A switched-beam antenna for cellular communication

Ahmad, Norsuhaida (2003) A switched-beam antenna for cellular communication. Masters thesis, Kolej Universiti Teknologi Tun Hussein Onn.



Wireless communication has created a continuing demand for increased bandwidth and better quality of services. Smart antenna arrays are one of the ways to accommodate this demand which can provide numerous benefits to service provider and the customer. Switched-beam antenna was chosen for this project due to its easier implementation and lower cost compared to adaptive array. Switched-beam antenna is one of smart antenna technique which comprises a number of predefined beams. The control system switches among the beams that provide the maximum signal response. Through the investigation and study on this system, found that, the 1200 sectorization with three monopole antenna elements suited for prototype construction. The initial stage to design this system is by using MA TLAB simulation to identify the antenna characteristic and the parameters involved. The second stage is about the construction of the prototype switched-beam antenna used to measure the antenna gain and relative power level which displayed using CASSY program.
