Frequency bands for 5G NR NTN

This Page provides information about frequency bands for 5G NR NTN. Information based on 3GPP TR 38.741 Release 17/18 specification.

You can filtering information about frequency bands NTN, for your convenience.

3GPP Release 17 introduced two bands for 5G NTN:

L-band n255 (1626.5-1660.5 / 1525-1559 MHz) and S-band n256 (1980-2010 / 2170-2200 MHz).

Currently, several frequency ranges are being discussed within 3GPP for NTN. We found unconfirmed 3GPP information about the frequency rangen n253 (1668–1675 MHz/1518–1525 MHz), n254 (1610-1626.5/2483.5-2500 Mhz), n510 (17.7-20.2 GHz/27.5-28.35 GHz), n511 (17.7-20.2 GHz/28.35-30.0 GHz), n512 (17.7-20.2 GHz/27.5-30.0 GHz), n23 (2000– 2020 MHz/2180– 2200 MHz)

5MHz, 10MHz and [15 MHz, 20 MHz] channel bandwidths are specified for the bands. The 15 MHz and 20 MHz channel bandwidths may need further technical discussions within 3GPP

The frequency ranges in which NR NTN can operate are identified as described in table
