The performance of different mobile network technologies can be evaluated using system level simulations. The radio wave propagation model also known as path loss model plays a very significant role in planning of any wireless communication systems. In this work, COST 231 radio propagation model is studied for the Long Term Evolution (LTE) networks using different antenna systems. A comparison is made between different antenna systems for finding the path-losses. Different COST 231 radio propagation model based terrains has been studied and compared, such as, urban, suburban area under micro and macro level.
