The self-organisation of telecommunications networks has to confront the two challenges of the scalability and the stability of the solution. This paper describes a distributed, co-operative multiagent system in which agents make decisions based only on local knowledge â that guarantees scalability. Extensive simulations indicate that stability is ensured by the agentâs making improvements to the network settings that improve the social performance for all agents in a two-hop range. Our overall goal is simply to reduce maintenance costs for such networks by removing the need for humans to tune the network settings.
