This prior art search report presents the mappings of the various elements of claim 1 of U.S. Patent No. 8,320,264 (‘264 Patent), titled “Method and apparatus for determining path loss by active signal detection”, from assignee Geoscope Technologies Pte Ltd, published on 27 November 2012.

This patent discloses a method that allows the determination of how much a wireless signal weakens as it travels from a wireless device to a receiver within a wireless communication system. The process involves identifying the geographic area, cell, sector, and frequency channel involved in the communication. The receiver captures the transmitted signal and measures both the transmission signal strength and the received signal strength. Using these measurements, the path loss value for the specific frequency channel is calculated. This information helps optimize wireless communication systems and improve signal coverage and quality.
