Characterizing Indoor Wireless Channels Via Ray Tracing, and Validation Via Measurements

Executive Summary

The authors investigate the reliability of radio channel simulators in capturing the important properties of radio channels throughout a well-specified environment. Indoor environments for which the geometric layout and material properties of surfaces are known lend themselves to such site-specific simulation. Their aim is to assess the performance of this approach by comparing its predictions with measurements in a specific environment. The measurements are made on 18 paths in the ORBIT Laboratory of Rutgers University's WINLAB; and the simulator they use is the WiSE ray-tracing tool developed by Bell Labs.
