Hello, Humans of NR.
I’ve observed that for NSA scenarios some vendors use absoluteFrequencySSB which don’t meet the GSCN criteria. Example for n78 629988 and n28 155456.
Question 1: Is there any advantage of not using GSCN when on NSA?
I understand that for NSA we use absoluteFrequencySSB which indicates the direct ARFCN thus not properly needing to be GSCN, while using GSCN on SA is key part of the cell search procedure.
Question 2: how would the UE behave if at SA the carrier is configured with a SSB location not-GSCN? Have you ever performed tests under such scenario?
