—Increased demand for higher user throughput has led to deployment of multi-layer networks commonly called heterogeneous networks (Hetnets). Therein, small cells are deployed alongside traditional macro cells, in many cases on the same spectrum. Such scenarios complicate the configuration of network parameters such as the Physical Cell Identity (PCI). A(More)
—Self-Organizing Networks (SON) and a number of SO functions (SFs) have been proposed, e.g. in the LTE standard. Since SFs operate on the same network, adjusting the same set of parameters, conflicts arise. Mechanisms are thus required to resolve or minimize these conflicts. We propose Space-Time scheduling procedures that allow for separating the execution(More)
