Smart grid services require reliable and efficient communication, which can be provided by modern cellular networks. However, smart grid components are often installed in environments that are challenging for radio networks, like energy meters in basements. While grid operators need to know the availability of cellular networks before installing components, current methods for evaluating mobile network coverage in such environment usually require lengthy tests or expensive and complicated… CONTINUE READING
