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.

This paper shows that FSO could be an option for backhauling among microcells in future 5G systems in areas where fog is not a concern as very short LOS links (few hundred meters) would be required. In this respect, monthly CCDFs of rain attenuation at both RF (28 GHz) and optical bandwidth have been calculated in the area of Hyderabad (Pakistan). FSO links with simple OOK modulation would be able to reach targeted data rate of hundreds of Gbps for 99.99% of time provided the link length is less than few hundreds of meters
