Tutorial Day - Simulation Tools for 5G New Radio

on 10-02-2021

... Within ConfTELE 2021, this Tutorial Day is organized by IT's TeamUp5G, the Mobile Communications Thematic Network (RTCM) and IEEE VTS (Vehicular Technology Society) Portugal Chapter.

9:00 am – 12:30 pm: "5G New Radio simulations with ns-3"
Lorenza Giupponi, Senior Researcher, Mobile Networks Department, CTTC, Spain
Biljana Bojovic, Research Engineer, Mobile Networks Department, CTTC, Spain

This tutorial is designed as an introduction to the 5G New Radio modules of ns-3. By the end of the session, participants should have a basic understanding of the scope of the 5G New Radio module in ns-3, and of the capability that the module and its branches can offer.

The following elements are planned to be covered:
• Basics of 3GPP NR at PHY and MAC
• Evolution across releases
• NR model overview & architecture
• Modeling assumptions
• Channel model and antenna models
• NR Radio Protocol Stack model
• PHY model
• MAC models
• MAC Scheduler models
• RLC and PDCP protocol models
• RRC model
• Other branches

2:00 pm – 4:30 pm: "Understanding the 5G-air-simulator: A tutorial on design criteria, technical components, and reference use cases"
Giuseppe Piro and Sergio Martiradonna, Politecnico di Bari

This tutorial will first present 5G-air-simulator and its general-purpose features. Then it will describe a series of simulation campaigns for typical 5G scenarios, recently investigated in scientific literature and European projects. Moreover, it will explain the syntax used to perform some simulations, as well as the steps to extract the main KPIs, in order to facilitate an immediate usage of 5G-air-simulator.

Participation is free, but registration is mandatory.
