We would like to let all know that development of the 5G-LENA simulator is active and we are working on new and exciting features. For example, we have NR-U for coexistence with WiGig in 60 GHz, LTE remodelling inside 5G-LENA, new multicell configuration helper to configure independently each eNB/gNB in the scenario (technology, band, numerology, BWP), and a new Radio Enviromental Map helper. Plus, we are working on a completely new NR V2X module!
You can have a look at our recent publications to get an idea of our working direction:
N.Patriciello, S. Lagen, B. Bojovic, L. Giupponi, “NR-U and IEEE 802.11 Technologies Coexistence in Unlicensed mmWave Spectrum: Models and Evaluation”, in IEEE Access, vol. 8, pp. 71254-71271, 2020.
S.Lagen, N. Patriciello, L. Giupponi, “Cellular and Wi-Fi in Unlicensed Spectrum: Competition leading to Convergence”, in 6G Wireless Summit, 17-20 March 2020, Levi (Finland).
Also, the NR module has been adapted to work in 0.5-100 GHz frenquency ranges, using 3GPP TR 38.901 compliant channel and antenna modeling, as described in:
T.Zugno, M. Polese, N. Patriciello, B. Bojovic, S. Lagen, M. Zorzi, “Implementation of A Spatial Channel Model for ns-3”, in Workshop on ns-3, June 2020.
Please, don’t hesitate to contact us if you are interested on those new features!
