— Automation of radio network management is a key determinant to work reduction for wireless operators. By replacing time consuming and costly tasks with automatic mechanisms, operational expenditure can be reduced. In this paper we present a method for automatic configuration of locally-unique physical cell identities and neighbor cell relation lists in 3G(More)
Operationally efficient radio networks typically feature a high degree of self-organization. This means less planning efforts and manual intervention, and a potential for better radio resource utilization when network elements adapts its operation to the observed local conditions. The focus in this paper is self-optimization of the random access channel(More)
Radio network management simplification concerns to some extent the removal, not the simplification, of tasks. In this paper we present an approach for automatic network management in 3G long term evolution (LTE), namely, methods for automatic configuration of locally-unique physical cell identities and neighbor cell relation lists. We show that these(More)
Tracking Area (TA) design is one of the key tasks in location management of Long Term Evolution (LTE) networks. TA enables to trace and page User Equipments (UEs). As UEs distribution and mobility patterns change over time, TA design may have to undergo revisions. For revising the TA design, the cells to be reconfigured typically have to be temporary torn(More)
