Outdoor-to-Indoor Channel Measurements and Models



Catherine A. Remley, Christopher L. Holloway, David W. Matolak


This document reports on wireless channel measurements and models for outdoor to indoor propagation environments. Although there have been a number of publications that have recently appeared on this topic, e.g., [1], [2], and references therein, the amount of work that has been published is far less than that regarding traditional cellular (outdoor-to-outdoor) and indoor channels. In addition, as far as we are aware, no standardized models for this type of channel yet exist. In this brief report we provide an initial channel model based upon field-test measurements.
