LTE Toolbox

Simulate, analyze, and test the physical layer of LTE and LTE-Advanced wireless communications systems

LTE Toolbox™ provides standard-compliant functions and apps for the design, simulation, and verification of LTE, LTE-Advanced, and LTE-Advanced Pro communications systems. The system toolbox accelerates LTE algorithm and physical layer (PHY) development, supports golden reference verification and conformance testing, and enables test waveform generation.

With the toolbox you can configure, simulate, measure, and analyze end-to-end communications links. You can also create and reuse a conformance test bench to verify that your designs, prototypes, and implementations comply with the LTE standard.

Using LTE Toolbox with RF instruments or hardware support packages, you can connect transmitter and receiver models to radio devices and verify your designs via over-the-air transmission and reception.

Waveform Generation

Generate standard-compliant LTE, LTE-Advanced, and LTE-Advanced Pro waveforms. Configure and create various downlink, uplink and channels and signals.

Downlink Processing

Generate downlink physical signals, physical channels, transport channels, and control information.

Uplink Processing

Generate uplink physical signals, physical channels, transport channels, and control information.

Link-Level Simulation

Model end-to-end communication links. Perform waveform generation, channel modeling, and receiver operations. Compute BER, BLER, throughput, and conformance tests.

Propagation Channel Models

Characterize and simulate 3D channels, MIMO fading channels (EPA, EVA, and ETU), and moving high-speed train MIMO channels.

Conformance Testing

Perform link-level BER, BLER, and throughput conformance tests.

Test and Measurement
