 The whole world tends to use the high rates multimedia applications. High-speed data over cellular networks will enable a rich suite of multimedia services. LTE is the latest mobile generation that achieves the required data demand. The number of LTE subscribers worldwide is rising rapidly and we will catch it in the near future. The project aims to design LTE network and to specify very accurate and efficient propagation model. In our case, the area under test is Nablus city. Our project includes numerous steps. At the beginning, Mobile Planning Process was discussed. Then, we calculate link budget using Jawwal Company dimensioning tool and specifications that leads us to start in coverage planning, after that we use some statics provided by Jawwal Company used to complete the work on capacity dimensioning .After finding number of LTE sites From Coverage and Capacity Dimensioning, these sites will be simulated by allocating it on a map tool provided by Jawwal and show received Power level and minimum achievable data rate. Also in this project, we provide a general theoretical overview of LTE optimization features as an important phase in any network planning. An important issue to discuss is site specific propagation model, because all planning procedures are based on which propagation model is used. In this part of our project we will build a model similar to Nablus city using Wireless InSite tool considering path loss and received power graphs for each model. We also make a simulation of propagation path and spread time for Full 3D propagation model
