The NIST Q-D Channel Realization software, initially released in August 2019, is a Three-Dimensional (3D) ray-tracing software developed in Matlab. It provides a flexible, scalable, and realistic channel model based on measurement campaigns to promote the design of next-generation wireless communication and sensing systems at millimeter-wave bands.
This new release includes the following new features:
Datacenter scenario: two nodes are placed on servers’ racks-tops for inter-rack connectivity.
The NIST Q-D realization software is used by NIST and its collaborators to perform accurate system-level simulations of IEEE 802.11ad/ay , and channel modeling scalability studies.
