With respect to the relay node’s usage of spectrum, its operation can be divided into inband and outband types.

Inband: An LTE relay node is said to be "Inband" if the link between the base station and the relay node are on the same carrier frequency as the link between the LTE relay node and the user equipment, UE, i.e. the BS-RN link and the BS-UE link are on the same carrier frequency.

Outband: For Outband LTE relay nodes, RNs, the BS-RN link operates of a different carrier frequency to that of the RN-UE link.

For efficient heterogeneous network planning, 3GPP LTE-Advanced has introduced concept of Relay Nodes (RNs). The Relay Nodes are low power eNodeBs that provide enhanced coverage and capacity at cell edges. One of the main benefits of relaying is to provide extended LTE coverage in targeted areas at low cost.

The Relay Node is connected to the Donor eNB (DeNB) via radio interface, Un, a modified version of E-UTRAN air interface Uu. Donor eNB also srves its own UE as usual, in addition to sharing its radio resources for Relay Nodes.

If my understaing is correct then in case of carrier aggregation(CA), an UE can connect to multiple cells. One of the cell is known as primary cell while other cells are known as secondary cells. Primary cell physical layer failure is detected based on the receiving N310 consecutive "out of sync". Is the same case applicable for secondary cells as well ?
