Self Organizing Networks

The need to densify mobile network radio coverage means that smaller cells and HetNets are a vital part of the overall RAN solution, which unfortunately makes the management of the radio environment extremely complex. This course therefore sets out to describe the concepts behind self organizing networks, including explanations of self configuration, optimization and healing.
