Executive Summary

The authors investigate the reliability of radio channel simulators in predicting channel responses 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. They assess the performance of this approach by comparing its predictions with measurements in a specific static environment. The good agreement on path loss, Ricean K-factor and RMS delay spread, over the set of paths measured and simulated, suggests that a well-designed radio simulator can be used reliably to predict system behavior.
