UARFCN

UMTS Absolute radio-frequency channel number


UMTS
Universal Mobile Telecommunication System

The UARFCN (UTRA Absolute Radio Frequency Channel Number) is the channel number representing the full 5
MHz UMTS carrier. Only 3.84MHz is used for transmission, while the 116 kHz acts as a built-in guard-band to
adjacent UARFCN's (580kHz + 3840kHz + 580kHz = 5MHz). If an operator owns the adjacent frequency bands,
it is possible to reduce the size of the UMTS carrier from 5MHz to 4.4 or 4.2 MHZ, but this is not recommended.
The UARFCN channel number is calculated according to it's frequency. If no offset is used, the frequency is
simply multiplied by 5 to get the UARFCN (ex: 2132.8 MHZ * 5 = UARFCN 10664) If an offset is used the offset
must be first subtracted from the frequency.

TDD

Example 1 : band 3, downlink frequency 1842.6 MHz


NDL = 5(FDL - FDL_Offset)
NDL = 5(1842.6 1575) = 1338

FDL = FDL_Offset + (NDL)/5


FDL = 1575 + 1338/5 = 1842.6 MHz

Example 2 : band 8, uplink frequency 942.6 MHz


NUL = 5(FUL - FUL_Offset)
NUL = 5(942.6 340) = 3013

FUL = FUL_Offset + (NUL)/5


FUL = 340 + 3013/5 = 942.6 MHz

Example 3 : UARFCN additional = 1987, band 4


FDL = (NDL)/5 + FDL_Offset
FDL = 1987/5 + 1735.1 = 2132.5 MHz
