If you work with telecommunications, it is very likely that already has come across the following request: generate a map in Google Earth (kml file) from a table with latitude, longitude and some other basic information.
This task may seem simple, but if you've tried to do it, probably realized that it is not as easy as it sounds!
Many people don't even know where to start: ask for a friend to help, do a good 'Google Search', among other efforts.
What happens is that as this... read more

The reach area of each cell of the network directly affects the efficiency of the system in terms of Quality, Capacity and Coverage.
Therefore it is essential that each one be perfectly adjusted. These adjustments include changes to the configuration parameters (eg, for load balancing), and also adjustment of physical parameters.
In the latter case, the adjustment of tilts and azimuths (and sometimes height) of the antennas is a key factor in achieving the best possible results.

We're starting a new sequence of Hunter Tool tutorial. In today's tutorial we will see the module 'Hunter GE Propagation Analyzer', which deals with Performance counters collected data and plots them in Google Earth.
That way we can perform different types of analysis, as shown in detail in tutorial Analyzing Coverage with Propagation Delay - PD and Timing Advance - TA (GSM-WCDMA-LTE), whose reading is highly recommended before proceeding.
Note: as always the files from this... read more

Hello friends, today we will talk about a small change in our presentation way, or the methodology of Hunter tutorials, mainly due to user requests.
Until today, all tutorials were written so extensively, aiming mainly to allow an easy understanding of everything that was needed so that all users could learn how to use their own tools available, such as Microsoft Access and Google Earth.
To do this, in several tutorials, we extensively detailed the use of Access and VBA, demonstrating how ... read more

With the plot of the network information (sites and cells) in a geo-referenced way, we can greatly benefit from an easier and more intuitive visualization of it, and it also helps identify problems such as misdirected cells (azimuths).

Hello everybody. As we all know, due to the numerous problems encountered in the development methodology telecomHall, I stopped sending macros, code, files, etc.. Of course, I have suspended the accounts of all subscribers until then, they are no longer charged for anything more.
However, many of you asked me to continue, even though he was just teaching some algorithms, standard procedures, etc.. And I've had articles ready for publishing weekly. Anyway, the tool, or... read more

We have already learned how to plot the information of coverage (Signal Level) of any network - GSM, UMTS or any other technology - based on data from a text file on Google Earth. We have also seen how interfaces can be easily created in Access to interact with applications.
Today we go a bit further, and learn how to plot the data for Best Server of any network, and now we start to use user interfaces, always seeking a better user experience - even if those users be... read more

As we mentioned before, Drive Test is important for a more complete analysis of the network. The various post-processing tools available have a complete set for this analysis, but sometimes our work can be much simplified, and why not, sometimes getting a better result.
This is particularly the case for the custom processing of drive test - we can not even have the power of algorithms and details of some software, but we got results surprisingly simple and efficient.... read more

We already learned some important concepts for Network plotting data on Google Earth. Today we will improve a little our application (Hunter GE Network) in order to achieve a more professional result and that allows to work with layers of various technologies.
In addition, we will learn what styles are and how they are used in a simple way to achieve amazing results, not only for the purpose that we see today, but also in creating thematic maps on whatever the... read more

The analysis of drive test are key to any kind of telecom professional, either in the implementation of data collection or just in the analysis. Although through the analysis of KPI's you can identify problems like dropped calls, the drive tests allow a deeper analysis in the field. Identifying areas of each sector of coverage, interference, among others.

The data from our network - sites and sectors - are already automatically plotted on Google Earth, so good. But the presentation of data can be much better. We saw how to change the characteristics of sectors and sites manually through the interface of the program. Today we will learn how to make a series of improvements that can be done to make this data much more organized and presentable.

Plot the data from our network of sites on Google Earth has been the beginning, and we had our first contact with the way this is done. Equally or more important that information from websites is the information sector, however, is viewing the sectors of our BTS's.

It's a fact and nobody can deny today's extreme importance of Google and the tools that are part of it. And one of these tools is Google Earth, a really great help to our area of Telecom and IT, although it is used for numerous other applications. But generally people use only a small part of its potential, as individual users. However, knowing a few secrets, you will stand out easily.
Note: All telecomHall articles are originally written in Portuguese. Following we... read more
