Beamforming and Multiple Input Multiple Output
(MIMO) have been identified as key technologies to meet the ever
increasing capacity demands in future mobile cellular networks.
So far, these features have mainly been investigated in the
azimuth dimension, considering one-dimensional antenna arrays.
Recently, the 3rd Generation Partnership Project has released a
new 3-dimensional (3D) spatial channel model that also accounts
for the elevation. It supports two-dimensional antenna arrays
and enables to scrutinize concepts such as elevation beamforming
and Full Dimension-Multiple Input Multiple Output. However,
existing studies have mainly been carried out with commercial
tools, thus largely limiting their reproducibility. This paper
provides a guideline for the practical implementation of the 3D
channel model into existing link- and system level simulation
tools. Considering the complexity of the model itself, our main
focus is on computational efficiency. We validate our approach
with the Vienna LTE-A Downlink System Level Simulator and
present simulation examples with various planar antenna arrays
and polarization schemes.
