RSRP : Linear average of power transmitted over REs which carries cell specific reference signal over a considered bandwidth.

While calculating RSRP value, power transmitted on cyclic prefix is excluded.

RSRP is mainly used for cell selection, cell re-selection, handover and to calculate path loss for the power control.

RSRP value ranges from -140 dbm to -44 dbm. These both border values come out by using the following steps.

**Steps to calculate Max value i.e. -44 dbm:**

- Maximum level that an UE can receive : -25 dbm
- Bandwidth of 1.4 Mhz = 6 RB = 72 REs

-25 - 10 log (72) = -44 dbm

**Steps to calculate Minimum value i.e. - 140 dbm:**

1. Maximum path loss of 152 db

2. Transmit power of 43 dbm

3. Bandwidth of 20 Mhz = 1200 REs

43 - 152 - 10 log (1200) = -139.72
