ABSTRACT To model the fast-fading statistics of the wireless transmission channel in indoor peer-to-peer scenarios, an amplitude distribution composed of three distinct components was investigated. They correspond to line-of-sight, once-reflected and twice-reflected propagation paths. It is shown experimentally that this distribution matches indoor peer-to-peer links better than the available alternatives. Furthermore, an interesting structure in the parameter space of the distribution is pointed out, leading to a simple stochastic parameterisation based on a three-modal normal distribution.

    ABSTRACT: In this review paper, a number of recent contributions in the field of multi-link propagation are presented and analyzed, with a particular focus on beyond next generation wireless communication networks. Advances in channel sounding, characterization and modeling are described in three areas: (i) regarding cooperative channel fading statistics, the impact of node mobility is highlighted; (ii) metrics for characterizing the separation between multiple single- and/or multi-antenna channels are detailed; (iii) new geometry-based approaches with multi-link capabilities, including WINNER and COST models, are presented and compared. Finally, a couple of key features not sufficiently included in current models are discussed.

    ABSTRACT: We experimentally characterize nomadic peer-to peer channels in a multi-wall indoor office environment. In particular, we derived models of path-loss, shadowing and fading statistics at 3.8 GHz in fixed scenarios, and compare them with existing results. Highlights of the paper include a multi-wall path loss model, the separation between obstruction, nomadic, and dynamic shadowing, a dynamic shadowing correlation model, as well as a multi-link analysis of MIMO links.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, we present a novel probabilistic protocol (COKE) to allow two wireless communicating parties to commit over-the-air (OTA) on a shared secret, even in the presence of a globally eavesdropping adversary. The proposed solution leverages no crypto but just plaintext messages exchange. Indeed, the security of the solution relies on the difficulty for the adversary to correctly identify, for each one-bit transmission, the sender of that bit-not its value, which is indeed exchanged in cleartext. Due to the low requirements of COKE (essentially, the capability to send a few wireless messages), it is particularly suited for resource constrained wireless devices (e.g., WNSs, wireless embedded systems), as well as for those scenarios where just energy saving is at premium, such as smartphones.
