How To Calculate RF Path Loss and Link Budget?

What Is RF Path Loss, And How Does It Affect The Link Budget? In order to determine factors such as the required antenna gain levels, radio power levels and reciever sensitivity figures in a wireless system, system designers must first be able to devise the link budget. But, in order to establish that link budget […]

Network Infrastructure Begins With Cabling As We Move Into A Wireless Future

The Importance of Cabling: Network infrastructure, specifically cabling, is often not recognized publicly for its value. This is probably because great infrastructure is designed and installed so it is out of sight, out of mind and out of the way. As demand for, and discussion around passive infrastructure grows; particularly for wireless infrastructure, it may […]

Considering Network Evolution in Building Design

Adapting to Suit Ever Evolving Networks Networks are all around us; without them, we wouldn’t be able to connect in the way we do. But as demand for these networks grows, are we integrating them into our building designs? Should we be designing networks for buildings, or designing buildings for networks? Consideration for growing network […]
