RF Coverage Planning

  • Saleh Faruque
Part of the SpringerBriefs in Electrical and Computer Engineering book series (BRIEFSELECTRIC)


This chapter presents a brief overview of empirical propagation models and their practical applications along with deployment guidelines. It is shown that all propagation models exhibit equation of straight line within the Fresnel zone break point. A computer-aided design tool is presented as a student project.
