A method of small cell deployment is performed in response to an initialization request or a performance alarm. The method includes selecting an initial number (N) of small cell candidate locations of one or more feasible small cell locations for small cells on a three dimensional grid of nodes representation of an area of interest and determining, feasible M-sized small cell tuples having small cells that do not conflict with each other, wherein M has an initial value less than or equal to N. The method also computes at least one performance Key Performance Indicator (KPI) for a subset of the feasible M-sized small cell tuples, and searches for a first tuple of the subset of the feasible M-sized small cell tuples, the at least one performance KPI of the first tuple satisfying one or more constraints on the small cell deployment.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
