4G System Lab™ is an advanced planning and analysis tool for LTE and mobile WiMAX. It can be used at all stages of the LTE or mobile WiMAX radio access network analysis, from coverage and capacity prediction, through validation of the influence of chosen radio resource management (RRM) features up to technology business casing. As such, 4G System Lab™ is addressed to a vast spectrum of end users, including universities, research institutions, telecom equipment vendors, system integrators, consultancies, regulators and finally cellular operators.

4G System Lab™

  1. 1. 4G System Lab™ is an advanced planning and analysis tool for LTE and mobileWiMAX. It can be used at all stages of the LTE or mobile WiMAX radio access 4G System Lab™ can be used by:network analysis, from coverage and capacity prediction, through validation ofthe influence of chosen radio resource management (RRM) features up to mobile operatorstechnology business casing. As such, 4G System Lab™ is addressed to a vast telecom equipmentspectrum of end users, including universities, research institutions, telecom vendors, OEMs, ODMs,equipment vendors, system integrators, consultancies, regulators and finally chipset vendorscellular operators. 4G System Lab™ can be licensed as a stand-alone or web- research institutions andbased application. universities business and financial analysts telecom regulators consultants and technical trainers4G System Lab™ belongs to the category of system-level This includes terminals mobility, cell selection / reselections,simulators truly reflecting the behavior of a modeled radio attach, random access, admission control, handovers, poweraccess network. A tool user selects and configures the radio control, scheduling and many more. Special attention is giveninterface (either LTE or mobile WiMAX), chooses appropriate to co-channel interference (CCI) control, where functionalitieschannel and traffic models, defines the network to be analyzed, managing CCI can be easily modeled and verified. Aftermakes the choice on the set of RRM functionalities and runs the simulation, user-defined network statistics collected oversimulation. The tool is time-driven and models, with high defined observation time window, are available as reports foraccuracy, all the events that happen within a radio network. post processing.
  2. 2. In addition to an in-depth technical evaluation including coverage and capacity estimation, traffic analysis, verification of various RRM schemes and CCI control mechanisms, we provide rich business analysis environment. This allows for network dimensioning, estimation of the costs of introduction of a certain technology or set of features, their prospective revenues, BEP and ROI estimations and finally for vendor short-listing, which can be particularly interested for mobile operators. 4G System Lab™ complements the other IS-Wireless products such as LTE PHY Lab™ and WiMAX PHY Lab™, as can be seen Figure 1. IS-Wireless products in figure 1. It is a continuously evolving product. In the nearThe role played by RRM features in LTE, LTE-Advanced and future it will include features belonging to 3GPP Rel 9 and moremobile WiMAX will be far greater than in previous wireless importantly to Rel 10 – also known as LTE-Advanced.systems. Therefore we decided to put special emphasis onappropriate modeling of RRM features. This constitutes thecornerstone of 4G System Lab™ and differentiates itsignificantly from the classical RNP tools. We provide plenty of źMCS tablesrepresentative algorithms for RRM and CCI control. For those źRRM functionalities parameters (e.g. Handover threshold,users who want to verify their own features – we provide an congestion control actions, etc.)open API so that they can easily implement their own solution. źPropagation conditionsThe same holds for channel and traffic models, which can also źBS and Terminal configuration (Noise figures, antennabe user-defined.
