Is anyone living or working in these areas that could confirm any benefits of this Lucent x TNZ trial?

"This technology, called dynamic optimization, makes adjustments to Telecom New Zealand's mobile network throughout the day in response to changing traffic patterns.

Dynamic optimization is being tested on Telecom New Zealand's commercial 027 network (CDMA) in the Lower Hutt, Taranaki, Bay of Plenty and Mt. Eden regions. Lucent originally built the 027 mobile network and currently manages it for Telecom New Zealand.

"Dynamic optimization gives us an entirely new way of managing network traffic," says Mike Flanagan, Bell Labs technical manager, who is overseeing the testing. "Traditionally, communications networks are designed around a static scenario based on peak usage patterns. But of course traffic patterns are always changing. In the evenings the majority of mobile device use is at the home, during the day it is in the office area, and during rush hours along the major traffic arteries. By creating a network that can optimize itself dynamically to adjust to the changing network needs throughout the day we can enable service providers to improve quality of service related to the delivery of mobile voice and data services."

Dynamic optimization technology leverages Bell Labs' Ocelot software. Bell Labs has combined Ocelot with real-time technologies that measure usage patterns and performance conditions across an entire network at any given time of day. Armed with this information, Ocelot is used to find the best network parameters to achieve optimal capacity and coverage. These network parameters include base station transmit power levels as well as programmable antenna orientation.

This is currently running off a few sites in the Hutt - the Waterloo Railway Stn, Lower Hutt Exchange and VIC Corner sites have all have these special panel's for a few months now.

As to how it works I don't know but it's certainly an interesting concept.

It involves motorising some of your cells, so they aren't pointing in one direction anymore, so they can be moved around within a sector. For example, if there is a lot of calls on the hutt motorway, you can turn the hutt cells to point there, theoretically increasing the radio and capacity available (at the cost of your original footprint of course).

Equally, you can resize a sector and allow more to be 'listened to', theoretically increasing capacity.

If it all works - and given Lucent's abilities I see no reason why they cant do it - it could be quite propeller-heady.
