Wireless communication technologies have been undergoing rapid advancements, however there are several challenges that still need to be addressed. This book provides a comprehensive guide on the new ideas and results in the areas of mobile ad hoc networks, sensor networks and other ad hoc and ubiquitous computing systems, all in the wireless communication technology field. Wireless ad hoc networks and ubiquitous computing are explored by leading experts in the field from both academia and industry, with various challenges in diverse environments, standards, routing mechanisms, etc. This comprehensive book features in-depth descriptions of terminologies and concepts related to the diverse subject areas in wireless communication.This wide-ranging text will be a valuable reference for researchers, students, instructors, engineers, and strategists seeking the state of the art in the field.188.8.131.52 Wireless Signal Propagation Models Once nodes are placed, it is required to determine which links in the network ... For instance, the popular simulator ns2 , if used with the shadowing propagation model, calculates SNIR ratio at the receiver at the start of packet reception and that decides whether the packet is successfully received or not, ignoring the packet coding and bit errors probabilities.
