Recent developments in mobile networks have looked at placing more autonomy and intelligence at base stations to encourage cooperation between them using a distributed approach in order to try and develop a network more robust to attacks and failures. A real time fully distributed algorithm that would allow base stations in cellular networks to autonomously and cooperatively find the wireless coverage pattern to optimize network performance is described. The semi-smart antenna system is assumed at each base station. Simulations based on Mobile WiMAX technology show the effectiveness and robustness of the approach.
