  • Patent number: 8755805
    Abstract: At least one example embodiment discloses a method of generating a radio frequency (RF) map of a network. The method includes obtaining, by a controller, received signal strengths of at least one user equipment (UE) in a first technology network, determining, by the controller, a back projection of a second technology network based on the received signal strengths, and generating, by the controller, an RF map of the second technology network based on the determining. The back projection represents an attenuation function of a coverage area of the second technology network and the RF map illustrates the attenuation function of the coverage area of second technology network.
