    Abstract

    The target of the paper is to provide guidelines for indoor antenna selection for passive distributed antenna system or radiating cable implementation. Distributed antenna systems are commonly used for indoor installations, and radiating cables are often used in tunnels, airplanes, or similar constricted areas. However, guidelines for optimizing WCDMA indoor network antenna configuration are lacking in the literature. In this paper, the effect of different distributed antenna configurations on signal quality and system performance is studied, taking also radiating cable in comparison. A special attention is paid to the future requirements of HSDPA. The measurement results show that planning of distributed antenna system is not very sensitive to the amount of antennas, as long as good coverage can be ensured. Also radiating cable can be used, but providing good coverage requires very dense installation of cables.
