Title: METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR ANTENNA PERFORMANCE EVALUATION AS WELL AS BASE STATION
Abstract:
Method, apparatus, computer program and computer readable storage medium are disclosed for antenna performance evaluation. According to an embodiment, signal metrics and positions of a plurality of user equipments within a coverage area of an antenna array are acquired. An antenna performance map showing how signal metric as a variable changes relative to position as another variable is generated from the signal metrics and positions. Obstacle related information is determined based on the generated antenna performance map and a reference antenna performance map. A base station comprising the apparatus is also disclosed.
