5G NR GSCN (SSB FREQUENCY) Calculator

This Page provides information about 5G NR GSCN (Global Synchronization Channel Number) Calculator. Calculator is based on 3GPP TS 38.104 Release 15 specification.

It will help you to convert the number of the 5G NR GSCN (Global Synchronization Channel Number) to the 5G NR SSref (SSB) frequency and back (5G NR SSref frequency to 5G NR GSCN)

Example: 5G NR GSCN = 7725, 5G SSref Frequency = 3325.44 MHz

The formula for 5G NR GSCN is described in 3GPP TS 38.104 chapter 5.4.3

NOTE: The default value for operating bands which only support SCS spaced channel raster(s) is M=3.
