Voltage Standing Wave Ratio (VSWR or SWR) is an important stat for transmitter sites that should be continuously measured and monitored to be able to see - and frequently preempt - a problem before it has a significant impact.

VSWR / SWR is worth paying attention to on a wireless transmitter site as it:

  • Is a good measure of the overall health of the antenna system
  • Can highlight degraded system performance – coverage, voice quality, data throughput, etc.
  • Helps avoid damage and failure to transmitters and repeaters from high VSWR
  • Indicates if the system is performing as designed and intended

We have listened hard to system owners, technicians and users as to why they don’t remotely monitor their critical infrastructure. These are the capable people in companies and government who look after and rely on wireless transmitters, generators, hydraulics and more. Almost without exception they want remote monitoring; however there are real challenges that have kept them from doing so.
