Coverage and capacity are extremely important for mobile communication and they are tightly coupled with quality installation of hardware components at cell sites. Macro Towers and In-building DAS solutions require the proper installation of antennas, cables, connectors, and other in-line components. Return Loss and Passive InterModulation (PIM) measurements are very crucial techniques to check quality installation of cellular networks. This course provides technical understanding of various line sweeping measurements including Return Loss, VSWR, Distance-to-Fault (DTF), Insertion Loss, and PIM. The course covers fundamentals, step-by-step procedures for efficient cell site troubleshooting and, introduction of measurement units and required hardware for cell site technician and tower climbers. Hands-on exercises using industry approved measurement units towards the end of the course help understand current field practices using effective line sweeping tools.
