2009 (English)In: Proceedings of the 11th IFIP/IEEE International Symposium on Integrated Network Management, IEEE , 2009Conference paper (Refereed)
Operationally efficient radio networks typically feature a high degree of self-organization. This means less planning efforts and manual intervention, and a potential for better radio resource utilization when network elements adapts its operation to the observed local conditions. The focus in this paper is selfoptimization of the random access channel (RACH) in the 3G Long Term Evolution (LTE). A comprehensive tutorial about the RACH procedure is provided to span the complexity of the selfoptimization. Moreover, the paper addresses RACH key performance metrics and appropriate modeling of the various steps and components of the procedure. Finally, some coupling between parameters and key performance metrics as well as selfoptimization examples are presented together with a feasibility discussion. The main ambition with this workshop paper is to present and define a relevant set of self-optimization problems, rather than to provide a complete solution.
