Abstract — We propose and parameterize an empirical model of the outdoor-to-indoor and indoor-to-indoor distributed (cooperative) radio channel, using experimental data in the 2.4 GHz band. In addition to the well-known physical effects of path loss, shadowing, and fading, we include several new aspects in our model that are specific to multi-user distributed channels: (i) correlated shadowing between different point to point links which has a strong impact on cooperative system performance, (ii) different types of indoor node mobility with respect to the transmitter and/or receiver nodes, implying a distinction between static and dynamic shadowing motivated by the measurement data, and (iii) a small-scale fading distribution that captures more severe fading than given by the Rayleigh distribution.
