Abstract

To engage any nation in wealth creation, human capacity development and improved standard of living, the need arises to install trendy technological innovations and efficient infrastructures such as reliable and efficient telecommunication systems. This paper therefore, investigates large scale propagation models used to predict the mean signal strength for an arbitrary transmitter-receiver separation distance with the aim of improving the telecommunication system infrastructure which will engender sustainable infrastructure and technology. The study has been conducted in an urban settlement in the Ikorodu – Epe region to develop and optimize a suitable propagation model based on the existing propagation models. The proposed propagation models are the Free Space Path Loss Propagation Model, Okumura – Hata Model, COST 231 Model, SUI Model and Ericsson Model. The optimized COST 231 model showed better performance and is proposed for propagation prediction involving such terrain. Root Mean Square Error (RMSE) statistical tool was used to achieve the optimization
