What is Cell Overshooting in 4G / 5G?

Cell overshooting refers to a situation where an antenna transmits its signal beyond its intended coverage area.

Overshooting can lead to interference and inefficient use of network resources.

Overshooting can occur due to various factors, such as high transmit power, antenna misalignment, incorrect cell planning, or environmental conditions.

It can result in neighboring cells overlapping each other’s coverage areas, leading to interference and degraded network performance.

To mitigate overshooting, RF engineers typically employ techniques such as optimizing cell configuration, adjusting antenna tilt and azimuth, performing detailed cell planning, and monitoring and optimizing network parameters.

These measures help ensure efficient coverage and minimize interference between cells in cellular networks.
