Systems and methods for determining an over power subscription adjustment for a Radio Equipment (RE) are provided. In some embodiments, a method of operation of an RE includes determining an over power subscription adjustment for one or more carriers based on one or more system parameters and providing the over power subscription adjustment to a Radio Equipment Controller (REC) for the one or more carriers. According to some embodiments, this permits the network operator to better utilize radio network resources by over subscribing carrier power levels. The operator can do this without exposing radio hardware to damage by adaptive learning of Mean Power Limiting (MPL) parameters. Further, the degree of over subscription can be dynamically adjusted to suit network operating conditions. This can lead to improved quality of service metrics and increased radio sector cell size.
