Abstract


The mobile operators often use point-to-point microwave connections for feeder links in their access network. Now as the  microwave signal propagates, it might get trapped between different atmospheric layers called duct that no doubt affects received signal level (RSL) at the receiving station. This paper presents a short description of Microwave link optimization procedure and  proposed  optimization  for  some  of  the  malfunctioning  microwave  links  of famous  telecommunication  services  provider ‘Telenor Pakistan’. We propose a method for avoiding the signal transmission through the ducting region through the use of duct detection and avoidance system in order to improve the quality of the cellular transmission network.
