Channel characterization, channel statistics, delay spread, power delay profile, signal dispersion


Starting from outdoor transmission, crossing vegetation, the wideband and narrowband characterization of the indoor mobile radio channel in the 700 MHz band is obtained from experiments carried out in the indoor environment of the Engineering building at Fluminense Federal University, and from the processed data, respectively, the power-delay profiles obtained permitted to calculate the time dispersion parameters and the envelope of the signal permitted to adjust probability density functions to the signal variability, concluding about the influence of vegetation on those characteristics.
