Steerable array antennas are of significant interest to help meet the goals of 5G mobile communication systems. In this invited paper from Microwave Journal, we use a simple example of an 8x8 patch antenna array to demonstrate the usefulness of the CDF of EIRP to characterize the ability of an array to provide good EIRP in all directions.
This paper presents results from sea to land propagation using Wireless InSite. The effort explores the effects of various elements in the scene and how they impact the results. The various elements in the scene include the ships out at sea, the ships docked, the docks themselves, the buildings around the dock area, and the material properties of each.
Significant improvements in the quality and reliability of indoor WLAN communications are claimed for devices with MIMO technology applying 802.11n standards, which allow users to achieve a theoretical data rate up to 300-600 Mbps on a single transmission. This paper presents an analysis of a commercial 802.11n MIMO 2×3 dual band (2.4 and 5 GHz) system focusing on the operational throughput performance over an indoor environment for Line of Sight (LOS) and Non Line of Sight (NLOS) scenarios.
This study reports on the integration of a novel reconfigurable microstrip antenna capable of reconfiguring both its radiation pattern and frequency response onto a generic laptop computer structure. The purpose of such an exercise is to provide the relevant information necessary to integrate high performance antennas onto structures that can be used in ad hoc communication scenarios as well as other demanding applications.
