LTE System Toolbox
LTE System Toolbox enables you to model and simulate the physical layer of the LTE standard. With link-level simulations you can obtain expected measures of performance, including throughput and block error rate, and evaluate real implementations based on simulated measures. The system toolbox also enables better system planning, for example, by facilitating link-level simulations that provide some of the parameters needed to design a cell tower of a given geometry and propagation profile.
The set of supported functions for transmitter, receiver, and channel modeling operations includes:
Frequency division duplex (FDD) and time division duplex (TDD) frame structures and carrier frequencies
All transmission bandwidths, including LTE from 1.4 to 20 MHz and LTE-A up to 100 MHz with carrier aggregation
LTE physical signals, including downlink and uplink reference signals and synchronization signals
LTE physical channels, including control channels and shared channels
Full downlink processing chain, including downlink shared and control channel processing, all MIMO multi-antenna schemes, and OFDM signal generation
Full uplink processing chain, including uplink shared and control channel processing, uplink SU-MIMO and MU-MIMO multi-antenna schemes, and SC-FDMA signal generation
LTE-defined propagation channel models, including extended pedestrian A model (EPA), extended vehicular A model (EVA), extended typical urban model (ETU), moving propagation channel models, and high-speed train MIMO channel models
LTE System Toolbox enables you to set up tests that measure the throughput performance of a physical downlink shared channel (PDSCH) under conformance test conditions specified in the LTE standard document TS 36.101. System toolbox data structures let you concisely express all system parameters, and system toolbox functions let you express all combinations of transmitter, channel model and receiver operations. Using these tools for conformance and block error rate (BLER) testing, you can obtain link-level performance measures and verify compliance with standard specifications.
