The deployment strategy of cellular network is a complete plan that includes evaluation mechanisms, processes, and algorithms to deploy base stations of cellular network. The aim of evaluation mechanisms is to assess the performance of deployment solution that the user can notice the improvements barely. The common definition of process is a series of actions to achieve deployment goals, and the algorithm is brought up for mathematical instructions or rules that are designed according to deployment goal.

Historical Background

In order to cover the communication range of large areas, the early mobile radio systems generally adopt high-power transmitters and then built them in higher geographical locations. However, the used frequency bands in the covered area could not be reused since they may cause interference when other transmitters used the same frequency band at the same time. In the healthcare field, some reports show...
