A Study on CellularWireless Traffic Modeling and Prediction Using Elman Neural Networks


Paper abstract

Modern cellular resourcemanagement for dynamic control of channel resources and energy efficiencyimprovement relies largely on early and accurate monitoring and prediction ofcellular base station traffic volumes. Analysis of network traffic volume over spaceand time plays an important role in traffic prediction. In this paper, weexamine both the temporal and spatial characteristics of cellular traffic datagenerated by users in a large population city in China. We analyze and clusterbase-stations of similar characteristics. We determine the sliding window sizesand integrate the Elman Neural Network (ENN) after applying wavelet transformin order to realize traffic volume prediction. We present numerical results toillustrate the accuracy of wireless traffic volume prediction, and we test theperformance of our method to demonstrate improvement over some existingmethods.
