Primary Synchronization Signal (PSS)
- occupies 144 Resource Elements per frame (20 timeslots); i.e. (62 subcarriers + 10 empty Resource Elements)
x 2 times/frame
Example: Normal CP, 10 MHz bandwidth; PSS overhead = 144 / (84 20 50) = 0.17 %
Secondary Synchronization Signal (SSS)
Identical calculation to PSS; same overhead as for PSS

## Reference Signal (RS)

- If 1 Tx antenna*: 4 RSs per PRB
- If 2 Tx antenna*: there are 8 RSs per PRB
- If 4 Tx antenna*: there are 12 RSs per PRB
Example below: Normal CP (84 RE) & 2 Tx antenna*, DL RS overhead = 8 / 84 = 9.52 %

## - Transmission of PRS reduces the available resource elements for DL traffic

Between less than 0.1% up to 2% depending on configuration
With default configuration

## - FDD - (PRS BW / SysBW)* #of DL frames/ repetition * PRS TTI repetition

Eg for FDD 20 MHz
100/100 * 1 * 1/160 = 0.625 %

## Note: OTDOA = Observed Time Difference of Arrival

PDCCH, PCFICH and PHICH
-The combination of PDCCH, PCFICH and PHICH is able to occupy the first 1, 2 or 3 time domain
symbols per TTI
-As of RL30, the PDCCH Area defined in the PCFICH becomes dynamic
-Worst case scenario PDCCH Area is 3 Symbols wide
- The number of RE occupied per 1 ms TTI is given by (12 y x), where:
y depends upon the number of occupied time domain symbols per TTI (1, 2 or 3)
x depends upon the number of RE already occupied by the Reference Signal
x = 2 for 1 transmit antenna
20 MHz = 100 RB
x = 4 for 2 transmit antenna
4 Antenna 8 DRS in PDCCH Area
x = 4 for 4 transmit antenna
PCFICH = 3 Symbols
when y = 1 Dual Stream
x = 8 for 4 transmit antenna 16.67% Overhead
when y = 2 or 3

12
Occupies (288* x) Resource Elements (REs) per 20 timeslots per transmit antenna
The value of x depends upon the number of REs already occupied by the Reference Signal:
x = 12 for 1 Tx antenna, x = 24 for 2 Tx antennas & x = 48 for 4 Tx antenna
- Example: normal CP, 2 Tx antennas, 10 MHz bandwidth;
PBCH Overhead = (288 24) / (84 20 50) = 0.31%

72 subcarriers

## 13 PBCH * PBCH uses central 72 Subcarrier over 4 OFDM symbols in Slot 1

UL Demodulation Reference Signal Overhead (1/2)

## Demodulation Reference Signal

(DRS)
- The DRS is sent on the 4th OFDM
symbol of each RB occupied by the
PUSCH.

## UL DRS occupies the whole PUCCH

allocated band except 2 RB
bandwidth in the both end.
Reference signal: 12 RE PUSCH
(per RB) x (50-2) RBs not
dedicated to PUCCH /(84 PUCCH
x50) =13.14%

14

Example:
For 1.4 MHz Channel Bandwidth, the PUCCH occupies 1 RB per Slot.
The number of RE per RB is 84 when using the normal CP.
This means the DRS overhead* is: ((6-1) 12)/(6 84) = 11.9 %

## Channel BW PUCCH RB/slot DRS Overhead*

1.4 MHz 1 ((6-1) 12) / (6 84) = 11.9 %
3 MHz 2 ((15-2) 12) / (15 84) = 12.38 %
5 MHz 2 ((25-2) 12) / (25 84) = 13.14 %
10 MHz 4 ((50-4) 12) / (50 84) = 13.14 %
15 MHz 6 ((75-6) 12) / (75 84) = 13.14 %
20 MHz 8 ((100-8) 12) / (100 84) = 13.14 %

* for normal CP

PRACH
- PRACH uses 6 Resource Blocks in the frequency domain.
- The location of those resource blocks is dynamic. Two parameters from RRC layer define it:
PRACH Configuration Index: for Timing, selecting between 1 of 4 PRACH durations and defining if
PRACH preambles can be send in any radio frame or only in even numbered ones
PRACH Frequency offset: Defines the location in frequency domain
- PRACH Overhead calculation: 6 RBs * RACH Density / (#RB per TTI) x 10 TTIs per frame
RACH density: how often are RACH resources reserved per 10 ms frame i.e. for RACH density: 1
(RACH resource reserved once per frame)
1.4 MHz (6 1) / (6 10) = 10 %
3 MHz (6 1) / (15 10) = 4 %
5 MHz (6 1) / (25 10) = 2.40 %
10 MHz (6 1) / (50 10) = 1.20 %
15 MHz (6 1) / (75 10) = 0.8 %
20 MHz (6 1) / (100 10) = 0.6 %

PUCCH
- Ratio between the number of RBs used for PUCCH and the total number of RBs
in frequency domain per TTI
Channel BW PUCCH RB/slot PUCCH Overhead
1.4 MHz 1 1 / 6 = 16.67 %
