Visualization of Self Organizing Networks
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Magister), 20 points / 30 hpStudent thesis
An interactive visualization of self-organizing radio networks is developed. When the size and complexity of today’s radio networks grows, the need of automated network organizing methods increase to cut down on work, money and mistakes. The automation, however, leads the network operators to lose control over their own network and possible trust issues come along. Instead of giving back control to the operators, which would increase costs and work, Ericsson has suggested creating a visualization making clear that their self-organizing methods work as intended and letting the operator to efficiently explore their own network data.
In this thesis project a visualization application is developed allowing the network operator to explore the settings and performance of their network organized by Ericsson’s automatic algorithm called Automatic Neighbor Relations (ANR). The user can interact with the visualization by picking, filtering, and more, to find potential patterns in the data, find bad data values, and see how settings affect the performance of the network.
The visualization is built around a map where parameter and performance data is presented. Other visualization components come from the visualization framework GeoAnalytics Visualization (GAV), developed at Linköpings universitet, which also stands as a basis for the entire visualization.
