# Connectivity in an Urban Scenario

Calculate the propagation results for an urban scenario with eleven stationary transceivers.

## Model

The connectivity model represents a village area. Due to the level of detail in the buildings, it is called an urban scenario. Open the model with CoMan (Connectivity Manager).

## Nodes

There are eleven stationary transceivers at different positions. The omnidirectional antennas function as transceivers, which are denoted “nodes”. Ten client nodes and a gateway node are defined in CoMan to analyze the connectivity of the network. All nodes of the network are listed on the Nodes tab on the System Configuration dialog.

## Air Interface

^{1}for mesh/sensor networks.

## Computational Method

Wave propagation computation is computed for all the nodes by selecting .

In this model network predictions are computed for a horizontal prediction plane at a height of 1.5 m. The height of this plane is set on the Prediction tab.

Finally, connectivity is determined by clicking .## Results

Propagation results are computed for field strength and power for all the nodes and can be viewed at Connectivity_Example_Urban\results\propagation.

The connectivity between nodes can be viewed at Connectivity_Example_Urban\results\network. To view the connectivity between the nodes, activate Show Paths, and click on one of the nodes.
