Evaluation of Power Budget and Cell Coverage Range in Cellular GSM System


AbstractThe paper deals with study of affecting parameters on the communication performance and the coverage range of the cell, and thereafter on the efficient coverage of the intended area. The coverage starts within the basic unit (the cell), by estimating the affecting parameters on the signal power level in the uplink and downlink at the worst practical circumstances (the mobile station at the cell boundary, or in a high fading region), taking into consideration the factors causing fading and other losses is the signal power. Keywords: Cellular system, Power Budget, cell range.
