5G system throughput performance evaluation using Massive-MIMO technology with Cluster Delay Line channel model and non-line of sight scenarios
The fourth-generation system for mobile cellular communications (4G) has achieved great developments. The main problem here is that, with the passage of time and technical development, the need for new applications and services has emerged, and thus we need a new system that supports these matters in addition to the problems and limitations. One of the main challenges that the 4G system suffers from is the ability to support a larger number of devices, low latency, working in real time, provide greater capacity, in addition to providing a high data rate (bit rate) – hence 4G stands unable to support many new applications. This is what made researchers aspire to overcome these problems or reduce their impact to the maximum extent and this is what we expect to achieve in the new generation (5G). In this research, a presentation was made of the 5G system regarding with one of its most important techniques (Massive MIMO technology), clarification of some concepts related to the study such as throughput and NLOS (Non-Line of Sight), as well as the channel model used. The results of the experiments were presented with the discussion.
