In this paper, we design a pilot outdoor wireless network based on IEEE 802.11b standard for HealthCare Applications through computer simulation. The purpose is to demonstrate the use of computer simulation in designing outdoor wireless networks. We use a free software tool called Radio Mobile and freely available geographical elevation data downloaded from NASA to determine the radio frequency (RF) coverage of a wireless networking base-station and radio link performance. Furthermore, we demonstrate the flexibility of computer simulation in assessing design alternatives.
