Title: METHODS FOR CONTROLLING AN ANTENNA SYSTEM, TRANSMITTING AN INDICATOR, A COMPUTER SYSTEM AND WIRELESS TERMINAL
Abstract:
A method is disclosed for controlling an antenna system of a radio access network to change a coverage area of a cell of the radio access network from a first area to a second area. The method comprises transmitting a signal associated with the cell to a plurality of wireless terminals in the first area, receiving from the plurality of wireless terminals respective indicators, wherein each indicator has been determined by a wireless terminal on the basis of the signal and wherein the indicators comprise or are indicative of respective sets of one or more parameters, e.g. antenna configuration parameters, selecting from the sets a group of one or more similar sets, determining a further set of one or more parameters, e.g. antenna configuration parameters, on the basis of the group of one or more similar sets, controlling the antenna system to change the coverage area of the cell from the first to the second area on the basis of the further set of parameters.
