Abstract [en]

The attention for rural coverage was increasing in media. The need for faster mobile internet speeds was growing, not least for the forest industry. This industry was becoming more updated and sufficient wireless communication could make it more efficient. Additionally, rural coverage could be used by people living in remote areas, such as farmers, and tourist organizations as well.

In order to enhance the rural coverage, firstly the existing coverage had to be determined. There were coverage maps done by the operators; however people were not satisfied with them since the stated coverage not always was available. Hence, one goal of this study was to verify how much coverage that was available for the forest industry. The other goals were to verify this coverage and suggest how to improve it.

Coverage maps from operators were compared with harvesting locations for the forest industry. This would give an illustration of how the situation looked like, according to the available coverage maps. In addition a couple of methods that verified the coverage maps were done. These methods were then backed up by theoretical calculations.

The results showed that the best coverage according to the operator coverage maps was given by Net1. Furthermore the best verification of coverage is given by Ascom Tems products, if several details are wanted. However, if a budget solution would be sought, less advanced applications could be enough.
