CONTENTS

The course describes the physical layer design of NR in terms of OFDM numerologies, radio frames, subframes and slot configurations. The course explains the purpose of, and processing of, physical channels with particular focus on control channels. Reference signals for data demodulation, CSI measurements, and sounding are explained. Layer 1 procedures for synchronization, random access, scheduling, HARQ, measurements and beam management are described.

An overview of the NR RRC and MAC protocols is included in chapter 1 for completeness, with particular focus on the role of the RRC and MAC protocols in relation to layer 1.

PREREQUISITES

Reasonably good technical knowledge of the LTE physical layer and the LTE radio protocols is highly recommended but not compulsory.

Note: this course is not delivered with the FoldOut methodology.
