New Rain Rate Statistics for Emerging Regions: Implications for Wireless Backhaul Planning

  title={New Rain Rate Statistics for Emerging Regions: Implications for Wireless Backhaul Planning},
  author={Paul M. Aoki},
As demand for broadband service increases in emerging regions, high-capacity wireless links can accelerate and cost-reduce the deployment of new networks (both backhaul and customer site connection). Such links are increasingly common in developed countries, but their reliability in emerging regions is questioned where very heavy tropical rain is present. Here, we investigate the robustness of the standard (ITU-R P.837-6) method for estimating rain rates using an expanded test dataset. We…

Functional Data Analysis for Rain Rate Statistics

Detailed rain rate frequency statistics (“How many minutes per year does this site receive more than x mm/hr of rain?”) have global applications but are only actually measured at a small number of



Connectivity evaluation and error performance of millimeter-wave wireless backhaul networks

The general trend in the backhaul link technology arena is the increasing use of high-speed microwave solutions, and a novel analytical and engineering propagation model is presented for the calculation of connectivity.

NECOP Propagation Experiment: Rain-Rate Distributions Observations and Prediction Model Comparisons

Empirical distribution functions for one-minute average rain-rate values were compiled for three station year of observations at Nigeria environmental and climatic observatory (NECOP) propagation

Rain Attenuation Prediction Using Frequency Scaling Technique at Tropical Region for Terrestrial Link

The radio waves propagates through the earth atmosphere will be attenuated due to presence of the atmosphere particles such as water vapor, water drops and the ice particles. Meantime the atmospheric

Empirically Derived Path Reduction Factor for Terrestrial Microwave Links Operating at 15 Ghz in Peninsula Malaysia

This paper describes the technique of deriving path reduction factor from experimental rain rate and rain attenuation data over seven DIGI MINI-LINKs operating at 15 GHz in Malaysia (Lat.: 1.45°N and

Rain Rate Measurements by Rain Gauges in Thailand

Information of the 1-minute rain rate distributions plays a vital role in prediction of rain attenuation at any location. Therefore, point rain rates measured over three years by a network of rain

Determination of Ku-band specific attenuation parameters based on measurements in the tropics

Attenuation due to rain is a critical constraint in the design of Earth-space links especially at frequencies higher than 10 GHz. Rain attenuation prediction models proposed by ITU-R were reported to

Rain attenuation measurements at 6.75 GHz in Malaysia

Investigation of several events shows that the rain rate is not uniform over a short distance (3 km) especially at high rain rates, and comparison of rain rates and attenuation with the International Radio Consultative Committee (CCIR) proposed model shows discrepancy especially at low percentages of time.

Abstract Some characteristics of rainfall rate relevant to the evaluation of microwave attenuation due to tropical rainfall are presented, making use of rain rate data collected with a rapid response

Global prediction of cumulative rainfall statistics from the simple knowledge of the yearly rain amount

An upgraded version of a one-parameter model for the prediction of the 1-minute Cumulative Distribution Function of rain rate (P(R)) is presented and tested. The model retains the analytical
