WLAN Toolbox™ provides standards-compliant functions for the design, simulation, analysis, and testing of wireless LAN communications systems. It includes configurable physical layer waveforms for IEEE® 802.11ax/ac/ad/ah and 802.11b/a/g/n/j/p standards. It also provides transmitter, channel modeling, and receiver operations, including channel coding (BCC and LDPC), modulation (OFDM, DSSS, and CCK), spatial stream mapping, channel models (TGay, TGax, TGac, TGah, and TGn), and MIMO receivers.
The toolbox provides reference designs to help you perform baseband link-level simulations and multi-node system-level simulations. You can generate and parse common MAC frames. You can also perform signal measurements such as channel power, spectrum mask, and occupied bandwidth, and create test benches for the end-to-end simulation of WLAN communications links.
You can study the effects of RF designs and interference on system performance. Using WLAN Toolbox with RF instruments or hardware support packages, you can connect your transmitter and receiver models to radio devices and verify your designs via over-the-air transmission and reception.
The mapping between 802.11™ standards, packet formats, and WLAN Toolbox functions is outlined here.
