Analysis of soft handover measurements in 3G network
A neural network based clustering method for the analysis of soft handovers in 3G network is introduced. The method is highly visual and it could be utilized in explorative analysis of mobile networks. In this paper, the method is used to find groups of similar mobile cell pairs in the sense of handover measurements. The groups or clusters found by the method are characterized by the rate of successful handovers as well as the causes of failing handover attempts. The most interesting clusters are those which represent certain type of problems in handover attempts. By comparing variable histograms of a selected cluster to histograms of the whole data set an application domain expert may find some explanations on problems. Two clusters are investigated further and causes of failing handover attempts are discussed.
