This article describes the modeling of ultra-wideband wireless propagation channels, especailly for the simulation of personal area networks. The IEEE 802.15.3a standards task group has established a standard channel model to be used for the evaluation of PAN physical layer proposals. We discuss the standard model, the measurements that form its basis, and(More)
We establish a statistical model for the ultra-wide bandwidth (UWB) indoor channel based on an extensive measurement campaign in a typical modern office building with 2-ns delay resolution. The approach is based on the investigation of the statistical properties of the multipath profiles measured in different rooms over a finely spaced measurement grid. The(More)
We suggest a novel approach to handle the ongoing explosive increase in the demand for video content in wireless/mobile devices. We envision femtocell-like base stations, which we call helpers, with weak backhaul links but large storage capacity. These helpers form a wireless distributed caching network that assists the macro base station by handling(More)
A comprehensive statistical model is described for ultrawideband (UWB) propagation channels that is valid for a frequency range from 3-10 GHz. It is based on measurements and simulations in the following environments: residential indoor, office indoor, builtup outdoor, industrial indoor, farm environments, and body area networks. The model is independent of(More)
This paper presents an overview of UWB propagation channels. It first demonstrates how the frequency selectivity of propagation processes causes fundamental differences between UWB channels and ”conventional” (narrowband) channels. The concept of pathloss has to be modified, and well-known WSSUS model is not applicable anymore. Next, describe deterministic(More)
Video on-demand streaming from Internet-based servers is becoming one of the most important services offered by wireless networks today. In order to improve the area spectral efficiency of video transmission in cellular systems, small cells heterogeneous architectures (e.g., femtocells, WiFi off-loading) are being proposed, such that video traffic to(More)
We consider multiple-input multiple-output(MIMO) systems with reduced complexity. Either one, or both, link ends choose the best L out of N available antennas. This implies that only L instead of N transceiver chains have to be built, and also the signal processing can be simplified. We show that in ideal channels, full diversity can be achieved, and also(More)
We consider the capacity of multiple-input multiple-output systems with reduced complexity. One link-end uses all available antennas, while the other chooses the L out of N antennas that maximize capacity. We derive an upper bound on the capacity that can be expressed sa sthe sum of the logarithms of ordered chi-square-distributed variables. This bound is(More)
