Rise Over Thermal

In wireless communication systems, the rise over thermal (ROT) indicates the ratio between the total interference received on a base station and the thermal noise.

The ROT is typically used as a measure of how congested a cellular telephone network is. The capacity of systems using CDMA (code division multiple access) is often determined by how high the acceptable level of ROT is

Famous quotes containing the word rise:

    So long as men worship the Caesars and Napoleons, Caesars and Napoleons will duly rise and make them miserable.
    Aldous Huxley (1894–1963)
