The Use of Self-Organizing Networks in LTE in Accordance with 3GPP Standards

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • Elements and parameters of the LTE networks are configured manually on a large scale. The complication or problem with manual configuring LTE networks is that it demands great expertise and effort at the operator's end. The deployment of new base stations, configurations, making neighbor relations, healing of networks and managing the operational network are the main areas where huge manual effort and expertise is required. Human interaction with the network architecture and functions are prone to errors and cost-intensive too. With the increase in data traffic, manual
    configurations are getting more complicated and therefore there was a sheer need of a system that can redefine operations carried out by
    the network in order to achieve optimal performance. Self-Organizing Networks (SON) were therefore introduced by 3GPP which ensures operational efficiency and automate the mobile wireless networks. For my project, I will be discussing all the Functions of SON and its Architecture in Long Term Evolution with accordance to the 3GPP standards through analysis and research.
