Multi-tenancy allows diverse agents sharing the infrastructure in the 5th generation of mobile networks. Such a feature calls for more automated and faster planning procedures in order to adapt the network capacity to the varying traffic demand. To achieve these goals, Small Cells offer network providers more flexible, scalable, and cost-effective solutions compared to macrocell deployments. This paper proposes a novel framework for cell planning in multi-tenant Small Cell networks. In this…

Self-Dimensioning and Planning of Small Cell Capacity in Multitenant 5G Networks
A new framework for automated cell planning in multitenant small cell networks is proposed, taking advantage of the available network data, and the effectiveness of various methods to derive the planning specifications depending on the correlation between the tenant's and network's traffic demands is shown.
A novel optimal small cells deployment for next-generation cellular networks
A new approach is proposed that optimizes small cells deployment in cellular networks to achieve three objectives : reduce the total cost of network installation, balancing the allocation of resources, and providing optimal coverage area with a lower amount of interference between adjacent stations.

On the Automation of RAN Slicing Provisioning and Cell Planning in NG-RAN
A functional framework for the management of network slicing for a NG-RAN infrastructure is presented, identifying the necessary information models and interfaces to support the dynamic provisioning of RAN slices and a self-planning solution is presented to illustrate how a traditional network management process such as planning is expected to evolve to cope with the new challenges associated with RAN slicing management.
Design and Simulation of Optimal Number of Small Cells Deployment in Fourth-Generation Cellular Networks
The work proposed a new approach to evaluating the Number of Small Cells (NRS) deployment mathematically that provides the balance in resources allocation in the network in terms of transmitted power of each small cell and their placement in order to provide maximum capacity and coverage area with a lower level of interference between nearest wireless stations thus decreasing the total cost of network insulation.
