New Radio Access RF and Transceiver Design Considerations

Abstract

The NR RF characteristics are closely related to the frequency bands in which the 5G systems will be deployed. Due to wide range of the target frequency bands, spectrum flexibility was required in order to operate in diverse spectrum allocations. Such spectrum flexibility is manifested as the possibility of deployment and resource allocations in frequency bands of different sizes over an extremely wide range of contiguous or non-contiguous spectrum, both in the form of paired and unpaired frequency bands along with aggregation of different spectrum blocks within and across different bands. The NR has the capability to operate with mixed OFDM numerologies over the same ...
