VISIBLE WINDOW IMAGE RAY TRACING METHOD TO MODEL RADIO WAVE PROPAGATION IN FEMTOCELLULAR WIRELESS COMMUNICATION

Abstract
In this paper, we present the simulation of the characteristics of radio wave propagation in femto-cellular wireless communication environment. The first aim has been to find a correct description of the environment for received wave. The result of the first investigations is that the environment of the indoor wave significantly changes as we change the electric parameters of material constructions. A modified 3D ray tracing image method tool has been utilized which called Visible Window Image Method (VWIM) for the coverage prediction. A detailed analysis about the behavior of the rays using the electromagnetic wave propagation mechanism classification as Line of sight rays, reflected rays, transmitted rays, and diffracted rays are considered.
