As 5G approaches, it will unleash the limitless possibilities and enable more exciting services and applications in our society. Therefore, GTI together with multiple operators and industry partners jointly releases the“2.3GHz Band Industry Statement”.


Content of the Statement:


With the large-scale commercial launch of 5G networks, TDD spectrum can effectively meet network capacity requirements and greatly improve user experience. With the low frequency band, large bandwidth and independent networking capabilities, the 2.3GHz is already the most widely deployed TDD 4G/LTE frequency band for mobile network operators. It will become the key resource for 5G/NR and the core mid-band spectrum of TDD. Therefore, GTI proposes to:


1. Accelerate the allocation of TDD 2.3GHz spectrum (2300-2400 MHz) with TDD continuous large bandwidth up to 100 MHz, reduce the deployment cost per bit, and improve user experience across generations. 


2. Remove possible barriers of the use of 2.3GHz. The industry is urged to work together to solve the problem of network coexistence and improve spectrum availability.


3. Promote the devices industry chain to make mandatory the support of NR 2.3GHz frequency in 2022, and better support key features such as EN-DC, carrier aggregation, SUL, 1T4R/2T4R SRS Antenna Switching and 80~100 MHz channel bandwidth.


4. Promote efficient use of TDD 2.3GHz spectrum and accelerate commercial launch by global operators. 


About GTI


GTI is an international platform of industry cooperation. It was kicked off in 2011 by China Mobile, SoftBank, Vodafone and a few of other operators. After ten years of joint efforts, GTI has developed 141 operators and 250 vendors. In 2016, GTI 2.0 was officially launched, aiming to further promote 4G evolution, 5G development and cross-industry innovation.
