LTE throughput Calculator | Calculator on LTE throughput
This LTE throughput Calculator is used for calculation of throughput as per 4G LTE standard. This calculator on LTE throughput is based on MCS, Number of PRBs (Physical Resource Blocks) and number of MIMO antennas.
LTE throughput calculator EXAMPLE:
Input : MCS = 10, PRBs = 20, Number of MIMO Antennas = 2
Outputs : LTE throughput = 6.22 Mbps
LTE throughput calculator formula
Following equation/formula is used for this LTE throughput calculator.
Following steps are followed in this LTE throughput calculation.
STEP-1: Determine Qm and TBS Index (i.e. ITBS) based on MCS (Modulation Coding Rate). Follow table 188.8.131.52-1 in TS 36.213 document.
STEP-2: From TBS Index (i.e. ITBS) and N_PRBs, determine TBS (Transport Block Size).
STEP-3: Above formula is used with TBS derived in step-2. Follow table 184.108.40.206.1-1 in TS 36.213 document.
When no MIMO is enabled there will be single antenna, for 2x2 MIMO enter 2 and for 4x4 MIMO enter 4 as number of antennas.
