What Are 5G mmWave Bands?


The ITU proposed several globally bands in mmWave spectrum as below: 

  • 24.25–27.5 GHz;
  • 37–40.5 GHz;
  • 42.5–43.5 GHz;
  • 45.5–47 GHz;
  • 47.2–50.2 GHz;
  • 50.4–52.6 GHz;
  • 66–76 GHz;
  • 81–86 GHz.

Frequency bands within the scope of the present Release 15 work in 3GPP are for this reason divided into two frequency ranges

  • Frequency range 1 (FR1) includes all existing and new bands below 6 GHz.
  • Frequency range 2 (FR2) includes new bands in the range 24.25–52.6 GHz.

So Far, 5G mmWave frequency bands as below:
