Reply To: Question about the calculation of SINR


Dear Yvan,

in general, since this is a downlink simulator, we assume a UE at the receiver side that is assumed to have an omnidirectional antenna. Also in the disseration that you reference, only an antenna gain on the transmit-side is considered (for signal as well as interference). In general for the noise power, it is modelled independently from the antenna gain (which is a fair assumption in a cellular wireless comm. context).

Best regards,
