This is a collection of application examples written by Remcom’s engineers. They demonstrate how Remcom’s software can be used to solve challenges related to 5G and MIMO use cases such as MIMO and array design, 5G urban small cells, fixed wireless access, indoor WiFi and mmWave, beamforming, and more.
One of the planned technologies that may change the digital landscape in the early rollouts of 5G is fixed wireless access (FWA), which will provide new and more flexible wireless solutions for broadband for the last mile to the home. In this paper, we use new modeling and simulation techniques to investigate some of the most critical challenges that FWA faces for operation in the physical environment at millimeter waves.
This presentation demonstrates a new predictive tool for simulating Full Dimension Multiple Input, Multiple Output (FD-MIMO) in urban environments. We evaluate a hypothetical small cell base station employing FD-MIMO for cases using different numbers of transmit antennas, then analyze predicted multipath in the environment and compare performance of beamforming techniques for each of the simulated cases.
This presentation demonstrates a new predictive capability for simulating massive MIMO antennas and beamforming in dense urban propagation environments. Remcom's unique approach allows us to predict the signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio (SINR) at specific device locations and the actual physical beams formed using these techniques, including unintentional distortions caused by pilot contamination.
To keep up with rising demand and new technologies, the wireless industry is researching a wide array of solutions for 5G, including Massive MIMO. Remcom’s Wireless InSite provides an efficient method to predict channel characteristics for large-array MIMO antennas in complex multipath environments.
