Future mobile communication systems will benefit from a significant degree of self-organization. Self-Organization (SON) methods have become one of the hot topics in wireless networks; these methods are a promising concept to automate the planning, deployment and optimization of radio access networks. In Self-Organizing Networks (SON), load balancing has been recognized as an effective means to increase network performance. In this paper, we present a framework for self-optimizing next generation mobile networks, such as 3G LTE. A load balancing algorithm based on automatic adjustment of handover thresholds in an LTE network is discussed.
