Remcom Presentation: Using Modeling and Simulation to Assess Challenges and Solutions for 5G Fixed Wireless Access

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.  Our approach uses enhanced ray-tracing that captures the full details of polarization and multipath so that we can predict how the placement, environment, and complex new techniques such as massive MIMO beamforming can impact the effectiveness of a solution.  Results are presented in terms of the predicted signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio (SINR) and the potential throughput for wireless broadband.  The objective of the study is to provide insight into some of the key issues posed by FWA, as well as to provide a new proposed methodology for evaluating different designs and to plan for their placement within realistic environments.

Using XFdtd and Wireless InSite to Ensure 5G Device Success 

XFdtd and Wireless InSite ensure a comprehensive device design process, from simulating the initial antenna pattern to computing throughput performance in a multipath channel model. Together the products ensure a device will work well in its intended environment. 

XFdtd enables in-depth analysis of a device’s stand alone performance:

  • mmWave and MIMO arrays

  • Characterize antenna performance

  • Efficiency, radiation patterns, and more

Results are easily exported to Wireless InSite where the device is analyzed in its intended environment.

Wireless InSite Update: MIMO Beamforming and Throughput

See a demonstration of Wireless InSite's new features in our booth!

In addition to beamforming, the new release of Wireless InSite will feature key MIMO techniques for enhancing network performance, including spatial multiplexing and diversity.

  • 3D ray tracing valid up to 100 GHz

  • Simulate massive MIMO arrays

  • MIMO beamforming, spatial multiplexing, and diversity techniques

  • Throughput and capacity for MIMO systems

  • Diffuse scattering

  • High-performance computing
