Absolute Radio-Frequency Channel Number (ARFCN) is a code that specifies the a pair of reference frequencies used for transmission and reception in radio system. In a FDD system one ARFCN number is required for downlink and another for uplink  as downlink and uplink frequencies are different while for TDD system […]
