Towards Random Access Channel Self-Tuning in LTE

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Future radio access networks are expected to show a high degree of self-organization. This paper addresses self-tuning of the Random Access CHannel (RACH) in the 3G Long Term Evolution (LTE). The feasibility of self-tuning is investigated by means of simulation, where the coupling between several parameters and the performance of RACH is provided. The conclusion of the simulations is that RACH self-tuning is indeed possible given that UE assisted measurements are available for the self-tuning mechanism.
