Optimization of UMTS Network Planning Using Genetic Algorithms
The continuously growing of cellular networks complexity, which followed the introduction of UMTS technology, has reduced the usefulness of traditional design tools, making them quite unworthy. The purpose of this paper is to illustrate a design tool for UMTS optimized net planning based on genetic algorithms. In particular, some utilities for 3G net designers, useful to respect important aspects (such as the environmental one) of the cellular network, are shown. The extraordinary growth of mobile telecommunication sector of the last years has implied strong economical investments of enterprises that operate in this vital sector, in particular way from the net infrastructure point of view.
