Optimal antenna placement using a new multi-objective chc algorithm
Radio network design (RND) is a fundamental problem in cellular networks for telecommunications. In these networks, the terrain must be covered by a set of base stations (or antennae), each of which defines a covered area called cell. The problem may be reduced to figure out the optimal placement of antennae out of a list of candidate sites trying to satisfy two objectives: to maximize the area covered by the radio signal and to reduce the number of used antennae. Consequently, RND is a bi-objective optimization problem. Previous works have solved the problem by using single-objective techniques which combine the values of both objectives. The used techniques have allowed to find optimal solutions according to the defined objective, thus yielding a unique solution instead of the set of Pareto optimal solutions. In this paper, we solve the RND problem using a multi-objective version of the algorithm CHC, which is the metaheuristic having reported the best results when solving the s...
