This is a discussion document for the IEEE document of the IEEE 802.15.4a channel modeling subgroup. It provides models for the following frequency ranges and environments: for UWB channels dovering the frequency range from 2 to 10 GHz, it covers indoor residential, indoor office, industrial, outdoor, and open outdoor environments (usually with a(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)
Recently, millimeter-wave radio has attracted a great deal of interest from academia, industry, and global standardization bodies due to a number of attractive features of millimeter-wave to provide multi-gigabit transmission rate. This enables many new applications such as high definition multimedia interface (HDMI) cable replacement for uncompressed video(More)
This paper presents an overview of 60 GHz technology and its potentials to provide next generation multigigabit wireless communications systems. We begin by reviewing the state-of-art of the 60 GHz radio. Then, the current status of worldwide regulatory efforts and standardization activities for 60 GHz band is summarized. As a result of the worldwide(More)
Non-line-of-sight (NLOS) identification and mitigation carries significant importance in wireless positioning systems. In this paper, the authors propose a novel NLOS identification technique based on the multipath channel statistics such as the kurtosis, the mean excess delay spread, and the root mean square delay spread. In particular, the IEEE 802.15.4a(More)
