Onn, Mohd Azlan (2013) Comparison of received signal strength and signal quality in UiTM Shah Alam using Nemo handy / Mohd Azlan Onn. Degree thesis, Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM).


Global System for Mobile (GSM) is a second-generation cellular system standard. With the increase of the number of GSM subscriber, GSM wireless communication system has attracted more attention in the telecommunication field. The GSM Association estimates that GSM serve 80% of the global mobile market. Third Generation (3G) stands for third generation of mobile communication networks. Manufacturers claims that 3G can offer data rate up to 40 times faster than the earlier 2G technology. We can see the trend nowadays where people had shift from the outdated GSM phone to the latest 3G phones since people are using data more often with their phone. Nowadays users are likely to expect uninterrupted, efficient and stable service from their network. Customers complain a lot, more aware and picky about signal availability within their network. Thus, to provide better and uninterrupted service, performance testing is required. In this project we focuses on measuring, comparing, analyzing signal strength, signal quality and cell reselection in 2G and 3G system for MAXIS and DIGI. This project could as well familiarize us with NEMO Handy as the measuring tool during drive test and also understanding NEMO Outdoor as the software to analyze the results obtained. The measures of signal strength were taken with different time and weather condition which is morning, afternoon, evening and during rainy day. The average were calculated from the results and compared.
