Efficient Implementation and Evaluation of Parallel Radio Wave Propagation


F. Schröder, M. Reyer, R. Mathar,


        For planning, analysis, and optimization of modern, self organizing radio networks eld strength prediction plays an essential role. A huge number of predictions is needed for planning purposes while high quality and level of detail are important as well. In
this paper, we present a promising ray optical approach for radio wave propagation to meet those demands. As
the performance improvement of processors has shifted from higher clock speed to more cores, our redesign of a radio wave propagation algorithm supports parallel hardware architectures. In this work, we will present promising results based on our algorithm supporting the ray optical e ects re
ection and vertical di raction
at roof tops while allowing for multi path evaluation.
