    Sunsight Instruments – RF Antenna Misalignment Effects on 4G

    RF Antenna Misalignment Effects on 4G/LTE Data Throughput Considerations for Maximizing Return on your Spectrum Investments Sunsight Instruments Technical White Paper Abstract This technical paper describes in detail the need for ensuring that the antenna position closely matches RF design specification at installation, and to have an accurate database of antenna position data for any wireless data network. We will discuss why proper alignment of antennas used in RF (Radio Frequency) mobile networks is important–specifically for newer technologies like 4G LTE, and describe the effect of misalignment on overall network data throughput. Network operators, engineers,…
