Evaluation of Wireless Communication Based on BTS Antenna Gain
Radio wave propagation models are extremely important in radio network planning, design as well as in interference planning. All the models predict mean path loss as a function of different variables such as frequency, distance between transmitting and receiving antenna, antenna heights, etc. Radio propagation is essential for emerging technologies with appropriate design, deployment and management strategies for any wireless network. It is heavily site specific and can vary significantly depending on terrain, frequency of operation, velocity of mobile terminal, interface sources and other dynamic factor. Accurate characterization of radio channel through key parameters and a mathematical model is important for predicting signal coverage, achievable data rates, BER and Antenna gain.
