Title Microwave attenuation and prediction of rain outage for GSM transmission networks in Pakistan’s tropical region
Authors Ms. Uzma Siddique, University of Engineering and Technology, Taxila, Pakistan
Prof. Habibullah Jamal, University of Engineering and Technology, Taxila, Pakistan
Abstract The microwave attenuation due to rainfall in tropical regions has not been very widely studied yet. In Pakistan’s tropical environment, line-of-sight microwave communication links were set up and have been operated for several years to study the microwave attenuation characteristics due to tropical rainfall. In this paper the experimental results are presented, including the cumulative distributions of microwave attenuation, the relationship between specific attenuation and rainfall rate. In addition, a rain outage prediction model is proposed which not only predict microwave radio link performance but will also useful in calculating the link degradations due to interference issues. The main focus of this research work has been done keeping in mind the GSM Transmission networks of Pakistan.

The results show that the rainfall rate, the microwave propagation characteristics and outage prediction in Pakistan differ from the International Radio Consultative Committee predictions and ITU recommendation P530.7/8 respectively.
