Antenna Selection for the Femtocell Communication Signal for Network Connectivity
The studies report on the selection of antenna for femtocell cellular base station application. We have categorized the influential signal lost factors into four core elements that were experiences by the users. We have conducted measurement on Received Signal Strength Indicator (RSSI) parameter in the campus environment and outline the steps and techniques of such research activity. Our studies show that certain type of antenna that have been use by provider at the base station to connect a single network connection might not be able to support for reliable Internet network connectivity for critical communication device.. Hence, the technique to select antenna type for the communication module could be an effective solution to combat the issue on signal lost for GSM, CDMA2000, TD-SCDMA, WiMAX and LTE solutions providers.
