Title: Automatic frequency planning for a wireless network

Abstract: A system and method for automatic frequency planning in a wireless communications network is disclosed. The method determines frequency isolation between a first and second cell of the wireless communication network. The method broadcasts a first frequency in the first cell and a second frequency in the second cell. A mobile unit operating in the first cell measures both the first and second frequencies and reports the measurements using a mobile assisted handoff (MAHO) procedure. In some embodiments, the mobile unit repeatedly measures and reports the first and second frequencies. The difference between the first and second frequency is stored in an isolation matrix and analyzed to determine the frequency isolation.
