A Path Study investigates the path or route a radio signal takes from transmitter to receiver. The path it takes can be simple or complex, and understanding it is a key part in learning your actual coverage area, potential dead spots, and building a reliable communications system.
Here’s how Tridon engineers conduct a path study.
- We begin with a software-driven examination of the area in which communications will take place.
- From this examination we develop a theoretical coverage area.
- Our communication technicians then conduct a “drive test.” They literally drive to various points within the theoretical coverage area to test radio signal integrity and confirm the actual coverage area.
- The Path Study is then used by our customer to make data-driven decisions about communication needs, budget and timelines.
