Analysis and experimental evaluation of the frequency response of an indoor radiating cable in the UHF band uri icon


  • © 2015, Sesena-Osorio et al.; licensee Springer.We present the modeling of the frequency response of the channel for a radiating cable system by using an autoregressive model for an indoor environment. The coefficients of the autoregressive model are determined from the experimental channel frequency response. Measurements were carried out in an indoor environment, in particular on the second floor of a university building in the frequency range of 1.3 to 1.8 GHz by using a vector network analyzer. It is demonstrated that the use of a second-order model provides a better representation of the behavior of the channel. In this context, the coherence bandwidth and the rms delay spread show dependence with the receiver position along the radiating cable length. This dependence is crucial and must be taken into account in the design and study of broadband systems with mobility because the rms delay spread and coherence bandwidth are used to describe the time dispersion and the frequency selectivity of the multipath fading channels, respectively.
