Sensitivity to RAN in a Mobile Field Survey

Research output: Contribution in Book/Catalog/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Thanks to the fact that Belgium is a densely populated country, and also lags behind in the roll-out of Long Term Evolution (LTE) / 4G, it is still possible to visit areas enjoying different Radio Access Technology (RAT) coverages within a limited territory. This paper reports an analysis of the dataset of web requests collected through a field survey mostly performed in south-western Belgium and northern France. This analysis highlights the impact of Radio Access Network (RAN) conditions (signal strength, mobility) and settings (timers) on the canvas Page Load Time (cPLT).
