System Information Block1

5G NR System Information Block1

SIB1 contains information relevant when evaluating if a UE is allowed to access a cell and defines the scheduling of other system information. It also contains radio resource configuration information that is common for all UEs and barring information applied to the unified access control.

Signalling radio bearer: N/A
RLC-SAP: TM
Logical channels: BCCH
Direction: Network to UE

SIB 1 Contains information about other SI available in the cell, information relevant for the UE to evaluate whether it may access the cell and part of the information required to perform RRC IDLE mode mobility procedures, in particular:

  • SIB1 known as minimum system information, because they provide the basic parameter set required for initial access .
  • Acquire Other System information block
  • SIB 1 known as Remaining minim system
  • list of supported PLMNs and additional PLMN related information (e.g. NR cell global identities (NR-CGIs), Tracking Area Codes (TAC), RAN area codes
  • basic radio configuration of the cell which is common to all UEs in the cell, e.g.downlink and uplink common channels configuration and SSB configuration
  • Perodicity for SIB1 is 160 ms with repetition within 160 ms
  • Its uses PDSCH

SchedulingInfo field descriptions

areaScope

Indicates that a SIB is area specific. If the field is absent, the SIB is cell specific.

si-BroadcastStatus

Indicates if the SI message is being broadcasted or not. Change of si-BroadcastStatus should not result in system information change notifications in Short Message transmitted with P-RNTI over DCI (see clause 6.5). The value of the indication is valid until the end of the BCCH modification period when set to broadcasting.

si-Periodicity

Periodicity of the SI-message in radio frames. Value rf8 corresponds to 8 radio frames, value rf16 corresponds to 16 radio frames, and so on.

SI-RequestConfig field descriptions

Configuration of dedicated RACH Occasions for SI. If the field is absent, the UE uses the corresponding parameters configured in rach-ConfigCommon of the initial uplink BWP.

si-RequestPeriod

Periodicity of the SI-Request configuration in number of association periods.

si-RequestResources

If there is only one entry in the list, the configuration is used for all SI messages for which si-BroadcastStatus is set to notBroadcasting. Otherwise the 1st entry in the list corresponds to the first SI message in schedulingInfoList for which si-BroadcastStatus is set to notBroadcasting, 2nd entry in the list corresponds to the second SI message in schedulingInfoList for which si-BroadcastStatus is set to notBroadcasting and so on. Change of si-RequestResources should not result in system information change notification.

ra-PreambleStartIndex

If N SSBs are associated with a RACH occasion, where N > = 1, for the i-th SSB (i=0, …, N-1) the preamble with preamble index = ra-PreambleStartIndex + i is used for SI request; For N < 1, the preamble with preamble index = ra-PreambleStartIndex is used for SI request.

If pagingSearchSpace is set to zero and if SS/PBCH block and CORESET multiplexing pattern is 2 or 3 (as specified in TS 38.213 [13]):

A list of additional common search spaces. If the network configures this field, it uses the SearchSpaceIds other than 0. If the field is included, it replaces any previous list, i.e. all the entries of the list are replaced and each of the SearchSpace entries is considered to be newly created and the conditions and Need codes for setup of the entry apply.

controlResourceSetZero

Parameters of the common CORESET#0 which can be used in any common or UE-specific search spaces. The values are interpreted like the corresponding bits in MIB pdcch-ConfigSIB1. Even though this field is only configured in the initial BWP (BWP#0) controlResourceSetZero can be used in search spaces configured in other DL BWP(s) than the initial DL BWP if the conditions defined in TS 38.213 [13], clause 10 are satisfied.

firstPDCCH-MonitoringOccasionOfPO

Indicates the first PDCCH monitoring occasion of each PO of the PF on this BWP, see TS 38.304 [20].

pagingSearchSpace

ID of the Search space for paging (see TS 38.213 [13], clause 10.1). If the field is absent, the UE does not receive paging in this BWP (see TS 38.213 [13], clause 10).

ra-SearchSpace

ID of the Search space for random access procedure (see TS 38.213 [13], clause 10.1). If the field is absent, the UE does not receive RAR in this BWP. This field is mandatory present in the DL BWP(s) if the conditions described in TS 38.321 [3], subclause 5.15 are met.

searchSpaceOtherSystemInformation

ID of the Search space for other system information, i.e., SIB2 and beyond (see TS 38.213 [13], clause 10.1) If the field is absent, the UE does not receive other system information in this BWP.

searchSpaceSIB1

ID of the search space for SIB1 message. In the initial DL BWP of the UE′s PCell, the network sets this field to 0. If the field is absent, the UE does not receive SIB1 in this BWP. (see TS 38.213 [13], clause 10)

searchSpaceZero

Parameters of the common SearchSpace#0. The values are interpreted like the corresponding bits in MIB pdcch-ConfigSIB1. Even though this field is only configured in the initial BWP (BWP#0), searchSpaceZero can be used in search spaces configured in other DL BWP(s) than the initial DL BWP if the conditions described in TS 38.213 [13], clause 10, are satisfied.

FrequencyInfoUL-SIB field descriptions

absoluteFrequencyPointA

Absolute frequency of the reference resource block (Common RB 0). Its lowest subcarrier is also known as Point A. Note that the lower edge of the actual carrier is not defined by this field but rather in the scs-SpecificCarrierList (see TS 38.211 [16], clause 4.4.4.2).

frequencyBandList

Provides the frequency band indicator and a list of additionalPmax and additionalSpectrumEmission values as defined in TS 38.101-1 [15], table 6.2.3.1-1, and TS 38.101-2 [39], table 6.2.3.1-2. The UE shall apply the first listed band which it supports in the frequencyBandList field.

frequencyShift7p5khz

Enable the NR UL transmission with a 7.5 kHz shift to the LTE raster. If the field is absent, the frequency shift is disabled.

p-Max

Value in dBm applicable for the cell. If absent the UE applies the maximum power according to TS 38.101-1 [15].

scs-SpecificCarrierList

A set of carriers for different subcarrier spacings (numerologies). Defined in relation to Point A (see TS 38.211 [16], clause 5.3). The network configures this for all SCSs that are used in UL BWPs configured in this serving cell.

Conditional Presence

Explanation

FDD-OrSUL

The field is mandatory present if this FrequencyInfoUL-SIB is for the paired UL for a DL (defined in a FrequencyInfoDL-SIB) or if this FrequencyInfoUL-SIB is for a supplementary uplink (SUL). It is absent otherwise (if this FrequencyInfoUL-SIB is for an unpaired UL (TDD).

FDD-TDD-OrSUL-Optional

The field is optionally present, Need R, if this FrequencyInfoUL-SIB is for the paired UL for a DL (defined in a FrequencyInfoDL-SIB), or if this FrequencyInfoUL-SIB is for an unpaired UL (TDD) in certain bands (as defined in clause 5.4.2.1 of TS 38.101-1 and in clause 5.4.2.1 of TS 38.104 [12]), or if this FrequencyInfoUL-SIB is for a supplementary uplink (SUL). It is absent otherwise.

BWP-UplinkCommon

The IE BWP-UplinkCommon is used to configure the common parameters of an uplink BWP. They are “cell specific” and the network ensures the necessary alignment with corresponding parameters of other UEs. The common parameters of the initial bandwidth part of the PCell are also provided via system information. For all other serving cells, the network provides the common parameters via dedicated signalling.

BWP-UplinkCommon field descriptions

pucch-ConfigCommon

Cell specific parameters for the PUCCH of this BWP.

pusch-ConfigCommon

Cell specific parameters for the PUSCH of this BWP.

rach-ConfigCommon

Configuration of cell specific random access parameters which the UE uses for contention based and contention free random access as well as for contention based beam failure recovery in this BWP. The NW configures SSB-based RA (and hence RACH-ConfigCommon) only for UL BWPs if the linked DL BWPs (same bwp-Id as UL-BWP) are the initial DL BWPs or DL BWPs containing the SSB associated to the initial DL BWP. The network configures rach-ConfigCommon, whenever it configures contention free random access (for reconfiguration with sync or for beam failure recovery).
