5 Wireless is already the Next Big Thing.
9 Wireless Technologies: What are they good for? Voice: telephony, radio networks. Data: wireless local area networks. Security: cameras. Video: still, full-motion. Building automation and control. Sensor telemetry. Tracking: GPS, RFID. Machine-to-Machine (M2M).

13 Frequency: The number of times per second a signal repeats. The term Hertz (abbreviated Hz) is used instead of cycles per second to honor the German scientist, Gustav Hertz. For example, middle C on a piano vibrates 256 times per second or 256 Hz.
14 Common Frequency Prefixes: At higher frequencies, prefixes are used to eliminate the need dto write out tthe entire number. Kilo = 1,000 (thousand) Mega = 1,000,000 (million) Giga = 1,000,000,000 (billion) Tera = 1,000,000,000,000 (trillion)
15 Licensed Radio Operations: A frequency or radio service that requires coordination with other users, the approval of the Federal Communications Commission and the issuing i of a radio license. Examples of licensed services: p Commercial AM/FM and TV stations Fire, police and EMS radios Some microwave systems
16 Unlicensed Radio Operations: Af frequency or radio service that does not require a license from the Federal Communications Commission. Examples of unlicensed services: Microwave ovens Cordless phones Citizen band and Family Radio Service Remote control cars and planes Garage door openers
17 Note that some radio systems may be a combination of licensed and unlicensed services. Companies that operate cell phone networks must have an FCC license, but the end-user just buys a phone and starts using it. In the United States, a pilot no longer needs a radio operator s license (but must get a license when flying into a foreign country).
18 Unlicensed operations are subject to FCC technical standards and specifications. However, assuming the equipment is operating correctly and meets FCC specifications, there is no protection from interference. The main subject of this course will be the unlicensed 2.4 GHz Industrial, Scientific, & Medical (ISM) band of frequencies. As the name ISM implies, many different types of equipment are designed to use the same frequencies. Under the right conditions this can lead to interference and poor communications.

60 Design Issues We Have Control Of: Suitable frequency or service Coverage (area) Capacity (simultaneous users) Bandwidth (applications) Transmitting power (may be regulated) Channel selection Cabling Electric power Signal security Physical security
61 Design Issues We Don t Have Control Of: Other users (same service or frequency) Building construction Signal reflection, deflection, refraction, etc. Rouge users (if no or weak security) Rouge WLAN access points (if access control not used)
63 Decibel: Gain (increase) or loss (decrease) of signal strength measured as a ratio against a standard or other reference value. The ratio is expressed mathematically as: db = 10 log 10 (P 1 /P 2 ) Example: log 10 (100/10) = 2 10 (2) = 20 db Common (power) db values to remember are: 3 db = times 2 increase or 1/2 decrease 6 db = times 4 increase or 1/4 decrease 20 db = times 10 increase or 1/10 decrease
64 Attenuation: Signal loss caused by transmission through a wire, the air, or objects located between the transmitter and the receiver.
65 Attenuation: Radio signals traveling through free space are attenuated according to a square law formula. Signal strength = q/r 2 Where q = signal source and r = distance from the source. double the distance and the signal decreases by a factor of f4( (or 1/4 of fits prior value).
66 Common Building Materials Attenuation at 2.4 GHz (all values are approximate) Glass (non-tinted)-2 to -3 db Wood door -3 db Systems furniture -3 to -5 db Dry wall (sheetrock) -3 to-4 db Marble -5 db Brick -8 db to -10 db Concrete (floor/wall) ll) -10 to -15 db
67 Design Issues: Received Signal Strength P =(P)(G r t t )(G r )(l/4πd) 2 Where: P r Received power P t Effective radiated power G t Antenna gain G r Receiver gain λ wavelength in meters π d pi ( ) distance in meters
68 Design Issues: Path Loss: Path Loss db = 20 log (4l/π)+10 log (d n ) Where: λ wavelength in meters π pi ( ) d distance in meters n = 2.0 free space. 2.7 to 3.5 outdoor urban areas. 3.0 to 5.0 shadowed outdoor urban areas. 1.6 to 1.8 in-building, direct line-of-sight. 30t 3.0 to 35i 3.5 in-building, ildi fabric covered partitions. 4.0 to 6.0 in-building, obstructed, office. 2.0 to 3.0 in-building, obstructed, warehouse.
69 Design Issues: Link Budget: P r = P t + G t + G r Path loss - L r Where: P r Received power P t Effective radiated power G t Antenna gain G r Receiver gain L R Receiver loss (noise figure)* *A common specification for receiver sensitivity is -93 db. That is, the signal at the receiver must be at least -93 db to be detected.
70 Typical WLAN Network Configuration
71 Site Survey For some radio systems a site survey can be done. This involves measuring the signal strength at specific locations or a given distance from a test t antenna. After the survey is completed a contour map is drawn. The lines on the map connect points of equal signal strength just as the lines on a weather map connect points of equal barometric pressure.
72 Site Survey Although this can be done for a WLAN it is much Although this can be done for a WLAN it is much more common to take a laptop and walk the building to determine where additional access points are needed to obtain reliable coverage in a given area.
73 (Relatively) Inexpensive Site Survey Tools
74 Wireless Networking Performance
75 There can be large differences between the specifications given in a manufacturer s data sheet and performance in the real world. Signal-to-noise ratio determines data rate. Coverage vs. Capacity Planning
79 WLAN Antennae
80 Rough Rules of Thumb Doubling the height of an antenna has approximately the same affect as increasing transmitter power by a factor of 10. BUT doubling the height of an antenna or increasing transmitting power by a factor of ten does not double the coverage area. As a rule of thumb, reliable operating range increases by approximately 30%.
