LTE: carrier frequency ID and PCI

Question / Problem description:

Maybe you know if one country mobile operators can use the same PCI’s (using LTE system) in the same place, but working in different frequency blocks?


Yes, if they use different carrier frequencies, they can use the same PCIs (phy cell ids) for the same location. In all sync and measurement procedures the cell identification always includes: carrier frequency id and PCI.
