This paper presents a novel algorithm to emulate the Rician K-factor of a wireless communication environment using a reverberation chamber.

Abstract

This paper presents a novel algorithm to emulate the Rician K-factor of a wireless communication environment using a reverberation chamber. In particular, it was focused on the frequency bands used by 5G technology for data transmission. Unlike the current state of the art, the increase of the Rician K-factor is not achieved by inserting lossy material in the chamber, but through the proposed algorithm, which selects a subset of electromagnetic field realizations inside the chamber. The algorithm was first applied to the results of a simulation obtained by using an analytical model that predicts the main physical quantities inside a rectangular cavity where a multiple monopole source stirring action is implemented. Subsequently, the robustness of the algorithm and its applicability was tested on a set of data retrieved from experimental measurements. In all of the considered scenarios, the validity of the proposed method was demonstrated.
