5G Development & channel modelling

EM Slice wireless simulations are used to model the propagation characteristics and performance of new and revolutionary wireless technologies, contributing to the design & evolution of 5G & other wireless communication systems. This is applied to (among other things) millimetre wave (mmWave) channel modelling at frequencies of 20, 60, 80, 120, 300 GHz or higher.

EM Slice models several propagation mechanisms while modelling the performance of indoor & urban wireless networks, they include:

  • pathloss
  • reflection
  • refraction
  • diffraction
  • scattering

These mechanisms can be applied to wireless communications at frequencies in the 2.4 & 5GHz ranges, as well as into the millimetre wave frequencies and higher.

  • Where test points are added to a simulation (indoor or urban) multiple result sets are generated from the received signal and exported, including:
  • angle of departure & arrival
  • path loss
  • signal delay
  • number of traces (reflections + transmissions) from tx to rx
  • whether the signal is line of sight
  • transmitted & received signal power
  • number of successful propagation paths
  • combined signal power from multiple propagation paths
  • etc

This generated data is exported from EM Slice and imported into a spreadsheet or other post processing or data manipulation tool for further analysis.
