Signal Strength and Cell Parameters [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DBm] dBm (used in following slides) = an abbreviation for the power ratio in decibel (dB) of the measured power referenced to 1 mW (milliwatt) dBm is an absolute unit measuring absolute power Since it is referenced to 1 mW In contrast, dB is a dimensionless unit, which is used when measuring the ratio between two values (such as signal-to-noise ratio) Examples: 0 dBm = 1 mW 3 dBm ≈ 2 mW Since a 3 dB increase represents roughly doubling the power −3 dBm ≈ 0.5 mW Since a 3 dB decrease represents roughly cutting in half the power … more examples – next slide … © 2007 by Leszek T.
