The Applications Examples library contains a variety of demonstrations that explain how Remcom engineers solved problems in categories ranging from antenna design and placement, biomedical, wireless communications, microwave circuits, radio wave propagation, and more.
The millimeter wave frequencies being planned for 5G systems pose challenges for channel modeling. At these frequencies, surface roughness impacts wave propagation, causing scatter in non-specular directions that can have a large effect on received signal strength and polarization. To accurately predict channel characteristics for millimeter wave frequencies, propagation modeling must account for diffuse scattering effects. Wireless InSite’s diffuse scattering capability is based on Degli-Esposti’s work.
