Important Questions In a Telecommunication Entry Level Job Interview

Network Plan and Optimization Test Paper
I.             Fill in the blanks :

1.     In radio signal propagation, there are two kinds of signal fading. The fading caused by buildings shadow is called                        .The fading caused by multi-path is called                            
2.     In GSM mobile communication system, there are mainly four kinds of diversity technology: space diversity,          ,      ,        diversity.
3.                 Mainly refers to the problem of co-frequency interference arising from the time difference between master signals arriving at the receiver and other multi-path signals in terms of time for transmission in space (transmission distance).
4.     In a GSM 900 cellular BTS, its Tx band is    MHZ, and its Rx band is    MHZ; its duplex interval is    MHZ, and its Carrier Frequency interval is     KHZ , each Carrier Frequency containing       full-rate physical channels.
5.     Demodulation is actually a process to reflect the change to the transferred information about such Carrier Frequency parameters as    .
6.     Electronic map mainly includes such three subdirectories as      , which keep the information ASSET can use.
7.     In GSM specification, despite what frequency reuse pattern is applied, Carrier/Interference must satisfy following request. Co-frequency C/I     dB. Adjacent frequency C/I     dB. 400KHZ deviation C/I     dB. In engineering design,       dB more should be considered.
8.     The multiple access modes now adopted in wireless communications include     ,   , and
