Now let us look into the important metrics that are used as indicators to examine the performance of the 5G network. 


  • Vertical key performance indicators
    • These indicators can be oriented to the level of the system
    • The capability of the system to achieve its goals is studied through these indicators
    • For example the users who do not face better experience on a specific time period can be a good indicator for 5G performance
  • Network key performance indicator
    • The infrastructural parameters of a network that are analyzed using this indicators are listed below
      • Throughput
      • Packet loss
      • Jittering
      • Delay
    • These parameters are measured in Milli second time scale
  • User key performance indicator
    • The experience of the user is majorly determined under this indicator
    • Bioindicators measuring experience of the user under various heads are in the range of few seconds to several minutes
    • The example include arrival time error of a bus (deviation from the estimation)

We are specialists in handling 5G projects and simulation tools that show supremely significant results on the above indicators. We also make efforts to constantly scan the network for security breaches.

We are always vigilant about the 5G network functioning, most receptive and responsive to the network environment and users’ needs. Now let us talk about the workflow of 5G network simulation tools


In simple words, the working of any 5G simulator tool is based on the following steps

  • The executable software is defined
  • The simulation environment under investigation is determined
  • Then the parameters for structuring the network including the network algorithm, technical components, protocols and deployments are configured

Only specific lines we can demonstrate the 5G simulation tool workflow as follow

  • The parameters for determining the load scenario
  • The necessary topology including the links and nodes are generated
  • Adaptation of link is the next step
  • Transmission both at the uplink and downlink happens next
  • Is more number of frames or are detected then the above two steps are repeated
  • And finally post process results of simulation declared

These are the steps involved in the simulation process carried out by any kind of 5G simulation tool. We help you in achieving your research objectives. We never let you fall short of the expectations that you have on us. 

Knowing more about the simulation is the need of the hour. This is insisted because we have experience in working with researchers who find it difficult to choose their research topic in 5G simulation. So now, let us have some ideas on the research areas in the 5G simulation.

Researchers get more and more of hunger to extend their research only when they become aware of their potential demands. We are here to create such motivations for researchers. The methods in which we provide the stimulus vary with the attitude of the researcher. Now let us have some ideas on the metrics used for analyzing the 5G simulation system performance. This can also be a great stimulus to your research. 


Your project’s performance on the 5G simulation can help you get through many researchers’ vast kinds of problems. This is because the performance metrics are the fundamentals upon which your entire project can be built in an efficient manner. The following are key measures of 5G simulation software and system performance.

  • Maximum cell goodput
  • Rate of collision (random Access)
  • Packet delay
  • Packet loss ratio
  • Throughput (cell – edge)
  • Throughput per user (average value)
  • Rate of output processing (for relevant data extraction during every simulation)

Our projects showed extremely appreciable results on all the above parameters of performance measurement. So we can prominently help you to overcome many research challenges and precede efficient research work. 

As time advance, the demands increase thereby the responsibility of a researcher working on 5G simulation projects also evolve. We are here to hold you up on all aspects of your research. Contact us for further assistance.
