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

Progressive system owners are shifting their field maintenance and support from a traditional break-fix model to new proactive service models.

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is making new proactive support and service models possible, built on remote monitoring to enable equipment and assets at remote sites to be more easily accessed and continuously monitored. With IIoT comes continuous data providing insight about what is happening now, what has happened, and increasingly what will happen.
