LTE Network Planning Using the Hata-Okumura and the COST-231 Hata Pathloss Models

Long Time Evolution (LTE) is a standard for wireless communication of high-speed data for mobile terminal; it is based on the GSM/EDGE and UMTS/HSPA network technologies, increasing the capacity and speed using a different radio interface together with core network improvement. This paper takes a look at two of the most common radio propagation models used in determining the radio coverage, with regards to Long Time Evolution, LTE. These models are the Okumura-Hata and the COST-231 Hata models. A comparative analysis through mathlab simulation for both models at different frequencies and base station heights are looked into.
