An Introduction to Interference Hunting

A new whitepaper lays out an introduction to interference hunting at mobile cell sites.

introduction to interferenceInterference in the Radio Access Network is ubiquitous and becoming more critical as the deployment of the latest cellular standards brings increased sensitivity and subsequent degradation of network capacity and subscriber Quality of Experience.

There are several different ways of analysing interference, and interference hunting often requires a combination of these analysis methods.

This white paper starts from the basics then examines the different sources of interference in mobile networks and describes a practical approach to the analysis of interferers and the tools used in the field to perform interference hunting.
