An Enhanced Weighted Performance-Based Handover Parameter Optimization Algorithm for LTE Networks

This paper introduces an enhanced version of previously developed self-optimizing algorithm that controls the HandOver (HO) parameters of a long-term evolution base station in order to diminish and prevent the negative effects that can be introduced by HO (radio link failures, HO failures and ping-pong HOs) and thus, improve the overall network performance. The default algorithm selects the best hysteresis and time-to-trigger combination based on the current network status. The enhancement proposed here aims to maximize the gain provided by the algorithm by improving its convergence time.
