LTE Toolbox


LTE Toolbox

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

Waveform Generation

Generate standard-compliant LTE, LTE-Advanced, LTE-Advanced Pro and UMTS waveforms. Configure and generate custom waveforms, test models (E-TM), and reference measurement channels (RMC). Interactively create, visualize, and export waveforms with the Wireless Waveform Generator app.

Link-Level Simulation

Model end-to-end communication links. Perform waveform generation, channel modeling, and receiver operations. Test conformance using metrics such as BER, BLER, and throughput. Characterize and simulate 3D channels, MIMO fading channels (EPA, EVA, and ETU), and moving high-speed train MIMO channels.

Test and Measurement

Evaluate the performance of LTE RF transmitters and receivers using measurements such as EVM, ACLR, and in-band emissions. Characterize the impact of IQ imbalance, phase noise, and power amplifier nonlinearities on the performance of LTE transceiver. Generate coexisting LTE and 5G NR waveforms for dynamic spectrum sharing.

Signal Recovery

Perform LTE downlink and uplink receiver operations, including frame synchronization, frequency offset, frequency correction, channel estimation, and zero-forcing and MMSE-based equalization. Model UE detection and cell identity search, including master information block (MIB) decoding and first system information block (SIB1) recovery.


Model and simulate applications for the Internet of Things (IoT). Generate downlink waveform for in-band and guardband operation mode on an LTE carrier. Perform a narrowband physical downlink shared channel (NPDSCH) throughput simulation in a non-terrestrial network (NTN) channel. Model narrowband Internet of Things (NB-IoT) and narrowband physical random access channel (NPRACH).

Sidelink D2D and C-V2X

Model device-to-device (D2D) and cellular vehicular communications (C-V2X) applications. Simulate sidelink transmission and reception for direct communications, including Release 14 vehicle-to-vehicle wireless communications.

Radio Connectivity

Connect your transmitter and receiver models to radio devices, including RF instruments or software-defined radio (SDR) hardware. Transmit, acquire, and analyze image and other digital data using an LTE waveform and supported radio devices. Verify your designs via over-the-air transmission and reception.
