Abstract

This paper describes a deterministic model which simulates the radiowave propagation for UMTS in urban areas. The model is based on a UTD ray-tracing tool, using the mirror method. Meanwhile, channel impulse responses (CIRs) have been measured in order to validate the ray-tracing tool. Measurements have been carried out at 1.87 GHz in a street of Louvain-la-Neuve (Belgium) by means of a wideband channel sounder. Simulated and experimental results are presented and compared quite satisfactorily in spite of several limitations.
