1. Introduction
The initial planning of any Radio Access Network begins with a Radio Link Budget. As the name suggests, a link budget is simply the accounting of all of the gains and losses from the transmitter, through the medium (free space, cable, waeguide, fiber, etc.! to the receier in a telecommunication system. n this page, we will briefly discuss link budget calculations for LT#.
2. LTE Radio Link Budgeting
2.1. Typical Parameter Values
The link budget calculations estimate the maximum allowed
signal attenuation g between the mobile and the base station antenna. The maximum path loss allows the maximum cell range to be estimated with a suitable propagation model. The cell range gives the number of base station sites required to cover the target geographical area.The following table shows typical (practical) parameter values used for doing an LTE adio Link !udget.

2.2. Uplink Budget
The table below shows an example LTE link budget for the uplink from 4F2 assuming a '* kbps data rate and two resource block allocation (giving a +'% k=> transmission bandwidth). The 8E terminal power is assumed to be $* d!m (without any body loss for a data connection). 5t is assumed that the eGode ! receiver has a noise figure of $.% d!2 and the required ignal to Goise and 5nterference atio ( 5G) has been taken from link level simulations performed in 4F. #n interference margin of $.% d! is assumed. # cable loss of $ d! is considered2 which is compensated by assuming a masthead amplifier (/=#) that introduces a gain of $.% d!. #n H antenna gain of 4-.% is assumed considering a +§or macro&cell (with '<°ree antennas). 5n conclusion the maximum allowed path loss becomes 4'+.* d!.
