Optimizing Small Wideband Antenna Performance for Both RIMP and Random-LOS
Paper in proceedings, 2015
Rich Isotropic Multipath (RIMP) environment like
reverberation chamber (RC) has proven to be useful for
characterizing mobile LTE devices. The user statistics have larger effect in environments with stronger Line-Of-Sight (LOS), because the angle of arrival (AoA) and the polarization of the LOS contribution become randomized due to the user. Thus, we introduce the term Random-LOS. The present paper elaborates on characterization of an example antenna in both RIMP and random-LOS. We show how to characterize the micro BTS by the probability of detection (PoD) of one and more bitstreams in both RIMP and random-LOS, by considering the user randomly located and oriented within the angular coverage sector. We limit the treatment to a wall-mounted BTS antenna, and assume a desired hemi-spherical coverage.
