A Self-Organising Network (SON) represents an approach where the optimisation of a mobile radio network is automated through a set of independently operating SON functions. These SON functions, however, require to be configured in order to allow for an optimised network performance with respect to technical objectives defined by the network operator. The SEMAFOUR demonstrator shows a concept for SON management based on operator objectives, where the SON function configuration is performed in an automated way. The demonstrator illustrates the different aspects and complexity of the management of SON in a heterogeneous network.
