Numerical and Experimental Investigations of Base Station Antenna Height on Cellular Network Coverage

Abstract : A test setup is deployed to study the influence of base station antenna height on the cellular network coverage. Both the numerical and experimental investigations are undertaken to evaluate the received electric field levels for different heights of the transmitting (TX) antenna and several distances between the transmitter and the receiver. The numerical simulation results demonstrate that when the TX antenna is mounted high above the ground, more fluctuations are induced in the electric field levels, resulting in possible dead zones for mobile communications. The measured received levels and data rates confirm the numerical simulation results. © 1963-2012 IEEE.
