. .this is responsible for transmitting and receiving the specific GSM frequency for a particular network. A BTS contains the transmit and receive technology and also the aerials to supply a radio cell.. on a much larger scale with a large GSM mast. Base Tranceiver Station. A BTS is also called a base station (BS) and is commonly referred to as a "cell phone tower." Typically the equipment owned and operated by a wireless service provider that generates the radio frequencies picked up by subscriber handsets or other mobile devices. a BTS holds the radio transceivers that define a cell and coordinates the radio-link protocolswith the mobile device.BTS Short for base transceiver station.. Technical term for a mobile phone base station. A BTS is controlled by a base station controller. which is in turn under an MSC (Mobile Switching Center). This could be in the form of a picocell for Private Mobile Networks but would also apply.. to Vodafone. .. Orange etc. The BTS is the networking component of a mobile communications system from which all signals are sent and received. In mobile communications. A GSM antenna . Several BTSs are administered by a BSC (Base Station Controller).

The BCF is implemented as a discrete unit or even incorporated in a TRX in compact base stations. A GSM network is made up of three subsystems:    The Network and Switching Subsystem (NSS) – comprising an MSC and associated registers.for maintenance of the network.A base transceiver station (BTS) or cell site is a piece of equipment that facilitates wireless communication between user equipment (UE) and a network. BTS is also referred to as the radio base station(RBS). node B (in 3G Networks) or. computers with wireless internet connectivity. it is generally and commonly associated with mobile communication technologies like GSM and CDMA.

The basic structure and functions of the BTS remains the same regardless of the wireless technologies. .and manages operational states of each TRX. known as antenna diversity or space diversity. Does sending and receiving signals through the same antenna ports (cables to antenna). Also does sending and reception of signals to/from higher network entities (like the base station controller in mobile telephony) Power amplifier (PA) Amplifies the signal from DRX for transmission through antenna. The antennas can be spaced horizontally or vertically. status changes. Antenna This is also considered a part of the BTS. Baseband receiver unit (BBxx) Frequency hopping. placed at an equal distance to an uneven multiple of a quarter of wavelength (for 900 MHz the wavelength it is 30 cm).

The resistors are chosen to match the characteristic impedance of the sense lines. respectively. The meter can be used to indicate the degree of mismatch between a transmission line and its load (usually a radio antenna). A simple directional SWR meter Referring to the above diagram. and diode rectifiers at the other. or evaluate the effectiveness of impedance matching efforts. first calculate the reflection coefficient: Then calculate the VSWR: In a passive meter. A calculation can then be performed to arrive at the SWR.The SWR meter or VSWR (voltage standing wave ratio) meter measures the standing wave ratio in a transmission line. Directional SWR Meter A directional SWR meter measures the magnitude of the forward & reflected waves by sensing each one individually. . To calculate the VSWR. This main line is electromagnetically coupled to two smaller sense lines (directional couplers) which are terminated with resistors at one end. The diodes convert the magnitudes of the forward & reverse waves to FWD and REV DC voltages. with directional couplers. this is usually indicated on a non-linear scale. which are then smoothed by the capacitors[1]. the transmitter (TX) and antenna (ANT) terminals are connected via an internal transmission line.

If the characteristic impedance of the line is known to be 50 ohms. Properly designed. but only the mismatch ratio. Note also that for accurate readings. its input impedance deviates from its characteristic impedance. 50 ohms). an antenna analyzer or other similar RF measuring device is required. This usually involves alternately connecting the reference wave and the reflected wave to a power meter. a bridge circuit can be used not only to indicate a match. but the degree of mismatch . The bridge is balanced (0 volts across the detector) only when the test impedance exactly matches the reference impedance. and intermodulation products when receiving. .. When not actually measuring SWR. they can normally be left in without causing such problems. and comparing the magnitudes of the resulting deflections. a bridge can be used to determine the presence or absence of a low SWR. and the wave reflected from the load. An SWR meter should be connected to the line as close as possible to the antenna: All practical transmission lines have a certain amount of loss. to select the resistance appropriate for the sense lines. we know the magnitude and phase of the forward wave. the SWR is highest closest to the load. To measure the actual impedance. the resistance and reactance). This is because the internal diodes of such meters can generate harmonics when transmitting. and only improves as the distance from the load increases. the reference impedance of the bridge is set to the expected load impedance (for example. some SWR meters have switches on the rear.SWR Bridge SWR can also be measured using an impedance bridge circuit. the SWR meter must be matched to the line impedance. usually 50 or 75 ohms. which causes the reflected wave to be attenuated as it travels back along the line. it is the same wave present on the other side of the detector. To test for a match. Subtracting this known wave from the wave present at the line input yields the reflected wave. To accommodate multiple impedances. When a transmission line is mismatched (SWR > 1:1).thus making it possible to calculate the SWR. it is best to remove the more usual types of passive SWR meter from the line. Because active SWR meters do not usually suffer from this effect. thus. Thus. The voltage at the line input represents the vector sum of the forward wave. and the transmission line connected as the unknown impedance. RF power is applied to the circuit.e. Limitations Note that an SWR meter does not measure the actual impedance of a load (i.
