LTE-M Frequency Bands | LTE-M Bands 2,3,4,5,8,12,13,20,28

This page covers LTE-M frequency bands which include LTE-M bands 2,3,4,5,8,12,13,20,28. The LTE-M bands are highlighted in bold in the table. The LTE-M Transceivers are developed in appropriate LTE-M frequency bands as per LTE-M deployment countries.

LTE Bands including LTE-M frequency bands

Following table-1 mentions LTE bands including LTE-M bands used along with FDD duplex topology. Uplink refers to signal from UE (i.e. LTE-M device) to eNB and downlink refers to signal from eNB to LTE-M device (i.e. UE). Refer LTE-M tutorial which describes basic features of LTE-M technology including its architecture, frame, stack, channels and so on.
