Proposed solutions to resolve issue or meet KPI benchmark
MOTIVATION Challenging area of research Comprehensive knowledge on the subject Day-to-day learning .
GSM ARCHITECTURE .
INTRODUCTION What is RF Planning? Coverage and Capacity Calibration of Planning Tools (e.g. Asset) Frequency Plan What is RF Optimization? Network Analysis (Field Testing & Stats) Parameter Tuning (Soft Optimization) Physical Redesign (Hard Optimization) Maintain and Improve KPIs .
LITERATURE REVIEW .
PLANNING & OPTIMIZATION RELATIONSHIP Planning Implementation Site survey Capacity Optimization Evaluate Coverage Frequency Interference Parameter Design Optimization .
RF NETWORK CYCLE Benchmarking Voice Quality Drive Test Parametric Tuning In-Building Solutions RF Planning Traffic Engineering RF Network Cycle Expansion Planning Site Survey RF Optimization Hard & Soft Frequency Planning Neighbor List Site Parameters .
PLANNING STEPS Frequency Interference LAC Channel Parameter Coverage Propagation Capacity Neighbor cell Coverage E-map .
PLANNING TYPES Coverage: Depends upon the area (e.g. of radios must be finalized as per Capacity of the area What kind of site will be required for motorway? . Rural. Urban. Hilly. Highway) Frequency is inversely proportional to the Wave Length Capacity: Always comes with coverage area Capacity must be known properly before deciding for Coverage No.
Understand the current network configuration Collection of various performance reports of the currently deployed network Subscribers’ complaints Additional information showing the network quality and users perception .DATA COLLECTION Let’s begin! Data of network plan Network basic information collection The base of network plan and optimization The engineering survey data of new sites Confirm the network plan information The Engineering data of the current network Understand the current network The configuration NMS data.
RF OPTIMIZATION Quality Optimizatio n Cost Resources .
OPTIMIZATION OBJECTIVES Finding and correcting any existing problems after site implementation and integration Meeting the network quality criteria agreed Optimization is continuous and iterative process of improving overall network quality Optimization should not reduce the performance of the rest of the network Area of interest is divided in smaller areas called clusters to make optimization and follow up processes easier to handle .
