A heuristics based approach for cellular mobile network planning
Designing and planning of the switching, signaling and support network is a fairly complex process in cellular mobile network. In this paper, the problem of assigning cells to switches in cellular mobile network, which is considered a planning problem, is addressed. The cell to switch assignment problem which falls under the category of the Quadratic Assignment Problem (QAP) is a proven NP– hard problem. Further, the problem is modeled to include an additional constraint in the formulation. The additional constraint is of the maximum number of switch ports that are used for a cell’s Base Station Transceiver System (BTS) connectivity to the switch. The addition of the constraint on the number of ports on a switch has immense practical significance. This paper presents a non– deterministic heuristic based on Simulated Evolution (SimE) iterative algorithm to provide solutions. The methods adopted in this paper are a completely innovative formulation of the problem and involve appl...
