Same PCI but different frequency

+3 votes

Is it possible for operators to use the same PCI’s (physical cell ids) in the same place, but working in different frequency blocks?

I think 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.

Let say, if cell X had PCI value 22 for 1900Mhz band and cell Y had same PCI(22) for 2500Mhz band. Both these cells are first tier neighbors?

Since vbox has troubles with network latency we want to try pci passthrough of a network card. The docs say we need to "VBoxManage modifyvm "VM name" --pciattach 02:00.0@01:05.0", which means attaching the pci device in question to the guest.
But what about de-taching it from the host? The docs do not mention this at all. Has anybody real experience with this? Do we need to detach the device from the host or does vbox do that automatically in the background when attaching it to a guest?
