Abstract


These days long term evaluation (LTE) is considered the common mobile technology around the world and there is a need to maximize the network performance to satisfy the increased demand in terms of the cell capacity and coverage. These are many parameters in the network configuration and in the surrounded environment, which have great effects on the network performance. Examples of parameters are the system overhead rations, the required capacity of the network, neighbor cell load, and link budget parameters. The determination of the optimum configuration parameters, which achieve the best network performance, is a main step in the planning process in addition to it is continuous step in network optimization phase. In this study, the effects of some parameters will be investigating to get the best parameters that achieve the best network performance in terms of capacity of the cells and coverage area. The study will start by discussing introduction about LTE network components and protocols, and then the main parameters of the protocols will be revising. The study will display the results of changing many parameters related to LTE protocols and surrounding environment parameters on the LTE network performance.
