Claim of US Patent No. 10,485,004

1. A self-optimizing network entity configured for use with a distributed antenna system having a head end-unit configured to communicate wireless communication information to a plurality of remote units for transmission at a plurality of sites, the self-optimized network entity comprising:circuitry configured to:
determine a network resource allocation plan for the plurality of remote units within the distributed antenna system based on an isolation level determined by at least one of the plurality of remote units based on a power level of a test signal received from at least one of the plurality of remote units;
define an isolation threshold indicating a minimum isolation level between the plurality of remote units; and
determine whether the isolation level exceeds the isolation threshold, wherein the plurality of remote units are configured to at least one of:
receive copies of the same signal using the same network resources when the isolation level exceeds the isolation threshold;
radiate signals using the same network resources when the isolation level exceeds the isolation threshold;
radiate signals using different network resources when the isolation level does not exceed the isolation threshold; or
radiate copies of a same signal when the isolation level does not exceed the isolation threshold.
