From the back cover ...
Understanding UMTS Radio Network Modelling, Planning and Automated Optimisation: Theory and Practice sets out to provide the theoretical foundations that will enable radio network planners to plan, model and optimise radio networks using state-of-the-art findings from around the globe. Adopting a logical approach, it begins with the background to the present status of UMTS radio network technology, before devoting equal coverage to planning, modelling and optimisation issues. A broad-based supply of information is given, gleaned from cutting-edge research by worldwide experts in academia and industry.

All key planning areas are covered, including the technical and legal implications of network infrastructure sharing, hierarchical cell structure (HCS) deployment, ultra-high-site deployment and the benefits and limitations of using computer-aided design (CAD) software. In addition, theoretical models for UMTS technology are explained as generic system models, stand-alone services and mixed services. Business modelling theory and methods are also put forward, taking in propagation calculations, link-level, UMTS static and UMTS dynamic simulations.
  • Offers a solid theoretical background in the areas of modelling automatic and manual optimisation, which differs from the more practical guides available.
  • Covers all the key technologies: UMTS (Universal Mobile Telecommunications Service) FDD (Frequency Division Duplex) with UHS (Ultra-High-Site) and UTRAN LMDS/WiMAX backhaul systems.
  • Avoids explanations on a case-by-case basis, providing instead general mathematical tools that can be applied to understand, analyze and optimise complex system performance.
  • The challenges and goals of the automated optimisation process are explored in depth using cutting-edge cost function and optimisation algorithms.
Highly relevant to radio network operators (planning and optimisation staff, system marketing, technical managers) and telecommunications equipment providers, this book will also appeal to postgraduate and research students in the field of telecommunications and radio networking.
