—Long-Term Evolution (LTE) planning is considered as one of the most important processes in the process of establishment mobile network. The planning process includes coverage planning and capacity planning. There are many parameters, which affect the network coverage planning, such as neighbor cell load, frequency range, bandwidth, e.t.c. By tuning these parameters, the network will provide the best performance from the view of coverage and capacity requirements. In this paper, the effect of changing different parameters on the maximum allowable path loss (MAPL) and cell range is presented. The results show that the cell limit increases when the network operates on 700 MHz range and on 20 MHz BW. Furthermore, it is shown that the load of neighbor eNB has a large effect on MAPL. Finally, it shows that there is a large difference between the cell limit in different clutter type.
