AVOIDING COLLISIONS: ADDING DETERMINISM TO MY NETWORK

Tech

  Authors Xavier Bush Jesper Lindström Dr. Mathias Bohge Prof. James Gross   In the previous blog post, we dug into the wireless propagation effects, how they challenge reliable communications and how EchoRing™ deals with them. We learned that the electromagnetic waves attenuate, and suffer from shadowing and fading, which adds much difficulty at the […]

WIRELESS PROPAGATION EFFECTS AND THEIR IMPACT ON RELIABLE TRANSMISSIONS

Tech

  Authors Xavier Bush Jesper Lindström Dr. Mathias Bohge Prof. James Gross   As mentioned in the introduction blog entry of last week, we start this series of blog posts by explaining the random effects occurring purely from the so-called wireless propagation environment itself. These random effects have a big impact on every signal sent […]
