Master Information Block (MIB) in LTE


The very first step for UE to gain initial access to the network after completing initial cell synchronization is to read the Master information block (MIB) on BCCH (Logical channel), BCH (Transport channel) and PBCH (Physical channel). Resource elements used by MIB are the first 4 OFDMA symbols of second slot of first subframe of a radio frame. On frequency domain it occupies 72 subcarriers. MIB carries very little but most important information for UE initial access. The content of MIB includes

·         Downlink channel bandwidth in term of resource blocks (RBs)
·         PHICH configuration (PHICH duration and PHICH resource)
·         System Frame Number

New MIB is broadcasted every radio frame for which SFN mod 4 = 0 (40ms repetition) while its copies are broadcasted in the middle 10ms radio frames as shown in the figure below



Why PHICH is carried by MIB? 
After decoding MIB, UE has to decode PDCCH to read other system information blocks (SIBs).  PDCCH, PHICH and PCFICH share the resources in the control region of a subframe. So to find the available resources for PDCCH, UE has to know the PHICH configuration only, as PCFICH resources are fixed and known

  2. No not the copies are broadcasting in the middle 10ms.. extracting all the data in 40ms at this position i.e SFN mod 4 = 0,1,2 and 3 forms complete 1920 bits MIB block..

  3. Each of the repeated transmission is self decodable to make one complete MIB provided the radio conditions are very good. Otherwise in bad SIR, soft combination over four radio frames is used to improve decoding performance

  4. Can a UE read the MIB information in the camped but non-attached state?

  5. SFN field in the MIB records only the most significant 8 bits of the actual SFN; the remaining 2 bits are determined by which of the 4 repetitions the UE is looking at (00 for the first copy, 01 for the second, and so on can any one explain me wt it means..

  6. Suppose an eNB receives some how the MIB from a neighbor cell working on different freq. and the eNB wants to transfer this information to a specific connected UE. How can the eNB do that?
    1- in a dedicated RRC control message?
    2- on what logical channel ?
    3- will that specific UE interrupts its data during the reception of that information?
    Any answers?

  11. You may hear that genuine dank vapes or vape dank dont have a sequential number.on the other hand,in the event
    that you draw up on the mouthpiece,and it flies out,you can make sure its a phony.they may likewise be a 'Ccell' logo
    imprinted on the base of the dank vape cartridge to show it is phony.nontheless, you can discover individuals asserting that
    the Ccell stamp affirms its realness .despite every one of the cases,its essential to just depend on target data.moistvape

  13. Marijuana—also called weed, herb, pot, grass, bud, ganja, Mary Jane, and a vast number of other slang terms—is a greenish-gray mixture of the dried flowers of Cannabis sativa.

    The main active chemical in marijuana is THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol), the psychoactive ingredient. The highest concentrations of THC are found in the dried flowers, or buds. When marijuana smoke is inhaled, THC rapidly passes from the lungs into the bloodstream and is carried to the brain and other organs throughout the body. THC from the marijuana acts on specific receptors in the brain, called cannabinoid receptors, starting off a chain of cellular reactions that finally lead to the euphoria, or "high" that users experience. Feeling of a relaxed state, euphoria, and an enhanced sensory perception may occur. With higher THC levels in those who are not used to the effects, some people may feel anxious, paranoid, or have a panic attack.
    Cannabis plant used for medical or recreational purposes. The main psychoactive part of cannabis is tetrahydrocannabinol, one of the 483 known compounds in the plant, including at least 65 other cannabinoids.

  17. Recently, the canna industry has been going through an edit, with many previously ignored products like THC Cartridges now leading the way. Popular vape shops near me carry the following; CBD Oil, KingPen, Brass Knuckles, Cereal Carts, Dank Vapes, Mario Carts, Smart Carts, Stiiizy Pods. This is always a positive as innovation is always welcome in the industry, with no exceptions nonetheless. This growth represents the future of the canna industry, far and wide.
