GTC (GPU Technology Conference), 2013

Abstract: Prediction of radio frequency (RF) energy propagation in the presence of complex outdoor terrain features - urban environments, for example - is of great interest when planning, optimizing and analyzing wireless networks. A tool for fast prediction could improve network coverage, provide estimates of signal strength throughout the environment, estimate time delay of multipath signals, and provide data for power allocation in the deployed transmitters. Such a tool is essential when planning networks that need to be set up quickly for temporary purposes.
