How many beams can be formed in one NR site?

How many beams can be formed in one NR site?
How many UE can latch in one beam at that time?
Both wide band for initial access or narrow band for data.

SSB beams are:

  • 4 for f < 3GHz
  • 8 for 3GHZ < f < 6 Ghz
  • 64 for f > 6 GHz.

Thanks.
And how many UE can latch in that beam at that time? (NSA)

I don’t remember to be a limit for it.
But probably there is some sw/hw limitation vendor based.

Are these beams 3D beams or horizontal and vertical beams?

It depends on AAU type N1 and N2.

So SSb beam 4 for example means in type N1 four horizontal and four vertical for f less than 3 GHz?

No, it means 4 SSB to cover the whole cell footprint.
Or 8SSB.
Or 64 SSB.

Be it horizontal or vertical. Got it, thanks!

Those are static beams.
For PDSCH there are dynamic beams based on N1 and N2.
