ABSTRACT

A new improvement approach to Lafortune-Lecours indoor propagation model is presented. Taking into consideration; different types of walls that have been not considered in the model. The concrete and brick walls cause considerable severe signal deterioration when they obstruct the transmission path of the signal. Improvement of the above mentioned model is achieved by computing the path loss through those kinds of obstructions by adding some parameters and terms to the existing model.
