Abstract

This paper presents the results of an investigation into the wideband propagation characteristics of four different indoor operational environments within the 5.2 GHz band using a swept time-delay cross-correlator (STDCC) channel sounder. For each environment the cumulative distribution of delay spread for both omni-directional and a 20 dB horn antenna are presented. It is shown that a suitably aligned narrowbeam antenna makes possible to achieve delay spread reduction through spatial filtering. The effects of moving people and different room transmission situations are also presented.
