INDOOR PROPAGATION MODELS AND RADIO PLANNING FOR WLANS

Rui Lopes, António Serrador, Paulo Freixo

Abstract

WLANs are nowadays at the top of the mass market networks technologies. They are essentially implemented indoors, where the traditional planning tools are not yet focused. In spite of the concern to improve the radio planning quality, the existing propagation models can still be sharpened for better outcomes, mainly in large buildings. A new propagation model is proposed and evaluated with measurements at 2.4GHz and also a planning tool is presented, with the ability to execute coverage and capacity analysis on indoor multi-floors environments. This model adapts itself to multiple indoor scenarios following the performed measurements.
