A Channel Propagation Model for the 700 MHz Band



Camillo A. Gentile, Nada T. Golmie, Catherine A. Remley, Christopher L. Holloway, William F. Young


Conversion from analog television in the United States combined with the appeal for broadband public safety communications is generating a lot of interest in the so-called 700 MHz band between 698-806 MHz. To our knowledge, no channel propagation model for this band exists to date. In this work, we derive such a model reduced from a measurement campaign realized through a stepped-frequency system. The campaign includes 89 transmitter-receiver configurations in seven different environments relevant to residential, commercial and public safety communications, ranging from subterranean mine tunnels to an oil refinery, from mid-size to high-rise buildings. The stochastic impulse response model is complete with 17 parameters which enables reconstruction for use in simulation engines, amongst others.
