  1. The coverage is a specification for the shielding ofcables. Since a braided shield can never cover the entire surface of the dielectric, the coverage describes the percentage that the shield covers of the dielectric. This percentage is also referred to as the degree of coverage. The coverage has a direct influence on some cable parameters, such as the coupling resistance and the shielding effectiveness.
  2. The term coverage is also used in telecommunications to refer to the geographic and population coverage of services. Geographic coverage is a measure of the range of a service. It indicates the percentage of a geographic area where the service is available. Population-based coverage defines the percentage of the population that can use the service.
