WINNER II Channel
Using WINNER II channel models, you can model and simulate spatially defined channels for multiuser MIMO wireless systems. In the model you can specify an arbitrary number of base stations (BS) and mobile stations (MS) together with their geometry and location information.
Figure 3.1 from  (shown here), depicts a system level simulation including multiple base stations and multiple mobile terminals. Within the figure the dashed blue line surrounding a car and cell tower, highlights a link level simulation for the link between one mobile terminal and a base station. The short blue lines, along the path of the car, represent channel segments where large scale parameters are fixed. The system level simulation consists of multiple links. Each link is modeled using the clustered delay line (CDL) method. The inset shows a CDL method model of one link in the scenario.
The channel model enables you to simulate line-of-sight (LOS) and non-LOS propagation conditions. The model also enables you to apply multiple indoor and outdoor propagation scenarios. You can perform channel filtering in a streaming fashion with WINNER-generated channel coefficients.
The channel model supports:
RF frequencies up to 6 GHz
Signal bandwidths up to 100 MHz
LOS and non-LOS propagation
12 indoor and outdoor propagation scenarios
Arbitrarily large antenna arrays (for massive MIMO applications)
Isotropic, dipole, and user-defined antenna element patterns
A variety of antenna array types (such as linear, circular, and user-defined)
To use this functionality, download and install the WINNER II Channel Model for Communications Toolbox add-on.
The add-on includes the
System object™ and provides the capability currently available in the open source download in
functionality in the download includes these functions:
