Channel Sounding UsingUSRP2 & GNU-RADIO

Report
Channel Impulse Response And Coherence Bandwidth
Estimation
Under :Prof S.N Merchant
SPANN LAB,IIT Bombay
By:Rohit Sharma
Jay Prakash
Why?:- Motivation
Increased Use of
Wireless Devices
Data-Intensive High
Bandwidth Services
Strain in capacity of
RF Spectrum
Most Communication becomes impractical above 10GHZ in Microwave Region.
Multipath Effects of Channel
Multiple propagation paths:
Line-of-Sight (LoS) and
NLoS Invites Multipath
invites:Scattering,
Reflection,
 Diffraction.
Channel Becomes:Frequency dependent,
Time dependent and
Position dependent.
Ultimately Coherence Bandwidth is adversely affected.
