  • Patent number: 11812286
    Abstract: Radio access network controller-based mobility optimization is disclosed. Mobility reports are received at a radio access network controller from multiple network node devices, each mobility report reporting at least one individual failure event to complement one or more aggregated mobility event counters and/or one or more aggregated performance measurement reports. The mobility reports are related to client devices in one or more service areas. The radio access network controller analyzes the received mobility reports. In response to the analyzing resulting in a perceived need for an update of a cell configuration of a service area of the one or more service areas, the radio access network controller determines updated cell configuration information for the service area. The updated cell configuration information is transmitted from the radio access network controller to-wards at least one network node device in the service area.
