Objective of Long Term Evolution (LTE) is to achieve higher data rates, higher bandwidth, Low latency, go od Quality of Servi ce whereas objective of Narrow Band Internet of Things (NB - IOT) is to achieve extended coverage, to support massive number o f smart devices and have mul ti - year long battery life. NB - IoT does not require low latency and higher bandwidth for functioning. These differences make lot of changes in LTE and NB - IoT protocols and procedures. In LTE, the Ph ysical Control Format Indicator Channel (PCFICH) is a downlink control channel that indicates the number of OFDM symbols used by the primary downlink control channel in each subframe. Even though the PCFICH only carries two bits of control information, it is essential to the operation of LTE as next ste ps in downli nk chain depend heavily on it . This work focusses on deco ding of P CFICH efficientl y.
