New Radio frequencies

New Radio operates in the frequency range between 700 MHz and 70 GHz. To enable 5G New Radio to transmit signals and data in all applications that need to bridge further distances, operate in close range or in reception-critical environments, or are used for extremely high data rates in the multi- gigabit range, the entire frequency range between 700 MHz and 70 GHz has been divided into three frequency bands: Into the low bands in the sub-GHz range below 1 GHz, the mid bands between 1 GHz and 6 GHz, and the high bands from 24 GHz.

The frequency range and bandwidths of 5G New Radio differ considerably from Long Term Evolution( LTE). There are several license-required and license-free frequency ranges in the aforementioned frequency bands, which may differ slightly in the various countries. The frequency range used is around 700 MHz, in which 2x30 MHz is available in Germany. The frequency range between 3.4 GHz and 3.8 GHz and the 26 GHz range are also used. Furthermore, frequencies between 37 GHz and 40 GHz and 64 GHz and 71 GHz can be used for New Radio in various countries.

As for bandwidth, it is up to 20 MHz at 700 MHz, with subcarriers having a subcarrier spacing( SCS) of 15 kHz. At frequencies between 3 GHz and 5 GHz, the bandwidth is 100 MHz and the subcarrier spacing is 30 kHz; at 6 GHz, the values are 160 MHz and 60 kHz; and at 28 GHz, they are 400 MHz and 120 kHz.
