Graph coloring based physical-cell-ID assignment for LTE networks
Autoconfiguration of the radio parameters is a key feature for next generation mobile networks. Especially for LTE the NGMN Forum has brought it up as a major requirement. It is indispensable that algorithms used for autoconfiguration terminate quickly and do not cause infinite iterative reconfigurations within the network. Reference signal sequences are among the most important radio parameters for LTE, which are comparable to scrambling codes in 3G networks. In LTE they additionally serve as Cell Identifiers on the Physical Layer. Each cell is assigned one of the 504 available Physical Cell Identifiers. For proper operation the assignment has to be as well collision as also confusion free. Due to the high number and the layered structure of the cells within the network such an assignment is a complex task. In addition to this complexity each change of the Physical Cell ID of an operational cell causes a service interruption in the cell, which has to be avoided. The approach pr...
