Based on a rigorous and validated full-wave method, we presented the extraction of statistical parameter (i.e. K-factor) for an indoor site-specific environment. These extracted statistics were subsequently used to compute the bit error rate (BER), useful for providing guidelines to network throughput. In this paper, we also provided useful information pertaining to site-planning via BER over our analyzed fading channel at different transmitting locations. It was further conjectured that an optimum transmitting position exists for different propagation channels. Finally, we verified that propagation paths obstructed with chairs resulted in a Rayleigh fading channel whereas line-of-sight channels could be modeled by Ricean distributions.
