Creating and sharing knowledge for telecommunications

Project: Models and Simulations for Network Planning and Control of UMTS

Main Objective:
MOMENTUM aims at a long lasting impact on the development of UMTS planning tools. Major players of system manufacturers, network operators, service providers, and operations research facilities have joined to meet the challenge of analysing UMTS system-behaviour and of developing powerful new planning methods for UMTS. MOMENTUM will: characterise new services UMTS is going to deliver; build usage profiles and planning scenarios to model the future demands; build the most advanced UMTS real-time system-level simulator; use the scenarios and the simulator to better understand the dynamics of UMTS networks and their sensitivity to system parameter settings; develop flexible models, algorithms, and new planning methods for the deployment of the future wireless telecommunication infrastructure; build and publish a library of UMTS scenarios and test cases to be used as a benchmark in the development of planning tools.
