A Floor Description Language as a Tool in the Process of Wireless Network Design

Conference paper
Part of the Communications in Computer and Information Science book series (CCIS, volume 39)


The paper describes a Floor Description Language (FDL) which could be used as a key chain in the process of wireless network design. Traditional ways of designing wireless networks are also presented. Numerical results and comparison with commercial systems summarizes the paper and proves FDL’s usability.
