In this publication a link loss prediction model for fixed outdoor urban wireless WiFi communications using the 2.45 GHz frequency band based on the Okumura-Hata model is proposed. The model evaluates the expected path losses using a modified Okumura’s prediction model and eye inspection of the link to determine the degree of obstruction. Results are checked against experimental data to find that in 90% of the studied links it is accurate within a 5 dB margin. We also analyze the coherence time of these links by performing long term measurements of the received signal.
