Abstract:

Lately, the development of mobile communications connected with the exponential growth of social media applications and their usage imposed in the telecom market an acute need for coverage and services. Due to objective or subjective reasons, in some areas it might be possible to have a lack of coverage with signal or services. Since the price of electronic equipments capable of enhancing the coverage decreased dramatically, the end-users can acquire a RF repeater in order to improve the coverage of the network in a specific area. Even though at a first sight, introducing RF repeaters in the mobile networks looks benefical, looking in more detail it can be observed that the draw-backs are bigger, due to the fact that they can introduce interferences in the networks. This study tries to evaluate the impact of a RF repeater over a cellular network (GSM and WCDMA), through simulations in SEAMCAT©.
