Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

As part of a larger project to assess the risk associated with the deployment of wireless equipment in electricity substations the BER performance of IEEE 802.11b and IEEE 802.11a in the presence of impulsive noise has been investigated. Middleton class A noise model is used to simulate impulsive noise environment and Simulink is used to simulate the WLAN physical layer. The observed degradation in performance is compared with that due to additive white Gaussian noise.
