Automatic Diagnosis of Mobile Communication Networks Under Imprecise Parameters

In the last years, self-organization of cellular networks is becoming a crucial aspect of network management due to the increasing complexity of the networks. Automatic fault identification, i.e. diagnosis, is the most difficult task in self-healing. In this paper, a model based on discrete Bayesian Networks (BNs) is proposed for diagnosis of radio access networks of cellular systems. Normally, inaccuracies are unavoidable in the parameters of the model (interval limits for discretized symptoms and probabilities in the BN). In order to enhance the performance of BNs, a methodology to model the ''Continuity'' in the human reasoning is presented, named Smooth Bayesian Networks (SBNs).
