Simulate, analyze, and test the physical layer of LTE and LTE-Advanced wireless communications systems
Generate downlink physical signals, physical channels, transport channels, and control information.
Generate uplink physical signals, physical channels, transport channels, and control information.
Propagation Channel Models
Characterize and simulate 3D channels, MIMO fading channels (EPA, EVA, and ETU), and moving high-speed train MIMO channels.
Perform link-level BER, BLER, and throughput conformance tests.
Configure downlink and uplink reference measurement channels.
