The Impact Of Return Loss On Base Station Coverage In Mobile Networks

In many cases of designing and building cellular infrastructure, there are variables that the installers are and are not able to control. Important variables that are controllable are the losses in the cable feed system due to reflections and absorption. This white paper focuses on the system losses due to reflections, which can be measured using a cable and an antenna analyzer such as the Anritsu Site Master. Download the full paper to understand more on the impact that this loss has on base station coverage in mobile networks, how to calculate it, and ways to improve on system performance.
