An integrated planning approach for cellular radio networks


R. Mathar, M. Schmeink,


        Different objective functions for optimal coverage in CDMA cellular radio networks are investigated in this work. The basic methodology is to first determine the number of necessary base transmitter stations (BTS) from a general stochastic model. Then, the corresponding number of base stations is selected out of a pool of candidate BTS in an optimal way. Optimality is measured by different criteria, e.g., the weighted number of captured traffic nodes, and certain functions of carrier-to-interference ratios at traffic nodes. As a prerequisite, a fast and accurate radio wave propagation tool for urban environments is necessary. For the real world examples of this paper an algortihm developed by the authors is used.
