We are pleased to announce that today, 28 August 2019, we are releasing to the public the second version of the 5G-LENA software.
This release contains tons of fixed bugs, plus some exciting features. Worth mentioning is an updated channel model, with a separate procedure for beamforming and the possibility to compute UE/UE and gNB/gNB interferences. The code has been refactored to include a new MAC/PHY state machine for transmissions in unlicensed bands, and we added the necessary interfaces for the Listen-Before-Talk procedure. However, at the moment we are still not releasing NR-U extensions, so it is not possible yet to run full simulations in unlicensed bands with LBT. This part of the work will be released in the upcoming months, along with a complete Link-To-System-Mapping that follows the NR specifications.
Here you can find the release notes (we documented each change in detail in the file CHANGES.md). In this link, you can find all the necessary instructions to update your installation. If you still do not have access to the software, please follow the instructions.
Without any doubt, we would love to hear from you for a possible collaboration to improve 5G-LENA!
The 5G-LENA team
