What is the maximum 5G BW?

5G NR brings new spectrum opportunities that allow the operating bands to extend up to 52.6 GHz in Release 15. Considering different testing methods to verify the Radio Frequency (RF) and Radio Resource Management (RRM) requirements in a different frequency range, i.e., Over the Air (OTA) testing or conductive testing, two frequency ranges are categorized, i.e., Frequency Range 1 (FR1) 410 MHz–7.125 GHz and Frequency Range 2 (FR2) 24.25 GHz–52.6 GHz.

5G NR maximum carrier bandwidth is up to 100 MHz in the frequency range 1 or up to 400 MHz in the frequency range 2  that can be aggregated with a maximum bandwidth of 800 MHz.
