COMPUTE RF BEHAVIOR AND MIMO 7 Compute RF Behavior Calculate each of the five measurements in the project by performing every step in sequence. In your own words, summarize what you have learned concerning RF behavior. Calculations Step 4 (dBm of 1W): ____30 dB ____________ Step 11 (max gain): __-81.538 dB __________ Step 15 (.11g free space loss): 0.9434762150796663 dB Step 17 (.11a free space loss) -5.474469367710745 dB Step 19 (link budget): ____________________ Summary of RF Behavior In your own words, summarize what you have learned concerning RF behavior from your calculations, readings, and research. Begin section here RF behavior use to be a mysterious topic before seeing these calculations. Using calculations like these are a necessity for setting up a wireless network or to even to help optimize current networks. Working with wireless is a completely different “animal” compared to traditional wired networks but some of the concepts are very similar especially dealing with signal loss. 7

COMPUTE RF BEHAVIOR AND MIMO 8 MIMO Introduction What is MIMO? What’s the history? What issues are addressed? What are the goals? MIMO is multiple-input, multiple-output. Basically devices use multiple radio devices within one device to communicate from. More radio devices can equate to faster speeds and can support 802.11n. Using multiple radios can also create redundancy. Advantages and Disadvantages of MIMO Identify all advantages and disadvantages of MIMO. The main advantages are faster speeds, increased capacity, and robustness. The main disadvantage is that it is complex.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
