A Hybrid Optimization Framework for Cutting and Packing Problems
GSM Network Designs usually offers big challenges for achieving an efficient cost while respecting the complex combinatorial technical constraints. This networks have hundred or thousands BTS. They have their traffic grouped in hubs, then in BSC nodes to reach the MSC. Hubs must be elected within the BTS set and BSC nodes have to be geographically allocated in the available sites. Also, the number and model of these BSC impact in the overall cost while the distances affect the transmission costs. This paper presents a mathematical model to offer a tool that designs a GSM network from the BTS lower layer until the MSC layer.
