Claim of US Patent No. 10,602,522

1. A method, comprising:estimating, by a system comprising a processor, an impact of an application of antenna tilt values in a direction of propagation of a location that is associated with a majority of mobile devices that have been determined to have been communicatively coupled to a cluster of wireless access point devices corresponding to the location, wherein a first wireless access point device of the cluster of wireless access point devices has been selected for the cluster based on a defined condition being determined to be present, wherein the defined condition represents at least an amount of interference is present between the first wireless access point device and a second wireless access point device of the cluster of wireless access point devices; and
in response to the estimating, selecting, by the system, the antenna tilt value for the first wireless access point device of the cluster of wireless access point devices to facilitate a reduction in at least the amount of interference.
