Abstract

The effective performance of LTE network is analyzed using signal strength measurements in fading environments. It is one of the primary experimental methodologies for planning and designing a cellular network for given coverage area. In this paper, we present the divergence of path loss between two environments i.e. indoor and outdoor and its effect on coverage and capacity very effectively. The received signal strength and data transfer rate is analyzed at different locations for user’s satisfaction. Standard deviation of signal with path loss exponents are calculated based on received signal strength in the operating network areas. It is in the range of 4 to 5.3 in the vicinity of entire urban areas. Path loss using indoors and outdoors model were analyzed effectively and presented. Based on the received signal strength a new path loss model is proposed to meet the requirements of current environment for tuning the path loss model. It is also suggested that, the removal of permanent object within the vicinity of 200 m in front of antenna is considerably a better solution of propagation of signal. The improvement of 27 dBm signal strength around 14 km area is presented with well-installed network if antenna is free from clutter zone. The analyzed parameter may be very effective for 5G communication considering a future network of this era.
