Cost and Feasibility Analysis of Self-Deployed Cellular Network
A self-deployed network is considered to be one of cost-efficient deployment solutions by skipping an expensive network planning process. However, it may result in the serious degradation of capacity or the infeasibility of coverage constraint due to the rise of interference although radio adaptation techniques are employed. Therefore, deployment decision makers, e.g., operators, need to identify when and where the self-deployed network is feasible and economical compared with the planned network. For this, the authors estimate the average network throughput of the self-deployed network subject to a coverage constraint and compare it with the planned network.
