Remcom Announces Diffuse Scattering Simulation for 5G mmWave Channels

Remcom has added diffuse scattering prediction to the latest release of Wireless InSite, the site-specific radio propagation software for the analysis of wireless communication systems. The update greatly improves simulation accuracy for millimeter wave systems being developed for 5G, WiGig, and other emerging technologies.

Wireless InSite simulates the detailed multipath of large numbers of MIMO channels while overcoming the increased level of computations required for traditional ray tracing methods. As 5G technology forces expansion into higher frequencies in the millimeter wave spectrum, the diffuse scattering model further increases precision by revealing how paths interact with a variety of surfaces and structures and how signal power is affected by these interactions. Key effects such as impact on complex impulse response and increased cross-polarization of received signals may be visualized.

The Key capabilities of this update include:

  • Innovative ray-tracing allows scattering from any interaction along a ray path
  • Three scattering options support normal, forward and backscatter
  • Accurate polarization captures co- and cross-polarization effects
  • Handling of relative phase supports MIMO arrays

The diffuse scattering model is available in the professional and MIMO versions of the Wireless InSite Software Suite.
