Increased support for RF MIMO systems design and development with MathWorks updates: Page 6 of 6

Designers and R&D teams developing the next round of Wireless Infrastructure will need to provide a system with ultra-high throughput, massive connectivity for the IoT and high integration for devices. If you fall in this category, you will want to take a really detailed look at what MathWorks has just brought to the table for you. 5G is coming fast.

Next, designers/R&D teams can incorporate their antenna and RF models into the Downstream Workflow. See Figures 13 and 14.

5G technology R&D

With 5G being so close to implementation, tough requirements need to be addressed, such as Enhanced mobile broadband of greater than 20 Gbps, Ultra-low latency of less than 10 msec, massive machine-type connectivity, ubiquitous coverage and service everywhere and anytime, and LTE/WLAN co-existence.

Some candidate technologies to make the above requirements a part of the 5G system reality, new technologies must be implemented such as Massive MIMO and beamforming, Active phased array antenna systems, emerging waveforms like UFMS, FBMC and GFDM must be addressed, higher bandwidth and mmWave bands employed and so much more.
