Abstract

This paper investigates the problem of finding the optimal access point placement in simultaneous broadcast system using orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) for public access wireless LAN with micrometer or millimeter frequency band. We define our design criteria such that the quality of service is provided uniformly throughout a given service area. The optimal access point placement with a uniform quality of service was obtained by setting the cost function as the combination of a standard deviation of BER and the average of BER in a very fast simulated annealing algorithm. We applied the algorithm to the cases of fixed and mobile terminals, and obtained optimal access point placement results for both cases.
