Abstract
This paper presents an unified and empirical
propagation model to obtain the received power in mixed
scenarios, with outdoor and indoor environments, or in a
scenario with only one kind of environment, either for an urban,
sub-urban or rural scenario, with or without vegetation. This
unified model is called the Lisbon University Institute (LUI) one
and can be included into planning tools for wireless
communication systems. The developed model is suitable for Path
Loss prediction in mobile, as well as fixed wireless network
systems, e.g., Wireless Fidelity, Universal Mobile
Telecommunications System and Worldwide Interoperability for
Microwave Access, considering Line-of-Sight or Non-Line-of-
Sight propagation conditions.
