Cost 259

Inheritance diagram of

The Cost 259 channel model is a generic model for the simulation of mobile radio channels. Refer to Molisch et al.[1] and Asplund et al.[2] for more information. Parametrizations can be found in the standard Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS); Deployment aspects[3].

The following minimal example outlines how to configure the channel model within the context of a Simulation:

class Cost259(model_type=Cost259Type.URBAN, gain=1.0, los_angle=None, doppler_frequency=None, los_doppler_frequency=None, **kwargs)[source]

Bases: MultipathFadingChannel

Cost action 259 multipath fading channel model.

  • model_type (Cost259Type) – The model type.

  • gain (float, optional) – Linear power gain factor a signal experiences when being propagated over this realization. \(1.0\) by default.

  • los_angle (float, optional) – Angle phase of the line of sight component within the statistical distribution.

  • doppler_frequency (float, optional) – Doppler frequency shift of the statistical distribution.

  • **kwargs (Any) – MultipathFadingChannel initialization parameters.


ValueError – If model_type is not supported. If los_angle is defined in HILLY model type.

classmethod to_yaml(representer, node)[source]

Serialize a serializable object to YAML.

  • representer (SafeRepresenter) – A handle to a representer used to generate valid YAML code. The representer gets passed down the serialization tree to each node.

  • node (Serializable) – The MultipathFadingCost256 instance to be serialized.

Return type:


Returns: The serialized YAML node.

property model_type: Cost259Type

Access the configured model type.

Returns: The configured model type.

class Cost259Type(value, names=None, *, module=None, qualname=None, type=None, start=1, boundary=None)[source]

Bases: SerializableEnum
