App Card: 5G NR – interference hunting in the uplink of TDD networks

May 2019

The communications uplink is more susceptible to interference than the downlink. In FDD networks, it is easy to concentrate on the frequency range allocated to the uplink and identify and locate the source of interference. In TDD networks, the downlink and the uplink use the same frequency, meaning that downlink signals mask the uplink and any other present signals.
