  System Level Simulation Software

  • Developed and delivered multiple software tools in C++/Matlab to simulate system level multi cell large scale cellular systems. These simulator can model radio traffic, air interface, dynamic interference, auto correlated and cross correlated shadowing, realistic sectorized antenna patterns, power control and many other advanced features of real world cellular system. The simulators were used to research, optimise, evaluate and compare the performance of various deployment architectures including High altitude platform based deployment of various systems including GSM, WiMAX, LTE.
