Checking the RF signal strength, background noise and duty cycle
Select Base Stations.
On the List tab, click the name of the base station you want to check.
Select the RF Statistics tab, and go to SIGNAL STRENGTH AND NOISE.
The RF signal strength, background noise and duty cycle information appear as follows:
The uplink and downlink duty cycles are provided for each Logical Channel (LC).
Move the mouse over Uplink Duty Cycle or Downlink Duty Cycle to view specifically the uplink or downlink duty cycles.
Move the mouse over time axis to view the uplink and downlink duty cycle simultaneously.
Select Received Signal Strength Indicator (RSSI) or Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR) in the upper right corner of the graph to view the corresponding time series.
Depending on base station hardware and RF Region settings, you may have 8 or 16 uplink Logical Channels and several downlink logical channels. Select Logical Channel ranges in the drop-down list on the upper left corner of the graph to display a new page of Logical Channels.
The list of Logical channels includes:
Symmetrical Logical channels (same frequency used for uplink and downlink communication), in which case both uplink and downlink data will appear when you select the Logical Channel tab.
Asymmetric downlink Logical Channels Select, in which case only downlink data will appear when you select the Logical Channel tab.
