Case Studies

The Stadium case study

A methodology for optimizing 4G network operation in crowded events


The Case:

  • A stadium hosts various events with the participation of thousands of spectators
  • During these events, mobile services are used extensively
  • Due to high utilization, network failures may occur
  • Modifications of the radio access network policy in coverage and resource allocation are needed

The Solution:

Basic Cell Insight Measurement unit:

  • Composed by three main devices:
    • –The LTE DOWNLINK Sniffer
    • –An SDR-based UE able to attach to the network
    • –The LTE UPLINK Sniffer
  • All devices are built in low-cost generic hardware
  • The LTE Sniffers use complete in-house developed software

The Result:

  •  Optimization Report Study


  • Provision of the Simulation Tool for the area
