Dynamic clusters (Dynamic Location of Phone Call Clusters)

Hewett, David and Hicks, Peter and Howell, Peter and Fiedler, Juliusz and Ockendon, John and Pachon, Ricardo and Smith, Honora and Wilson, Eddie and Armour, Tristram (2008) Dynamic clusters (Dynamic Location of Phone Call Clusters). [Study Group Report]



When mobile handsets are making a call, a measurement report is sent to the serving base station periodically which includes the signal strengths to the base station and the next six strongest signals of the surrounding base stations. Motorola asked the Study Group if it was possible to say whether we could use this information to infer if phone calls occur in clusters and if it was possible to determine the locations, size and other features of these clusters.

The Study Group found clusters in 'signal space,' that is, handsets reporting similar signal strengths with the same base stations and explored methods of locating these clusters geographically.
