Propagation Characteristics of Millimeter-Wave Band for 5G Mobile Communications


Background: Millimeter wave band has been identified as a potential frequency band to meet out the high data traffic targeted in 5G Mobile Communications. At this band, the losses during its propagation pose greater challenges in its use for communication. Methods: Propagation characteristics of millimeter wave band have been analyzed through simulation considering the MIMO-OFDM system in Matlab. The propagation characteristics in terms of losses, bit-error rate, cell edge performance and cell throughput are analyzed. Findings: The MIMO-OFDM using millimeter wave band is capable of delivering an average cell throughput and cell-edge throughput performances better than the current LTE Advanced Systems. Application: Higher throughput performance of the MIMO-OFDM in millimeter wave band necessitates its use in 5G Mobile Communication Systems.
