The Summary


The goal of the network planning is not only to define the initial network roll-out targets, but also to provide moving targets to the continuous process that takes the whole life time of the network. Before the 3G network is launched, all the work is focused on estimating how the network should look like. After the network launch customer intake and behaviour will decide the network development direction.

The most demanding tasks are to gather all the required information for the planning work and making the network roll-out decisions based on all these estimations, operator demands and assumptions of future costs. Cost estimations are usually very sensitive to the changes in basic assumptions and it is crucial that all assumptions are recorded to the network roll-out plan.

Picture below show the issues that vendors and operators face in the beginning of the network roll-out.
