Opinion: How machine learning can help operators detect small cell anomalies

Most mobile operators run heterogeneous networks (HetNets), combining various cell types and technologies. The use of small cells in these networks has grown hugely in recent years, partly because smalls cells supply network coverage for indoor public spaces. Indoor spaces account for roughly 80% of today’s mobile data traffic.

Small cells and HetNets are thus vital to modern mobile communications, but while standard self-organising networks (SONs) can self-heal, this does not work well with HetNets. As...
