The vision of Self-Organizing Networks (SON) has been drawing considerable attention as a major axis for the development of future networks. As an essential functionality in SON, cell outage detection is developed to autonomously detect macrocells or femtocells that are inoperative and unable to provide service. Previous cell outage detection approaches have mainly focused on macrocells while the outage issue in the emerging femtocell networks is less discussed. However, due to the two-tier… CONTINUE READING
