— This paper proposes relay specific self-organized functions to optimize the Donor eNB (DeNB) selection upon alternating load and mobility conditions or when specific donors are out of operation due to failure. Initially, we identify the main parameters that influence such donor selection process introducing the inter-DeNB handover and the re-configuration(More)
