Frequency band for 5G NR are being separated into two different frequency ranges. First there is Frequency Range 1 (FR1) that include sub-6GHz frequency bands. The other is Frequency Range 2 (FR2) that include frequency bands in the mmWave range.[1]

Frequency bands and channel bandwidths[edit]

Frequency Range 1[edit]

From 3GPP TS 38.101-1, the following table lists the specified frequency bands of the 5G NR standard and the channel bandwidths supported for the FR1[2] bands. Superseded bands are indicated by a grey background.
