Module Objectives

At the end of this module the trainee should be able to:
Edit the common adjacency optimization parameters for a
separate deletion or creation of adjacencies
Set the required parameters for the automatic measurement-
based adjacency optimization
Perform adjacency optimization

GSM Adjacency optimization

How can I start the measurement-based adjacency
optimization?
How can I
• find the unused (unnecessary) adjacencies (deletion
plan)?
• find the missing adjacencies (creation plan)?

Prerequisites

Invalid adjacencies fixed
Antennas defined for every cell
Interference matrix available
Adjacency optimization KPIs available
Adjacency Constraints have been created or imported
Adjacency templates have been created for each object type
Template assignment rules have been created

Methods and Startup
Creation based on IM values, deletion based on ADCE KPIs
Check the KPI date and summarization level
Select target objects from the Navigator, Map or Browser

Starting GSM Adjacency optimization

Only ADCEs selected for measurement-based GSM
adjacency optimization
CIP or FEP can also be selected if available
• Check the retrieved IM sets and priorities

Common Parameters

Bidirectional optimization
(recommended)
Creation and deletion of
adjacencies into and out from
scope allowed
(recommended for small
scopes)
Check maximum and minimum
Adjacency List Lengths
Changes to adjacencies
between frequency bands can
be disabled
Frequency band specific list
length settings can be
enabled

Deletion Options for All Adjacency Types

Deleting outgoing
adjacencies to foreign
target cells can be
allowed
Adjacencies without
measurements will have 0
values for KPIs and are
deleted

Deletion Parameters for ADCE

Bidirectional
deletion requires at
least one bad value
in both directions
Additional
conditions can be
used to avoid
deleting adjacencies
in low traffic cells

Detailed Results on Deleted

Info column shows the creation/deletion reason
Include Change column defines the results to be saved in
the plan

Saving the Results
The results must be saved to the plan
Save is possible only to the plan that is open when Adjacency
optimization starts, or to a plan that is created after pressing
Save
After the save the results can be listed to Browser or shown
on the map

Exercise

Check and set Common parameters
Set Deletion parameters and start the optimization
• View the results and check different views in the Adjacency
Browser
• Change parameters and run again
Save the results into your plan

Creation Options for All Adjacency Types
Creating BCCH and BCCH-BSIC collisions can be allowed if
Frequency Optimization is done in the same plan
Normally BCCH or BCCH-BSIC collisions are not allowed
If there are existing collisions in the network no new adjacencies are
created for those cells unless collisions are allowed
