Automatic Cell Planning (ACP) tools allow operators to automatically find the best options to plan new sites or additional capacity for existing sites.
A typical use case of ACP tools for Radio Access Network planning is the automatic selection of the best sites for small cells among a list of candidates to achieve coverage or capacity objectives. Automatic Cell Planning tools are usually based on sophisticated mathematical optimisation algorithms that find an optimal solution.
Atoll Automatic Cell Planning (ACP) module combines prediction-based inputs and live-network data to support both RAN (Radio Access Network) planning and optimisation activities within operators organisations. Predictions, KPIs and geolocated mobile traces can be used as inputs to cover a number of use cases such as site selection, small cell planning, capacity planning and optimisation.
