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.

MobiWise: from Mobile Sensing to Mobility Advising

on 15-12-2020

... Within the scope of the P2020 project "MobiWise: from Mobile Sensing to Mobility Advising", this workshop aims to present the project's final results. It will be held on a virtual basis, on December 15th, 2-5pm.

This event features a panel with the main operators and technology suppliers for 5G and future generations of communications: Altice, NOS, Wavecom, Siemens and Ericsson; and with a panel of international experts in the field of sensing, communications and mobility.

In between these panels there will be a demonstration session of the project's results.

MobiWise aims to enhance mobility in the cities, both for commuters and for tourists, through the development of a 5G platform that encompasses an access infrastructure filled with sensors, people and vehicles. The project will connect any sensor, person and vehicle, and will use all possible information to improve the user mobility, through a complete network and services platform for an Internet of Things real deployment in a smart city.
