Possible Optimisation Processes  Overshooting Cells\ Pilot Overshooting  Pilot Pollution  Poor Coverage Levels (Poor Dominance)  Interfering Coverage  Pilot Surprise  Missing Neighbours 2 Copyright 2008 AIRCOM International .

i.  Only consider measurement points having three or more detected cells  A cell has to appear at least X number of times to be considered as over overshooting  mean distance < 1km overshooting cells three times the average distance  mean distance > 1km overshooting cells two times the average distance 3 Copyright 2008 AIRCOM International .g. calculate the distance (to all detected cell)  and the average distance Report on those cells which are above or X times the average distance  Overshooting Cells can be detected by the following logic  Further enhancements can be made by considering  Different distance criteria based on site density\area type.e. e.Overshooting Cells\ Pilot Overshooting  Overshooting refers to excess coverage levels\range of a cell.  Cell pilot power is detected far (how far?) from its origin  Cell pilot power is detected beyond first\second tier neighbouring sites  For every measurement point.

Pilot Pollution  Pilot pollution can defined as the regions where the number of detected cells are greater than the Active Set (AS )size and also above the AS activation Ec/Io threshold  Pilot polluters can be detected by the following logic  Only consider those measurement points where the number of detected cells > 3  Further filter the measurement points where all cells are detected above an Ec/Io threshold of X dB (-12) and not below Y dB (e.e. 10) of that of the best cell  Measurement points extracted by the above criteria contain the pilot pollution information. i. the first three cells belong to active set and rest pilot polluters 10 Copyright 2008 AIRCOM International .g.
