Closed-Form Path-Loss Predictor for Gaussianly Distributed Nodes

Free registration required

Executive Summary

The emulation of wireless nodes spatial position is a practice used by deployment engineers and network planners to analyze the characteristics of a network. In particular, nodes geo-location will directly impact factors such as connectivity, signals fidelity, and service quality. In literature, in addition to typical homogenous scattering, normal distribution is frequently used to model mobiles concentration in a cellular system. Moreover, Gaussian dropping is often considered as an effective placement method for airborne sensor deployment. Despite the practicality of this model, getting the network channel loss distribution still relies on exhaustive Monte Carlo simulation.
