ABSTRACT

This paper shows a comparison between theoretical and experimental coverage analysis. Theoretical work is based on Okumura-Hata propagation model, which are compared with the measured data obtained through an experimental analysis en México City. It is important because all the network designers and managers have to take in account how the signals will arrive to the mobile devices. If they know it, they can install Nodes B (base stations) in the better place in the area in order to take advantage of the power radiated by the antenna.
