Radio systems have evolved from simple voice transmitters and receivers to very complex systems that require detailed and careful engineering to ensure coverage over the desired territory and modes that the customer requires.
The scarcity of free channels within a given geographical space is a standard issue including incurred interference.
Awareness of changing standards, groundwork experience for accurate estimates and the implications of involved market movement are necessary for effective design.
Radio System Solutions are complex planned projects that require technical forethought, equipment selection, data analysis and pre-testing. Multi-disciplined team involvement in the project from the start is required from the preliminary site review and surveys to project management of each phase, all the way through to inspection and closeout documentation.
The common near-far issue relates to devices that operate on varying coverage zone, while it is serviced by antennas or towers that are not nearby. This specialised equipment must work overtime to transport data as the mobile device communicates with the macro network.
These may include noise, surrounding buildings, fortified construction etc. When possible, interferences can be removed, but most of the time, it is optimal to work around interferences. Surveys are key since solutions and further issues can be avoided.
Technology has evolved and the usage of mobile data has increased, it is important to look towards the future when designing these systems so that it remains efficient over the long haul. It is crucial to plan towards ensuring future traffic and wireless network demands can be met by the system.
