This paper compares indoor and outdoor LTE network performance at 700 MHz. The authors collect data using commercial test equipment on a commercially deployed 2?2 MIMO LTE network in a campus environment. The purpose of the study is to determine performance of LTE MIMO for indoor users from transmit antennas that are outdoors as compared to performance from transmit antennas that are indoors. To characterize performance, the typical method is to compare throughput and common LTE key performance indicators. In this paper, they also study the relationship of these performance indicators to throughput performance. In this way, the value of performance indicators can be estimated. The conclusion of this study is that most of the key performance indicators show a positive correlation to throughput.
