Implementation Of Wireless Channel Propagation Models In OPNET
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 40 credits / 60 HE creditsStudent thesis
In recent times, there has been a significant amount of research regarding the physical layer of wireless communications . The part of the physical layer, which cannot be ignored, is channel propagation. Different environments have different channels. Path loss, slow fading, fast fading and multipath fading are all involved in decisions regarding the condition of the channel . Based on related research, a number of empirical channel models are put forward to simulate a real environment with regards to communication and there are some simulation softwares that are able to implement those different channels. These include Matlab which is regarded as the best simulation software for the physical layer in wireless communication. OPNET is another network modeling simulation software, which could implement the entire process of the network communication, which Matlab is not able to complete . The network layer of OPNET is very mature and has the ability to implement different routing protocols. However, the description of the physical layer in OPNET is poor and there is only simple path loss model in pipeline modeling in OPNET. Thus, the objective of this thesis is to implement different channel models in OPNET and to make it capable to simulate in as close a manner as possible to a real environment.
