Exemplary apparatuses and methods are provided that address how to optimize automatic neighbor relations. Specifically, a base station receives measurements from a mobile terminal connected thereto. The base station determines neighbor relations from the received measurements that includes identifiers of other base stations in neighboring cells detected by the mobile terminal. The base station determines a number of communication links needed to exchange data with the other base stations. The base station prioritizes the neighbor relations from a lowest priority level to a highest priority level before a maximum number of communication links needed to exchange data is exceeded. The base station may delete neighbor relations with the lowest priority level from the base station's Neighbor Relation Table so that the base station can support new neighbor relations, more efficient hand-offs, and improve network performance. The base station may hand-off calls to base stations selected from the prioritized neighbor relations.
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.
