Propagation Characteristics Study for an Indoor Wireless Communication Environment using Smart Mobile Antenna
The paper introduces the finite element method based numerical model for prediction of the wave propagation using smart mobile antenna for the indoor radio environment. The important channel characteristics, such as the electric field intensity, is examined in a typical office area. Several simulations are preformed according to different placements of the transmitting antenna. To validate the numerical result, an experimental method using Network Stumbler software is employed to measure the signal strength in different location. Both numerical and experimental results present a good agreement.
