Fifth Generation (5G) Cellular Network

Air Interface Parameters

All parameters related with a selected air interface can be specified on the Air Interface tab of the Edit Project Parameter dialog.
Note: The 5G keyword in the .wst file enables the 5G relevant settings on the Edit Project Parameter dialog.

Important 5G-specific settings are the Channel Bandwidth and the Numerology. The Channel Bandwidth is the total frequency range spanned by all the sub-carriers, and the numerology governs the sub-carrier spacing. These settings are only available in projects that have the 5G keyword in the .wst file. The 5G keyword also affects some options in the OFDM/OFDMA settings (see OFDM / SOFDMA (Downlink and Uplink)) and on the Carrier dialog.
