Radio network planning and dimensioning have significant impact on the overall system capacity of the cellular communication systems. Various commercial network planning and dimensioning tools with different radio signal propagation models implemented are available on the market. Their price and especially inflexibility led us to look for an open-source solution. The present paper describes usage of the open-source Geographical Resources Analysis Support System (GRASS) for the radio signal… CONTINUE READING
