For a 5G wireless communication system, a convolutional deep neural network (CNN) is employed to synthesize a robust channel state estimator (CSE). The proposed CSE extracts channel information from transmit-and-receive pairs through offline training to estimate the channel state information. Also, it utilizes pilots to offer more helpful information about the communication channel. The proposed CNN-CSE performance is compared with previously published results for Bidirectional/long short-term memory (BiLSTM/LSTM) NNs-based CSEs. The CNN-CSE achieves outstanding performance using sufficient pilots only and loses its functionality at limited pilots compared with BiLSTM and LSTM-based estimators. Using three different loss function-based classification layers and the Adam optimization algorithm, a comparative study was conducted to assess the performance of the presented DNNs-based CSEs. The BiLSTM-CSE outperforms LSTM, CNN, conventional least squares (LS), and minimum mean square error (MMSE) CSEs. In addition, the computational and learning time complexities for DNN-CSEs are provided. These estimators are promising for 5G and future communication systems because they can analyze large amounts of data, discover statistical dependencies, learn correlations between features, and generalize the gotten knowledge.
