Topic: Pathloss Propagation Prediction For Dryland And Wetland Environment Using Software Based Solutions
Rigorous and extensive outdoor measurement for mobile phone base stations in dryland and wetland areas of Lagos city, Nigeria will be performed. In order to determine a fine model that can accurately predict the propagation environment a number of well-known models will be compared with field measurement. These field measurements will allow for an extension of well-known path loss prediction models from their established 4G cellular frequency. Practical conclusion will be derived confirming among others the pathloss exponent in urban, suburban and rural dryland and wetland propagation environment for specific topology characteristics.

A HATA PROPAGATION BASED MODEL IN SUBURBAN WETLAND AND SUBURBAN DRYLAND IN LAGOS TERRAI
Accurate and reliable path loss prediction models are highly significant and they play major roles in determining where wireless communication networks are to be deployed. Simple soft Programming techniques will be exploited for path loss predictions in wetland and dryland propagation environments. Hence, in this paper, we present a customized and novel web-based propagation application for radio path loss predictions in wetland and dryland environment using JAVA script programming language. First, Received Signal Strength (RSS) and path losses in a specific Radio Access Network (RAN) within wetland and dryland propagation environment are obtained through a drive test measurement approach. A new model for radio path loss propagation known as SOUP (Software for Outdoor Propagation) has been developed for predictions in a built-up propagation environment. The study has developed a Hata path loss model and outdoor measurements using LTE GSM frequency at 700MHz. The model has been used and validated for suburban wetland and dryland Lagos. The values of modified empirical parameters of the Hata model are developed for the use of telecommunication providers in Nigeria to improve their service delivery to mobile users’ satisfaction in wetland and dryland terrains while keeping the quality of service at high rate without any loss of generality of the system.
