Probabilistic parametric functions such as density and distribution functions modeled to depict certain stochastic behaviour are used to express the fundamental theories of reliability engineering. In the existing works of literature, a few probability distribution functions have been well reported. However, selecting and identifying the most suitable distribution functions to reliably model and fit datasets remain. This work examines the application of three different methods for selecting the best function to model and fit measured data. The methods comprise the parametric maximum likelihood estimation, Akaike Information Criteria and the Bayesian Information Criteria. In particular, these methods are implemented on Signal Interference to Noise Ratio (SINR) data acquired over an operational Long Term Evolution (LTE) mobile broadband networks in a typical built-up indoor and outdoor campus environment for three months. Generally, results showed a high level of consistency with the Kolmogorov-Semirnov Criteria. Specifically, the Weibull distribution function showed the most credible performance for radio signal analysis in the three study locations. The explored approach in this paper would find useful applications in modeling, design and management of cellular network resources[...] Read more.
