NYUSIM: The Open Source 5G Channel Model Simulator software

NYU WIRELESS 5G Millimeter Wave Statistical Channel Model Suitable for 3GPP and Academic/Industrial

Project Description

Extensive measurements and 5G millimeter wave channel models have been developed from 2 to 73 ghz. Here we provide a complete statistical channel model and simulation code (in Matlab) for generating realistic spatial and temporal wideband channel impulse responses — these results are available for public use and suitable in 3GPP and other standard bodies and academic/industrial simulations.
