5G mmW Models Go Open Source

Findings from NYU Wireless model millimeter waves

In an effort to speed 5G development, NYU Tandon School of Engineering’s wireless research center will provide its channel models and measurements for cellular propagation in the millimeter wave (mmW) band as free, open-source software. The simulation will help product developers understand the behavior and capabilities of the mmW radio spectrum.

The free download includes statistical channel model and simulation code for generating channel impulse responses, calculating time delays, locating angles of arrival of energy in urban channels, and determining received power levels. The data focuses on the space between 2 GHz and 73 GHz, using measurements taken over the course of four years in New York City and Austin, Texas.
