Pilot power management in radio network planning for WCDMA networks
2005 (English)Licentiate thesis, monograph (Other academic)
The high price of auction-based 3G licences and the growing competition in telecommunications market is putting enormous pressure on manufacturers and operators to configure the next-generation mobile network in the most cost-effective way possible providing high quality 3G services. Therefore, aiming to improve overall network performance and to ensure efficient utilization of network resources, radio network planning and optimization became even more important thar. in previous generation networks. On the other hand, in 3G networks, due to support of multiple services, high data rates, low frequency reuse, higher spectral loading and interference levels, and much uncertainty about future traffic growth. these processes became more challenging tasks.
This thesis addresses the problem of pilot power optimization in WCDMA (Wideband Code Division Multiple Access) networks studying such issues as a trade-off between coverage of the service area and pilot power consumption, load balancing, and soft handover control. In the thesis, the author presents a number of pilot power optimization models, discusses the solution approaches. and reports numerical results obtained for test networks of various sizes based on real planning scenarios.
