MathWorks unveils LTE System Toolbox for MATLAB

LTE, short for long-term evolution (like the next-generation LTE Advanced), is a standard for wireless communication of high-speed data for mobile phones and data terminals. It is anticipated to become the first truly global mobile phone standard. Having said this, the different LTE frequencies and bands used in different countries will mean that only multi-band phones will be able to use LTE in all countries where it is supported. Still, it's a huge step in the right direction.

I'm waffling on about this because MathWorks has introduced an LTE System Toolbox, which provides standard-compliant simulation, verification and analysis of LTE and LTE Advanced wireless communication systems and devices.


In the evolution of wireless cellular standards, all paths eventually lead to some form of LTE or a WiMAX alternative. (Source: Agilent Technologies).

LTE System Toolbox supports conformance testing and includes performance measures to verify compliance with standard specifications.

The product is an extension to MATLAB and the Communications System Toolbox. It provides standard-compliant LTE (and LTE Advanced) golden reference models and test waveforms to help engineers tasked with designing and verifying wireless systems conforming to the LTE standard.
