ARAGON-ZAVALA, A. Novel measurement-based indoor cellular radio system design. Ing. invest. y tecnol. [online]. 2008, vol.9, n.1, pp. 31-48. ISSN 1405-7743.
A scaleable, measurement-based radio methodology has been created to use for the design, planing and optimisation of in door cellular radio systems. The development of this measurement-based methodology was performed having in mind that measurements are of ten required to valiate radio coverage in a building. Therefore, the concept of using care fully calibrated measurements to design and optimise a system is feasible since these measurements can easily be obtained prior to system deployment if appropriate guidelines and recommendations are elaborated for conducting these measurements. This is applicable for 2G and 3G systems alike, and interference management for the latter makes this requirement even more critical when planning an in door network. This paper presents in de tail this methodology, followed by examples of its use in real scenarios.
