With the rapid development in mobile network effective network planning tool is needed to satisfy the need of customers. However, deciding upon the optimum placement for the Base Stations (BS) to achieve best services while reducing the cost is a complex task requiring vast computational resource. This paper addresses antenna placement problem or the cell planning problem, involves locating and configuring infrastructure for mobile networks. The Cluster Partitioning Around Medoids (PAM) original algorithm has been modified and a new algorithm M-PAM (Modified-Partitioning Around Medoids) has been proposed by the authors in a recent work.
