Optimization of Base Station Location in 3G Networks using Mads and Fuzzy C-means

A. O. Onim, P. K. Kihato, S. Musyoki


Distribution of Base Transceiver Stations (BTS) with an aim of maintaining high Quality of Service and coverage is important to mobile operators. Rapid expansion of telecommunication industry results in stiff competition among service providers which in turn leads to greater focus on quality of services delivered. Increase in number of mobile phone usage has also led to unprecedented network expansion. Coupled to these challenges is rapid change in telecommunication technology from 2G to 4G in a short space of time. A combination of MADS and FUZZY C- MEANS is used to aid in planning Base Station Transceivers (BTS) location efficiently in order to curb capital and maintenance costs.

Keywords: BTS placement, MADS, Fuzzy C-Means
