This calculator translates the receiver sensitivity parameters and the provided configurations for
gNB/UE/System to obtain the Downlink and Uplink pathloss values for Cell Edge. It uses **3GPP UMa
(Urban
macro) and RMa (Rural Macro)** models to compute these values.

Please note that in the Chart, the **red line** denotes the cell edge path loss for
**DOWNLINK**. The **green
line**
shows the cell edge path loss for **UPLINK**.

Hence, the point where the green line coincides with the blue or orange chart, this is the distance
of
your cell edge. Distances are in meters.

In the current example setting, you will see a **Downlink** cell edge path loss of **139**
which intersects the
Urban model value at cell edge of **845** meters and Rural model value of **1645** meters.

Red Dotted Line = Porpagation Loss @ Downlink Cell Edge

Green Dotted Line = Porpagation Loss @ Uplink Cell Edge
