A field trial of the DVB-SH technology was performed to confirm the simulation and laboratory results, to evaluate the solution in the field (coverage, SFN gain, diversity gain) and to validate network engineering rules (integration on UMTS sites). In this paper, we will focus on the SFN and diversity gain measurements results.
