The following steps can be followed to simulate a 5G HetNet in NetSim

  1. Drag and drop base stations (gNBs), and UEs
  2. Have N classes of BSs (say 2 namely macro and small) based on frequency, transmit power, and bandwidth
  3. Let them be: Frequency F1, F2, Bandwidth: B1, B2, and Transmit Power: P1, P2
  4. NetSim will automatically calculate pathloss based on the frequency and location of the UEs/BSs
  5. UEs will associate with the BS from which it receives the highest power
  6. Backhaul for all BSs is wired connectivity to the core
