The radio propagation channel determines the real-world performance of wireless communication systems. However, having good channel models is a challenging task when it comes to 5G and 6G wireless communications system design. Because the propagation characteristics of millimeter wave and Terahertz channels are still being researched, it is challenging to measure and characterize them. This presentation offers valuable insights on wireless channel research and system engineering.
In this presentation we will introduce the fundamental basis of wireless channel research and demonstrate a novel heuristic channel characterization method using electromagnetics and optical ray tracing in conjunction with system simulation software. In addition, we will demonstrate how the channel models are used in system simulation to analyze overall communication link performance.
Attendees of this webinar will:
- Learn an approach for 5G / 6G system architects to use in advanced channel modeling.
- Understand the process of characterizing, modeling, and visualizing these channels.
- See examples of enhanced channel usage in system simulation.
