Title: Systems and methods for tracking signal strength in wireless networks

Abstract: Tracking of signal strength in wireless networks is disclosed. In one of many possible embodiments, signal strength of a wireless signal received by at least one wireless device is measured, the wireless device being configured for operation in the wireless network. A parameter of the wireless device is determined, the parameter corresponding with the measurement of signal strength. The measured signal strength and the determined parameter are transmitted to a network operations center. The measured signal strength and the determined parameter are used to analyze signal coverage of the wireless network.
