A C++ open source LTE / LTE-Advanced system-level simulator with an efficient and fully calibrated ITU IMT-Advanced channel model implementation and a MIMO-capable link-to-system interface

Installation guidelines, screenshots and instructions on how to perform simulations can be found at http://zeus3.lkn.ei.tum.de/personen/jan/imtaphy/index.php

Features:
========

LTE / LTE-Advanced simulator:
* FDD LTE/LTE-Advanced protocol stack (from traffic generators to phy)
* Round Robin (DL+UL) / Proportional Fair (DL only) scheduling strategies
* Outer-loop BLER/HARQ adaptive link-adaptation in the downlink
* Frequency-selective channel state feedback for DL transmissions supported (CQI feedback)
* Uplink frequency-selective channel state information for uplink scheduler
* Downlink closed-loop MIMO feedback (PMI and RI) (spatial multiplexing / rank-1 transmission) supported
* Power-control support for UL transmissions
* CS-RS / DM-RS / CSI-RS / PBCH / PDCCH / SRS / PUCCH PHY overhead configurable
* UM RLC
* support for non-adaptive synchronous/asynchronous HARQ with Chase Combining

Link-to-System Model:
* SINR receiver performance model for linear MIMO receivers (MRC, MMSE) with linear precoding
* Mean Mutual Information per Bit based effective SINR mapping
* MMSE-FDE model for uplink
* AWGN BLER results for different modulation and coding schemes and block lengths for eff. SINR to BLER lookup
* Chase Combining HARQ support

ITU-R Report M.2135 compliant Spatial Channel Model (Primary Module):
* full C++ implementation
* very fast implementation with low memory footprint compared to standard implemenations (e.g. 4-5 times faster at only 20% of memory consumption compared to reference Matlab implementation using C-MEX extensions)
* supports InH, UMi, UMa, RMa, and SMa scenarios with LoS, NLoS, and O-to-I (UMi only) propagation
* support for polarized antenna field patterns
* accuracy of channel model inputs (delays, angles, powers and correlation of large scale parameters) is unit-tested against Matlab reference implementation

IMT-Advanced evaluation reference scenarios:
* supports cellular scenarios with sectorized base station sites with 1, 7, and 19 sites (i.e. 3, 21, and 57 cell sectors)
* static or M.2135-compliant random LoS and NLoS selection
* pathloss models for InH, UMa, UMi, RMa, and SMa with appropriate Outdoor-to-Indoor and Outdoor-to-Vehicle shadowing
* correlated shadowing either from correlated large scale parameters (M.2135-compliant)
* supports scenario wrap-around for 7 and 19 sites scenarios

Calibration setups:
* supporting all ITU IMT-Advanced deployment scenarios: UMi, UMa, RMa, SMa and InH
* calibrated against 3GPP (TR 36.814 / R1-092019) large scale (path gain, geometry) reference curves
* calibrated against 3GPP (TR 36.814 / R1-092742) post-receiver combining SINR and LTE throughput reference curves
