Carrier Aggregation


The detailed mechanism of Carrier Aggregation in 5G/NR is not specified yet (as of Sep 2017), but I think overall mechanism will be similar to LTE Carrier Aggregation. However at least followings has been determined :

  • Carrier Aggregation is specified from the first specification of NR (i.e, Release 15)
  • Maximum number of Secondary Componnent Carrier in addition to Primary Carrier is 15 (38.211 - 4.5)
