Automation of radio network management is a key determinant to work reduction for wireless operators. By replacing time consuming and costly tasks with automatic mechanisms, operational expenditure can be reduced. In this paper we present a method for automatic configuration of locally-unique physical cell identities and neighbor cell relation lists in 3G long term evolution (LTE). This method makes use of mobile measurements to update the neighbor cell relation lists in the cells and to detect…

Neighbour cell list management in wireless heterogeneous networks

A standard compliant mechanism is proposed in that the neighbouring cell list contains only relevant macrocell neighbours and is updated dynamically according to the users' measurements and confirms performance improvement both in terms of handover success rate as well as impact on battery life of users' equipment when the proposed scheme is deployed.

Evaluations of LTE Automatic Neighbor Relations

The results indicate that ANR configures discovered and needed neighbor relations such that handover can be performed in combination with the neighbor relation establishment without dropping the connection.

Auto-configuration of Physical Cell ID in LTE femtocellular systems using Self Organizing Networks
