This paper discusses some aspects of self-organisation in future cellular communications. In particular the effect sub-optimal base station positioning has on the overall interference level in the network. It is shown that the interference level. Increases with base station positioning error resulting in unacceptable dropping probability. With the incorporation of a simple power control algorithm, the network's sensitivity to error in base station positioning is reduced and an improvement in the performance is achieved. The results also show that a considerable tighter re-use pattern can be used in order to accommodate more users in the same spectrum.
