The invention relates to a method for estimating a Wi-Fi hotspot deployment location and a system thereof, in particular to a defect and deployment of a Wi-Fi hotspot, so as to assist in finding a suitable Wi-Fi hotspot location. Wi-Fi potential hotspot deployment location estimation method and system thereof.

With the evolution of the communication technology, the human life style has also evolved along with the trend of technology. As the development of wireless Internet devices has matured, the era of wireless Internet access has suddenly come. Among them, Wi-Fi wireless Internet has become one of the mainstream of wireless Internet access in the world in recent years, so various telecom operators are also actively involved in the deployment of Wi-Fi hotspots. Due to the limited coverage of AP equipment, it is necessary to build a hot spot to achieve good coverage. However, the cost of construction must be effectively controlled. Otherwise, it will only increase the construction cost. Therefore, how to carefully select the location of the hotspot to achieve accuracy. Construction has become an issue that telecom operators need to consider.

However, when telecom operators choose hotspot deployment sites in the initial stage of construction, they do not have a clear direction. They can only build hotspots in restaurants, convenience stores, etc., or find crowded areas by cooperating with merchants. Such as commercial districts, mass transit stations and other places to build hot spots to increase the use of hot spots. However, such a layout is like fishing in an unknown sea area. It can only be blindly distributed but it is impossible to predict the effectiveness of construction. This is undoubtedly a major harm to the construction costs and manpower expenditure of telecom operators.

If the telecom operators can have a clear reference basis when considering the location of the layout, it can not only narrow the scope, improve the effectiveness of the construction, but also effectively reduce the time and construction cost. Among them, one of the main goals of building a Wi-Fi hotspot is to alleviate the problem of full bandwidth of 3G mobile Internet bandwidth. Setting up a Wi-Fi hotspot in a region with high 3G traffic can not only effectively use hotspots. And it can improve the performance of 3G off-load, so it is a useful reference when building hotspots. One of the basis. For the hotspots that have been built, if there are hotspots with high traffic usage, it means that the region has a strong demand for Wi-Fi mobile Internet access, so it is more reliable to add hotspots around it.

In summary, the demand for wireless Internet access has become a trend, so Wi-Fi wireless is available. Internet service is a building direction that telecom operators must actively invest in, and accelerating the deployment of Wi-Fi hotspots can improve the quality of wireless Internet services. Therefore, when building a hot spot, adding reference factors as a consideration, and using a systematic method of selecting points to solve the inconvenience of manual selection and the time and cost of the problem, it is imperative to shorten the problem in a more efficient way. It is imperative to take time and improve the accuracy of the layout to speed up the construction of the time.

Taiwan Patent I394479 proposes a node deployment device, node construction method and Its computer program product. In this patent, the number of connectable mobile stations and the coverage of the signal can be determined according to the number of connectable mobile stations and signal coverage of multiple nodes in a space where several mobile stations have been built, to determine the location of the new wireless network node. To complete a space wireless network node deployment operation. However, the patent cannot effectively determine the candidate location of the node in a region where no hotspot has been built to determine the location of the subsequent node deployment, and the number of connectable mobile stations for each node to construct the candidate location is actually It will change at any time due to a variety of factors. Therefore, there is still doubt about the correctness of the location of the wireless network node based on the number of connectable mobile stations.

It can be seen that there are still many shortcomings in the above-mentioned methods of use, which is not a good one. And need to be improved.

In view of the shortcomings derived from the above-mentioned conventional methods, the inventor of the present invention After improving and innovating, and after years of painstaking research, I finally succeeded in researching and developing the method and system for estimating the potential hotspot location of this Wi-Fi.

Among them, the wireless access equipment or block with high crowd intensity such as commercial area or transportation hub can obtain higher deployment points; more optical junctions, or wireless with higher circuit speed Higher deployment points can be obtained by picking up equipment or blocks; wireless access equipment or blocks with higher traffic volume can obtain higher construction points; wireless access equipment or blocks with higher customer complaints A higher build point can be obtained.

After completing the statistics of the deployment points of each wireless access device, the distribution system can be based on The results are sorted from high to low, and the priority of the wireless access device is set. The wireless access device with high built-in points is selected as the target wireless access device, and the display interface unit 4 can be used according to the geographic map. The information estimates the geographic location around these targeted wireless access devices that are suitable for deploying new hotspots.

Taking a hotspot deployment estimation index Ry to calculate the deployment integral S Dx of a wireless access device D x as an embodiment, the deployment integral S Dx can be summarized as follows: S Dx =S DxRy , where S Table construction integral; D x table xth wireless access device, where x>=1; Ry table yth hotspot construction estimation reference index, where y>=1.

The location of the new hotspot.

As shown in Fig. 4, the deployment index S mn of a block Bmn is calculated by selecting a hot spot construction estimation reference index Ry as an embodiment, and the construction integral S Bmn can be summarized as follows: S Bmn = S D1Ry + S D2Ry +...+S Dx-1Ry +S DxRy , where S table layout integral; Bmn table m column n row block; Dx table xth wireless access device, where x>=1; The yth hotspot of the Ry table is used to estimate the reference index, where y>=1. If the wireless access device Dx does not fall within the block Bmn, then the deployment index SDxRy of the hotspot deployment estimation index is 0.

Therefore, by selecting all hotspot construction estimation reference indicators R to calculate the construction integral S Bmn of a block Bmn as an example, the construction integral S Bmn can be summarized as follows: S Bmn =S D1R1 +S D1R2 + ...+S D1Ry-1 +S D1Ry +...+S DxR1 +S DxR2 +...+S DxRy-1 +S DxRy , where S is the integral of the table; the nth row and the m column of the Bmn table The xth wireless access device of the Dx table, where x>=1; the yth hotspot of the Ry table is used to estimate the reference index, where y>=1. If the wireless access device Dx does not fall within the block Bmn, or the hotspot deployment estimation reference indicator Ry is not selected for inclusion in the reference, the deployment index of the hotspot deployment reference index is D DRRy Is 0.

For example, in block B33 in FIG. 4, the wireless access devices D1 and D3 are included, and if the hotspot deployment estimation reference indicators R2 and R4 are selected as the reference basis, the built-in integral S B33 of the block B33 is: S B33 = S D1R2 + S D1R4 + S D3R2 + S D3R4 .

Preferably, a different weight Wy can be set for each hotspot deployment estimation index Ry, and the built-in integral can be summarized as follows: S Bmn =S D1R1 * W1 +S D1R2 * W2 +...+ S D1Ry-1 * Wy-1 +S D1Ry * Wy +...+S DxR1 * W1 +S DxR2 * W2 +...+S DxRy-1 * Wy-1 +S DxRy * Wy , where S table cloth Build the integral; the nth row and the m column of the Bmn table; the xth wireless access device of the D x table, where x>=1; the yth hotspot construction estimation index of the Ry table, where y>=1; Wy The yth hotspot of the table is used to estimate the weight of the reference indicator, where y>=1. If the wireless access device Dx does not fall within the block Bmn, or the hotspot deployment estimation reference indicator Ry is not selected for inclusion in the reference, then the deployment index of the hotspot deployment reference indicator S DxRy * Wy is 0.

If the block B33 in FIG. 4 includes the wireless access devices D1 and D3, if the hotspot deployment estimation reference indicators R2 and R4 are selected as the reference basis, the built-in integral S B33 of the block B33 is: S B33 = S D1R2 * W2 + S D1R4 * W4 + S D3R2 * W2 + S D3R4 * W4 .
