Machine learning will play a major role in handling the complexity of future mobile wireless networks by improving network management and orchestration capabilities. Due to the large number of parameters that can be monitored and configured in the network, collecting and processing high volumes of data is often unfeasible or too expensive at network runtime, which calls for taking resource management and service orchestration decisions with only a partial view of the network status. Motivated… Expand

Deep Completion Autoencoders for Radio Map Estimation
This paper proposes a novel approach in which the spatial structure of propagation phenomena such as shadowing is learned beforehand from a data set with measurements in other environments, and a significantly smaller number of measurements is therefore required to estimate a map with a prescribed accuracy.

Validation of Tilt Gain under Realistic Path Loss Model and Network Scenario
It is shown that a more detailed semi-deterministic model leads to both lower gains in terms of SINR, outage probability and downlink throughput and lower optimum tilt settings, and that care must be taken when using the 3GPP model to evaluate advanced adaptive antenna techniques, especially those operating in the elevation dimension.
