With the increase of the mobile network complexity, minimizing the level of human intervention in the network management and troubleshooting has become a crucial factor. This paper focuses on enhancing the level of automation in the network management by dynamically learning the mobile network cell states and improving the anomaly detection on the(More)
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) aim at simplifying network management (NM) and optimizing network capital and operational expenditure through automation. Most SON functions (SFs) are rule-based control structures, which evaluate metrics and decide actions based on a set of rules. These rigid structures are, however, very complex to design since rules must be(More)
