Abstract:
The exploration phase for high performance 5G communication systems is well under way with ongoing investigations into enabling technologies that will support the use of more spectrum and mm-wave frequencies, smaller high-density cells, improved device power efficiency, new modulation schemes for diverse device coexistence and high directivity over-the-air (OTA) transmission made possible through the implementation of Massive MIMO antenna arrays and beam steering technologies. This article examines several of these emerging technologies and recent advances in simulation software to help the designer develop the underlying 5G hardware.
