  6. What’s Best? Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) Or 5G?

    Every time a new cellular phone standard comes out, we see new claims about the “end of Wi-Fi.” The 5G message is that it will cover homes and buildings both inside and outside. This begs the question: What will be the impact of the next generation of Wi‑Fi, Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax)? 

  7. White Paper: Modeling RF Propagation In Mines Using Wireless InSite

    This paper presents results from modeling RF propagation in a mine using Wireless InSite®. The Edgar Mine in Idaho Springs, CO provided the realistic scenario for the model. The path loss exponent was evaluated for a 5m section of the modeled mine by considering three different materials and three different standard deviation of surface roughness values for dry granite. When comparing this simulated data with data retrieved from the Edgar Mine it was determined that the Uniform Theory of Diffraction (UTD) ray tracing code, of Wireless InSite, can portray a communications system within a mine environment.

  8. White Paper: Complex 3D Modeling Of Sea To Land Scenario

    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.
