Research Institution
We propose to develop a next generation radio frequency network channel emulator simulator tool called RFnest-48 that can evaluate a fully-connected wireless mesh network consisting of up to 48 nodes represented using physical devices ("real"nodes) and 200 nodes simulated in software ("virtual"nodes). The virtual and real nodes interact seamlessly through additional devices ("surrogate"nodes) that represent the interference on virtual nodes due to real nodes, and vice-versa. RFnest-48 uses a combination of direct digital conversion and an RF front-end design that can support incoming frequencies between DC and 3 GHz.
