Interference can reduce coverage, capacity and throughput by desensitizing receivers, increasing noise floors, and lowering signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). These conditions can prevent the use of higher modulation coding schemes and efficient resource block allocation as LTE schedulers attempt to avoid impacted spectrum. Detecting and isolating interference can be both challenging and time-consuming.
Interference hunting is a three step process:
- detecting interference/performance degradation
- identifying the type of interference, and
- locating the interference source.
In this webinar, we discuss simple step-by-step processes to help RF engineers and technicians understand how to detect, identify and isolate interference issues.
