All mobile phones have bars or some other type of indicator displaying signal strength. As mobile devices move away from the base station the signal strength becomes weak and at some point becomes out of range or establishes connections with a different tower.
Question: For a LTE base station is it possible to determine the relationship between the signal strength and distance?
Assumption: LTE base station is located in a plain field.
Back story: A cellular service provider is planning on installing a LTE base station using equipment from JMA wireless. The model number of the equipment is X7CQAP_FRO_645. Below is a H-plane pattern plot for 750MHz frequency.
Can anyone provide insight as how to interpret the above plot in relation to signal strength verses distance? Do I need more information?
