It is becoming clear that 5G wireless systems will encompass frequencies from around 500 MHz all the way to around 100 GHz. To adequately assess the performance of 5G systems in these different bands, path loss (PL) models will need to be developed across this wide frequency range. The PL models can roughly be broken into two categories, ones that have some anchor in physics, and ones that curve- match only over the data set without any physical anchor. In this paper we use both real-world… CONTINUE READING
