Narrowband indoor communication channels can be characterised by statistical distributions. The Rayleigh and Ricean distributions are commonly used to describe measured channels, but in some instances, other distributions may be found to be more appropriate for the task. Determining the reason for one particular distribution being more appropriate for one environment over another may be a non-trivial task, In order to assist in this process, a channel simulation based on the physical structure of the environment is presented, along with narrowband results, obtained both from measurement and simulation experiments. Using these results, the basis for a Nakagami distributed channel, observed in some indoor communication environments, will be shown.
