During the optimization of a Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM) network, the operations and maintenance center (OMC) measurements are of significant importance. Because of false predictions, the capacity planning of a cell may be done inaccurately. If the capacity of the cell is not adequate to handle all of the busy-hour requests, the requests are not granted a channel and users are blocked. Thus, when the blocking ratio is high, the cellular capacity should be replanned. However, the capacity planning should not rely on the raw OMC measurements since these are Inflated by the redials and retrials of the fresh calls, as well as the retrials of the hand-off call attempts. In this paper, we provide a simple-to-implement analytical model that computes the average number of retrials and redials per original call attempt using only the OMC statistics. The effective load is then determined through appropriate scaling. That way, unnecessary waste of channels to sustain the retrials and redials is avoided during the cellular capacity replanning phase.


Optimal deployment in randomly deployed heterogeneous WSNs: A connected coverage approach
SEVGİ, CÜNEYT; Koçyiğit, Altan (2014-11-01)
Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are resource-scarce networks and the optimization of the resources is challenging. As far as random deployment is concerned, the optimization of these resources becomes even more difficult In this paper, a novel framework is proposed for solving optimal deployment problems for randomly deployed and clustered WSNs. In several existing approaches to solve these problems, either only partial-coverage is considered or only connectivity is analyzed when full-coverage is assured. T...
Usage of device-to-device communication with multiple antennas at the cell edges Çoklu antenli cihazdan cihaza haberleşme yönteminin hücre kenarindaki alanlarda kullanimi
Erkan, Kerem; Yılmaz, Ali Özgür (2018-07-05)
5G technology is considered to bring dramatic improvements from the large scale data transmission to latency, from reliable data trasmission to energy efficiency. One significant improvement is expected in the communication rates between the mobile users at cell edges. Device-to-device (D2D) communication is an important technique to meet the higher data rates between the mobile users at cell edges compared to standard base station communication. In this paper, important decrease in the outage probability i...
Development of an ultra wide band (UWB) array antenna
Ceylan, Hasan Akın; Aydın Çivi, Hatice Özlem; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2022-4)
Demand for ultrawideband antenna arrays in telecommunications, space and airborne platforms, RADAR applications and MIMO systems, etc. is rising consistantly. A modern approach to develop an ultrawideband array is to utilize the mutual coupling between array elements. Even though individual elements are of narrowband characteristic in isolated form, they gain ultrawideband performance in array configuration under strong mutual coupling. In this work, an ultrawideband tightly coupled dipole array antenna is ...
Optimizing Multipath Routing With Guaranteed Fault Tolerance in Internet of Things
Hasan, Mohammed Zaki; Al-Turjman, Fadi (2017-10-01)
Internet of Things (IoTs) refers to the rapidly growing network of connected objects and people that are able to collect and exchange data using embedded sensors. To guarantee the connectivity among these objects and people, fault tolerance routing has to be significantly considered. In this paper, we propose a bio-inspired particle multi-swarm optimization (PMSO) routing algorithm to construct, recover, and select k-disjoint paths that tolerates the failure while satisfying the quality of service parameter...
Multi-layer network design problems in telecommunication
Yüksel Ergün, İnci; Kırca, Ömer; Süral, Haldun; Department of Industrial Engineering (2013)
The telecommunication network design problem is to configure a telecommunication network of major hardware and their links in order to satisfy traffic demands and flows subject to a set of constraints arising from topology, capacity, and technology. Telecommunication network design has been studied in several disciplines and its literature is intricate. In this study, we classify the telecommunication network design problems in the literature from the perspective of operations research and review the networ...
