36.521-13GPPEvolved Universal Terrestrial Radio Access (E-UTRA)Part 1: Conformance testingRadio transmission and receptionRelease 17TSUser Equipment (UE) conformance specification

The carrier frequency in the uplink and downlink is designated by the E-UTRA Absolute Radio Frequency Channel Number (EARFCN) in the range 0 – 65535. The relation between EARFCN and the carrier frequency in MHz for the downlink is given by the following equation, where FDL_low and NOffs-DL are given in Table 5.4.4-1 and NDL is the downlink EARFCN.

FDL = FDL_low + 0.1(NDL – NOffs-DL)

The relation between EARFCN and the carrier frequency in MHz for the uplink is given by the following equation where FUL_low and NOffs-UL are given in Table 5.4.4-1 and NUL is the uplink EARFCN.

FUL = FUL_low + 0.1(NUL – NOffs-UL)

This implies that the first 7, 15, 25, 50, 75 and 100 channel numbers at the lower operating band edge and the last 6, 14, 24, 49, 74 and 99 channel numbers at the upper operating band edge shall not be used for channel bandwidths of 1.4, 3, 5, 10, 15 and 20 MHz respectively. Note 2: Restricted to E-UTRA operation when carrier aggregation is configured. Note 3: For ProSe and V2X the corresponding UL channel number are also specified for the DL for the associated ProSe/V2X operating bands i.e. ProSe_FUL = FUL and ProSe_FDL = FUL; V2X_FUL = FDL and V2X_FDL = FUL. Note 4: Requirements for uplink operations are not specified in this version of the specification. 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.
