Simulation of LTE Networks in NetSim

LTE, an acronym for Long Term Evolution, commonly known as 4G LTE, is a standard for wireless communication of high-speed data for mobile phones and data terminals. It is based on the GSM/EDGE and UMTS/HSPA network technologies, increasing the capacity and speed using a different radio interface together with core network improvements.

  • NetSim LTE implementation is per 3GPP TS 36.xxx standards covering
  • Devices – User Equipment (UE), E-UTRAN Node B (eNB), Mobility Management Entity (MME)
  • Protocol Stack covering NAS (Non access stratum), PDCP (Packet data convergence protocol), RRC (Radio resource control), RLC (Radio link control), Concatenation
  • LTE MAC
  1. Mapping between logical channels and transport channels
  2. Multiplexing of MAC SDUs from one or different logical channels onto transport blocks (TB)
  3. De multiplexing of MAC SDUs from one or different logical channels from transport blocks (TB)
  4. Priority handling between UEs by means of dynamic scheduling
  5. Priority handling between logical channels of one UE
  6. Logical Channel prioritization
  • LTE PHY – OFDM-MIMO Downlink and SC-FDMA uplink, CQI – SNR

The complete white paper explaining the implementation of LTE in NetSim and detailed comparison against NS-3 test suite is available at http://www.tetcos.com/LTE_Vertification_v8.pdf

LTE is available with NetSim v8 which is expected to be shipped from mid august ’14.
