Optimised Antenna Radiation Patterns Reduce Overall Network Iinterference
Mobile network users always look for the best quality of service (QoS). The QoS depends on many factors
such as the technology, the coverage, the capacity of the mobile network, etc. Interference is a factor
as important as coverage because while there is less interference, there is better QoS.
The traditional antennas for the mobile networks generate interferences but the intensity of these interferences
depends on its radiation pattern. The choice of suitable antennas is important to provide good
Mentum Planet™ tool support advanced antennas (E.g. Multi-beam antennas, Quad-pole antennas, multi-sector
configurations) and offer a good representation of physical antennas (E.g. modelling of antenna
ports, e-controllers, etc.). This tool has the available Antenna Editors, and lets you organize, view, and
manage all elements of the antenna system.
This white paper explores how Mentum Planet™ Tool can be used to make a comparison between different
models of antennas and is broken down into the following sections:
- What is network interference and why it is important to reduce interference to operators?
- Why an optimized antenna is better than a non-optimized antenna?
- How can Mentum Planet Tool be used to verify the advantages of an optimized antenna?
