1. A device, comprising:
a processor; and
a memory that stores executable instructions that, when executed by the processor, facilitate performance of operations, comprising:
based on location data of two transceivers, determining, within a modeled space that models a physical space, a Fresnel zone of the two transceivers;
defining, within the modeled space, a group of rectangles that are situated along a line of sight between the two transceivers and overlap the Fresnel zone of the two transceivers, wherein a rectangle of the group of rectangles is oriented according to cardinal directions of the modeled space;
requesting, from a data store, modeled objects, representative of physical objects of the physical space, that are determined to be in a buffer region, representing a combination of the group of rectangles, which overlaps the Fresnel zone; and
determining whether the signal is obstructed based on the modeled objects received from the data store.
