Weak Signal's description 
The SOCRATES project investigates the application of self-organisation methods, which includes mechanisms for self-optimisation, self-configuration and self-healing, as a promising opportunity to automate wireless access network planning and optimisation, thus reducing substantially the Operational Expenditure (OPEX) and improving network coverage, resource utilisation and service quality. Fundamental drivers for the deployment of self-organisation methods are the complexity of the contemporary heterogeneous access network technologies, the growing diversity in offered services and the need for enhanced competitiveness.
