Autonomous next generation wireless communication network optimization

Since the mid 1980s, moving access points, such as Wi-Fi, closer to network devices has been the largest contributer to improved data rates and this trend continues, but its scope is more difficult for rural internet service providers. The second technique is from the choice of the assigned spectrum and how this choice relates to other techniques to improve data rates. The third technique is from a combination of advanced signal processing techniques, involving antennas, beamforming, the allocation of available bandwidth and sampling the radio channels. Furthermore, the sampling of the radio channels is now possible by the use of UAVs which can be used for both planning and assessment of real-time operations.
