Comparative Analysis of Signal Strength in South-South Nigeria

Authors(3) :-Uzairue Stanley, Akpamu Jean, Olaitan Alashiri

Losses has become the major drawback that is being faced by telecommunication sector in Nigeria and the world at large. Many researchers have carried out several researches in this area using different methods. Empirical method was adopted in this research work because it involves the measurement of field data, RF signal tracker was installed in a mobile phone called Samsung galaxy pocket, and this software gave us the distance to site (base station) and the signal strength level of the network provider at a particular distance, cell ID etc. From data obtained, it was noticed that the calculation of path loss using log distance model which is deterministic is not as accurate as the generated empirical model, the generated model gave a better and more accurate result than the existing ones. Model was developed to calculate the received signal strength in Ujoelem, Ekpoma Nigeria and the model was named "Uzairue model".
