An improved channel model for mobile and ad-hoc network simulations Conference Paper uri icon


  • In this paper we propose a low complexity fading channel model for use in Mobile and Ad Hoc Network (MANET) simulations. While numerous fading channel models exist, our model provides accurate performance across a wide range of signal to noise ratio (SNR) values while requiring minimal operational complexity and is applicable for large, multi-node simulations. This work presents a unique four-state Markov channel model for simulating correlated channel errors and presents its statistical accuracy and network performance.
