Introduction: Spectral efficiency is key to supporting a large subscriber base on limited available spectrum. To maximize the use of spectrum, a mix of footprint optimization or RF shaping is required in conjunction with parameter tuning and feature optimization. Cluster/Area optimization of a LTE and 3G network with macro and oDAS layers requires a complete cell footprint view in order to effectively optimize and maintain performance in a mature wireless network.
Introduction: RF networks have evolved from tower-top and roof-top macro sites to a combination of macro, iDAS/oDAS (indoor/outdoor Distributed Antenna Systems), small cell and hetnets. The prime motivation for this network evolution is for the improvement in network quality demanded by subscribers. The propagation tools used for the initial design of these networks is typically inadequate in modelling and adapting to the evolving networks types deployed.
