LTE System Toolbox

Simulate the physical layer of LTE and LTE-Advanced wireless communications systems

LTE System Toolbox™ provides standard-compliant functions and apps for the design, simulation, and verification of LTE and LTE-Advanced communications systems. The system toolbox accelerates LTE algorithm and physical layer (PHY) development, supports golden reference verification and conformance testing, and enables test waveform generation. With the system toolbox, you can configure, simulate, measure, and analyze end-to-end communications links. You can also create and reuse a conformance test bench to verify that designs, prototypes, and implementations comply with the LTE standard.
