On the scatterers' mobility and second order statistics of narrowband fixed outdoor wireless channels
MetadataShow full item record
AbstractIn this paper, we study the temporal behavior of narrowband fixed outdoor wireless channels by modeling the impact of scatterers' mobility on the second order statistics of such channels. We show that the Nakagami-m, gamma, Weibull and lognormal probability density functions (PDFs) can adequately approximate the scatterers' mobility at outdoor environments by comparing the theoretically derived autocorrelation functions (ACFs) with measured ACFs. These theoretical ACFs arise after considering several candidate PDFs for the impact of scatterers mobility. We select that PDF whose ACF provides the best fitting to measurements. The modeling of scatterers' mobility lead us to present analytical expressions for the level crossing rate (LCR) and average fade duration (AFD) together with an exact expression for the power spectral density (PSD).
