All the preamble sequences should be orthogonal to each other. Otherwise, various preambles from multiple UEs within the same cell can interfere each other. So we have to shift the generated sequence by a specifically designed value and this value is called Cv (Cyclic Shift Value) and it is defined as follows.

enter image description here

First, you would notice that we use different process to calculate Cv depending on whether we use 'unrestricted sets' or 'restricted sets'. This decision is made by 'Highspeedflag' information elements in SIB2. If Highspeedflag is set to be TRUE, we have to use 'restricted sets' and if Highspeedflag is false, we have to use 'unrestricted sets'.

Hope this clarifies the doubt and usage of highspeed flag in prach.

During preamble transmission, how devices choose the frequency band in PRACH for preamble transmission?

If they choose the frequency in PRACH randomly, then there can be the chance of sub-channel(frequency band to send preamble) collision. If above statement is true then how many devices can send the preamble at a random access time slot?

In the process of random access resource selection preambles are selected from group A and B with certain criteria.

Now my question is why we have to use this two sets instead of one set of 64 preambles?

As i know about RACH function is, suppose a UE wants to access the network, so first it will try to attach or syncronise with the network. In LTE a separate channel PRACH ( Physical Random Access Channel) is provided for initial access to the network.

The functionality is clear to me that is not a problem but to understand those two procedures i am having a trouble...
