WiMAX Channel Model for Mountainous Areas
The standard IEEE 802.16 was originally conceived for targeting local and metropolitan area networks, for relatively small link distances. However, the significant deployment of novel wireless-based applications as well as the availability of advanced transmission techniques has suggested a possible extension of the standard-based systems to mountainous and isolated areas. From the propagation point of view, those demanding scenarios result in to non-line-of-sight, long delay spread, and very rich scattering radio environments. Nowadays, no channel models proposed in the literature are suitable for modeling 3.5 GHz transmission in such demanding scenarios.
