Base station of any mobile-phone is designed to provide coverage for more than one geographical area called cells. While the network, is made up of several base stations that are operating in conjunction with the adjacent base stations. Moreover, base stations have to be carefully analyzed and efficiently located in order to minimize the interference between cells with better signal qualities. Where, the most important point in cellular mobiles is the dropped in calls while downloading data. This research provides a new recommendation for repositioning the tower’s places in order to provide more easily interface to replace the traditional methods for controlling the level of the signals. Utilizing the college buildings at Near East University (NEU) campus in the Northern part of Cyprus, the loss in WiFi propagation is studied outside the coverage areas. These buildings serve as good experimental settings because they exemplify typical signal dead spots, locations where little to no WiFi signal is available. In this study, we researched several ways of path loss propagation that spread between the base stations; we recognized and arranged these issues. We at that point applied our path loss propagation algorithmic model to demonstrate that signal quality is fundamentally enhanced and no loss in the signal. At last, we demonstrated the proficiency of the proposed positions and clarify the specifics of our framework.
