PROPAGATION PHENOMENA FOR INDOOR WIMAX NETWORKS - Implications on Network Isolation and Security

Iñigo Cuiñas, Manuel García Sánchez

Abstract

The impressive success of wireless networks must be supported by research in the radio level, to assure the performance of several networks sharing the same spectrum allocation and the same spatial position. This work provides the data measured along several years of experimental research in the 5 GHz band, including electromagnetic characterisation of different building materials, deterministic indoor radio channels analysis, as well as non deterministic effects as those introduced by people moving or by furniture within a static environment. Such information could be helpful for network designers to predict the network characteristics and to prevent against possible external non authorised access or isolation problems.
