Self-planning, Self-optimization and Self-healing for GSM, UMTS, and LTEeBook - 2012
Written by leading experts in the planning and optimization ofMulti-Technology and Multi-Vendor wireless networks, this bookdescribes the architecture of Multi-Technology SON for GSM, UMTSand LTE, along with the enabling technologies for SON planning,optimization and healing. This is presented mainly from atechnology point of view, but also covers some critical businessaspects, such as the ROI of the proposed SON functionalities andUse Cases.
Key features:Follows a truly Multi-Technology approach: covering not onlyLTE, but also GSM and UMTS, including architectural considerationsof deploying SON in today's GSM and UMTS networks Features detailed discussions about the relevant trade-offs ineach Use Case Includes field results of today's GSM and UMTS SONimplementations in live networks Addresses the calculation of ROI for Multi-Technology SON,contributing to a more complete and strategic view of the SONparadigm
This book will appeal to network planners, optimizationengineers, technical/strategy managers with operators andR&D/system engineers at infrastructure and software vendors. Itwill also be a useful resource for postgraduate students andresearchers in automated wireless network planning andoptimization.
