To acquire a knowledge of radio propagation characteristics in the microcellular environments for personal communications services (PCS), a comprehensive measurement program was conducted by Telesis Technologies Laboratory (nZ) in the San Francisco Bay area using three base station antenna heights of 3.2 m, 8.7 m, and 13.4 m and two frequencies at 900 MHz(More)
A vertical-plane-launch (VPL) technique for approximating a full three dimensional (3-D) site-specific ray trace to predict propagation effects in cities for frequencies in the 300MHz–3-GHz band is described and its predictions are compared with measurements for Rosslyn, VA. The VPL technique employs the standard shoot and bounce method in the horizontal(More)
Ray-tracing based radio wave propagation prediction models play an important role in the design of contemporary wireless networks as they may now take into account diverse physical phenomena including reflections, diffractions, and diffuse scattering. However, such models are computationally expensive even for moderately complex geographic environments. In(More)
Building footprint simplification is of critical importance to radio propagation predictions in wireless communication systems as the prediction time is closely related to the number of both buildings and vertices involved. Intuitively, if the complexity of footprints (i.e., the number of vertices in the footprints) is reduced, predictions can be generated(More)
