Please throw some light on RF Link Balnce. Wat is this and wat should be the values for good link balance21st December 2005 at 09:29 #43406dizzGuest
To have a good link balance i.e. Uplink = downlink pathloss.22nd December 2005 at 05:23 #43407RF EngrGuest
Please elaborate your answer and also tell me the difference between Link Balance and Path Balance23rd December 2005 at 09:05 #43408nallGuest
Path balance = (UL loses – DL loses)+100
*addition of the 100 is make the overall figure a positive value in stat. Plz correct me if I’m wrong!
further there is set parameter value which defines the stability of the overaall system.26th December 2005 at 07:42 #43409RF EngrGuest
I think we add 110 in UL-DL value.
Also explain in detail what should be the mean value of this and the standard deviation22nd February 2006 at 21:56 #43410t28Guest
there is nothing the same between path balance and link balance.
RF link balance=DL level-UL level.
superb value (900 DRX)is 2.5, or 12.5 in case of LNA, on 1800 DRXs good value is about 4 – 5.23rd February 2006 at 02:22 #43411BlessCurlzGuest
The method used analyzes downlink vs. uplink path balanced path and reliability (based upon lognormal fading). The contour limit becomes the received signal level set to balanced path conditions with the appropriate reliability. It is dependent upon a number of factors, including: tower height,power,combiner, and receive sensitivity.28th February 2007 at 23:14 #43412JohnGuest
Path balance = (ul losses – dl losses) + 105
where 105 is the optimum value for the path balance
in case of -ve path balance this means the dl losses is greater which means a tx calibration for the bts is needed (adjust tx power)
and in case of +ver path balance this means the ul losses is greater which means a rx calibration is needed to adjust the sensitivity of the rx of the bts2nd March 2007 at 05:18 #43413nallGuest
please advise on a project to carry to test the Parameter settings of Motorola BTS n Ericsson BTS !2nd March 2007 at 19:48 #43414PixGuest
maybe we don’t calculate the path bal in the same way. “my” path balance is centered around 0..
path balance < 0 means losses in the UL (poor UL RX) path balance > 0 means losses in the DL (weak DL TX)
path bal = (Pow(TRE TX) – RXLEV(DL)) – (Pow(MS TX) – RXLEV(UL))19th December 2009 at 18:13 #43415MohanGuest
Good article for Huawei path balance.

Hi guys 🙂
Understood, that if your unbalance value close to ZERO then it is OK.
But what is permissible value of unbalance between UL&DL?
From which value will strong problem with KPIs begin?
Please, share. Thank you)20th October 2011 at 13:21 #43417pixGuest
typically, path balance should be between -5dB and +5/+8dB
but when the PB is outside these values, sometimes you won’t see a problem. KPI remain fine because the neighbours will handle areas where the loss of coverage happens.
Typically, in urban areas, the overlap with the neighbours is good enough -> a site with bad PB will still have good KPI.
But you will notice that the neighbours are handling traffic which is outside their “comfort” zone, and that they are having some KPI issues (sometimes).

What about Power Control when calculated Path Balance ?17th June 2014 at 10:58 #43419pixGuest
the attenuations caused by power control should not be taken into account in the calcul, for best restuls.
In ALU, they are removed from the computations.
In E/, they are not, so one must either disable the PC during the MRR recording, or take into account the MS Pwr and BS Pwr graphs when looking at the Path Balance graph.
