Coordination Tasks

What do we need to be able to do for successful coordination?

Link and interference analysis:

  • Link budget / C/N analysis
  • Interference analysis
  • Margin analysis
  • Proposing technical solutions

Data gathering and processing:

  • Collecting information about other networks
  • Understanding regulatory issues
  • Analysing transmission parameters to support technical analysis
Software Tools
Software tools can assist with all these tasks:
  • Data searching, manipulation and analysis
  • Pre-calculation dataset preparation
  • Calculation and technical analysis

Software is available from a number of sources, but the main "software" needed to do successful coordination is in your own brain! 

So we will look at some manual analysis before we review software tools.

Next: Section 2 - Link & Interference Analysis
