Many path loss prediction models developed by Henry Bertoni and his students are an integral part of propagation models used in today’s radio network planning tools. This contribution describes how his models have been integrated into, extended and applied to a propagation model used by a mobile network operator for the daily radio planning process. The performance of the model at 900 MHz and 1800 MHz is analysed by comparing the predictions with measurements from an extensive measurement campaign at 29 representative sites in Germany.
