Design and Assessment of a 5G Base Station Using Massive MIMO for Fixed Wireless Access

Fixed Wireless Access is a key application expected to benefit from 5G networks. This webinar video from Remcom demonstrates how modeling and simulation can be used to assist system designers, first in the design of a complex antenna array for a base station, and then to assess its potential performance in the field. The session begins with an overview of simulations using Remcom's XFdtd to design a massive MIMO array and simulate effective antenna patterns and efficiency for elements of the array.

This includes the prediction of sample beam patterns using beamforming weighting coefficients to estimate peak gain along with other performance metrics over a range of angles. The overall objective is to demonstrate a simulation-based methodology for designing systems and antennas and evaluating these designs when placed within realistic environments for their intended application.
