Abstract

Long Term Evolution (LTE) is the next major step in mobile radio communications and is introduced in 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) Release 8. It is the last step toward the 4th generation (4G) of radio technologies designed to increase the capacity and speed of mobile telephone networks. With industrial attachment very few radio planning works of LTE are going on. But because of certain commercial issues those works aren't widely available. Radio network planning is a very vital step for wireless communication technology. As standardization work of LTE is approaching the end line, it is high time to go for efficient radio network planning guideline for LTE. In LTE just like other cellular technologies, initial planning is normally guided by various industries and vendors at their own discretion. They aren't likely to disclose their advancements and findings. That makes the job even more challenging. As a result, going on with LTE radio network planning perspective is a well-chosen challenge and a certain hot topic in the current research arena. In this work, a detailed LTE radio network planning procedure has been elaborated which concentrates on nominal and detailed planning considering possible network implementation in the densely populated South-Asian city-Dhaka.
