Chapter 9 Network Optimization
Network optimization serves for the pursuit of a maximum application of networkresource and a maximum improvement of QoS. Meanwhile, it also contributes tofoundations and principles for future network expansion. Optimization here refers tooptimization based on a sound implementation of network planning. In this sense,optimization is a supplement to the aspects failing to be taken into adequateconsideration or resource adjustment for burst situations as suggested in a largetraffic burst. Generally, drive test,call trafficstatistics and subjective perception onthe part of human are taken as the basis for optimization,but moreover signalingtracking and analyzing almost plays a crucial role in solving difficult problems.
1.1 Process of Network Optimization
The mobile communication network of GSM generally falls into Mobile Switching-Transporting Part and Radio Part. Due to the mobility of subscribers and thecomplexity of radio waves in propagation, the Radio Part always becomes thedecisive factor affecting the QoS of the GSM network. Wireless network optimizationrefers to reasonable modification to planning and designing of communicationnetworks according to certain principles so that a more reliable, more economicnetwork operation, a higher QoS, and a higher utilization ratio for network resourcecan be achieved. Undoubtedly, this is of great significance for network operators andsubscribers. Procedures for network optimization are as follows:

Network Optimization Report
Drive Test and Traffic StatisticsCollectionData Analysis
Network Parameter Modification
Preparatory work at early stage include obtaining knowledge of progressive status innetwork construction, analyzing the operation status of network, preparing for optimization test equipment and software, network planning report, collection of engineering and designing documents, etc. Obtaining of basic network information
