Abstract

To realize highly reliable video surveillance and provide ultrahigh-definition/immersive video streaming, it is planned to adopt the 5G cellular system using millimeter-wave (mmWave) as the wireless-network infrastructure. However, mmWave communication has a challenging issue: mmWave communication is extremely sensitive to obstacles, such as walls, pillars, and even human bodies, and this issue easily increases the packet loss rates and round trip time (RTT) (or disconnection from the base station) due to a no line of sight (NLOS) environment. Therefore, in this work, 5G throughput performances were evaluates in an indoor train station by considering the effect of an NLOS environment caused by blockage by human bodies. In addition, to improve the robustness of TCP transmission in a high-RTT and high-packet-loss environment (e.g., an NLOS environment), a state-of-the-art TCP, TCP-FSO, was used. In the evaluations, the MATLAB 5G library was used to simulate the 5G environment, and a Linux software-based network emulator, Traffic Control, was used to emulate the 5G network. From the evaluations, it the 5G mobile throughput characteristics were confirmed in three different crowded patterns (low, middle, and high density), and the TCP-FSO advantage against CUBIC-TCP was validated.
