Have you experienced lighting issues with the towers you manage and maintain? Current monitoring solutions allow you to avoid the costs of manual checks and potential fines by checking and notifying you of potential issues immediately on either your computer or smartphone. With proactive monitoring solutions, you can reduce downtime, save money and easily observe your wireless communications network.
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
