  • In the Narrowband Internet-of-Things (NB-IoT) LTE systems, the device shall be able to blindly lock to a cell within 200-KHz bandwidth and with only one receive antenna. In addition, the device is required to setup a call at a signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) of −12.6 dB in the extended coverage mode. A new set of synchronization signals have been introduced to provide data-aided synchronization and cell search. In this letter, we present a procedure for NB-IoT cell search and initial… CONTINUE READING
