RF Survey is collection of data from the site or in the field required to install a new site. This is essential for various reasons such as cell site analysis, determining coverage region of proposed new cell Site, for deciding the type of link connectivity with another cell site. This task will result into physical changes in the existing network due to modification or addition of new sites/equipments.
